Again on the battle lines of Darfur...

We watched another video on Darfur. This one was created by an ex Marine Capitan who joined some company and was sent to be an observer in Sudan to watch the ceasefire between the North and South. While there he kept hearing reports of bloodshed in Darfur and asked to be reassigned to that area. While there he photographed and sent reports up the chain of command. Upon coming home we found a somber state of affairs. A government that doesn't do shit to stop anything, people of America who don't care to make their government do something. A state of America that still exist today. It is something to see me cry, or refugees cry but it was odd to see this Ex-Marine crying because while he was there for six months he could do nothing to help...


So I did some research there's some stuff we can do.

Ask your congress to co-sponsor H.R. 2489: Genocide Accountability Act of 2007 same as (S 888).


On July 31st, the Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act, H.R. 180, passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 418 to 1. But, before it can become law the Senate must take action. This bill:
* Protects state and local divestment
* Prohibits U.S. government contracts with companies fueling the genocide
* Authorizes states to prohibit contracts with companies fueling the genocide

Ask your Senator to support the Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act, House Bill 180.

I ask that if you care about Darfur, and do not want to see another Genocide like that of Rwanda, and also if you support me in what I am becoming passionate about call:

1800-GENOCIDE :-) It's actually a good call and painless. DO IT NOW!

And Remember that 2,400 people are killed weekly.

Women Raped, Babies Smashed Against The Ground, Men Killed for Trying to Make Them Stop. All supported by the government of Sudan... our president and those around him have even labeled this as Genocide and has failed to do anything.
