Stand up for the people of Sudan and show the world that 10 years of conflict is 10 years too long. Sign the petition telling world leaders that they must act to end this conflict once and for all.
TEN YEARS AGO, the Government of Sudan began a genocide against civilians in Darfur killing more than 300,000 and displacing almost 4 million Darfuris. Despite attempts at peace, the killing continues today.
EVEN WITH a U.N. peacekeeping force on the ground, Darfuris remain vulnerable to attacks and extreme human rights violations. Since 2010, the UN has reported more than 200 attacks in Darfur.
THE SUDANESE GOVERNMENT is the main perpetrator of violence against civilians in Darfur. The government has obstructed U.N. peacekeeping forces, refused to prosecute individuals charged with genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, blocked international aid, used aerial bombardment against civilians, and extended its attacks on civilians beyond Darfur.
THE CONTINUED DISPLACEMENT of more than 2 million people has created a long-standing humanitarian crisis in Darfur. And the U.N. estimates that another million people have been displaced or severely affected by violence in the states of Abyei, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile.
THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY joined together to bring the world’s attention to Darfur once—now it’s time to call for action again. Join us in demanding that the international community and U.N. bring an end to aerial bombardment and other attacks on civilians, condemn unlawful detention and human rights abuses in Khartoum and elsewhere, provide aid to the millions suffering, and push for a just and lasting peace for Darfur and all of Sudan.
