There will be a rally taking place this Sunday in Central park at 72nd organized by NotNowNotEver an innovative group Spearheaded by Yeshiva University students, involving students from dozens of schools an organizations.
The purpose of the rally is to protest the genocide currently taking place in the Darfur region of the Sudan. The government there has enlisted armed men – Janjaweed – to ransack the country and systematically rape, murder and torture its black inhabitants. Based on eye witness accounts alone they estimate that around 400,000 have been killed, and 10,000 die a month in the DP camps.
On Thursday of this week the Jewish community will commemorate the Holocaust, an attempted genocide of monstrous scale just over half a century ago. One outstanding message that Holocaust survivors, liberators and educators all attempt to convey is “Never Again.” Never again should other nations of the world stand idly by while one nation, one people, suffers a cruel torturous fate.
