Corruption continues

What did Sudanese President Bashir do with a world-infamous war criminal? He gave him a promotion.

Bashir has appointed the militia leader who helped orchestrate genocide in Darfur as a senior adviser on ethnic affairs.

This brash and consistent defiance of the U.N. won't stop - not as long as Bashir has China to protect him.

We must tell China that enough is enough, and our representatives can help. Leaders in Congress are gathering support for an official letter to President Hu of China letting him know that his indifference toward Darfur is unacceptable.

Click here to urge your representative to sign on to this bipartisan letter and send a strong message to China.

As you know, China is Sudan's largest trade partner and foreign investor. It is Sudan's biggest defender in the international community, and it is the regime's largest arms supplier. But China played a crucial role in getting Sudan to agree to a hybrid peacekeeping force last summer.

Simply put, China has the power to put an end to the games Bashir is playing.

Our representatives must pressure the Chinese government to lead the world community and end the violence in Darfur. Click here now to send your message to your representative.

After you have sent your message, please click here to ask your friends and family to join you in urging their representatives to engage China to bring peace to Darfur.

Thank you for your strong commitment to return peace to Darfur.
