Daily Darfur

The Daily Darfur post is up on the coalition blog - the US has reportedly dropped its opposition to attempts to refer the crimes in Darfur to the International Criminal Court.

On a semi-related note, I strongly encourage you all to check out this short film from Aegis Trust - Not On My Watch (it takes a little while to load, but it is worth it.)

Also, there is this extremely hopeful news
A Rwandan Hutu militia group on Thursday denounced the Hutu-orchestrated 1994 genocide in the African country and announced it was stopping its fighting in the region.

The announcement by the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda, the main Hutu militia group, came at the end of four days of talks in Rome with the Sant'Egidio Community, a Catholic group that mediates world conflicts.

"The DFLR commits to ending armed struggle," the group said in a statement. "The DFLR decides to turn their fighting into political struggle."
According to GlobalSecurity.org
The [DFLR] rebel group is comprised of key members of the 1994 genocide, plus Hutu members of the former Rwandan army, as well as a mix of displaced Rwandan Hutus.
It is nice to get some good news for a change.
