Remember the Sudanese refugees

On Friday, December 18th, the Jordanian government deported 585 Sudanese refugees back to Sudan, ignoring the outcry of the international community. I grew close to this warm and resilient community during my time in Jordan working with JRS; however, I also saw firsthand that Sudanese refugees are truly living at the margins, overshadowed by Jordan’s other refugee influxes and overlooked in service provision. Jordan was home to approximately 4,000 Sudanese, primarily Darfuri, refugees and asylum seekers before the deportation.

George Clooney | Arrested Development

Just hours ago American actor George Clooney was arrested in Washington D.C. outside of the Sudan embassy during heated protesting against the violence against the Sudanese people by the Sudan government and also calling for the Sudanese government to allow more humanitarian aid into the country. Clooney was given three warnings to leave the property but was eventually booked while fighting for justice. The arrest occurs just two days after Clooney testified before the Senate Foreign Relations committee after arriving back into the United States from a trip to Sudan.
