What China Must Do

The road to peace in Darfur goes through China.

China is Sudan's chief diplomatic sponsor and its largest foreign investor and trade partner. As a result, China can use its significant influence over the Sudanese government to determine Darfur's future.

This month China holds the presidency of the UN Security Council. China will also host the Summer Olympics in 2008, offering this powerful nation an unprecedented opportunity to shine on the world stage. But that will not happen if it continues to remain silent in the face of genocide.

Next week, we will deliver petitions to the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., and to Chinese consulates across the country asking Chinese President Hu to use his power to stop the genocide in Darfur. Click here to sign the petition now and remind China of its responsibility to bring an end to the suffering.

Please don't wait to add your name -- we need as many signers as we can get by this Friday, July 20th, to make our hand-delivery of the petitions as powerful as possible.

In the past, China has been one of Sudan's biggest defenders in the diplomatic world. But worldwide pressure is mounting and there couldn't be a better time to remind China that its international reputation is at stake.

This is a unique moment. The world is looking to China as it holds this critical role at the United Nations. And next year's Olympic Games are intended to be a worldwide celebration of hope for international cooperation and peace.

Click here now to tell China to use this opportunity to do everything in its power to bring an end to the crisis in Darfur.

Then please forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to join you in taking action by this Friday, July 20th.

As always, thanks for your impressive commitment to this movement.
