Human Rights in Darfur, Sudan: Online Chat Transcripts

Join Adotei Akwei, AIUSA Campaign's Director, for a chat on the latest news from Darfur and Amnesty International's human rights concerns. This chat is co-sponsored by Amnesty International USA and Moving Ideas.

Amnesty International continues to be deeply concerned about the severe humanitarian and human rights crisis in Darfur, Sudan. Over 50,000 people are believed to have been killed and thousands of others have died as a result o conflict related hardship and disease since the conflict in Darfur erupted two years ago. Systematic human rights abuses have been committed by all parties involved in the conflict, but primarily by the Sudanese government and government-backed Janjawid militia. Over 1.5 million civilians have been internally displaced by the conflict and 200,000 have sought refuge in neighboring Chad.
