Greetings On-Line Family

 

Where ever you are in the World today, you must be aware of the Conflict in Defur, Sudan.  The enormous amounts of killings, rapes and displacement of citizens of this country have been taking place since 2003.  We were made aware of this unfortunate situation several years ago by our local radio announcer Mr. Joe Madison "Madison The Black Eagle" from WOL radio station, which also broadcasts on XM Radio.   Mr. Madison has been one of the major advocates in the forefront who has been fighting to get this unfortunate situation stopped, and for it to be exposed to the people of the United States and Worldwide (with the hope that we can help bring a stop to the situation).  For years the conflict in Defur has been taking place and has escalated, it is reported by World Food Program, The United Nations and the Coalition for International Justice, 3.5 Million people are now hungry, 2.5 have been displaced due to violence, and 400,00 people have died thus far.  This Genocide must stop now!!!!  

This week there was a rally here in DC on the Capitol to stop the Genocide and Save Defur, which had a great turnout.  Actor George Clooney who recently visited Defur and saw the atrocity first hand spoke out on this violence.  

 

"If we turn our heads and look away and hope that it will all disappear then they will - all of them, an entire generation of people. And we will have only history left to judge us."- George Clooney  April 30, 2006, Washington

So we are asking you to help with this movement.  One of our on-line family sent us information on how we can help, see the below letter for all the details.

 

Dear Friend:
I am writing to let you know I just signed a postcard to President

Bush asking him to take action to stop the genocide in Darfur.

 Will you join me? Visit http://www.MillionVoicesForDarfur.org  
to send your postcard today!

 Right now a campaign of rape, slaughter and displacement 
is currently being carried out in the western region of Sudan, 
the largest country in Africa. Government-supported troops have 		
displaced 2.5 million people in the past two years, hundreds of 
thousands have died due to attacks, disease and starvation, and 
it is estimated that 500 men, women and children continue to die 
every day.
You can make a difference today by sending a postcard to President 
Bush at http://www.MillionVoicesForDarfur.org; 
http://www.MillionVoicesForDarfur.org.  

We must put pressure on our national leaders to take immediate 
action.  President Bush and the United States Congress have 
recognized the situation in Darfur as "genocide," but it will take
much more than words to end the violence and suffering in Darfur.

In fact this recognition imposes a legal obligation, let alone the 
inherent moral obligation, upon the U.S. to take action to stop the
genocide.

 Visit http://www.MillionVoicesForDarfur.org to send your postcard

 today! http://www.MillionVoicesForDarfur.org.  If our 
leaders made Darfur a priority, hundreds of thousands of

 lives could be saved.

Please join me in calling for immediate attention to Darfur and more
robust action on behalf of the U.S. to support security efforts in the
region.

  Visit http://www.MillionVoicesforDarfur.org to send an online
postcard to President Bush and to learn more about what is happening in 
 
Darfur and what you can do to help.

Some History on the Situation in Defur, Sudan

 

"Open warfare erupted in Darfur in early 2003 when the two loosely allied rebel groups, the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLA) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), attacked military installations. This was followed closely by peace agreements brokered by the United States to end the twenty-year-old civil war in the south of Sudan which allocated government positions and oil revenue to the rebels in the south. At that time rebels in Darfur, seeking an end to the region's chronic economic and political marginalization, also took up arms to protect their communities against a twenty-year campaign by government-backed militias recruited among groups of Arab extraction in Darfur and Chad. These "Janjaweed" militias have over the past year received government support to clear civilians from areas considered disloyal to the Sudanese government. Militia attacks and a scorched-earth government offensive has led to massive displacement, indiscriminate killings, looting and mass rape, all in infringement of the 1949 Geneva Convention that prohibits attacks on civilians.

The war, which risks inflicting irreparable damage on a delicate ethnic balance of seven million people who are uniformly Muslim, is actually multiple intertwined conflicts. One is between government-aligned forces and rebels; a second entails indiscriminate attacks of the government-sponsored Janjaweed militia on civilians; and a third involves a struggle among Darfur communities themselves. Its implications go far beyond Darfur's borders. The war indirectly threatens the regimes in both Sudan and Chad and has the potential to inspire insurgencies in other parts"
