From the University of Southern Maine

#BringClooney2ME

What: One focus of MeMUNC2012 is the plight of the Sudanese people. Despite South Sudan's successful bid for independence in 2011, violence in the region has not ceased. Fueled by ethnic tensions, clashes over the rights to water and natural resources are commonplace, as are border disputes and conflicts over the distribution of the vast oil wealth of South Sudan. This year, our International Criminal Court (ICC) will hold a mock trial of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is accused of crimes against humanity, genocide, and war crimes against his own people.

Who:
A vocal proponent of international aid for the Sudanese people is actor and advocate George Clooney. Propelling this issue into the national media spotlight, Mr. Clooney was recently arrested while protesting outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington DC. Here at MeMUNC, we hope to continue the momentum started by Mr. Clooney, and raise awareness of this problem throughout New England!

How: We are reaching out to Mr. Clooney in an attempt to bring him to Maine to speak before the hundreds of future-leaders in attendance at MeMUNC. Friends and supporters of our program can aid our efforts by following our social media campaign and by declaring with one loud voice that we want to #BringClooney2ME!

Actor George Clooney is an activist who is working for peace and an end to the genocide and atrocities that are being committed in Sudan. This year's Maine Model United Nations Conference (MeMUNC) will address Sudanese leader al Bashir's crimes against humanity. MeMUNC participants are high school and middle school students from Maine and New England. We are trying to get George Clooney to come speak to our students about this issue; it is a cause he believes strongly in and his presence will be very educational for our students.

I was active in Model UN at UCLA. We flew to New York to participate in a college student mock UN forum. Really learned how difficult it was to get anything accomplished. Perhaps G could skype a message to these students. Would focus attention on the issue.

I agree with Melbert.
These kids could learn so much from George.
Help these kids light up a flame in their heart in helping the less fortunate.
