While the Sudanese government and the Janjaweed are to blame for this unfolding catastrophe, pressure should be applied to
- The Chinese government who manage/control 80% of the oil resources in Sudan.
- The US government for declaring that a genocide is taking place, but failing to lobby hard for UN intervention. The Bush administration allegedly regards the Sudanese government as an important source of information about Al Qaeda, and is therefore reluctant to act aggressively. Please send a hand written note to your members of congress ASAP.
- The Arab and Islamic countries, for not vigorously condemning and isolating the Sundanese government. Al Jazeera should be all over this issue with the same intensity that it covers events in the Middle East.
