Cease-Fire in Darfur

In hopes of raising awareness about the reality of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan, Sam writes every Monday about a key issue in an attempt to stop the atrocity. Doing so may not bring about a wave of change, but it is a small ripple that represents the tide that needs turning.

Last week, I wrote about presidential hopeful Bill Richardson making a trip to Sudan to try to broker some sort of peace deal.

Well, it looks like it happened. Flying under the radar last Tuesday was this statement that the rebels and the Sudanese government were ready to begin (again) a discussion of peace. Both sides agreed to a 60-day cease fire to begin negotiating an agreement.

While this is a lot of talk, it is a sign of hope that this genocide will indeed come to an end soon. Like the peace deal of last May, this agreement is very tender and fragile and the smallest infraction by either party will undo some hard work.
