[Activism] The genocide in Darfur has not stopped. It's still there and it's still going on. Despite being a genocide which should get people's attention the crisis in Darfur seems to suffer from the problem that its so bad alot of people are tuning it out-- alot but not everyone.
This weekend the local group SaltLakeSavesDarfur is teaming up with SLC Amnesty International to put on a weekend fundraiser and education event. The Days of Darfur will include a documentary and panel discussion of the film The Devil Came on Horseback, Thursday at 7 pm at the SLC Library. Local restaurants Friday will donate proceeds from meals to charity efforts through the International Rescue Committee and Saturday a carwash, entertainment and information booths will be setup in Liberty Park.
