Genocide in Darfur By Keeghan Pierce and Rikkie Cleeton.
Background Since Sudan’s independence in the 1950’s, there have been numerous insurgencies against the central government. In southern Sudan, the government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement signed a Comprehensive Peace Agreement to end a twenty-year-old civil war on January 9, 2005. Periodic tensions between the black African tribes and the Arabs settled in the area can be traced back to the 1930s. During the current violence, a United Nations fact-finding mission discovered that many ethnically African villages had been targeted for destruction, while nearby Arabic villages remained unscathed. These facts demonstrate that both the victims and the perpetrators subjectively viewed the black African tribes as a distinct group, further affirming their group status under the Genocide Convention. Because of all the genocide in Darfur the area as a whole canstantly lives in fear of if they will live or die that day.
What the people are going through! Women in Darfur are being rapped and beaten Strong Children are being used as laborers. Men are also being used as laborers.
Statistics Over the past six years, over 400,000 Darfurian civilians have been killed. 97% of these killings have been against innocent civilians and executed by militia groups instructed by the government.
