Call on G8 leaders to Stand Up for Darfur
Hello friend and family of Stop Genocide Now,
SGN is joining forty-six other organizations in demanding that our world leaders at this year’s G8 Summit in Hokkaido, Japan, focus and act on one of the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today. The G8 Summit comes at a perilous time for Darfur, the whole of Sudan, and the entire region. Intensified violence in Darfur has resulted in more death and displacement, and recent fighting in the Abyei region of Sudan suggests the unraveling of the fragile North/South peace agreement. The instability we recently witnessed in Chad is another alarming red flag.
Stop Genocide Now will be one of many sponsoring a letter and petition to Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada, President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy, Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda of Japan, President Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev of the Russian Federation, Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and President George W. Bush of the United States of America. We would like to encourage our supporters to read the letter and sign the petition, letting our world leaders know that ignoring the genocide in Darfur is unacceptable.
As always, thank you for your support and commitment.
