KEY FACTS ABOUT THE GENOCIDE IN DARFUR, SUDAN: In response to conflict with Darfurian rebel groups in February 2003, the Sudanese government, working with Arab militias called 'Janjaweed', began sponsoring wholesale ethnic cleansing of non-Arab Darfurians, almost all of whom had NO direct affiliation with the rebel groups. Since February of 2003, over 400,000 Darfurian civilians have perished. 2.5 million have been displaced due to violence, nearly 4 million are now reliant on humanitarian aid, and 90% of Darfur's villages have been looted or destroyed. On July 23, 2004, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives unanimously adopted a joint resolution declaring the atrocities in Darfur to be genocide. On September 9, 2004, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell, said, "...we concluded, I concluded, that genocide has been committed in Darfur." President Bush has repeatedly referred to the situation in Darfur as genocide. Reports by the UN, human rights groups, and US State Department officials affirm that atrocities continue to be committed, more than three years after the genocide began.

 


DARFUR ACCOUNTABILITY AND DIVESTMENT ACT ESTABLISHES FEDERAL LIST OF CULPABLE COMPANIES DOING BUSINESS WITH KHARTOUM: Prohibits Federal Contracts and Authorizes States to Divest From Offending Companies WASHINGTON, July 31, 2007. The House of Representatives today passed H.R. 180, the Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act of 2007, by an overwhelming majority of 418 to 1. Sponsored by Rep. Barbara Lee and co-sponsored by 130 members of the House of Representatives, this bill will authorize and protect states that divest from the culpable companies that support the genocidal government of Sudan and refuse to change their behavior. Since 2003, as many as 400,000 people have been killed and more than 2.5 million displaced. The violence has spread into Chad and the Central African Republic resulting in hundreds of thousands of refugees. Three years ago, the United States Congress made an unprecedented announcement acknowledging the atrocities in Darfur as genocide, says Genocide Intervention Network Executive Director Mark Hanis. Today, the House of Representatives took powerful action to see that this genocide comes to an end. It's now up to the Senate and President Bush to follow the House's lead. Despite existing bans prohibiting U.S. companies from conducting business operations in Sudan, institutions and even individuals throughout the United States are indirectly fueling the genocide by investing in foreign companies complicit in the bloodshed. The Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act will establish a federal list of the culpable foreign companies to better inform Americans regarding their investments. Furthermore, the bill forbids the U.S. federal government from entering into or renewing contracts with companies included on that list and authorizes state and local governments to do the same. H.R. 180 also protects these state and local governments and asset managers who divest. Since the government of Sudan relies heavily on foreign investment to fund its military, divestment is an effective strategic move against the crisis. The Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act will maximize the impact of divestment on the Sudanese government while minimizing potential harm to both innocent Sudanese civilians and investment returns. Divestment Statistics from www.SudanDivestment.org A Project of the Genocide Intervention Network 19 states have adopted divestment policies from Sudan. Twelve of these states have passed the Sudan Divestment Task Force model of targeted Sudan divestment: California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, New York, Rhode Island, Texas, and Vermont. Seven of these states have developed state specific methods of Sudan divestment: Arkansas, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, and Oregon. 18 other states have initiated Sudan divestment campaigns. Seven of these states have targeted Sudan divestment legislation currently introduced: Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. Eleven of these states have campaigns awaiting introduction of legislation or are pursuing Sudan divestment by other means: Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. 54 universities have adopted divestment policies from Sudan. Beginning with the first university, Harvard, to the most recent including the University of Minnesota, the University of Illinois and Connecticut College in a display of grassroots power, students, faculty and administrators have united to ensure that their schools make conscionable, genocide-free investments. 47 other universities have initiated campaigns to pursue Sudan divestment policies. 9 cities have adopted divestment policies from Sudan: Denver; Los Angeles; Miami Beach, Fla., New Haven, Conn.; Newton, Mass; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Providence, R.I.; and San Francisco. 8 countries have initiated targeted Sudan divestment campaigns. International divestment campaigns currently include Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy, South Africa, Germany, the United States, and the United Kingdom. 5 companies: Rolls Royce, Siemens, ABB, CHC Helicopter and Schlumberger, have ceased operations in Sudan or formalized and publicized a plan to do so, or have significantly changed their behavior in the country since the Sudan divestment movement began. The Genocide Intervention Network is working to build the first permanent anti-genocide constituency in the United States, mobilizing the political will to stop genocide when it occurs. Accessible online at www.GenocideIntervention.net, GI-Net empowers individuals with tools to stop genocide through education, fundraising for civilian protection and advocacy efforts. ### Contact: Lauren C.

As you all well know, African culture is the most BEAUTIFUL in the world! And while MANY of us PROMOTE all of these wonderful things about Africa's history and contributions to the world, everything is NOT all good with Her. The African Continent is suffering A LOT of instability. Everything from starvation, tribalism, disease, lack of clean water for bathing/drinking, and government corruption, all the way to political assassinations, lack of accessible health care, and even genocide. With those kind of problems, it almost seems like a lost cause. But you know what? I for one will NEVER give up on Africa or the people's ability to unite and make Africa the most stable and economically strong continent in the world, AS she once was! But, it's going to take A LOT of work, time, effort, patience, consistency, zeal, heart and passion on the part of ALL of us, which is why I, with the help of our weekly internet radio show Our Perspective (www.blogtalkradio.com/OurPers pective) are promoting SAVE AFRICA, Inc. Save AFRICA, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to to advocacy and capacity-building in the sub-Saharan region. Our fundamental objective is to produce self-sufficient families and sustainable communities with better health services, eco-friendly agriculture and advance technology integration. We need YOUR help, ideas, experience, membership and ESPECIALLY your donations, to make this happen for our family across the water. You can donate as little as five dollars. And if you tell your friends, family and co-workers, we can achieve our goals THAT much faster! For more information visit/donate to us at: www.myspace.com/saveafricainc or www.myspace.com/endtheconflict s May the peace and blessings of our Ancestors be upon you ALWAYS! Sincerely, Bro. Hank!!

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE

Posted

General recommendations In our July 2007 report, Crisis Group focused on the lessons for building a comprehensive peace throughout Sudan. The international community must continue to press for the establishment of a functioning ceasefire and the deployment of the AUUN hybrid force, but of equal importance is the revitalisation of the moribund peace process. Necessary new peace talks would be best served by freezing further efforts to apply the DPA's political and wealthsharing provisions. The... (continue reading)
