Forces from across the world are poised to help the people of Darfur, but no nation has the will to move forward.
We are in a tragic and signal moment, a catalytic moment, where the world sees the need, has the means, and yet continues to experience a failure of will. Giving the Sudanese government 30 more days--and then asking Kofi Annan for a report to the UN Security Council--assures 30 more days of death and destruction. Given the nature of the genocidal process being carried out in Sudan--engineered, intentional famine and epidemic disease--30 more days translates into months of additonal famine, and hundreds of thousands of additional lives lost.
Now it is the public's turn. It is our turn. The time is now for our action. We must ask our leaders to act now, not in 30 days.
Anybody have any information about what Canada is doing about this, if anything?
