Nick Little's curator insight, December 14, 2012 11:03 AM

This website discuses the genocide in the Darfur region and how conflict started in Sudan. Sudan is about the size of France and home to about six million people. Conflict originated in 1989 when Omar Bashir took over Sudan by military force. This conflict allowed Muslim and Arab tribes and militias to struggle for political control in the Darfur region. Groups like the SPLA took up arms against the Sudanese government and the government responded by sending these Arab militias called the "Janjaweed" which translates to 'devils on horseback'. Since then over 400 towns and villages have been destroyed, half a million civilians have been killed, almost 3 million people have been displaced, and nearly 5 million rely on humanitarian aid. Now president of Sudan, Omar al Bashir, Sudanese Minister of State for the Interior Ahmad Harun and Janjaweed militia leader Ali Kushayb have arrest warrants by International Criminal Court(ICC) for "directing a campaign of mass killing, rape, and pillage" against the Sudanese people in Darfur.

 

Many factors have been fueling this war in Sudan. Politics, war, religion, and oil have separated a once united Sudan. I was surprised by the effects religion have also had on this civil war and genocide.

This is a great example of how some writers don't just write random lyrics each song has  a meaning and the meaning towards this song is a very touching thing. The fray always write very emotional and purposeful it's great that they are getting out and helping show there support to the healing country. The almost a million lost in the massacre was a terrible loss and it a loss that we did not do more when we should have but there are organizations against genocide trying there very best to prevent future genocide. also the many supporters.
