Has the Darfur Genocide Ended??

Remember the Darfur genocide? For some reason late last night Darfur came to mind. Haven’t seen or heard anything about it in the news of late. The problem must be solved, right? The mainstream media has moved on to the nuclear threat posed by Iran and the Syrian government slaughtering its citizens. Oh, do not forget all the wrongs being righted by the Occupy Movement. (Yes, that last sentence is pure sarcasm.) Consider that if all the media attention on Occupy were instead shifted to the ongoing troubles in Darfur, that some of these issues might be ended or at the very least diminished. Here’s a thought, what if Occupy directed all their energy towards the issue of Darfur? Dare I say that Occupy might then actually have an impact on an issue of human suffering that truly matters? In any event, here are three valuable links that might bring you up to date on what is happening in Darfur. By all means please, please do further research. Let’s see if we can bring the genocide in Darfur back to the public consciousness.
