Darfur Trembles

Meanwhile, somewhere on planet Earth, people are suffering. The UN is involved in narcissistic proceedings, meaningless proclamations and worse. Meanwhile, people are going to be killed and the UN is just going to let it happen. Again. Something has to change.

Lydia Plygreen reports:

Death is no stranger here. Malaria and diarrhea course through the camp, picking off children first, then the old. There are no doctors or nurses or medicine. There is no clean water. There are no toilets or latrines. And yet the conflict, unchecked even by the presence of the African peacekeeping force, drives more people from their homes into the camp each day.
