    Against a backdrop of Sudan’s ongoing attacks against civilians in Darfur, its alleged war crimes spree in the oil-producing border regions of Abyei and South Kordofan, and most recently its indiscriminate bombing of civilians in Blue Nile State, it might sound counterintuitive to proclaim this as an unprecedented moment of opportunity for Sudan. But Enough Project Co-founder John Prendergast makes precisely that case in the latest policy essay from the Enough Project, “What the Arab Spring Means for Sudan.”

    The Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) has obtained visual evidence, and new eyewitness reports, of three more mass grave sites in and around Kadugli, capital of Sudan’s conflict-torn Southern Kordofan state. Satellite imagery reveals what appear to be two piles of corpses wrapped in body bags or tarps on a wooded mountainside. Rising above the site are the town’s landmark, giant words of welcome: “Kadugli, The Town of Love and Peace.” The painted, white Arabic lettering is visible by anyone who flies in or drives through.

    The partition of Sudan creates a major opportunity for a re-set in U.S. policy toward both Sudan and South Sudan, the Enough Project said in a new paper. The urgent human rights crisis in the Nuba Mountains, the continuing emergency in Darfur, the successful secession of the South, and the political reforms sweeping across North Africa and the Middle East provide unprecedented entry points for the U.S. and other interested parties to finally address the root causes of Sudan's cyclical conflicts.

    Celebrities are becoming a significant contributing factor to human rights advocacy in Africa.

    "Celebrities who use their fame to highlight the plight of some of the world's most vulnerable people are making a real difference. They have educated countless people and shined a light on issues that would otherwise remain shrouded in darkness. By recruiting thousands of people to relatively unknown causes, they help create a real pressure for change,” said Co-founder of the Enough Project John Prendergast, who works closely with many of the organization’s celebrity partners.

    To highlight celebrities who have partnered to date with the Enough Project on various campaigns and initiatives, the Enough Project has launched an online Celebrity Upstanders database. This new web resource includes 44 celebrity profiles that feature video clips, press interviews, and opinion pieces, highlighting each individual celebrity’s involvement with the Enough Project, and its conflict areas in the Sudan, DR Congo, and LRA-affected communities.
