Michigan Citizens for Darfur sign now

We, the undersigned, are gravely concerned about the continued suffering in Darfur, Sudan and eastern Chad. We therefore are asking the government of the United States to take action.

We urge that the following steps be taken immediately:

* Enact and enforce targeted sanctions against the leadership of the regime in Khartoum, including sanctions against the companies used by the leadership to finance the genocide.

* Implement all sanctions and measures for which you were given legal authority when Congress enacted, the Darfur Peace and Accountability Act, including blocking from U.S. ports those ships that have transported Sudanese oil.

* Engage at the United Nations and with world leaders to enact the strictest targeted worldwide sanctions regime against Sudans leadership.

* Pressure the government of China to bear responsibility as a world leader and work to protect human rights in Darfur.

* Develop and implement, with our NATO allies, of a no-fly zone covering Sudanese military flights over Darfur. This could be accomplished by immobilizing Sudanese planes known to have taken part in illegal bombing missions.

* Engage with the United Nations to prepare and deploy a protection force for civilians in eastern Chad and the Central African Republic.

* Prepare for the deployment of a credible and effective international force to Darfur to protect vulnerable civilians and ensure conditions for effective humanitarian aid. This should include a request to Congress to pay the U.S.s full share of UN peacekeeping dues.

* Produce a military contingency plan to respond to the potentially cataclysmic collapse of security and humanitarian aid networks in Darfur.

* Begin building camps and barracks for phase II of the AU-UN hybrid force, for which $50 million has been included by Congress within the soon-to-be-passed FY07 Continuing Resolution.
