The Issues

Not On Our Watch focuses on mass atrocities and gross violations of international human rights. We work in areas where global attention is minimal and the response from the international community remains muted. 

Since 2003, the crisis in Darfur has taken over 300,000 lives and forced over 2.5 million people from their homes. The United Nations has called the situation in Darfur the world's worst humanitarian disaster. The international community has failed to act, and Darfur continues to deteriorate. An increase in violence, combined with governmental inaction, has critically endangered humanitarian life-support systems, peacekeeping efforts, and millions of civilians.

Burma (also known as Myanmar) is governed by one of the most brutal military regimes in the world, led by Senior General Than Shwe. Under his rule, the Burmese military junta continues to perpetrate gross human rights violations against Burmese citizens and deny them basic freedoms. In addition to violently suppressing opposition forces through torture, rape, and execution, it is estimated that the military has destroyed over 3,200 tribal villages.
