SUDAN: Lingering uncertainties over North-South truce

In 2005, the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) brokered a power sharing government, articulated a roadmap for Sudan’s recovery, and ended two decades of civil war.  However four years after the signing, full implemetation has yet to be realized.  Significant challenges including elections, border demarcation, and demobilisation remain, according to a recent IRIN article.  Despite these obstacles the article states that,

“Local leaders in Southern Sudan say relative calm has allowed them to begin to focus on health, education, and other social services and meeting the resettlement needs of returnees.”

While progress has been made in Sudan, it is clear that considerable challenges and lingering uncertainties will exist until the CPA is fully implemented.

    Obama’s change.org has an internet-voting mechanism, and one of the things you can vote on is a call to End the Genocide in Darfur: http://www.change.org/ideas/view/end_the_genocide_in_darfur

    The language of the call to action sounds a little bit aggressive. Can you provide advice regarding the wording on their website and let us know if we should support it or not from MCC’s perspective?
