Humanitarian Aid in Sudan

    1. Petition by

      Elshafei Dafalla

      Woodbridge, MA

The Sudanese regime headed by Omar al-Bashir is responsible for many crimes against humanity, as evidenced by his indictment in the International Criminal Court. In addition to atrocities committed during the long civil war with the south, the ongoing conflict in the western region of Darfur has produced the death and displacement of hundreds of thousands of Sudanese people, and the destruction of many important ancient archaeological sites in the country. The repeated conflicts initiated by the government against its own people are born from and demonstrate the al-Bashir regime’s refusal to accept, acknowledge, and respect the diverse peoples, cultures, and religions of Sudan.
Currently, fighting has erupted in South Kordofan and, more recently, in the Blue Nile state. Again, thousands of people have been displaced and killed. In keeping with his decision to dispel all humanitarian and aid workers and media in Darfur in 2009, the al-Bashir regime has restricted the access of humanitarian groups and journalists to these conflict areas, particularly South Kordofan.

      This is another genocide that the US, UN will not take a stand on. I am so disappointed with the US. How long can we let this go on? Where is the media coverage? So sad to see the world watch and do nothing.

      Perhaps this type of pressure will prod the Obama Administration and the UN into acting to help the people in Sudan (Darfur, South Kordofan/Nuba Mountains, the Blue Nile) who are in dire need. What is need is not more idle talk but action to provide families and individuals with adequate food, medical supplies,water, et al.
