From the Save Darfur Coalition

An issue that transcends partisan politics in the US...

Murder. Rape. Starvation. Displacement. These are everyday occurrences in Darfur where already 400,000 men, women, and children have been killed and over 2.5 million people have been forced from their homes.

A UN peacekeeping force remains the only hope to bring peace to the region.

But the peacekeeping force - already authorized by the UN Security Council - might never make it to Darfur if the Sudanese government doesn't agree to let it in. That's why it's so important that our world leaders ramp up the pressure and demand that the peacekeepers are admitted.

Click here to send a message to President Bush and UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Remind them that the international community is watching, and that we refuse to let the atrocities in Darfur continue.

Join us in demanding that President Bush and Secretary-General Annan:

  • Push for immediate deployment of the already authorized UN peacekeeping force.
  • Strengthen the understaffed African Union force already in Darfur until the UN force is deployed.
  • Negotiate a fair and lasting Peace Agreement.
  • Increase humanitarian aid and ensure access for its delivery.

Never before has the U.N. authorized a peacekeeping force that wasn't eventually deployed. Click here to tell our leaders not to let Darfur become the exception.

Saving Darfur may not be easy, but how will history judge us if we do not?

Thank you for reading this and increasing awareness of this issue. Thanks again for those who decide to act.
