Who the issue affects: The people of Darfur are being hunted down and slaughtered by the Janjaweed, or “The devils on horseback”. They destroy the Darfuri people by burning villages, looting economic resources, polluting water sources, murdering, raping, and torturing civilians. Over 480,000 people are dead and 2.8 million are displaced.


Why it affects them: It affects them because they have nowhere to live. Their families are killed and the children are taken in by the RSF as child soldiers or sex slaves.


What actions have been taken: In the past, many solutions and attempts to stop the RSF have failed. The UN tried to pass solutions, but they were useless and never put in place. Peacekeepers were sent there to keep peace between the RSF and the people of Darfur, but both Russia and China disagreed since Darfur is a huge supplier for them.


Other African Countries: The SLM (Sudanese Liberation Movement) and the JEM (Justice and Equality Movement) are both fighting against the RSF to regain control and stop them from the burning of Darfur villages and killing of their people

 

Solution: We send troops in the U.S. to stop the genocide in Darfur. We would need about 26,000 troops there, which is the same amount that was supposed to be sent out to maintain peace in Darfur, but only 9,000 (peaking 16,000) were sent with lack of supplies. We will use these forces and have them stop the Janjaweed and capture the leader of the RSF, Omar al-Bashir.
