Emergency National Call-In Day to the White House on Sudan Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Free South Sudan Media Center is endorsing the Genocide Intervention/Save Darfur organized Emergency Call-In Day to President Obama on Wednesday, June 22, 2011.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, June 22, please dial 1-800-GENOCIDE, connect to the White House, and:
- Say your name.
- Say what state you are from.
- Ask the president to impose serious consequences on the Government of Sudan, freeze assets of its leaders and their businesses, expand war crimes investigations, and ask the President to consider protecting the Sudanese people from their own government as he did the Libyans.
- IRD suggests additionally saying that we do not expect our government to treat the murderers and their victims and defenders with moral equivalency!
The Nuba Mountains (South Kordofan State in central Sudan) have been under attack by Khartoum’s Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and affiliated Popular Defense Forces (PDF) militia since Sunday, June 5. Daily aerial bombardment has taken place, while on the ground the Khartoum forces are conducting a campaign of ethnic cleansing of the Nuba people, the indigenous black African people of the Nuba Mountains. People have been dragged from their homes or vehicles and slaughtered on the spot. Churches and schools have been looted and burned to the ground, and Christian clergy, as well as any supporters of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) have been targeted. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced. Save Darfur adds, “On Sunday, Sudanese president Al-Bashir threatened a repeat of Abyei and South Kordofan ‘lessons.’”
