Mr. Amal (George) Clooney, as he likes to be referred to now, may be a really pretty face and one of the world’s biggest movie star, but that is not all that defines him.
57-year-old George Timothy Clooney is not just a successful actor, director and billion dollar business owner. He is involved with multiple activism and human rights projects like ‘Not On Our Watch’, the ‘Enough Project’, the ‘Satellite Sentinel’ project and the ‘Sentry’ project.

Clooney vs. Sudan

Clooney has been a vocal critic of the situation in Darfur and has on numerous occasions pleaded with the government for a peaceful resolution of the conflict. 
In 2006, he visited Chad and Darfur with his father and made a documentary series ‘A Journey to Darfur’, that shone a light on the situation of refugees in Darfur. 

But this was just the beginning of his advocacy. He then wrote an open letter to Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, and other members of the European Union to act against Sudan President Omar al-Bashir, who is committing mass atrocities against people in Sudan.
Clooney then initiated the ‘Satellite Sentinel’ project with his collaborator and human rights activist, John Prendergast. The ‘Satellite Sentinel’, that was launched in 2010 after Clooney and Prendergast visited South Sudan.

The project aims to monitor the situation in South Sudan via satellite 24×7, all year round. The key of the project is to alert the US if the threat of civil war arises in South Sudan.
But, this is not all. Clooney has hired a team of forensic financial investigators to go over the books of the Sudanese government with a fine tooth-comb. He has, in the past, rooted out corruption in the Sudanese government by this method and continues to do so. 

But he does not limit his efforts to the vicinity of Sudan. He also makes sure he holds all parties outside Sudan, including banks in America that store Sudan’s money, accountable.
Clooney has also been arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy in the United States for civil disobedience. In 2012, Clooney and Martin Luther King III along with other prominent personalities were arrested for protesting against Omar al-Bashir. 
Clooney is touted to be one of Omar al-Bashir’s fiercest critics.

Clooney on gun control

But Clooney does not limit his focus on activism just outside the States. In 2018, he pledged over $500,000 to the ‘March of Our Lives’, the movement to protest rising gun violence in the country and said that both his wife and he will be present at the march.

Amal overshadows George

Clooney, who married human rights barrister Amal Alamuddin in 2014, has also been an outspoken critic of the Syrian government’s actions. But, both wife and husband have devoted their efforts to help the refugees in Syria.
Amal has taken up the fight against ISIL to the International War Crimes tribunal in the Hague on behalf of the Yazidi community, where she is representing Nadia Murad.

She has spoken in front of the United Nations and called out ISIS’s practices of genocide, rape and human trafficking as a ‘bureaucracy of evil on an industrial scale’

It’s hard to keep up with all the humanitarian projects George has been involved in for the past two decades.  A good man doing good work!  

Yep the Elle pics are lovely.
