George Clooney took time out of being one of the biggest movie stars in the world recently, to bring attention to the war crimes in Sudan. George went to Sudan to make a documentary about the devastation, which he showed in the US Senate describing the war crimes to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Clooney explained, "These are not military targets. They are innocent women and children. That is a fact. We found children filled with shrapnel, including a 9-year-old boy who had both of his hands blown off."
He added, "It is a campaign of murder, fear and displacement and starvation. They are proving themselves to be the greatest war criminals of this century by far." Senator John Kerry then praised George Clooney for his inspiring work.
Kerry told Clooney, "This is a tremendous example of the best citizen activism." When the meeting eventually came to an end, George Clooney rose from his seat and walked straight back into his Hollywood lifestyle, being hounded by journalists, paparazzi and people wishing him well. However, his moving film certainly touched a fair few people.
