Darfur: A Genocide We Can Stop
US POLICY ADRIFT by Barack Obama and Sam Brownback
"Never again" - Call to Conscience Sparks partnership with Solar Cookers International and KoZon: Hoping to help the women & girls in the Darfur refugees camps -- who are often raped as they go hunting for firewood to heat the food donated by relief organizations -- returning to the camps beaten, bloody and shamed -- the Jewish World Watch has begun raising money to provide solar cookers for a 20,000-person camp. The cooker project is meant to see to it that women no longer have to forage for wood and make themselves vulnerable to attack. JWW is working in partnership with Solar Cookers International and KoZon ("cooking with the sun") and their Iridimi refugee camp project in Chad in collaboration with CARE International.[More on Solar Cookers] jewishworldwatch.org, solarcookers.org
Field Team Compiles Indicators of Genocide:
Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) has gathered compelling information indicating that a genocidal process is unfolding in Darfur, Sudan. The organization is calling for a UN-backed resolution supporting robust intervention to prevent and punish the crime of genocide and has released a report that includes specific recommendations. A PHR field team visited the Chad/Sudan border in May and compiled a list of indicators of genocide based on the testimony of victims and eyewitnesses in Chad and Darfur. These indicators show an organized intent on the part of the Government of Sudan and the government-backed Janjaweed militia to effect group annihilation of non-Arab civilians in Darfur. [LEARN MORE]

It is very time-consuming to keep a news section up-to-date. Rather than try to continue to do this, I am now working with David Morse to keep his Darfur information up-to-date. David is a journalist and author who has become an activist for Darfur. He has written articles, conducted interviews, reviewed books. Please join me in doing what you can to help David in his efforts.
David is back from his journey South Sudan in May-July 2007, where he and filmmaker Jen Marlowe accompanied three "Lost Boys" - Gabriel Bol Deng, Chris Koor Garang, and Garang Mayuol - to their villages to deliver humanitarian aid and find out if they had family alive. The journey was supported by the Nation Institute's Fund for Investigative Journaism and by the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting. [See slide show here]
