Darfur: Until When?


      In an escalation of the Darfurian Crisis, the warring armed factions, in Darfur, announced that the Sudanese Government attacked their strongholds in the Northern part of the province.  This attack led to the death of tens of civilians.  The governmental mobilization of attacks occurred few days before the launching of the Settlement Initiative and National Consensus that was supposed to take place, which was to be soon launched by the Sudanese President, Omar Hassan Ahmed Al Bachir.

            The declarations made by the leaders of three armed factions stated that the army, using four helicopters, 60 trucks loaded with soldiers, and backed up by hundreds of armed militia on  horses, attacked the areas of 'Be'ir Maza' and 'Deesa', north f the city 'Katm' in the province of Darfur.  This attack led to the killing of tens of civilians as well as fighters of the above mentioned factions.  The Sudanese Army did not release any comments, up till now, concerning the mentioned accusations.

            The Arab Program for Human Rights Activists expresses its deep concern regarding the deteriorating conditions in the province of Darfur, which maximizes the extent of the suffering of civilians, who are caught up in the cross fires of the government and the rebels.

            We demand the Sudanese Government and all concerned parties to promptly cease fire to protect innocent civilian lives from the catastrophes of the raging war in the province; this war represents a human calamity on all levels and ignores all conventions that aspire to affect humane rights.

            The residents of the province believe that the best solution is facilitate the return of refugees and displaced people to their home towns and villages, and to compensate them.  The Arab Program also focuses on the fact that the government should make its utmost effort to calm down the situation and to work on improving the living conditions of the Darfurians.

            We call on all civil organizations and institutions, working in the field of human rights to unite together for the purpose of saving human lives in Darfur and to recognize their rights to live safely and peacefully.

دارفور إلى متى ؟!


       فى تصاعد لأزمة دارفور أعلنت الفصائل المسلحة بدارفور أن الحكومه السودانيه قد قامت بمهاجمة مواقعهم فى  شمال الإقليم مما أدى إلى مقتل العديد من المدنيين وجاء تحرك الحكومه قبل أيام من إطلاق مبادرة التسويه والمصالحه الوطنية والتى من المقرر أن يطلقها الرئيس السوداني عمر حسن أحمد البشير قريباً.

          وجاء في تصريحات وردت على لسان زعماء ثلاث جماعات مسلحة إن الجيش، مستخدماً أربع مروحيات وستين سيارة محملة بالجنود تساندها ميليشيا على متن مئات الخيول، هاجم منطقتي بئر مزة وديسا في شمال مدينة كتم في ولاية شمال دارفور، ما أوقع عشرات الضحايا من المدنيين ومن مقاتليهم، ولم يعلق الجيش السوداني حتى الآن على الاتهامات الوارده.

          واذ يبدي البرنامج العربي لنشطاء حقوق الانسان استياءه البالغ مما اّلت إليه الأحوال فى إقليم دارفور والتى تزيد من حجم معاناة المدنيين الضائعين بين نيران الحكومة والمتمردين.

          نطالب الحكومة السودانية وجميع الأطراف المعنية بوقف شامل لإطلاق النار حفاظاً على حياة المدنيين الابرياء من ويلات الحرب الدائرة في الإقليم والتي تمثل كارثة إنسانية على كافة الأصعده وتضرب بجميع الاتفاقيات التي تهدف إلى تقرير الحق الإنساني عرض الحائط.

          وكما يرى أهالي الإقليم أن الحل الأمثل هو إعادة النازحين واللاجئين إلى ديارهم وتعويضهم، يرى البرنامج العربى أن الحكومه يجب أن تسعى جاهدة إلى تهدئة الأوضاع والعمل على تحسين أحوال سكان دارفور.

          ونناشد جميع المنظمات والمؤسسات المدنية العاملة فى مجال حقوق الإنسان بالتكاتف سوياً من أجل إنقاذ إنسان دارفور وإقرار حقه كاملا فى العيش بأمن وسلام.
