More Rape In Darfur

[Media Source*]

"I've lost my future now. No man will come to marry me," she said looking at the floor and shifting uncomfortably on her bed in the tiny straw hut which is now her home.

She fled a government attack on her town on Thabit more than a year ago and now lives in the patchwork of plastic covered shelters that is Zam Zam displaced camp, southeast of the capital of North Darfur state El-Fasher.

Her attackers (may they be caught and killed) not only raped her, but beat this woman as well and had the audacity to give her some money to wash herself off! Darfuri, along with her friend were out collecting soldiers when they were approached by the Sudanese Army. Unfortunately the African Union is unable to provide protection for women in the region and the United Nations is unwilling. Perhaps NATO forces can be sent in but in either case the situation is not getting better by the day.

The day after the rape, residents said the entire camp demonstrated, demanding that no government soldiers come into the camp.

Perhaps one of them could set up a blog site and help the world remember that these atrocities are still going on. If enough attention was addressed to this situation, the American government might be able to press this internationally and threaten air attacks against Sudan if this type of situation does not end. If the African Union is willing to enter the area, then let the world support them with fire power. How long does the international body have to debate issues like this while people suffer around the world?
