‘Never Again’ isn’t enough
Genocide seems to be a thing of the past.
‘Never Again’ was said after the Holocaust and after Rwanda, but yet, there is Darfur.
The Darfur genocide is the first genocide of the 21st century. In which religion, ethnicity, and politics are a deciding factor in who dies and who does not.
Yes. It is still occurring.
Yes. People are still dying.
Yes. The international community has been aware of this crisis since 2003.
No. There hasn’t been much efforts in helping Darfur.
Is the lack of assistance due to capitalist motivations?
Or is it because of the complex situation and the difficulty in labels?
Does the term genocide really limit terms of action within politics?
Hundreds of thousands of people have died and are continuing to die.
Millions have been displaced and forced to leave the place they call home.
After the first 2 or 3 years of the Darfur genocide, the world seems to have forgotten the little part of the world that faces the most dangerous version of discrimination.
But it is still happening and affecting the lives of millions.
The region of Darfur does not have oil and does not have resources the United States or other countries could exploit and benefit from.
But they have innocent people who need help and that should be enough for the international community to exert efforts for the cause.
If the politicians of the world will not act accordingly, it will be up to the us.
Save Darfur for the victims.
