‘Good News for the New Year’: Round-up of Satellite Sentinel Project Coverage

The launch of the Satellite Sentinel Project captured the attention of national and international news media last week, and has been prominently featured in dozens of countries. Anticipation is running high about what will be revealed by the first satellite images to be released later this week along with expert analysis from UNOSAT and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.

Follow the link for a round-up of initial Satellite Sentinel Project coverage, and visit www.satsentinel.org for a full overview of the project, as well as daily updates.

Time Magazine Satellite Sentinel Project Coverage: "Clooney's 'Antigenocide Paparazzi': Watching Sudan"

George Clooney and John Prendergast slumped down at a wooden table in a dusty school compound in southern Sudan.

If it did, the likelihood was that no one would be held accountable. Why not, Clooney asked, "work out some sort of a deal to spin a satellite" above southern Sudan and let the world watch to see what happens?

U.S. Should Suspend Normalization Talks with Sudan Regime; Impose Global Magnitsky Sanctions

The Enough Project strongly denounces the deadly violence the Sudanese regime has unleashed against peaceful protesters and supports the aspirations of the people of Sudan as they protest against three decades of mass atrocities and institutional corruption under the autocratic rule of President Omar al-Bashir. We call on the U.S. government, European governments, the African Union, and the broader international community to hold the Khartoum regime accountable for the many lives lost, injuries sustained, and countless protesters detained and tortured as the regime attempts to silence the Sudanese peoples’ struggle for democracy and good governance.
