Nearly a decade after George Clooney his father travelled to Dafur to make 'Journey to Darfur,' a documentary about the drought there, the Hollywood actor is once again lobbying for change in another poverty-stricken African nation.

Clooney has called for action in Sudan

Clooney, who is known for his humanitarian work throughout the large continent, has written a New York Times op-ed, titled 'Sudan's Rape of Darfur,' in which he details the ongoing conflict in Darfur, as well as the lasting effects the genocide that occurred almost ten years ago has had.

"Just last week, the regime reportedly convinced the peacekeeping mission to pull out of areas it says are stable, hoping no one takes a closer look," he wrote along with John Prendergast and Akshaya Kumar from the Enough Project, a non-profit organisation that aims to end genocide and crimes against humanity.

"As a result, mass atrocities continue to occur in Darfur with no external witness," Clooney added. While teaming with Prendergast and Kumar, Clooney also wanted to point out that through their work they've discovered evidence of "systematic burning and barrel bombing of at least half a dozen villages in Darfur's eastern Jebel Marra area last year."

"After collecting more than 130 eyewitness and survivor testimonies over the phone, (Human Rights Watch) researchers concluded that at least 221 women had been raped by soldiers of the Sudanese Army over a 36-hour period last October," the trio continued.

Although a huge amount of devastation and loss of life took place at that region nearly a decade ago, "over time, international outrage has shifted away from Darfur," but the struggle sand conflict within the people is far from over.

"When change doesn't come fast enough, attention spans are short - especially for places that appear to have no strategic importance," the 53-year-old actor wrote. "In the last two years, however, Darfur became important to the Sudanese government when major gold reserves were discovered in North Darfur, the region that includes Tabit."

Clooney then notes that the rapes of hundreds and thousands of Darfurian women occur in Tabit. "The 'torture rapes' in Tabit are a reminder to the world that the same conditions that led the United States' declaration of genocide in Darfur are still firmly in place, with devastating human consequences," they explained, while requesting a response to these travesties.

"We must not forget the survivors," they added. "And we must impose deterrent costs on the orchestrators and their enablers."
