Saving Sudan Sunday's

Why Save the Darfur Region of Sudan?

Read these new articles below. Let's help end Ethnic Cleansing in Darfur!

Q&A: Your questions about Darfur
The BBC's East Africa correspondent, Karen Allen, answers your questions about Darfur, the war-torn region in western Sudan.

Why Saving Darfur Matters (TPM Cafe)

Unless we do help, we risk the sort of abandonment scenario we've seen in other places and at other times that have only emboldened the evildoers. This is why saving Darfuris matters and why it's important to find some way –- and there are no pat answers –- to tell Bashir he does not have a green light to kill. It may just stop him and his killers in their tracks, and it may just preempt the next great genocidal maniacs from trying the same thing.
Students fast for Darfur Benefit (Stanford Daily)
More than 2,000 Stanford students pledged to fast yesterday in a show of solidarity with the victims of the ongoing genocide in Darfur, Sudan, raising $27,000 in the process.

Letter: Student speaks out on Darfur

In 1979, President Jimmy Carter declared that in memory of the Holocaust, "we must forge an unshakeable oath with all civilized people that never again will the world stand silent, never again will the world fail to act in time to prevent this terrible crime of genocide."

Every year students in the public school system are taught the horrors of the Holocaust, but what about the genocide happening right now? What about the lives of the Darfurian people today, as the Jews during the days of the Holocaust, the Armenians when the Turks systematically slaughtered them, the Kurds in Iraq under the genocidal regime of Saddam Hussein, the Rwandan Tutsis suffering under the Hutus and the Croat and Muslim "ethnic cleansing" operated by the Serbs in the newly formed Bosnia.
