Thank you for all your support!
China has its largest oil holdings in the Sudan region. China is also the Sudan's largest supplier of arms. The Sudanese government has implemented genocide in the Darfur & Chad regions, affecting millions of people. Already the body count is over 500,000, with women, men & children being brutally tortured and killed.
The U.N. has been unsuccessful in getting peacekeepers into the Darfur region as the Sudanese government has been blocking such access.
The 2008 Olympics will be hosted by China. One way we can help end this crisis in Darfur & Chad is to let China--and the world--know that enough is enough. McDonalds, Johnson & Johnson, GE, & Coca Cola are all major corporate sponsors of the 2008 Olympics. Steven Spielberg will be the public figure opening and closing these Olympics.
They need to step up to the plate, pull out of the Olympics until China stops supplying arms and starts to put pressure on the Sudanese government to end the genocide in Darfur.
We, the undersigned, call on McDonalds, Johnson & Johnson, GE, Coca Cola and Steven Spielberg to cease supporting the human rights violator China by sponsoring or participating in the 2008 Olympics until China stops supplying arms to the Sudanese government & begins to put pressure on the Sudanese government to allow the United Nations into the Darfur region.
