Appeal to China -- please send to President of China



Please send to: His Excellency Hu Jintao, President, People's Republic of China

Since 2003, the Sudanese government has fought the guerilla insurgencies in Darfur by targeting innocent civilians. Hundreds of thousands have been killed and 2.5 million displaced into inadequate refugee camps. The US Congress, on July 23, 2004, declared that the atrocities unfolding in Darfur are genocide.

Despite a world-wide outcry against the Darfur Genocide, the killing continues. In August, 2006, United Nations Security Council resolution 1706 called for a robust UN peacekeeping force, but the Sudanese government had prevented its deployment in Darfur. On July 31, 2007, the UN Security Council Resolution 1769 passed unanimously, calling for a hybrid UN/AU (Organization of African Unity) force of 26,000 to be deployed by the end of the year. [The force is called UNAMID, UNAfricanMissionInDarfur.] The world community must exert maximum pressure on the Sudanese regime, and also on China to ensure that the peacekeepers do their job.

China, through its development of Sudanese oil resources and provision of loans, is the mainstay of the Sudanese economy and it continues to supply arms and has defended Sudan in the UN Security Council. Experts agree that if China applies maximum pressure, the Sudanese regime will be forced to allow in the UN/AU peacekeepers. Our task is to convince China to exert that pressure on Sudan.

A May 7, 2007 letter from 108 members of the US House of Representatives to Hu Jintao, President of China, says, in part:

……the upcoming 2008 Beijing Olympic Games are going to be an important event for the image

of the PRC [People's Republic of China]…It would be a disaster for China if the games were marred

by protests from concerned individuals and groups who will undoubtedly link your government to

the continued atrocities in Darfur….Already there are calls to boycott what is increasingly being

described as the "2008 Genocide Olympics.".…we urge you to protect your country's image from being irredeemably tarnished, through association with a genocidal regime, for the purposes of economic gains.

Informed citizens around the globe are convinced that China has the power to force Sudan to stop the genocide and to permit UNAMID [the UN/AU peacekeepers] into Darfur. If China fails to act, millions are likely not only to protest and boycott the "Genocide Olympics" (the 2008 Summer Olympics will be hosted by China), but may well, in their extreme frustration, turn to boycotting other Chinese products and services.
