Darfur 3 is posted, I am no expert on the situation, but sad to say things have not seemed to get at all better since I blogged about Darfur 2 back in October. These aggregations of links, news, analysis, and action items are essentially what makes blogs so useful. The overwhelming impact of seeing this genocide play from so many different angles takes the breath away.
"Darfur is Rwanda in slow motion... To date, more than 400,000 Darfuris have perished, half the number of Rwanda"
It probably does not feel like slow motion to the 1.2 million people who have been forced out of their homes.
One link I did not see is Alertnet which has an excellent, detailed summary of this and other crisis points.
GTD Productivity guru David Allen says that the most important question to ask yourself is: "what is the next action step?" Most important link for me on both Darfur 2 and Darfur 3 is So What Can I Do?, here are several methods you can use to help decide what your next action should be.
CareUSA is one such organization. They supply medicine, food, and other essential services to the million plus people who have been "displaced" in Sudan. I can think of a lot of terms I would use to describe getting forced out of my home, onto a death march and into a refugee camp (best case scenario) but I don't think "displaced" quite captures it. The death is as high as 10,000/month due to violence, disease, and malnutrition. The outlook for 06 is quite bleak at present. This is a good time to choose a charitable next action.
