Ett förtvivlat budskap från Sudan - om the world´s worst massmurderer
8 juli 2011 18:13
al-Bashir is the world's worst mass murderer. Indicted by the
International Criminal Court for genocide, he has for 20 years repeatedly
butchered whole communities that challenged his rule. And it's happening
again -- unless we stop him for good.
Sudan's President al-Bashir, indicted for years of
genocide and mass murder, has unleashed yet another brutal attack on his own
people, raining bombs on villages and going door to door to murder families.
Enough is enough - let's demand that our leaders arrest Bashir, levy strong
sanctions on his regime, and protect the long-suffering people of Sudan:
Right now he's bombing women
and children in the Nuba mountains, while his militias go door to door
slitting the throats of whole families. For decades, world leaders have
shamefully allowed al-Bashir's unspeakable brutality so they could maintain
access to his regime's large oil reserves. But this week things are changing --
Sudan is splitting apart, inflation and food prices are sky-rocketing, and
Bashir's grip on power is at its weakest ever.
Let's send a massive
message to our leaders that enough is enough and demand they end their shocking
inaction now: by arresting this monster, levying powerful sanctions on his
cabal, and committing to protect the people of Sudan from genocide. Click below
to sign and tell everyone -- we'll deliver the petition to UN Security Council
members when we reach 300,000 signatures:
The Nuba mountains are under siege. Al-Bashir killed an entire
generation of men, women and children there in the 1990s, and now he's back to
brutalize the survivors. But in just days, long-suffering South Sudan will
finally become independent, taking with it much of the oil that al-Bashir uses
to buy international complicity with his crimes. Bashir is also facing
pro-democracy protests, a worsening economy, and tense relations with long-time
patron, China. This is our best chance in decades to organize the
international action we need to end al-Bashir's brutal rule.
international sanctions, a concerted global plan to arrest al-Bashir and others
indicted by the International Criminal Court, and a commitment to protect the
Sudanese people from further crimes against humanity would send al-Bashir a
signal that the game is up, weaken his position in his own regime, and show the
Sudanese people that he no longer has impunity for his crimes. The Sudanese - in
the South, in Darfur, in Nuba, and many other places - have waited far too long
for the world to stand up for humanity and justice, let's stand with them now:
It's almost impossible to imagine the desperation and terror of
women and children in Nuba right now, or Darfur before them. It's a great stain
on the conscience of the entire world, that we have not done what was
necessary to stop al-Bashir's reign of terror. Let's end that reign now,
with a massive outcry to governments to act.
