In the myriad debates speculating the implications of this week’s indictment of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, one voice has been drowned out. The voice of Darfuri people who have suffered under this genocidal campaign.
In an effort to ensure that their voices were heard, the Darfuri Leaders Network, a broad-based alliance representing Darfur diaspora organizations across the United States, responded yesterday with a letter that was delivered to U.N. Security Council member states.
Our people have cried out for justice for the last five years only to see the humanitarian and political crisis worsen in Darfur. Mr. Moreno-Ocampo’s request to examine the culpability of President Al Bashir for the genocide committed against our friends and families brings us some hope that the international community may finally match its rhetoric with actions that lead to real results in The Sudan. It is for this reason that we give our unequivocal support to Mr. Moreno-Ocampo’s decision which aims to provide much delayed accountability for those responsible for the destruction of the lives and livelihoods of Darfuris.
