Sudan365 Beat for Peace (video)

Our friends from the San Franscisco Bay Area Darfur Coalition created this wonderful video to mark the elections in Sudan this April 11th.

Enjoy!

The Beat for Peace continues in San Francisco as we approach another monumental moment in the journey of Sudan. The Sudanese are calling out to the international community to be vote monitors during the April elections. Watch the video and visit Sudan365.org for more information.

Global Day for Sudan this Saturday, January 9th

Hi everyone,

2010 is an important year for Sudan. Elections are scheduled to be held in April and the referendum where the Southern Sudanese decide whether or not to stay part of Sudan is only a year away. Will the Sudanese government allow free and fair elections? Will we have genuine peace where the people of Darfur feel safe to return to their homes?

The Save Darfur Coalition and many other groups are organizing a Global Day for Sudan this Saturday, January 9th. The common theme for these events are performers who are drumming for peace. Members of Stop Genocide Now and Jewish World Watch are organizing one such event locally here in Los Angeles. Below are the details.
