Darfur: Rally to Raise Awareness

Tomorrow (Sunday April 30th) there will be a series of rallies happening around North America to raise awareness of the terrible situation in Darfur, Sudan.

You can find out where in your vicinity this rally is happening here.

It is important that our political leaders, who have all cut back support to this region recently, understand the gravity of the situation: routine killings, rapes, and ethnic cleansing.

Is this the only place in the world (or Africa for that matter) that needs attention – no. It’s easy to say “What about Somalia?” or “What about this other country?”. The thing is, in the absence of a perfect solution to those questions I would rather err on the side of helping than sitting at my desk trying to address an impossibly large problem that satisfies all criteria.

If you live in Toronto, the rally starts tomorrow @ 1pm at Queen’s Park. Info located here.

If you are interested in getting involved, please do.
