Debuting in a blog post by Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times, a new video co-produced by the Enough Project and Not On Our Watch captures the precariousness of the present moment in Sudan, as the country prepares for a historic vote expected to split it in two. The video, "Endgame in Sudan," gets further mileage out of actor George Clooney’s recent trip to the South, where he met with people living in communities in the volatile border region. It includes footage from the village of Maryal Bai -- hometown of Valentino Deng, the protagonist of Dave Eggers's What Is the What.
The Satellite Sentinel Project, or SSP, a partnership between the Enough Project and DigitalGlobe, conducts monitoring of the border between Sudan and South Sudan to assess the human security situation, identify potential threats to civilians, and detect, deter and document war crimes and crimes against humanity. The Enough Project provides field research, policy context, and communications strategy. DigitalGlobe provides imagery from its constellation of satellites and geospatial analysis from the DigitalGlobe Analysis Center. SSP is funded primarily by Not On Our Watch.
