Urgent Action: Tell Secretary Clinton to honor humanitarian work by acting on civilian protection in Sudan.

August 19th is World Humanitarian Day. There must be more than words, in honoring the heroic, essential work by humanitarian workers in Sudan. U.S. Sudan policy continues to be AWOL on civilian protection. The Government of Sudan has blocked humanitarian organizations from Kalma IDP camp in Southern Darfur, leaving approximately 100,000 civilians without protection services. It has also stated its intention to dismantle the camp, which could be disastrous to a population that has constantly been under siege and in danger. Furthermore, President al-Bashir is threatening to expel the UN protection force and aid organizations from Darfur.

Tell Secretary Clinton to go beyond words and implement the AWOL U.S. Sudan Policy:
