SUDAN| Prendergast and Clooney discuss Sudan’s upcoming referendum


Sudan is the victim of northern Sudan’s subjugation.
Prendergast affirmed the multifaceted nature of the situ-
ation in Sudan but stressed that the majority of human
rights violations can be credited to the oppressive Su-
danese government located in northern Sudan.
“There is a lot of blood on a lot of hands in southern
Sudan,”Prendergast said.However,“the vast preponder-
ance of the human rights violations were committed by
the forces of the government of Sudan and the associat-
ed militia.”
Grounding the conversation in realistic terms for
politicians, Clooney implied the need to incentivize Unit-
ed States intervention in Sudan by highlighting the im-
mense benefit of interceding the conflict: the opportuni-
ty to tap into the Sudanese oil wells.
Sudan “also happens to be a place where we could use
some oil,” Clooney said. From the perspective of United
States politics, he added, “we could dip into that oil well
as well.”
Prendergast discussed the possible objectives U.S. in-
tervention could have. “What the government in Sudan
spends all their time talking about is when can they get to
roll back all the American sanctions, to get off the terror-
ist list, to remove all the scarlet letters on their vests that
the U.S. has been putting on them for years,” Prendergast
said. “The Sudanese government cares about these
sometimes symbolic economic and political points of iso-
lation.”
In Prendergast’s opinion, though, the real potential to
invoke change in Sudan emerges at the local level, partic-
ularly at politically active institutions such as Stanford.
“If you want to make a change somewhere, you have
to have the political will,” Prendergast said.“Political will
has been generated over the last number of years be-
cause of schools like Stanford, which has generated stu-
dent movements with respect to Darfur and south
Sudan.”
Clooney concluded the discussion, expressing opti-
mism in placing the future of Sudan in the hands of the
individual and exhorting the audience to speak out
against allowing ambivalence to exacerbate the Sudan
conflict.
“We have always in our lifetime caught these things
after they happened,” Clooney stressed.“We were late to
Rwanda.We were late to Bosnia.We were late to Darfur.
You have an opportunity that has never happened be-
fore: to stop it before it happens . . . your voice right now
can save lives.”
