Global Days for Darfur

From: David Rubenstein
Save Darfur Coalition


Activists across the world have come together to plan "Global Days for Darfur" - a week of rallies, marches, vigils and other events designed to make it clear that "time has run out" for the people of Darfur.

Will you please join us and thousands of committed Darfur activists the week of April 23rd - 30th?

Click here to find an event taking place near you.

At the web page, locate the "Find an Event" section on the right-hand side of the page, enter your zip code and the distance you'd like to search within, then click "Find Events."

As you know all too well, time has run out for the people of Darfur.

We must call attention to the escalating violence and the continued failure of the international community to adequately respond to this crisis.

The Global Days for Darfur week of action offers a perfect forum to help raise awareness of the crisis and to call for the immediate deployment of an international peacekeeping force to Darfur.

Please support your fellow activists in speaking out for the people of Darfur by joining an event in your area. Or, if there are currently no activities planned in your community, we hope you will consider creating your own event during this important week.

Once again, I am grateful for the incredible commitment you and others have shown to stopping the violence in Darfur.

Here are two more things everyone can do.

Visit The Darfur Wall - http://darfurwall.org/a/dan - and donate one dollar to light a number on the wall. Join thousands of others in opposing the genocide.

Visit the Fidelity Out of Sudan website - http://fidelityoutofsudan.net/ This divestment project is gaining speed. If we can make Fidelity divest if will make a real difference. You don’t need to be a fidelity investor to participate.

Thanks,
Dan Burke, Director
The Darfur Wall
