Chad: July 26, 2004



More Sudanese refugees are crossing the border into Chad. There may be as many as 200,000 refugees in Chad now, and many of them appear to be Sudanese rebels, or their families. The Sudanese rebels are, quite naturally, angry over the hundreds of villages that have been emptied by Arab Sudanese gunmen. The rebels see the refugee camps as part of a plot to let the Arab Sudanese keep the land they have stolen. As a result, Sudanese rebels in Chad have been attacking refugee camp workers, and this has brought in the Chadian army to restore order. Several Sudanese refugees have been killed in these skirmishes, and dozens arrested. The violence is not widespread, but it is growing, as more refugees move into Chad.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
