Board Member John Prendergast Op-Ed: "Voices for war and peace in South Sudan"

This op-ed, co-authored by board member John Prendergast, originally appeared in the St. Louis-Post Dispatch.

 

Alice (not her real name) was living in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, when war erupted in December 2013. As soldiers went from house to house shooting anyone they found, she witnessed the killing of seven of her relatives and her pastor.

Testimony of Board Member John Prendergast - Independent South Sudan: A Failure of Leadership

Testimony of John Prendergast, Not On Our Watch board member, before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's hearing on “Independent South Sudan: A Failure of Leadership”, given on December 10, 2015.

 

Chairman Corker, Ranking Member Cardin, and members of the committee, I’m grateful for the opportunity to testify about South Sudan at such a critical fork in the road for the youngest nation in the world. Working with the executive branch and through your actions, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has the opportunity to help this new country change course and make progress on implementing the hard-won peace agreement that was signed back in August. If these efforts fail, South Sudan will likely be plunged back into a full-scale civil war that surely would be – based on past experience – one of the world’s deadliest.
