The Government of Sudan again bombing villages and blocking humanitarian aid

Nearly eight months after the UN Security Council authorized deployment of a peacekeeping force to protect the people of Darfur, they are not safe from assault. Leaders in the US and China have been a focus of attention because of their inadequate response in the face of genocide, but European leaders have not yet heard widespread complaints about their inaction.

Please take these two easy actions today to let European leaders know that they need to fulfill their responsibility to protect the people of Darfur. Ask your friends to do the same.

* Call on the EU to ban the use of Euros for Sudanese oil transactions at www.noeurosforgenocide.org
- Click the link in section 2 to send a message to the European Commission
- Fill in the form with:
. North America - as your country of residence
. Other - as your nationality
. No Euros for genocide - as the Subject of your message to the EU
. Suggested text for "question" box:
Please do not allow EUROS to be used as blood money in Darfur!
Impose sanctions on the use of EUROS for Sudanese oil transactions.
* Call on the UN Security Council at www.wantedforwarcrimes.org to:
- Demand that Sudan hand over Ahmad Harun, a Sudanese Government Minister, and Ali Kushayb a leader of the Janjaweed, as directed by the ICC.
- Impose targeted sanctions on the Sudanese Government ministers protecting these two men.
