In the past four years, 400,000 people in Darfur, Sudan have been killed by their own government. Millions more need our help. Government sponsored troops massacre civilians, rape girls, and shoot children for sport. But now, a growing number of activists around the world are demanding world leaders take action to end the killing.
Darfur is a region in western Sudan, an eastern African country half the size of the United States.
Ethnic African rebel groups in Darfur launched a war for independence, citing a lack of life saving government funds in the region. President Omar Al-Bashir responded with a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing against civilians. He has used proxy militia groups to torch whole cities, rape and kill thousands of women and children. The violence continues today.
A No-Fly Zone could stop the violence.
The United States ran a No-Fly Zone in Iraq after the first Gulf War. A NATO implemented No-Fly Zone ended the violence Kosovo. We can do the same in Darfur. But we need your help. President Bush is already considering a No-Fly Zone as part of his "Plan B" package.
Please take 20 seconds to sign our petition and urge the White House to take action.
We, the undersigned, call on NATO to implement a No-Fly Zone over Darfur to aid in the fight against the genocide that is currently being waged in this region.
