Crisis in Sudan Darfur Genocide

Darfur/Sudan – genocide on a massive scale

From the Save Darfur Coalition:

“The emergency in Sudan’s western region of Darfur presents the starkest challenge to the world since the Rwanda genocide in 1994. A government-backed Arab militia known as ‘Janjaweed’ has been engaging in campaigns to displace and wipe out communities of African tribal farmers.

“Villages have been razed, women and girls are systematically raped and branded, men and boys murdered, and food and water supplies targeted and destroyed. Government aerial bombardments support the ‘Janjaweed’ by hurling explosives as well as barrels of nails, car chassis and old appliances from planes to crush people and property. Tens of thousands have died. Well over a million people have been driven from their homes, and only in the past few weeks have humanitarian agencies gained limited access to some of the affected region.

“Mukesh Kapila, the former United Nations humanitarian coordinator for Sudan, said on March 19, 2004 that the violence in Darfur is ‘more than a conflict, it's an organized attempt to do away with one set of people.’ The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum has issued its first ever genocide emergency. John Prendergast of International Crisis Group warns,  - We have not yet hit the apex of the crisis.”

“The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) estimates that 350,000 people or more could die in the coming months. Ongoing assessments by independent organizations such as Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders) suggest that USAID’s estimate may be conservative. If aid is denied or unavailable, as many as a million people could perish.

“Lives are hanging in the balance on a massive scale.” 


The editors of Accountability-Central believe that the events in Darfur need to be kept in focus --- there must be an end to this tragedy that is occurring each and every day.  There must be a return to accountability on the part of Sudan’s Government. This section will focus on  news and commentary and background research including lists of those organizations that are working to provide direct aid to the people of Darfur; those lobbing the UN for action; and  others that are applying economic and shareholder pressure to those companies and corporations that are doing business in Sudan or supporting the government that is allegedly behind these terrible atrocities.  There is a strong measure of “corporate and institutional accountability” in these tragic events.
