ABSTRACT
The article discusses an international effort called the Satellite Sentinel Project that started using artificial satellites to monitor troop movements in Sudan as of December 30, 2010. The idea is attributed to U.S. actor George Clooney, coming out of meetings he had with human rights activist John Prendergast. The plan is to remind leaders in northern and southern Sudan that the world is watching as southern Sudan votes for independence.
