George Clooney is known for his activism as much as for his work as an actor and director. Clooney has long been an advocate for people in the conflict-ridden Darfur region of Sudan, and now he’s taking up the cause again. Clooney has returned to Sudan to bring attention to tensions there that are expected to become a full-fledged civil war.
“I think it can be stopped,” Clooney said on NBC’s Today show this morning. “We stopped [the previous Darfur conflict] in 2005 with diplomacy. We didn’t stop it with soldiers. So, yes, if we get involved now, we have a shot.”
