Despite rosy reports from Obama Administration officials, very bad things continue to happen in Sudan. The most recent example from a long list of ongoing human rights violations and broken commitments by the Government of Sudan is a recent offensive by the government of Sudan in the Jebel Marra region of Darfur, which has killed hundreds in the last several weeks and driven up to 100,000 people from their homes. In the midst of these ongoing violations, the Administration has heralded faltering, exclusionary peace talks on Darfur as “major progress” and a “landmark” and continues to wrongly support the upcoming elections which have no chance of being either free or fair.
The U.S Sudan policy is not only adrift but is enabling gross human rights violations. We urgently need Members of Congress to engage on this important topic.
Please write to the four members of Congress who oversee foreign affairs. Ask them to urgently press the Obama Administration, both privately and publicly, for greater accountability on the U.S. policy toward Sudan.
Sign letter and add your comment to Senators Kerry and Lugar and Representatives Ros-Lehtinen and Berman.
