South Sudan and Sudan; news roundup about the complex, intertwined situation

In 2012, I wrote about Al-Bashir: Sudan: divide and rule, the winning strategy.

Benefit of the doubt for Strauss-Kahn, not for Troy Davis?

Everyone now knows Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was accused by Nafissatou Diallo, a hotel maid in New York, of sexual assault. Three months after Strauss-Kahn was arrested, prosecutors dismissed all charges against him, stating that the Manhattan maid who accused him of sexual assault had told so many lies about her past that her story could no longer be ...

U.N. probes absences amid Sudan clashes. Since Northern Sudanese forces seized Abyei, many rightfully think northern and southern fighting over Abyei could reignite a full blown war in #Sudan.

da-eYe will go barefoot against poverty on Dec.10, will you?



I have been supporting Every Human Has Rights Campaigns since 2008. It started with the ’60 Signers for the 60th Anniversary Initiative’ I launched on November 24, 2008. My first post about it explained why I decided to ‘go public’ by creating an original piece of art for the campaign. Six months after that, the 60 Signers for the ... More
