Send a Sign that You Care about Darfur Genocide

Africa Action is circulating a petition about the ongoing genocide in Darfur, which seems to know no end. The goal is to obtain 400,000 US signatures -- one for each known fatality from the genocide to date -- to present to President Bush (who is presently "going on with his life" with such dedication that he doesn't have time to chat while on vacation to the grieving mother of a fallen American soldier, but that's a discussion for another time)

I've blogged about Darfur before (see below) and will continue to do so, as have others. The wrong is clear, the need for action is clear, but genocide goes on since our leaders appear to consider Darfur a low priority. so instead of writing about it at length now, I'll just simply plead, to those of conscience, that you take a moment and add your name. People are still dying.

Here is the link to the petition:
