“There is no sense of urgency that this is a crucial moment,” a State Department official is quoted as saying about Sudan in a NY Times article. The quote comes at the end of the article by Times reporter Neil MacFarquhar that focuses on the alarmingly deteriorating situation in Darfur. This lack of urgency is also coming at a time when Sudan is less than six months away from a vote that might split the country in two. There is real danger that Africa’s largest country could explode into what could be this decade’s deadliest war, as the U.S. policy on Sudan sits on the shelves.
Tell Secretary Clinton that this is the moment to fully engage for peace and justice in all of Sudan:

Secretary Clinton: Your engagement on U.S. Sudan policy is immediately needed. “There is no sense of urgency that this is a crucial moment,” a State Department official is quoted as saying about Sudan in a NY Times article (http://nyti.ms/9xNgeS). With Darfur violence alarmingly on the increase and the referendum that might split Africa’s largest country in two less than six months away, now is the moment for the Obama administration to implement its Sudan policy. Now is the moment to make a full press for peace and justice in all of Sudan and avert what could be the deadliest war on your watch.
