This Friday, join the San Francisco Bay Area Darfur Coalition begin your weekly commitment to Darfur Fridays and Keep International Focus on Darfur. This month use your weekly actions to ask President Bush to reconsider his plan to attend the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games because of China’s relationship to Sudan. Click on this link to ask your Congressperson to co-sponsor House Res. 1093 making this request of the President. To date, only 20 Congresspersons have co-sponsored this resolution asking the President not to attend the opening ceremonies unless China (1) persuades Sudan to both end violent attacks in Darfur and allow for the full deployment of the United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur; and (2) takes steps to stop arms sales to Sudan.
