Darfur : Heavy Storm Warning

Rene Wadlow*





The lives of children and mothers have been placed at high risk by the forced withdrawal of non-governmental organizations (NGO) from Darfur, Sudan. The withdrawal was an act of vengeance on the part of the Sudanese President, Omar al-Bashir when arrest warrants of the International Criminal Court (ICC) were signed against him. The people who suffer are Sudanese victims of five years of violence in Darfur. Nearly three million people have been displaced as villages have been destroyed, crops burned and farm animals deliberately killed. Wells which provide water have been filled in with sand. As a result, a large percentage of the population depends on food, shelter and medical aid from the United Nations and humanitarian NGOs.



President al-Bashir has expelled 13 of the major international NGOs and closed down three of the most active Sudanese relief organizations accusing them all of being “spies” for the ICC. The ICC had no need for “spies” to collect accurate information on the tragic situation in Darfur. From the start of the Darfur conflict in 2003, there have been staff people from UN agencies, NGOs and journalists present and making accurate information available to UN human rights bodies. Many observers were in the Sudan to help rebuild after the destructive 1982-2005 North-South Civil War. Darfur had been peripheral to this struggle, though there had been warnings from the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Sudan that violence in Darfur was likely if social and economic measures were not taken quickly.







Efforts are being made by some Arab and African governments at the UN in both New York and Geneva to have the arrest warrants postponed for a year — a possibility which exists in the rules of the ICC. Such a postponement would not improve the situation in Darfur. It is not a lack of time but of political will which has prevented a negotiated settlement to the Darfur conflict. However, pressure from the combined weight of the League of Arab States and the African Union — Sudan is a member of both — could modify Sudan’s position.



The Office to the United Nations, Geneva, Association of World Citizens, recommends letters to the UN office of both the League and the AU appealing that the ban on humanitarian relief organizations be lifted and that serious negotiations on Dafur be undertaken. Letters should be sent to:



1) H.E. Mr Yahya Mahmassani,

Permanent Observer for the League of Arab States to the UN

866 UN Plaza (Suite 494), New York, NY, 10017, USA





2) Permanent Observer of the African Union

305 East 47th Street (5th Floor), 3 Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

New York, NY 10017, USA

YES TRUE. LET JESUS GIVE THEM LIEF AND PROTECTION.
1. how is this allowed to go so far ? why not prevent & stop before it gets this bad ? am extremely worried about this point , i live in cape town south africa , & suffer incredibly bad increasing abuse, psycho-abuse, bullying, harassments , etc - by parents, family & others ; & in the town .
no-one is prepared to help me or stop the pattern now.
2. the suffering of the animals caught up inj the middle of the problems of sudan & elsewhere - again , human beings have the responsibility to bring special miracle animal emissiaries & rebirthers , special beings to rescue the animals somehow ; & already there should be enforced rules to say animals may not be touched in a war - strife conflict between 2 opposing parties .
3. both sides of the dispute have some similarities & both are mutually consent to be killing animals & nature fairies , & bnoth do not deserve any contry in the first place , because of how badly they treat animals & perpetuate drought .

So many suffer for the power games of so few. This will be in my prayers and meditations. I will spread the word as well. May spirit guide us, may we learn to stand strong together for one another. If not, these atrocities will be at all our doorsteps.

Much peace, light, and love.
Much thanks for your important efforts. With all best wishes, Rene
