State-sponsored violence has terrorized the people of Sudan for decades.  Millions have died and millions more have been displaced from their homes.

Genocide continues in Darfur.  Daily bombings occur in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile, and the UN reports hundreds of thousands have fled to South Sudan and Ethiopia.  Those in Khartoum and elsewhere who seek change are often arrested, tortured and killed.  In addition, the government is blocking humanitarian aid from reaching civilians in dire need in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile and impeding access in Darfur and Eastern Sudan. 

Throughout the country, Sudan's citizens are under attack and are struggling for change that will yield a just peace for all.  The international community has promised to protect populations from horrific crimes and from states who harm their citizens.

Office of the Permanent Observer of the African Union to the United Nations Ambassador Téte António
US Special Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan Ambassador Princeton Lyman
Please provide civilian protection in Sudan.

I stand in solidarity with the people of Sudan, and I urge the United Nations Security Council, the African Union and the United States to take the necessary steps to protect the citizens of Sudan from violent crimes committed by the government of Sudan and to support Sudanese in their struggle for a just peace.
