Peace in Darfur? Not Likely.

Eric Reeves has a new article today on the recently-signed Abuja agreement in Sudan. Basically, it’s very, very unlikely that it will halt the ongoing genocide in Darfur. There’s no reason, after all, to trust the Khartoum government, which has never abided by any of the previous agreements, and has never paid a price for any of its previous violations.

More to the point, the genocidaires in Sudan have, for the past year, followed a strategy of “genocide by attrition”—making sure that badly-needed food and medical assistance can’t make its way to the displaced Darfuris—and on that front, already the government has refused to give humanitarian workers the access they need, despite the fact that this was ostensibly part of the agreement.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
