Physicians for Human Rights Darfur Investigation: The moment of truth is now. We must act to stop genocide in Darfur.
It has been one year since the Bush Administration declared genocide was underway in Sudan.

Accounts gathered by Human Rights Watch over the past fourteen months largely corroborate the research conducted by other organizations investigating sexual violence.9 The International Commission of Inquiry concluded that rape and sexual violence have been used by government forces and government-backed Janjaweed militias as a "deliberate strategy with the aim of terrorizing the population, ensuring control of the movement of the IDP population and perpetuating its displacement."
