Darfur Blogging Against Genocide

20 Oct

Black Perspective posts of Afrosphere Darfur Action Coalition to Blog for Darfur day.

Wednesday the 24th of October take some time off to join everyone and Blog for Darfur.

Check Black Perspective net for specifics of the campaign, and let them know you are participating.

The congress and presidential email links are on the sidebar here. Post the links for your readers, so they can let their representatives, and our president, know of their concern and their desire for a resolution, an end, to the genocide in Darfur.

Educate your readers about Darfur. You would be surprised how many people are still unaware of the situation in Darfur.

Continue the campaign of international activist to stop selling weapons to Sudan and press Khartoum to admit U.N. peacekeepers.
We speak a lot of China here and despite the fact that Buffet did not divest all his holdings of Petro China due to his objection to the genocide, he divested for economic reasons, we need to continue to encourage divestment in Petro China due to China’s unwillingness, despite hosting the next Olympic games, to take a stronger stand on Darfur.
Read Ben Naimark-Rowse pieces at Table for One if you haven’t already, it’s fairly comprehensive and may give you a clearer picture.

We must keep Darfur in the news, and do what we can to aid humanitarian organizations on the ground in Darfur.

According to some sources there are still “Khartoum backed armed groups carry out daily attacks inside Darfur biggest camp in order to spread violence and force internally displaced persons to evacuate the camps.”

Violence which is making it increasingly difficult for humanitarian aid agencies.

“Gunman killed three U.N. World Food Programme (WFP) drivers in the last week, while agency compounds have been raided, staff abducted and equipment stolen.
The new peace keepers — mainly African infantry with a handful of troops from other nations — will replace a much smaller African Union force that has largely failed to halt violence in a region the size of France.
Aid agencies — some of whom have lobbied for years for U.N. peacekeepers — say their situation now is so bad that they have to withdraw from some areas and cut back operations. Some reports suggest malnutrition rates are rising as a result.”

    Darfur has already happened, just like we saw in Rwanda a few years ago. But, believe or not, we have yet to see an end to genocide in Africa as long as the great powers continue to seek dominance of mone another. There is no end to their strategic and geo-politic interests in Africa. It is sabreach of duty deriving from intyernational law, so efforts must be mounted to henceforth hold the UN Security Council accountable for breach of international law.
