Happening Now in Sudan
Omar al-Bashir has been the president of Sudan since 1993 (self-appointed), but assumed power in 1989 after he led a military coup to overthrow the sitting government. He has been indicted by the International Criminal Court on five counts of crimes against humanity (murder, extermination, forcible transfer, torture, and rape), two counts of war crimes, and three counts of genocide. He is an international war criminal who continues to bomb his own people in an active attempt to eliminate all non-Arab populations from Sudan.
In 2009, al-Bashir banned all humanitarian aid coming into Sudan, leaving his people starving, sick, dying, and subject to intensifying violence.
