Seven Days for Sudan: A Super-Activist Challenge

Each day and for 7 consecutive days, beginning Monday, August 23rd, we will take over, attack (peacefully) and OWN the Facebook pages and Twitter accounts of 7 influential Members of Congress. 50 or more activists will make sure that the message is being heard loud and clear.

Here we go! It will take less than 7 minutes. Promise!

Please post the message below – or even better, your personal variation of it – on the Facebook pages for these 7 influential Members of Congress (note: only do one per day, as per the list below)::

Monday, August 23: Nancy Pelosi’s Facebook Page
Tuesday, August 24: Richard Lugar’s Facebook Page
Wednesday, August 25: John Kerry’s Facebook Page
Thursday, August 26: Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s Facebook Page
Friday, August 27: Howard Berman’s Facebook Page
Saturday, August 28: Russell D. Feingold’s Facebook Page
Sunday, August 29: Johnny Isakson’s Facebook Page

Sudan needs your help. Thank you for your work in Congress in the fight against mass atrocities and the protection of human rights. Please call President Obama and ask him to make the right decision for Sudan. Please pass on our message: Mr. President, the true measure of U.S. Sudan policy is conditions on the ground. Current U.S. Sudan policy is failing. In Darfur, mass human rights violations, repression and instability are on the rise. Tensions between the North and South are mounting, and the danger of conflict that may result in massive civilian casualties is very real. You have a decision to make about the U.S. Sudan policy. We urge you to implement your announced comprehensive policy of incentives and pressures, rallying the world for lasting peace and justice in all of Sudan. For over 20 years, Sudan has been the home to some of the worst human rights abuses in the world. Your decision could change this. Millions of lives are at stake. (http://bit.ly/c8IUvv)
