Ten years ago the Government of Sudan carried out genocide against Darfur civilians systematically murdering 300,000 & displacing over 2 million people.
The killing continues today.
Save Darfur is a powerful movement of activists, faith leaders, students, artists, & genocide survivors to bring an end to the suffering in Darfur and other areas in Sudan under attack.
help end genocide forever
In 2003, after decades of neglect, drought, oppression and small-scale conflicts in Sudan's western region of Darfur, two rebel groups mounted an insurgency against Sudan's central government. In response, the regime of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and its allied militia, known as the Janjaweed, launched a campaign of destruction against civilians of similar ethnic background as the rebels.
They wiped out entire villages, destroyed food and water supplies, and systematically murdered, tortured and raped thousands of Darfuris.
In September 2004, President George W. Bush declared the crisis in Darfur a "genocide". Despite the world's outcry, the violence continued and in recent years has spread to other states in Sudan.
In Darfur, over 130,000 people have been displaced in 2013. Aerial bombardment and blockage of humanitarian relief in South Kordofan and Blue Nile has led to over 900,000 in need of humanitarian aid.
We demand free and unfettered access for international aid and strengthening the international peacekeeping force.
In July 2011, South Sudan gained independence from Sudan, marking a major milestone for peace. However the situation in Darfur remains dire and critical issues remain unresolved and threaten a return to war.
We are working to end human rights violations, promote democratic transformation and create peace.
Survivors are demanding that the individuals responsible for rape, murder and destruction of villages and livelihoods be held accountable.
We call for the imposition of sanctions on anyone who provides weapons to Sudan or fails to execute arrest warrants against Sudanese officials, including President Bashir.
When the reports of widespread killings and hints of genocide escaped from Darfur, million joined the Save Darfur movement to raise a collective voice to demand that our government help the people of Darfur.
Our actions make a difference. For the first time in our nation's history, our government declared a genocide while it was underway. For the first time in world history, a sitting president, Omar al-Bashir, was charged with committing genocide and crimes against humanity. Thousands of UN troops were deployed to save the lives of people under attack.
Together we are acting to stop the violence. Join us.
Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is wanted on charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity for his crimes in Darfur. And he is continuing his crimes with impunity.
We need action now. Courageous lawmakers are standing with the people of Sudan, demanding action to protect those at risk, create a sustainable peace and hold Bashir accountable for his actions. But they need our help.
Ask your lawmakers to co-sponsor the Sudan Peace, Security and Accountability Act. The Act is the best hope for action by the United States for the people of Sudan.
