STOP GENOCIDE IN SUDAN!
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED

The UN has called the Darfur, Sudan situation:'the worst humanitarian crisis of our time.' Last week, the US House and Senate unanimously passed resolutions declaring it a genocide, which legally obligates the US to intervene.  It is estimated that if nothing is done to stop the ethnic cleansing of the Sudanese people in Darfur, and no humanitarian aid reaches them in time, 600,000 people will be dead this year.
