July 12th marks the anniversary of al-Bashir’s indictment for the crimes of genocide. July 17th marks International Day of Justice. During this time we need to mobilize around the globe. We must demand effective action from the international community to bring al-Bashir and other officials wanted for crimes committed in Darfur to justice.
We must Stand With Darfur
We must always support the Sudanese who are still fighting for freedom and justice. We demand that our elected officials and international diplomats take immediate and effective action to end criminal impunity and promote civilian protection. In the face of genocide, our leaders must not look the other way.
Moving forward, we will continue to educate you and share with you stories from the people of Darfur. We will continue our outreach to policymakers and demand action. We will urge them to support meaningful foreign policy solutions by the US and the international community. We aim for the United States to continue to pursue targeted sanctions on the state sponsors of terror list. We will be pressuring the UN Security Council to deploy a strong peacekeeping mission with the appropriate powers to protect civilians from violence and instability. We will implore the Sudanese government to immediately extradite wanted officials, including al-Bashir, himself to the International Criminal Court to face trials. Together we will organize publicly to advocate for Sudanese.
