DC and Seattle: Rally to Stop Genocide

Just noticed that David mentioned Darfest, a rally in Seattle to raise awareness about the situation in Darfur. The Seattle rally is scheduled for Thursday evening and as David explains, Darfest promises not only to explain what is happening in Darfur through lectures but will also convey the culture of Darfur through music, dance, and visual arts.

There will be a similar event in Washington, DC, on the National Mall on Saturday, April 30 from 2-4:30 PM. Speakers for the DC program include Representative Nancy Pelosi, George Clooney, Elie Wiesel, Paul Rusesabagina, whose story provided the subject of last year’s Hotel Rwanda, and Russell Simmons, among many others.

If you’re in the DC area, it looks like a good opportunity to learn more about the situation in Darfur and to petition President Bush to take further steps to end the genocide that is taking place there.
