I would like to inform you about a recent event happening in Sudan. In the province of Darfur, genocide is occurring. So far, over 500,000 Black Africans have been killed and 2,500,000 displaced by an Arab militia called the Jangaweed.
The government has sided with the Arabs and has been reported of bombing villages. The African Union has sent in 7,000 soldiers to try and stop the violence, but it hasn’t helped. The UK and the USA are pushing the UN to step in, but Sudan isn’t allowing the UN in their territory.
Mr. Mayo’s 8th grade class is working to help raise awarness of the cause. On March 6th and 7th, they hope to get over 1,000 comments on their blog. Help us make this cause a world issue and stop it once and for all.
