Genocide, Gender, Awareness, Action - Feb. 28 - Mar. 3

A dynamic, diverse group of student activists have formed a coalition to

focus attention on

genocide in the past (Armenia, Rwanda, the Holocaust) and the present

(Sudan), while also

remembering those who have perished. Gender issues in genocide will

also be discussed

during this week of activities at UCLA. Outstanding students, scholars,

and activists will be


Along with the most updated information about the crisis, the activities

are geared to a plan

of action as well -- how people can make a difference, how they can get

involved, what

individuals can do to bring about change to alleviate the crisis.

Crisis in Darfur: A Week of Awareness, A Call to Action

February 28 - March 3, 2005

The violence in the Darfur region of western Sudan intensified in 2003

when two groups,

the Sudanese Liberation Movement and the Justice and Equality movement

declared open

rebellion against the government. Khartoum responded aggressively,

allegedly backing the

so-called jinjaweid militias (evil on horseback) which have committed

crimes against

humanity against citizens in Darfur. The UN reports that upwards of

70,000 have been

killed in the conflict though other sources estimate that over 300,000

people have perished

and 2.5 million have been displaced.
