Save Darfur Coalition Petition

Did you know that 2.5 million people have already been driven from their homes in Darfur, Sudan?

Each day, these people face threats that are hard for many of us to even imagine -- rape, murder, disease, torture, and starvation.

These people need our help to stop this genocide and they need it NOW.

Please click the link below to sign the Save Darfur Coalition's petition urging President Bush and UN Secretary-General Annan to take immediate steps to
stop the killing.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of millions of people in the region who desperately need outside help.

The Save Darfur Coalition is urging the international community to prevent further killings, displacement, and rape by:

* Deploying the UN peacekeeping force that has already been authorized;
* Strengthening the understaffed African Union force that is already in Darfur;
* Establishing a no-fly zone;
* Increasing humanitarian aid; and
* Ensuring access for the delivery of food, medication and other essential supplies.

Please do not stand by while the violence continues - you CAN make a difference.

Click here now to take the first step by signing our petition:

Then please forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to join you.

Thank you for your help.

All the best,
David Rubenstein
