Save South Sudan

This petition had 150 supporters

     On behalf of the Concerned Citizens of South Sudan (CCSS), which is a nonprofit organization based in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The United States of America should intervene in the ongoing crisis in The Republic of South Sudan (RSS).  The United States of America gave unwavering support to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2005 (CPA/2005) between the Sudan People Liberation Army/Movement (SPLA/M) and the government of Sudan. The CPA/2005 created six years of peace and tolerance in Sudan. With self-determination, the South Sudanese voted to secede from Sudan and on July 9, 2011, South Sudan became an independent nation, with the support of United States of America.  

     In December of 2013, South Sudan slide into a civil war as a result of power struggle between factions of the ruling SPLM Party.  President Kiir and his group used brutal force and committed grave atrocities against the citizens of other ethnic groups to maintain power.  Rebel factions rose causing strife and violence in the country harming innocent citizens throughout South Sudan as well .  As a result hundreds of thousands have died by war and starvation, and thousands became refugees in neighboring countries.  Furthermore, there is a potential of genocide by the government and the rebels, toward the innocent people of South Sudan. We want to prevent the atrocities like that which toke place in Rwanda from happening in South Sudan, which is likely without intervention.  

     We, the Concerned Citizens of South Sudan, appeal to you, as a leading humanitarian nation, with human rights as a primary value, to intervene to stabilize and pacify South Sudan and bring the warring parties to a table of negation to insure a transition to peace and to a sustainable democracy, by protecting civilians and saving lives immediately.
