The State Department is readying the proverbial red carpet for one of the leading architects and implementers of the genocide in Sudan, Nafie Ali Nafie.
To survivors of genocide in Sudan, Nafie Ali Nafie is a notorious figure. As a senior advisor to Sudan’s president, Nafie headed the feared National Intelligence and Security Service, established the “ghost houses” of torture, and helped design the regime’s strategy to eliminate or expel indigenous African people by bombing, attacking, raping and starving innocent civilians. The ICC named Nafie as among the key senior officials who were complicit in Bashir’s crimes.
The Administration’s invitation for high-level talks undermines established U. S. policy and violates President Obama’s promise to bar perpetrators of serious human rights violations from entry into the country.
Please join us in protesting this alarming plan: Ask Secretary of State John Kerry to rescind the invitation. This link will take to the Act For Sudan web page.

Ten years ago...
Ten years ago, fighting broke out in Darfur. The killing continues today as in other border areas of Sudan. Join the global community and stand up for the people of Sudan.
Ten years ago, 6–year–old Raouda was
driven from her home in Darfur, a western region of Sudan, when
government militias known as the Janjaweed attacked her village.
Raouda’s peaceful and fertile region of
Darfur—roughly the size of Texas or France—has been devastated by
violence, war, and starvation since early 2003. As we look back on the
past 10 years since the conflict began, we are reminded that more than
300,000 people have lost their lives and another 4 million have been
displaced from their homes.
