OC For Darfur planning meeting is this Tuesday, January 19th

Hi everyone,

This past Thursday, The Sudanese People Liberation Movement (SPLM) nominated Yasir Arman to run against president Omar Al-Bahir in the first democratic elections in Sudan since the coup d’état in June 1989 that brought General Bashir to power. Mr. Arman inspired by President Obama’s "change" campaign is hoping to walk a similar path.

“SPLM is a national liberation movement has been struggling for many years and made great sacrifices, it stands with the issues of change and ‘change’ is the first word in the program of the SPLM, as well as the issue of a real transition to democracy, and justice for marginalized and vulnerable, human rights, the rights of women, is the most important is what we want done” he said.

Our next planning meeting is this Tuesday, January 19th at 6:30p.
We will meet at Patty’s office in Newport Beach. Here is the address.

Patty’s office @ 6:30p
2424 SE Bristol Street, Suite 300
Newport Beach, CA 92660

We will discuss:

  • Update on what’s going on in Darfur, Congo and Burma.
  • Upcoming book fairs, documentary screenings and other events by Huntington Beach Reads Program [link].
  • Orange County Walk Against Genocide in April.

If you’d like to get involved and help with the planning of any of these activities, I hope you will join us :)

See you on Tuesday.
