The protesters accuse Sudan’s president, http://cupidfemalecondoms.com/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor.php Omar al-Bashir, of provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains in the county’s border region with South Sudan.
Clooney said Friday that he hopes to draw more attention to the issue and is impressed with President Barack Obama’s personal engagement on it.
The actor also said that if action is not taken in the next three to four months “we’re going to have a real humanitarian disaster.”
Clooney was joined by his father, Nick, and Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia, among others, as he walked to the protest site. The group held a sign that read: “Sudan: Stop Weapons of Mass Starvation.”
Bahsir is under immense pressure to allow UN drop relief items in the Blue Nile and Kordofan regions which have been gravely affected by a rebellion by S. Sudan rebels against Bashir’s dictatorship.
Khartoum officials have since maintained they would allow supplies as long as UN cooperated with them.
The standoff has left thousands starved and on the brink of death.
