Sept 12 -Rally at the UN to demand action on Sudan
11 years ago
-Urgent Appeal to iAbolish Activists- YOUR HELP IS NEEDED FOR A HISTORIC RALLY ON SEPTEMBER 12 AT THE UNITED NATIONS STOP RACIST GENOCIDE AND SLAVERY IN SUDAN! SUNDAY, SEPT. 12, 2pm - UN Plaza Dag Hammarskjold Park, 47th St, NYC The American Anti-Slavery Group is mobilizing people of conscience across America for an emergency rally at the United Nations to urge world leaders to act NOW to stop genocide in Sudan. The rally comes at a critical time: one million Sudanese may be killed by December. We hope to turn out hundreds of people at the UN to send a message - but we need your help. 1) Understand the catastrophe: Black people across Sudan are under threat of annihilation. The mass murder of Blacks in Darfur is the first genocide of the 21st century: 50,000 have been slaughtered, 2 million forced into the desert as refugees, and thousands raped and enslaved. In the South, the Shiluk Kingdom faces extermination. Across Sudan, millions of Blacks forced from their homes - Muslims, Christians, and animists - now live in refugee camps. Yet prominent members of the UN Security Council - Russia, China, Algeria, and Pakistan - are holding up any effective international action. 2) Mobilize your friends and family: We have less than three weeks to recruit people for the rally. We want you to come join us - and bring your friends. If you live in the New York Metro area, download a rally flyer (http://www.iabolish.com/support/unrally/flyer.pdf) and distribute it in your community. If you live outside New York, forward this email to friends (http://ga0.org/freedom_action/join-forward.html?domain=freedom_action&r=CdawDa91oBPJ) who do and encourage them to attend for you. 3) Help us raise $3,600: Many organizations are co-sponsoring the rally (including Sudanese groups like Darfur Peace and Development and South Sudan Voice for Freedom). But we are taking the lead - and we need your financial support to make the rally a success. Please make a contribution today. We hope to raise $3,600 by September 12, and we hope we can count on you. (Donations can be made at https://www.iabolish.com/support/unrally/index.php#contribute) For more information, see the rally website at http://www.iAbolish.com/Sudan or call our office at 1-800-884-0719. Thank you for your support in this time of crisis. In Freedom, Dr. Charles Jacobs President American Anti-Slavery Group
