Save Darfur - Watch this Movie
















A couple of American school kids have taken the inisiative to make an informative video for their school. If you do not know what is happening in Darfur, watch this: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/310700/darfur_africa/

Just a word of caution for anybody with a slow connection, Werner: the video length is 4:47 minutes. It took me twenty minutes to download 2 minutes' worth, and that's where I gave up, sorry.

But even if you can't see the video, there are some good introductions online. I like these two:

BBC
Q&A: Sudan's Darfur conflict

International Crisis Group
Sudan

Thanks, D, and sorry; I should have thought about those with dial-up connections.

Hi Deirdre and Werner - I'm on broadband and had difficulty in viewing clip all the way through, others might have given up in the time it took me to see-hear whole thing. I use mac and may not have right plug-in for that particular video.

btw I would not recommend International Crisis Group as any kind of commentary on the war in Darfur - seem all too self serving, keen on sensationalism, making a name for themselves, irresponsible in my view - especially John Prendergast. I take what they say with a pinch of salt.

Werner: No problem. The great thing about being a dial-up-er is that life is so slow for us, no matter what the problem, we've always got time to adjust :)
(joking)

Ingrid: Thanks for the warning on the ICG. Forewarned is forearmed - I'll get the "spin" detectors ready before reading anything more from them. It seems to be a common problem, though (and maybe it's just part of politics and policy-making) but everybody seems to have an opinion on what should be done and it's hard to know which are based on facts or good thinking, and which are just pushing bias of some kind.
