Report: "Rescuing the Peace in Southern Sudan"

"Major conflict could return to southern Sudan unless there is urgent international action to save the peace agreement that ended one of Africa’s longest and deadliest wars, ten aid agencies warned today.

 

In a new report “Rescuing the Peace in Southern Sudan” – released ahead of the fifth anniversary of the signing of the peace agreement between the Sudanese government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – the agencies said a lethal cocktail of rising violence, chronic poverty and political tensions has left the peace deal on the brink of collapse."

Executive Director Alex Wagner Op-Ed: "The Arrest and Torture of an American in Burma (And Why You Never Heard of Him)"

"While I was sitting in a Congressional House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Burma on a beautiful fall day last week, a Burmese-born American citizen who happens to live thirty minutes from Capitol Hill was languishing in Rangoon's notorious Insein prison. The Burmese courts have charged this American, Kyaw Zaw Lwin, with fraud and forgery, though the ruling regime's official mouthpiece, the New Light of Myanmar, has also accused him of terrorist activities. Kyaw Zaw Lwin's defense counsel has said that his client was physically tortured during his detention and denied any allegations that he was plotting to incite unrest. Last week, his trial began."

NOOW Partner The Enough Project’s Suliman Baldo Testifies before UK Parliamentary Group on Sudan

On September 13, NOOW partner The Enough Project Senior Advisor Suliman Baldo testified before the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on Sudan and South Sudan. This inquiry, UK-Sudan Relations – Consequences of Engagement, examined changes in UK engagement with the Government of Sudan, as well as “the drivers of these changes and their likely ramifications.” The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) held this inquiry with the goal of producing “an independent, balanced, and forward-looking review of oral and written evidence to inform the appropriate form of UK-Sudan relations.” The inquiry format allowed government officials, academics, civil society members, and NGOs from the UK, Sudan, and various other countries the opportunity to present written testimony. The APPG requested testimony on four topics: conflict areas, migration and the Khartoum Process, extremism, and humanitarian issues and human rights.

Board Members George Clooney and John Prendergast Op-Ed: "War crimes shouldn’t pay in South Sudan"

This op-ed, co-authored by board members George Clooney and John Prendergast, originally appeared in The Washington Post.

 

South Sudan’s leaders are perfecting the art of the diplomatic bait-and-switch while fighting over the spoils of a resource-rich state, destroying the world’s newest country in the process. The leaders agreed to a peace deal, but have implemented few of its provisions. They have agreed to a new judicial mechanism to try war crimes, but have delayed its creation. They have agreed to allow peacekeepers in, but they restrict their movement and whip up resentment against the United Nations. They have agreed to international humanitarian aid, but their forces obstruct the aid agencies at every turn and even attack, rob and rape aid workers. Meanwhile, more than 5 million peopleare suffering from hunger and require food aid.
