Enough violations by Sudan. It's time for sanctions!
The Government of Sudan continues to undermine prospects for peace in Sudan.
Violations by the Government of Sudan continue, despite the “fresh” start from the US Special Envoy and the new US Sudan Policy announced on October 19, 2009. Sudan continues its dangerous tactics: Delay, Manipulate, Block, Ignore, Deny. We know of attacks on civilians, threats of forced returns of IDPs, the blockage of humanitarian aid and threats on aid workers. Three million Darfuris are displaced in camps, and time is running out to fulfill the terms of the CPA for South Sudan.
The warning signs are clear:
- "Millions could miss Sudan elections" - Reuters
- "Abyei: Bashir wants it all" - Roger Winter
- "Sudan at the flash point" - Eric Reeves
- "What to do about Sudan now" - John Prendergast
Tell your representatives in Congress and President Obama that the US must now start using the pressures that were promised as part of the new US Sudan Policy.
News of recent violations shows that the Government of Sudan is seriously undermining the prospects for peace in Sudan. We have waited long enough. It's time for the US to start using the pressures that were promised as part of the new Sudan Policy.
