OC For Darfur planning meeting is this Tuesday, February 2nd

Hi everyone,

This Wedneday, the International Criminal Court (ICC) will issue a long awaited ruling on whether Sudanese President, Omar Al-Bashir committed genocide against citizens of his own country. Last year, the ICC issued an arrest warrant for Bashir for crimes against humanity and murder, but decided that the evidence presented by chief prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo did not meet the “threshold required by Genocide convention and Rome Statue to establish that the gravest crime [genocide] has been committed in Darfur.”

Many of us eagerly await this ruling as it will certainly have an impact on the elections in Sudan in April. Click here to read the entire article.

Our next planning meeting is this Tuesday, February 2nd 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.
  • Planning for the documentary screening of “God Grew Tired of Us” this Thursday.
  • Orange County Walk Against Genocide in April.
  • What should we do to commemorate Genocide Prevention month 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.
