Genocide in Sudan by Mill1337 Genocide in Sudan by Mill1337
In the Darfur region of western Sudan, a genocide is occurring. Each day, civilians face prospects of mass killings, torture, rape, destruction of villages, theft and other human rights abuses at the hands of the Janjaweed militias - bands of fighters backed by the Sudanese Government.
Since the start of the conflict in Darfur in February 2003:

- Nearly 3 million people have been affected by the crisis.
- More than 400,000 people have died from conflict and diseases.
- 2.5 million civilians have been internally displaced by the conflict.
- 200,000 Darfurians have sought refuge in neighboring Chad.


"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
-Martin Luther King Jr.

In the last few weeks at school, we've been studying Africa and reading articles about these horrible things that have gone on. It's crazy to think about. While you sit and type, possibly eating or whatever, people are being murdered, raped, starved and tortured. Sure, those kinds of things happen in America, but it's so much worse there.

I wish I could do something.
It makes me feel..small.

I've found the greatest thing you can possibly do from over here is simply to inform

I agree, though I also find it as horrible, if not more, that people can just sit around and let such things happen.
