Please Help with your voice 4 Darfur

The Sudanese government has thumbed its nose at all opportunities to cooperate with international efforts to end the violence.

The Bush administration has already developed "Plan B," a multi-tiered plan to push Sudan to end the genocide, but they keep delaying its launch. Adding to the frustration, despite the continuing mass-displacement and attacks, Special Envoy Andrew Natsios claimed last week that genocide is no longer occurring in Darfur.

You are one of our most committed activists and we need your help to encourage President Bush and his advisors to launch "Plan B" before more lives are lost in Darfur.

Click here now to send a message asking President Bush to launch his plan to make Sudan cooperate with international efforts to end the violence.

The Sudanese government-sponsored genocide has already claimed at least 400,000 lives, displaced 2.5 million people and left more than 3.5 million men, women and children struggling to survive amid violence and starvation.

We simply can't afford to wait any longer.

That is why the Save Darfur Coalition is urging President Bush to:

Enact and enforce stronger sanctions;
Prepare and oversee the deployment of international peacekeeping forces;
Implement the U.N. authorized no-fly zone;
Fully fund the United States' share of peacekeeping and humanitarian aid; and
Develop a military contingency plan to respond to the potential collapse of security and humanitarian aid networks in Darfur.
We need your help to make sure they get the message right away.

Will you please sign our petition to the President today? Click here now to add your name and send a strong message to the White House to implement "Plan B" now.

Once you've signed the petition, please forward this email message to your friends and family and ask them to join you.

Thank you again for your dedication.

Best regards,

Ben Prochazka

P.S. It is rewarding to see that the atrocities in Darfur are being recognized by other parts of society. To illustrate this trend, we are featuring a recent partnership between eBay and Designers for Darfur. Last Friday Designers for Darfur held a charity fashion show in New York featuring the work of top designers. Outfits and accessories from the show are currently being auctioned off on eBay. All proceeds will benefit the Save Darfur Coalition. Please click here to visit the Designers for Darfur eBay auction.

The Save Darfur Coalition is an alliance of over 175 faith-based, advocacy and humanitarian organizations whose mission is to raise public awareness about the ongoing genocide in Darfur and to mobilize a unified response to the atrocities that threaten the lives of more than two million people in the Darfur region.
