Transcript of Darfur
Classification Stage 3:
Dehumanization About the Darfur Genocide... Stage 2:
Symbolization The Darfur Conflict was a guerrilla conflict or civil war
centered on the Darfur region of Sudan. It began in February 2003 when the Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLM/A) and Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) groups in Darfur took up arms, accusing the Sudanese government oppressing non-Arab Sudanese in favor of Sudanese Arabs. It is also known as the Darfur Genocide. This stage is the distinguish categories
based on ethnicity, race,
religion, or nationality. In Darfur
it was the black africans vs. arab africans. Stage 4:
Organization VS Symbolization is the names or other symbols given to the classifications. The skin color was the most prominent symbol in Darfur. This step requires one group to “deny the humanity of the other” and associate
them with animals, insects and diseases.
In Darfur slaves. There is always some organization to genocides with some plan for the killings. In the case of Darfur the Janjaweed was armed and given tanks, they knew what village was next and had a systematic route of villages to attack. In this step the two groups are driven further apart by polarizing propaganda and laws prohibiting social interaction between the groups. The president of Sudan said he would protect the black africans but
obviously did not. Also they
made it very dangerous for
humanitarian assistance to
help out and offer food,
leaving the black africans
completely at their mercy
and killing them indirectly
with starvation and disease. This stage is when victims are identified and segregated. Often they are relocated to ghettos, camps, or famine-struck regions where they are destined to starve. Both of these are present in Darfur, survivors of the village raids make it to refugee camps and some areas are so isolated and connections for assistance have been cut off. Called extermination because the killers do not view their victims as even human, this stage is the actual mass killings. In Darfur the villages were burned and looted and the people terrorized and killed. Stage 5:
Polarization Stage 6:
Preparation Stage 7:
Extermination Stage 8:
Denial What Can We Do To Stop It? First Step Second Step Stage 4:
Organization Denial always follows genocide as the final stage. They blame it on the victims, hide all evidence, report false information, intimidate witnesses, and deny investigation. The Sudanese government rejects evidence that genocide is happening and has reported false statistics of the number of people killed.The Sudanese foreign minister Dr Mustafa Osman Ismail, went further, he said: "Our position is clear, that what has been going on is not a genocide, this is an American attempt to use a humanitarian situation for a political agenda." First, we must put aside domestic politics. The growing genocide in Darfur is not a partisan issue but one that reaches across a broad range of constituencies, including religious, human rights, humanitarian, medical, and legal communities, among others, all of which are advocating an aggressive international response to the crisis. Many organizations with a conservative bent, particularly within the religious community, have been at the forefront of advocacy for the people of Sudan; others have been hesitant to link up with them. These groups must put aside their differences and join forces to increase pressure to move Sudan to the top of the international agenda. They can do this by stimulating more media coverage, organizing grassroots contacts with members of Congress, seeking support for urgent action from both presidential candidates, and connecting with counterparts in other countries. Second, a new push for international action can be mounted on the recent visits to Sudan by Secretary of State Colin Powell and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. Powell now "owns" the issue in the Bush administration, and he should be urged to exercise strong leadership on Darfur both in the administration and in the UN Security Council.
The council must immediately adopt a resolution authorizing much stronger sanctions against the Sudanese leaders if they fail to carry out their commitment to Powell to disarm the militias. THANK YOU ! :) australia is cool...
