SAN FRANCISCO, July 24, 2007 - While people are still suffering and dying in Darfur (see "Sudan - Cauldron of Tragedy"), there is a country whose position in improving the dramatic situation in this war-ridden region of Sudan is critical: China.

China is the largest foreign investor as well as the largest trade partner of Sudan. Additionally, China has just begun its term as president of the UN Security Council, and will also host the 2008 Summer Olympics. All of these factors make China a very important ally in solving the crisis in Darfur.

In recognition of this fact, this Thursday, July 26, vigils will be held at all Chinese diplomatic posts in the US. A petition to president Hu Jintao will be delivered urging the Chinese government to take decisive action to stop the genocide in Darfur. The event is organized by members and volunteers of the Save Darfur Coalition, of which Catholics for the Common Good is a member.

ACTION

  1. Attend a vigil at one of the Chinese diplomatic posts this Thursday, July 26.
  2. Sign the petition to stop the genocide in Darfur.
  3. More action.
