darfur needs more peacekeepers

one year later, peacekeepers promised to darfur have not arrived

On July 31, 2007, the U.N. Security Council promised to deploy 19,000 additional peacekeepers to help stop the violence in Darfur. One year later, barely 2,000 of the authorized peacekeepers have arrived in Darfur, and those who are there lack the equipment and resources to do their jobs.

Raise your voice and let the five most powerful members of the U.N. Security Council know that failure to fully deploy peacekeepers in Darfur is morally unacceptable.
