Sudan Group Criticizes Obama on Human Rights Day
One human rights group criticized President Obama Tuesday for not doing enough to combat human rights abuses in Sudan.

President Obama is in South Africa honoring human rights champion Nelson Mandela today, but back in Washington, a leading Sudan advocacy group is criticizing Obama’s record on protecting Africans in danger.

“In 2007, Mr. Obama said that genocide is ‘a stain on our souls’ and promised, ‘As president of the United States I don’t intend to abandon people or turn a blind eye to slaughter.’ Yet, according to Act for Sudan in the fifth year of his Presidency, he continues to oversee a disastrous approach to the ongoing genocide in Sudan,” the group will say in a Tuesday press release, timed to coincide with the annual celebration of Human Rights Day. “This approach has failed to prevent the tragic loss of countless civilian lives and the mass displacement and starvation of countless more innocent people. According to the national alliance, President Obama should develop a new pro-democracy and civilian protection-oriented policy on Sudan.”

Two years after South Sudan declared its independence on July 9, 2011, the region is still turbulent. Violence in both Sudan and South Sudan is raging, particularly in the regions of Jonglei, Darfur, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile. Over 100,000 people have been driven from their homes so far this year in Jonglei alone.

Sudan advocacy groups have viewed Obama’s Sudan policy as too conciliatory to the regime of Omar al Bashir, who has been indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court. Despite appointing several Special Envoys for Sudan and South Sudan both before and after the 2011 separation of the two countries, these groups believe that Obama administration has failed to properly address the ongoing violence and atrocities perpetrated by the Sudanese regime.

“Over the years, Sudan’s President Bashir and the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) have learned that there are few or no real consequences for their actions, that there are no consequences for breaking commitments, and no action beyond condemnation in response to continuing and expanding mass atrocities and genocide,” Act for Sudan states in its official policy statement.
