Sudan: August 16, 2004


The government is running a disinformation campaign, in which is insists that it is disarming militias in Darfur, and no longer attacking civilians, when it is actually doing neither. Government supported Arab militias continue to roam Darfur, attacking non-Arab villages and driving the civilians out. The government refuses to accept peacekeepers from the African Union or the UN, and feels that it's Arab supporters in the UN, with the help of China and Russia, will prevent the UN from sending any troops in. There is still fear that European or American troops might intervene. Sudan insists that the West wants to steal its oil and gold.
