"Never Again": Stop the Killing in Darfur

To the Right Honourable Stephen Harper,Prime Minister of Canada, and to the Honourable Peter McKay, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade When the world saw the atrocities committed during the Holocaust, we swore we would never let it happen again. Then came Rwanda and Bosnia, and we swore "never again". Those three events murdered over 7 million people in the 20th Century. Now it is happening again, this time in the Darfur Region of Southwestern Sudan. This is the first genocide of the 21st Century, and it must stop. Over 400 000 people have been killed and 2 million have been displaced from their homes. How many human beings have to die before stopping it becomes a "worthwhile cause" How many times do we have to say "Never Again" before something is done By signing this petition we request that Canada play a larger role in international aggreements and push for UN resolutions that would stop this mass murder. Say what you mean and mean what you say- Never Again.

The outcomes of these three genocides claimed the lives of over 7 million people. Almost 12 million people all over the world have died from various acts of genocide in the 20th century, and this startling number doesn't include the 6 million lives that were taken during the Holocaust. How many lives must be destroyed or taken before we decide to help How many innocent lives are enough -Are we doomed to repeat history or, can we stop now Has the value of human lives diminished to absolutely nothing
