DEAR PEOPLE ON EARTH, WILL YOU PLEASE CARE ABOUT OTHERS IN NEED?

NOTE: This blog is nearly at its end as the 5 GB free space is 88% full. Which at the time I run out of space on this blog, I will most likely begin a blog somewhere else.  At that time, I will put a link here to the new blog.


As we plan for a blizzard here in the northeastern USA, in Sudan, they can't even make plans to remain in their homes and neighborhoods. Their government has been bombing their homes for many years and humanity has done nothing and worse isn't even aware of the news that our media has 
ignored increasingly over the last several years.

As head of the UN in Sudan in 2003-4, Professor Mukesh Kapila blew the whistle on the Darfur crisis. Now the Aegis Trust's Special Representative on Crimes Against Humanity, in January 2013, he took this journey back to Sudan to visit the forgotten warzones of the Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan, Blue Nile State, and South Sudan's frontier with Darfur. Meeting civilians bombed out of their homes and cut off from international humanitarian relief for over 18 months, he saw extensive evidence of war crimes on the part of Omar Bashir's government in Khartoum, and witnessed the consequences of the international community's failure to respond effectively to Sudan's ongoing crises.

A video I put together April 8, 2011 for a submission to the Compassion Film Festival in Newport, Rhode Island, screenings at the 494 seat Jane Pickens Theatre, April 8, 2011. The Festival rules limited the video submissions to 5 minutes. Unfortunately the lips and audio became out of snyc due to compression of uploading here at Youtube. Fortunately, the DVD of this video is in sync.

 

Will you and your group join a fast in solidarity and to strengthen our commitment to Sudan?

Once again, i-ACT and Stop Genocide Now are launching a 100-Day Fast for Darfur (http://www.iactivism.org/100-day-fast-darfur/). It will begin on April 6, the day the Rwandan Genocide started and end July 14, 2013. We hope people will join by fasting water-only or refugee rations of 1000 or less. 

You can read his full blog, 10 years of Darfur, 100 Days for Darfur, and sign up for the fast here.

February will be 10 years of targeted killing and violence against Dafuris in Sudan.  There will be many opportunities to act in the coming months, and we hope that you conceder fasting as one of those. If you are part of a group or organization, please share your commitment to fast with them and invite them to join.
