Save Darfur Coalition Call to Action

Got this today, thought I'd pass it on.

Dear David ,

Despite more than 61,000 Save Darfur Coalition activists calling on President Bush to take effective action to protect innocent civilians in Darfur two weeks ago, the White House continues to drag its feet on launching the desperately needed "Plan B."

Nearly two months have passed since the Sudanese government thumbed its nose at President Bush's January 1st deadline to cooperate with international peacekeeping efforts and it is past time to act.

The President's top advisors must guide him in taking the steps required to stop the violence in Darfur.

Please join us in urging Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to launch "Plan B" before more lives are lost.
Click here now to send a message asking the President's top advisors to take the tough measures needed to make Sudan cooperate with international efforts to end the violence.

The Sudanese government-sponsored genocide has already claimed up to 400,000 lives, displaced 2.5 million people and left more than 3.5 million men, women and children struggling to survive amid violence and starvation.

Without tough, coercive "Plan B" measures to accompany diplomacy, the international community's efforts to end the violence in Darfur are doomed to fail.

That is why we need your help to make sure the President's top advisors get the message ASAP.
Click here now to contact Secretaries Rice, Gates and Paulson about the urgent need to implement "Plan B" now.

Once you've signed the petition, please forward this email message to your friends and family and ask them to join you.

Thank you again for your support.

Best regards,

David Rubenstein
