SIGN THEIR PETITION

"We, the Sudanese women in the Diaspora, write to express our grave concern over the mass rape of more than 200 women and young girls in Tabit village, North Darfur that occurred on October 31, 2014. We are deeply troubled by the fact that the overwhelming majority of the victims were elementary schoolgirls, some as young as eleven years old.  This horrendous act was committed by Sudanese soldiers from a nearby military garrison and has been confirmed by their force commander, who visited Tabit the following day and acknowledged the rape of the women and girls, along with the beatings and humiliation of the men. Despite this public admission, the government of Sudan has obstructed investigations and completely denies that the rape and beatings even occurred."
