Putting Pressure on the G8 Summit

STAND and the Genocide Intervention Network (GI-NET) just signed onto an open letter championed by Human Rights First.  The letter focuses on the upcoming G8 Summit in July, which consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the UK, and the US.

The letter asks the leaders of the G8 to issue a joint statement, calling for:

  1. An immediate cessation of the violence
  2. Halting the transfers of arms
  3. Deployment of UNAMID
  4. A reinvigorated peace process and a commitment to the CPA
  5. Justice and accountability for the atrocities committed.
