Tell Sen. Kerry to End Genocide in Darfur
Please call Senator Kerry today at (202) 224-2742 with the following message: "Thank you for heading the first Congressional delegation to Darfur since 2007 and your commitment to ending the genocide. I live in [Name of State] but write to you in your capacity as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. I am extremely concerned by the Obama Administration's statement that it is giving the Government of Sudan 30 days to restore humanitarian aid to Darfur in exchange for talks on normalizing relations with the U.S. It is more than one month since aid workers were expelled. Conditions are already dire. This 30 day period only gives President al-Bashir time to further his goals of exterminating Darfuris. Please do not allow the U.S. government to use the lives of Darfuris to bargain over politics." If you cannot call, please go to http://kerry.senate.gov/contact/email.cfm to send an email. Fill in the form, select "Foreign Relations" in the Topic pulldown menu. Insert " Your Trip to Darfur" as the subject. Copy and paste the message above in the box, insert the state of your residence to replace the bracketed text, and submit. Thank you, and please tell a friend!
