We need to be loud and consistent with our voices for Darfur. Wake Up, Brush Your Teeth, Call Your Leaders provides consistency if we all pledge to contact our leaders at least once a day. Today, take your consistency a step beyond. The ENOUGH Project has put forth the policies the Obama Administration should take for Darfur. Of five immediate recommendations, they have only appointed a Special Envoy, J. Scott Gration. The State Department has opened a public blog and asked us, the people, what we should happen in Darfur. Please post a personal message along with Enough Projects recommendations:
President Obama, The crisis in Darfur is dire. We need you to take swift action. Please discuss the following with Special Envoy Gration:
1. Support the ICC and the indictment of al-Bashir
2. Ensure the protection of the innocent civilians of Darfur and provide adequate support to the UNAMID Peacekeeping mission.
3. Work with other nations to create a road map for peace in Darfur and Sudan with multilateral pressure points and incentives.
4. Prepare a credible range of options for the use of military force to protect civilians and ensure the unobstructed delivery of humanitarian assistance.
