Transcript of Darfur

War in Darfur This takes place in Africa. In the country of Sudan.
This region is called Darfur. The recorded history of Darfur begins with the reign of the Keira dynasty in the seventeenth century. In 1875, the Anglo-Egyptian Co-dominion in Khartoum ended the dynasty. The British allowed Darfur a measure of autonomy until formal annexation in 1916. However, the region remained underdeveloped through the period of colonization and into independence in 1956. The majority of national resources were directed toward the riverine Arabs clustered along the Nile near Khartoum. This pattern of structural inequality and overly underdevelopment resulted in increasing restiveness among Darfuris. The influence of regional geopolitics and war by proxy, coupled with economic hardship and environmental degradation, from soon after independence led to sporadic armed resistance from the mid-1980s. The continued violence culminated in an armed resistance movement around 2003 The people in Darfur are being killed by the Janjaweed
because the people of Darfur are Christain and the
Janjaweed want them to convert over to Islam. Since 2003,
200,000 are dead and 2.5 million are displaced. The Janjaweed
is the militia doing all the killings. They say that even the
Sudanese government funds the Janjaweed. They ambush
the people and unleash air strikes on them. The Darfur people
are displaced all through Sudan and given very little attention.
There are some refugee camps in Chad. A program helping these
people is called UNICEF. Reason Why We Chose The War in Darfur The war in Darfur is a lot bigger concern than most people realize. It is believed that over 100 people are murdered everyday. Men and children are getting slaughtered, women are being raped and killed, all for absolutely no reason, and the government over there is allowing this. It is a mass genocide that needs to be put to an end. Whats Disturbing About it The reason why we chose this topic to get everybodys attention on how big of a deal it is. Most people weren't even aware this was taking place. Innocent people are being killed and thrown into
refugee camps and we can't do anything about it. It's like the halocaust all over again,
except this time nobodys helping. Up to 500 people die a day in Darfur because of diseases, starvation, and the mass murderings. Eventually the entire population of Darfur is going to be wiped out if we don't put an end to this massacre. THE END
