Stop Violence Against Women in Darfur - Protect the Women of Darfur

Please join us on March 8, International Women's day, in taking action to end human rights abuses against women in Darfur, Sudan. Amnesty International is alarmed by escalating violence in the Darfur region of western Sudan between the Sudanese army, government-backed militias and armed opposition groups.

Much of the violence perpetrated in the Darfur conflict has resulted in grave human rights violations against women. These violations against women and girls include abductions, rape and forced displacement. Take action today to stop violence against women in Darfur.


Learn more about the state of women's rights in Darfur during our online discussion with Rev. Gloria White-Hammond, M.D. from 1:00-2:00 PM EST on March 8th. Rev. Dr. White-Hammond currently serves as the National Chairperson of the Million Voices for Darfur campaign and has made multiple trips to war-torn southern Sudan since 2001. »

Protect the Women of Darfur

Thanks to the letters and emails of thousands of Amnesty International activists and the work of others, the U.S. House of Representatives recently approved an amendment for $50 million for African Union and other peacekeeping operations in Darfur -- in addition to the $514 million already designated for Sudan -- in its Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill. A Senate companion bill, which now includes the same level of funding for peacekeeping operations in Darfur, will come up for a full vote within days.

Please email your Senators today and urge them to vote for the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill, to ensure ongoing support for crucial peacekeeping operations in Darfur!

Darfur: a region plunged in conflict

The civil war and its consequences have led to the deaths of up to 300,000 people, while the United Nations estimates that more than 2.4 million have been forced from their homes.


African Genocide

Some are calling it the first genocide of the 21st century, the killings of mostly black African Muslims blamed on an Arab militia known as the Janjaweed. Some 200,000 are thought to have been killed and 2,000,000 brutalized or displaced.


U.N. Talks But Won't Act on Genocide, Say Activists

The 15-member U.N. Security Council, which has shown a reluctance to penalize those accused of war crimes in conflict-ridden Darfur in Sudan, unanimously adopted a resolution Friday to protect civilians in armed conflicts.


Horror continues in Sudan's Darfur

Help Darfur: Tell Congress to pass the budget bill!

In February, as millions in funding for peacekeeping, food aid, and other vital assistance for the people of Darfur were on the line, you responded. More than 14,000 Oxfam supporters asked your Representatives to support critical amendments to the supplemental budget bill.

While the House and Senate are working through differences unrelated to Darfur funding, the process is hampering efforts to get critically-needed assistance to the people of Darfur. Please help us again -- urge Congress to take quick action.

Click here to tell Congress to vote on the supplemental budget!

Two of the main parties to the conflict have signed a new peace agreement, and the African Union (AU) forces on the ground may be transitioned to a UN force.

However, this process may be slow. In the interim, the AU forces will need additional logistical and material resources to be able to protect the citizens of Darfur and help implement the peace agreement.

If the budget bill is not passed soon, resources to provide the people of Darfur with adequate food rations may not arrive in time, escalating the potential for severe food shortages and deteriorating health conditions throughout the region.

This is why passing the budget bill is so important in helping millions of people throughout Darfur.

President Bush has said, "The world cannot ignore the suffering of more than one million people." Tell Congress to rise to the President’s challenge by clicking here.

Millions of Sudanese have already suffered while waiting for the international community to respond, and there is no time to lose.

As Darfur War Rages On, Disease and Hunger Kill

The brutal war in Darfur has set off what the United Nations has called the "world's worst humanitarian crisis" - a crucible of death that seems to grow grimmer despite a new peace agreement. But bullets are not killing most people here now - pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria are. And the clinics set up to treat the 35,000 people displaced by the conflict are out of money.



A Dying Deal in Darfur

"Most Darfurians cannot return home because the government still supports the Janjaweed militias, who continue to rape and pillage across Darfur and eastern Chad.... The specific security guarantee every Darfurian talks about is a United Nations force that will ensure the Janjaweed disarm, and that will protect refugees and help them return home," writes John Prendergast.
