From the Save Darfur Coalition:
Last week, Senators Joe Biden and Dick Lugar introduced a new congressional resolution calling for the UN Security Council to authorize the immediate deployment of a strong UN/AU peacekeeping mission to Darfur with a tough mandate to protect civilians.
But so far only 13 senators have signed on to this critical resolution!
The UN Security Council is debating the deployment of a peacekeeping force this week. We need much broader Senate support by this Friday in order to send a firm message to the UN.
By passing this resolution, the United States can increase pressure on other members of the UN Security Council to get serious on peacekeeping in Darfur.
