Call on Investors to Stand up for Human Rights in Darfur

Call on the most powerful companies in the world to use their influence to help end the human rights catastrophe in Darfur.
Despite international diplomatic pressure, the Government of Sudan continues to impede the deployment of UN-African Union peacekeepers in Darfur, leaving countless civilians vulnerable to armed attack, rape, and displacement.
To ensure the speedy and full deployment of this peacekeeping force, the Government of Sudan must receive pressure from key economic interests, including the oil companies they depend on for 90% of their export revenue.
To convince these oil companies to act, we must enlist their investors as our allies. In the past year several top U.S. investment firms have committed to raising concerns about Darfur with oil companies in which they are invested. But the large majority of investors are still ignoring the issue and hoping it will just go away. In the meantime, more lives are being lost.
Please call on these investment companies to take a stand for the people of Darfur today.
