Genocide in Darfur, Sudan
Transcript of Genocide in Darfur, Sudan
We live in the United States, land of the free.
We live in Bethel, CT.
Here, we don't have many problems except for the groaning of excessive homework and the CMTs.
Meanwhile, halfway across the world in Sudan, there is a problem...
-The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.
The most cruel genocide of all time was the
Hitler killed more than
6 million Jews
because of racist ideals.

So, a country where genocide has been happening is...
Darfur is home to 6 million Africans from nearly 100 ethnic tribes. Most of them are Muslims, some farmers, and some nomads.
In 1989, General Omar al Bashir took over Sudan with a military coup. He allowed the National Islamic Front to assume government control. This government led to worse and worse living conditions.
Finally, in 2003, Darfurians decided to rebel. After many complaints of the marginalization of the area and the Sudanese government's failure to protect the sedentary people from attack by nomads, the Sudanese Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement were formed as rebel movements.
The Sudanese government responded by releasing Janjaweed Arab Africans and Bedouins (nomads) in Darfur. They are known as "devils on horsebacks" due to their fierce nature and riding on horses, camels, or any type of transportation.
They pillaged and destroyed over 400 Darfurian villages. They displaced over 2,500,000 people. The Sudanese government denies any association with the Janjaweed militia forces yet they are unwilling to address any human rights violations.
100 people died every day and 5 thousand had died every month.
4.7 million Darfurians need humanitarian aid.
The International Criminal Court started to end this impunity by investigating this matter but the Sudanese government refused to cooperate.
In March 9, 2009, President Omar al-Bashir was indicted as the first sitting president on a campaign of mass murder, rape, and pillaging of Darfur. There is also a warrant for Ahmad Harun, Minister of State for Interior, and Ali Kushyab, the Janjaweed militia leader.
Those who are displaced move to Egypt, seeking help from the United Nations or anyone that can help them.
Or else, refugees migrate to South Sudan, especially if they have a South-Sudanese origins.
1. You must understand the problem to be able to solve it. Therefore, you must understand genocide. The Security Council should work more efficiently. To do this, the five permanent members should give up their veto power, which had allowed 800,000 people in Rwanda to be massacred before any action was taken.
2. We must be prepared and early warned to be able to prevent massacres.
3. We must build institutions to allow people to further engage in learning to intervene non-violently.
4. There must be a permanent, willing force to volunteer a rapid response. In Articles 43 through 48 in the U.N Charter, it already provides a permanent command basis though it has never been created.
5. The International Criminal Court must stand up and voice the discontent about situations like genocide so nations worldwide can quickly provide backup.
These are the 5 most important steps that need to be taken to ensure that genocide will only be a memory of the historic past.

We make a plea to anyone who can help Darfur, Sudan and anywhere else where genocide is happening.
29 human rights and probably more was violated during this tragedy of a 20-year civil war and genocide that happened in Sudan.
Sudan was the most violated so aid and resources should be sent here first.
