The Sudanese government has continued to block humanitarian access and bomb civilians. On Friday activists protested against Bashir’s American lawyer.
If you haven’t heard, Omar al-Bashir, the Sudanese dictator wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity, war crimes, genocide, now has legal representation here in Washington, DC. Bashir’s new lawyer, Bart Fisher, has decided that it is okay to support a genocidal regime that continues to kill its own people throughout Sudan for $20,000 per month.
The Obama Administration offered a package of incentives to encourage good behavior towards innocent civilians in Sudan. However, the Sudanese government has continued to block humanitarian access, bomb civilian areas in South Kordofan, Darfur, Blue Nile, and South Sudan even targeting displaced persons living at the refugee camps. Al-Bashir continues to show the world that he is willing to wage violence towards the Sudanese people, therefore he needs to be stopped. The United States government should be urged to take robust action against the Government of Sudan and NOT be lobbied by Mr. Bart Fisher for rewards which are unmerited.
At the protest on Friday, activists were joined by US Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) who has spoken out against Sudan hiring a Washington lobbyist and stated on Tuesday, December 13 on the House floor his outrage in learning that the “genocidal government of Khartoum hired a lobbyist to represent its interests in Washington”.
Join the Sudanese people and demand for Justice by urging your member of Congress to push for robust action against Sudan.
