A global coalition of 98 politicians from the US, UK and Australia have signed an open letter urging the UN Security Council to take action on Sudan.

Today, U.S. Members of Congress joined Parliamentarians in the United Kingdom and Australia (all currently on the UN Security Council) in a letter sent to each country’s Secretary of State/Foreign Minister to commemorate the 10 year mark since the beginning of the conflict in Darfur and demand renewed attention and action to stop continuing atrocities throughout Sudan. See the full letter below and press release.

Among the asks included in the letter were to:

  • Demand an end to aerial bombardment and other attacks against civilians in Sudan, which have continued in Darfur and increased in intensity over the past year, particularly in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile;
  • Urgently address the humanitarian situation in Southern Kordofan, Blue Nile and Darfur;
  • Ensure a comprehensive approach to ending Sudan’s conflicts, focusing on the long-standing need for peaceful and inclusive democratic transformation;
  • Take a leadership role in ensuring that those responsible for grave violations of international human rights and humanitarian law are held accountable;
  • Encourage countries with close political and/or economic ties with Khartoum to join in pushing for the aforementioned actions.

Add your voice to the Parliamentarians and thousands of others by signing the Global Darfur10 Petition. Ten years later, civilians are still dying. It is time for action.
