Chad: Issue Press Releases And Hope For The Best


November 30, 2010: With 20 percent of the population in refugee camps (as a result of tribal and political fighting), the government refuses to provide adequate protection from bandits and rebels. With the UN peacekeepers moving out (by the end of the year), at government request, the foreign NGOs are complaining to everyone that food and other aid cannot get to the refugee camps, especially those along the Sudanese and CAR  (Central African Republic) without some armed protection.

November 24, 2010:  In CAR, CPJP rebels attacked the town of Birao, near the Sudan and Chad borders. The UN complained about the violence, but with UN peacekeepers withdrawing, there's not much to be done except issue press releases and hope for the best.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  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.
