The scale of the crisis facing South Sudan is hard to comprehend -- 2 million people have been displaced as the country has tumbled back into a greed-driven war that has also left almost half the population without enough food to eat.
To stop the death spiral, the United States and South Sudan's neighbors must urgently fashion a new approach to peacemaking that creates a more effective peace process, one with serious, biting consequences for those South Sudanese government and rebel leaders who continue to fan the flames of war and who are completely insulated from the suffering of their people

Report published today by The Enough Project details Violent Groups Earning Millions from Theft in War, Getting Away with It.
Report published today by The Enough Project calls on the international community to leverage economic pressure on the regime of President Omar al-Bashir, in support of an inclusive and comprehensive national dialogue in Sudan.
One decade after Darfur’s Janjaweed militiamen earned global infamy as “devils on horseback,” Sudan is experiencing brutal violence at their hands once again. Newly armed and outfitted, re-branded as the "Rapid Support Force" (RSF) and flying the national flag, the government of President Omar al-Bashir has unleashed this new military entity, in a devastating campaign of mass atrocities. This report—the product of nine months of Satellite Sentinel Project and Enough Project research—traces the movements of the RSF across Sudan and exposes the civilian targeting that has become the hallmark of their activities. By connecting the Sudanese government’s own public statements with evidence from affected communities, the report lays out the case for the individual criminal responsibility of high-level Sudanese government officials for both the war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by the RSF.
