Witnessing Darfur: Genocide Emergency
In July 2004, the Committee on Conscience of the United States Holocaust memorial Museum declared a Genocide Emergency for Sudan’s western region of Darfur. Tens of thousands of civilians have been murdered there and thousands more have been raped by Sudanese government soldiers and members of the government-supported militia sometimes referred to as the Janjaweed. About two million civilians have been driven from their homes (2.5 million by spring 2007). View this DVD to find out what is happening in Darfur and how to access resources to help spread the word. Includes DARFUR EYEWITNESS, with Brian Steidle (10 minutes - mARCH 2005) and STARING GENOCIDE IN THE FACE, with Jerry Fowler (7 minutes - May 2004).
