Day for Darfur

Posted in Uncategorized by Adam Westbrook on September 17, 2006

Today is the global day for Darfur – a series of demonstrations are taking place in the U.S. and here in London. The bloggers are rallying too in their own cybernetic ways.
The U.N. are meeting this weekend and Sudan is top of the agenda, and insiders say the pressure is really going to be put on the Sudanese government perhaps leading to a confrontation between Bashir and the U.N.

It’s an embarrassment to human reason that so far we’ve all stood by and let genocide happen again; history will not judge us kindly unless we do something – now.

What you can do today:

Go :: to one of the many rallies being held across the UK. Here in the UK, demonstators are currently gathered outside the Sudanese Embassy.
Read :: about the attrocities on the Hell on Earth blog

Listen :: to the story of a survivor of the rwandan genocide

Look :: at these photographs – this is happening to people – in the 21st century. (you may find the images upsetting. Tough)

Write :: if you’ve got a blog, make some noise!

Add :: a “bloggers for Darfur” button to your website.
