"Why Target China?

While China continues to be Sudan's largest economic and diplomatic ally, the genocide in Darfur continues in Darfur. China has done very little to help end the suffering. China will host the 2008 Olympic Games in August 2008. In doing so, the Chinese government hopes to bask in the glow of the Olympic ideals of global peace and cooperation.

But China's efforts to polish its international image can't hide the fact that it has not done enough to stop genocide in Darfur. The games China is playing in Beijing cannot hide the games that China is playing in Darfur.

China is a rising global power and Sudan's close economic, military, and diplomatic partner. It is the one government in the world -- except Sudan itself -- that can bring an end to genocide in Darfur." Source: http://www.savedarfur.org/page/conten...

Rhode Island Dream for Darfur Torch Relay

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," (Martin Luther King Jr.)

On October 27, 2007, The Rhode Island Dream for Darfur Torch Relay and Ceremony took place in Providence. Ordinary people came together to stand united with others around the world with the unified message to bring the Beijing Olympics theme of "One World, One Dream" to Darfur. With our presence we said "'Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.'* We were there to say we will not be silent about Darfur." *Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Keynote speakers were twin nineteen year old Rwandans, Edward and Edwin Mutanguha, freshmen at Salve Regina University in Newport.

Edwin said, "Today, we are all uniting for a common cause, all from different backgrounds, but with one thing in mind, to be responsible for each other and be conscious of what is going on around us. Our world is becoming a global village and it is no longer possible for us to live obliviously and inconsiderately."

Edward spoke from his heart "I would like to remind everybody about something that you have that the rest of the world envies: your FREEDOM. With this freedom, comes rights. I urge you to use your rights as citizens of a free nation to help the people of Darfur obtain their freedom and their right to live."

Music was provided by the Rhode Island Darfur Ensemble.

WHEN WE DO NOTHING TO STOP THE INJUSTICE
