A Voice for Darfur

Another week has passed and still the international community does little constructive to stop the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. But we won’t stop writing about it. And we won’t stop urging action.

Today, The Coalition for Darfur profiles a man who has made it is mission to alert the world to the crimes in Darfur. For two years, Smith College literature professor Eric Reeves has been writing weekly updates and analysis of the situation, providing a voice when few were speaking. From the beginning, he has called this a genocide and his warnings that violence would only increase have proved horribly true.

The Yellow Line wishes there were more people like Eric Reeves. That more people would listen. That the international community would act and act now.

We also offer our thoughts and prayers to Reeves as he battles leukemia. His work has been invaluable.
