More on Darfur

A really good resource for information about Darfur is found at the Guardian (a British paper).

They have a Q & A about the conflict. And a whole section on Special Reports about Sudan.

This is a letter from the Save Darfur Coalition If you haven't taken action yet please take 3 minutes and send a letter to your congressional delegation and other leaders. I thank you and the millions of men, women, and children who are impacted thank you.

Dear friends,

Did you know that 2.5 million people have been driven from their homes in Darfur, Sudan? Each day, they face threats that are hard for us to even imagine including rape, disease, and starvation.

These people need our help to put an end to the genocide and they need it NOW.

Please join me in taking the first step to stopping the violence.

Click the link below to sign the Save Darfur Coalition's petition urging President Bush and UN Secretary-General Ban to take immediate steps to stop the killing.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of millions of people in the region who desperately need outside help.

The Save Darfur Coalition is urging President Bush and the UN Secretary-General to prevent further killings, displacement, and rape by deploying UN peacekeepers, strengthening the understaffed African Union force that is already in Darfur, establishing and enforcing a no-fly zone, increasing humanitarian aid, and ensuring access for delivery of food, medication and other essential supplies.

Please do not stand by while the violence continues - you can make a difference. Click below now to get involved.

Then please forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to join you.

If you'd like to make a donation to support the campaign, click the link below.

Thanks for your help.
