The Passion of the Present

September 12 at 2pm (Dag Hammarskjold Park, 47th Street, NYC)
Rally at the U.N. : Stop Racist Genocide and Slavery in Sudan

On January 19, 2004, Arab militia sponsored by the Sudanese government swept through the village of Goz El Naim in Darfur, Sudan. They abducted 4-year-old Alsadik Mansour as a slave, murdering his parents and burning their bodies. As you read this, Alsadik remains in bondage.

Black people across Sudan are under threat of annihilation. The mass murder of Blacks in Darfur is the first genocide of the 21st century: 50,000 have been slaughtered, 2 million forced into the desert as refugees, and thousands raped and enslaved. In the South, the Shiluk Kingdom faces extermination. Across Sudan, millions of Blacks forced from their homes - Muslims, Christians, and animists - now live in refugee camps.

This is genocide. One million may die by December at the hands of the radical Islamist regime in Khartoum, led by General Omar Bashir, who took power in a 1989 military coup. For too long, world leaders have stood by and failed to stop the atrocities in Sudan's killing fields. Prominent members of the UN Security Council have oil and military contracts in Sudan.

But now a coalition of people of conscience - from all walks of life - have come together to hold world leaders accountable. As New Yorkers commemorate the terror attacks of September 11, they will also stand in solidarity with victims of terror in Sudan (which hosted Osama bin Laden until 1996). We come together to demand UN intervention to stop genocidal militias, to insist that Sudanese leaders be tried for war crimes, and to stand in solidarity with the victims of genocide and slavery - like 4-year-old Alsadik Mansour.
