According to ENOUGHPROJECT.ORG “months of military attacks by the Government of Sudan on their own people have prevented crop production, causing near-famine conditions. The attacks themselves continue to kill, injure, displace and terrorize innocent civilians while the international community continues to stand by.”
On March 7, Rep. Jim McGovern introduced the Sudan Peace, Security, and Accountability Act of 2012. It’s a strong piece of legislation that needs your support to get passed.
“We’re calling on the United States and world leaders to stop the violence and prevent hundreds of thousands of people from starving.”
