From STAND:

Sixteen humanitarian agencies have been kicked out of Darfur by the Government of Sudan. This action by Sudan will leave about 1 million Darfuris without food, water, or medical aid.

Call your Representative on Genocide Intervention Network's hotline, 1-800-GENOCIDE (1-800-436-6243) and urge them to sign onto Congressman Capuano's letter to President Hu of China, Arab League Secretary-General Amre Moussa and African Union Chairman Muammar Qadhafi. These are Sudanese allies that must be urged to tell Sudan that its action against these humanitarian aid organizations is unacceptable.

Visit 1800Genocide.org to read more about the situation, and call your Representative today.

      Many many people will die in Sudan's refugee and internally displaced peoples camps without the help of international aid agencies.  We cannot and should not let people die of starvation, sicknesses from poor sanitation, and lack of vaccinations.  What happens in your neighbor's yard will effect your home.

      No matter how bad the economy is or how overstretched we are militarily, we can not let genocide occur anywhere. And no right minded person or government can deny support to this cause if it is for a purpose as noble as stopping the killing of civilians. 
      The expelling of aid organizations from the country should have been the last straw to crack down on the Sudanese government. How long are will we wait before we act?!! Stop Genocide Now!
