Obama: Change our Policy on Sudan
Add your voice to the WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO
Change US policy to confront the government of Sudan for ongoing mass atrocities and act to protect innocent civilians
Recent events in Southern Kordofan, Blue Nile, Abyei and Darfur prove that the government of Sudan is continuing to use the same deadly methods that it has employed for years against its own people: attacking civilians on a broad scale with its army, militia and air force; limiting and blocking humanitarian assistance to millions displaced by attacks; and focusing US attention on negotiations that are not honored. It is time for significantly escalated action by the United States consistent with the Responsibility to Protect doctrine. Condemnations of new war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide are necessary, but not sufficient.8 years after the start of the Darfur genocide, it is time for escalated action by the US to stop the genocides and mass atrocities in Sudan.
We need 5,000 signatures in 30 days in order for the White House staff to review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.
