Hundreds Rally in New York for Human Rights in Sudan

Hundreds of activists attended our GET ON THE BUS rally for human rights in Sudan, outside the Sudanese Permanent Mission to the United Nations on April 5th. Participants included Amnesty members as well as members of Sudan human rights groups and of the Sudanese community. We called on the government of Sudan to protect civilians and internally displaced persons in the conflict areas of Darfur, Abyei, Blue Nile and South Kordofan. We also collected more than 1,000 letters to President Bashir, signed by Amnesty members and other human rights activists. Earlier in the day, AIUSA Sudan country specialist Denise Bell spoke about human rights in Sudan at our speakers panel at New York City’s Cooper Union. We’ll post photos from the day’s events as soon as they’re available.
