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.
