Today’s the Day – Rally For Darfur!

By David Rubenstein, Save Darfur Coalition

You’ve written your local paper. You’ve called the White House. You’ve worn a green wristband. In whatever way you’ve chosen to help, you’ve already made a difference in the effort to stop the genocide in Darfur.

Don’t stop now. Your presence today at the “Save Darfur Now: Voices to Stop Genocide” rally and concert in Central Park – or at one of other events being held throughout the world – is just as important as all the work you’ve already done.

Recently the United Nations Security Council authorized a U.N. peacekeeping force for Darfur. The presence of a peacekeeping force is the only measure that will provide the security the people of Darfur desperately need.

But peacekeeping troops won’t be deployed until the Sudanese government permits them. This means pressure from the international community is more important than ever.

Today in Central Park’s East Meadow, and at events across the country and the world, we will demonstrate that the world is watching and that it will not stand by as innocent men, women, and children in Darfur continue to suffer.

Whether you will join us in the East Meadow from 2 to 5 p.m. today or whether you will attend another event, the people of Darfur need you to be there.

Thank you for your continued support. See you in Central Park.
