A Day for Darfur:

Stop the Genocide–Protect the People

Help end the Cycle of Genocide that began in 1915 by calling for decisive US action to stop the genocide that is taking place today in the Darfur region of Sudan.

When: 12:00 noon–September 8–2005

Where: Lafayette Park–in front of the White House near the intersection of H & 16th Sts.–NW–Washington DC

The ANCA has joined with Africa Action–NAACP–National Council of Churches–American Jewish World Service–STAND–Sudan Peace Advocates–Evangelical Lutheran Church–Save Darfur–Sojourners–STAND–Sudan Peace Advocates–TransAfrica Forum–United Methodist Church–and many others in organizing this demonstration on the one year anniversary of the Administration’s determination that the state-sponsored crimes in Darfur meet the legal definition of genocide.

The purpose of this protest is to voice our disappointment over the lack of decisive U.S. action during the past twelve months and to call upon the President to take every step necessary to ensure an urgent multinational intervention to provide security to the people of Darfur.
