STATEMENT

Joint Statement on Sudan With Members of Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan

July 23, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, ten years after the date Congress declared a genocide in Darfur, the co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan and the co-chairs of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission issued the following statement:

“Ten years after Congress declared a genocide in Darfur, we are disheartened to once again read reports of indiscriminate violence against civilians by Omar Bashir’s regime in Sudan. Though the international community’s attention is currently focused on events elsewhere in the world, we remain concerned about the welfare of innocent lives and remain committed to supporting sustainable peace in Sudan and the region. Hundreds of thousands of lives are at risk in Sudan while a brutal conflict now rages in South Sudan. The prospect of famine and more violence is staring us in the eyes. A decade after the world stood up for human rights and dignity, we once again call on the U.S. to be a leader in support of the cause of peace in both Sudan and South Sudan.”

Members of the Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan and co-chairs of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission who issued the statement are:

Michael McCaul (R-TX): co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan
Michael Capuano (D-MA): co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan
Frank Wolf (R-VA): co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan and co-chair of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission
Barbara Lee (D-CA): co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Sudan and South Sudan
James McGovern (D-MA): co-chair of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission
