The deadly genocide in Darfur has continued pretty much unabated, despite growing pressure from the world community.  Sudanese President al-Bashir continues to encourage the violence despite repeated promises for peace and security.  He continues to stonewall and prevent UN troops from entering the region and expects the 7,000 African Union troops to provide security for an area the size of Texas! Already about 400,000 men, women, and children have been killed while over 2 million have been forced to leave their homes. This is sad and ridiculous.

Here are a few videos you can watch and then a few links to actions that you can take to try and help stop this horrific atrocity.

Genocide Intervention Network

Save Darfur

Sudan Divestment Task Force

24 Hours for Darfur

World Vision

Fort Wayne’s Darfur Peace & Development Org

There are so many more resources.  Please take a moment and take an action that has the chance of saving so many lives.

How many more need to die before we take action?
