With the South Sudan Referendum quickly approaching, Sudanese President Al-bashir’s government has significantly escalated it's attacks against the people of Darfur. Reports indicate that MG-21 aircraft and helicopters are being used around the Jebel Marra, West Darfur and South Darfur areas, displacing hundred of thousands of civilians, killing dozens of innocents, mostly women and children. Why?

Al-bashir and his NCP Regime are “clearing out” Darfur before the referendum, to be held January 9, 2011. His government has mobilized the Sudanese Army Forces (SAF) and Janjaweed to the Abyei and border with South Sudan, thereby threatening the southern Sudanese people’s rights to a free or fair vote for secession.

The Al-bashir government continues to harass, intimidate, arrest, torture, jail and kill

innocent Darfuris in Khartoum, Darfur and refugee sites in the Chad.

The Chadian government explicitly cooperates with the Sudanese government, based on the recent agreement signed by both governments that negatively affects Darfuri refugees.

Chadand Sudan have formed ‘border security forces’ that target Darfuri refugees (special attention is given to the elite class and teachers living in the Chad refugee camps and cities(.

Many Sudanese and Chadian opposition leaders also have disappeared without efforts by their respective governments to bring suspects to fair trial.

We are gathering to call attention to the demands for:

Chad and Sudan to stop targeting Darfuri innocents under the pretense of “border security and to immediately release all those arrested without any delays.

The Chadian government to respect the human rights of Darfuris seeking refuge, to stop deporting refugees to Sudan, and to release all those arrested immediately.

Support the International Criminal Court in it's efforts to arrest the indicted war criminals of Sudan (Omar Al-bashir, Ahmed Haroun, Ali Kushaib, Musa Hilal) and the dozens of suspects who have committed heinous crimes against humanity in Darfur.

The United Nations, USA, European Union, Canada, Austria, African Union, Arab Leagues and the entire International Community to get serious about justice in Darfur; to be transparent and neutral about properly stopping the injustice in Darfur properly and hold the perpetrators accountable…immediately;

PEACE will never come to all of Sudan without JUSTICE in Darfur first!
