In response to the government of Sudan’s expulsion of humanitarian aid agencies from Darfur, leaving an estimated one million Darfuris without water, food, and medical assistance, Congressmen Capuano and McCaul have written letters to three key Sudanese allies: Chinese President Hu Jintao, Arab League Secretary General Amre Moussa and African Union Chairman Muammar Gaddafi. These letters urge these three leaders to send a clear message that putting Darfuri lives at greater risk by denying access to life-saving humanitarian assistance is unacceptable.
Here’s where you come in: The more signatures the letter has, the more weight it carries. Between now and noon on Tuesday, call 1-800-GENOCIDE and urge your representative to sign Congressmen Capuano and McCaul’s letters to these key international leaders demanding action to get humanitarian aid back into Darfur. When you call and enter your zip code the hotline will connect you with your Representative and give you specific instructions on what to say.
