I received an e-mail urging me to do this, which I of course did, but thought why not pass it on :)
Human Rights First has been calling for U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan to appoint a Special Envoy for Darfur. Secretary-General Annan’s term ends on December 31. We have only 16 days left. Click here to urge Secretary Annan to appoint an envoy for Darfur right now. http://www.hopefordarfur.org/
Many of you represented the victims in Darfur by signing our petition calling for this envoy. In November, our Executive Director Maureen Byrnes personally delivered the petition with more than 32,000 signatures to Mr. Annan.
We urge you to help us make one final concerted push – ask him to appoint someone of the highest international stature to focus solely on the crisis in Darfur. The Special Envoy would coordinate a joint global response to Darfur – by being firm with countries that are shielding the Sudanese government and by being an honest broker with all parties to the conflict.
Time is running out. Click here to tell Secretary Annan to appoint a Special Envoy to help resolve the crisis in Darfur.
