Calling on the Peoples Republic of China to use its significant power to stop the mass murder taking place in Darfur, Sudan.

The Honorable Hu Jintao, PRESIDENT of the Peoples Republic of China;

We, the undersigned are calling on the government of the Peoples Republic of China, in its respective capacity as permanent member of the UNITED NATIONS hereby referred to as the U.N and its charter the UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL; herby referred to as the U.N.S.C to:

Use its outstanding influence as the country having the strongest political, economic, and military ties in Sudan; to stop the massacres and the unspeakable violence and suffering in Darfur.

Whereas, the unfortunate events taking place in Darfur are sheer violations of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION of HUMAN RIGHTS, articles 2, 3, and 5 which states:

Article 2.

Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

Article 3.

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Article 5.

No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Whereas, since 2003, when the conflict began in Darfur, hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced, tortured and murdered;

Whereas, 2 500 000 people have fled their homes in Darfur to face the horror and hardship of starvation, disease and rape;

Whereas, on September 23rd 2004, former Secretary of State Collin Powell stated before the Committee on Foreign Relations that genocide has occurred and may still be occurring in Darfur;

Whereas, in January 2005, a U.N International Commission of Inquiry established by the U.N Security Council Resolution 1564 also found strong evidence of genocide in Darfur;

Whereas, in February 2006, secretary of State Rice said that genocide was committed and in fact continues in Darfur;

Whereas in April 2007 at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum President George W. Bush declared that no one can doubt that genocide is the only word for what is happening in Darfur and that we have a moral obligation to stop it;

Whereas due to its economic interest in the region, China has an outstanding caliber which therefore can be used to positively influence the Sudanese government to immediately give up its mass murder activities and to accept the United Nations peacekeepers to come together and help the United Nations African Union peacekeeping mission;

Whereas china is preparing to host the Olympic Summer Games of 2008, the most renowned, honored and prestigious international sporting event;

Whereas China should be held accountable to act accordingly with the Olympics standard of preserving human dignity around the world including Darfur, Sudan. China should acknowledge the spirit of the Olympics, which is bringing together people and nations worldwide in peace, and that it should realize that any action: directly or indirectly supporting the acts of genocide in Darfur is a total act of inconsistency and incompatibility with the Olympics spirit mentioned herein;

We, the undersigned hereby suggest that the Government of the Peoples Republic of China:

1/ keep inoperative all arms sales and military cooperation with Sudan until the massacres has ended;

2/ provide greater humanitarian assistance to victims in Darfur and publicly address and acknowledge the massacres, displacement and human rights violations taking place in Darfur;

3/ clarify to the Sudanese government that their continuous obstruction of International Community is unacceptable and it acts as a serious threat to the Chinese-Sudanese relations politically, and economically and;

4/ Contribute to all multilateral peacekeeping efforts put forth to accelerate a DARFUR Peace Process.
