OC For Darfur meeting is tomorrow, Tuesday July 20th at 6:30p

Hi everyone,

Obama: Bashir should go to the Hague

Obama: Bashir should go to the Hague

We had a lovely get-together at Barbara’s and Betsy’s house this past Saturday to celebrate the 10th Birthday of the International Criminal Court (ICC). It is quite amazing what this young institution has accomplished in such a short amount of time (see the accomplishments).

Watching The Reckoning brought up many questions. Is the ICC achieving it’s mission of bringing to justice the worst offenders of crimes in the world? Who is responsible for apprehending Bashir now that the court has issued a warrant for his arrest? Even though 111 nations are members of the court, why hasn’t Russia, China and the United States joined? Should the US join?

The next OC For Darfur planning meeting is this Tuesday, July 20th 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 Sudan, Congo and Burma.
  • Wrap-up from our Birthday Celebration for the ICC.
  • Planning for our meeting with Congressman Ed Royce’s office this week.
  • What should we do for Genocide Prevention Month next April?
  • The United States and the International Criminal Court (ICC).

If you’d like to know more about us and our various activities, please join us at the meeting. We would love to have you participate.
