BASHIR REJECTS UN. Vigil Day #151 Sudan Embassy July 29.

Filed by Start Loving.

The Darfur Vigil returned to Round the Clock this past Monday maintained by Start Loving who returns to a base of operations for light calories, MP3 Player Electrons, and Internet mid afternoon for three hours each day. Saturday and Sunday are also spent at the base.

Sudan officially rejects revised UN text on Darfur force, Sudan Tribune

What does a world citizen, a Servant of The Almighty / Good / World Family / Brotherliness do in his 2nd year of vigil when:
  • 450,000 have been exterminated under Bashir's watch? Our watch? China's Watch? NGO's Watch? "Activists" watch?
  • 3 million displaced under Bashir's watch? Our watch? China's Watch? NGO's Watch? "Activists" watch?
  • Brother Bashir heaps desecration on desecration, inhumanity on inhumanity, lie on lie, deception on deception?
  • We-the-worlds-citizens heap hypocrisy on hypocrisy, lip service on lip service, excuse on excuse, inaction on inaction....

How does Start Loving serve the above? What does or do The Almighty / Goodness / Humanity / "Activist" brothers / brother Bashir / brother Moon / Save Darfur / Africa Action / STANDnow demand of me?

Darfur Vigil Day #146 Sudan Embassy

The vigil returned to "round the clock" yesterday. I anticipate that Sunday night through Saturday afternoon I'll be on the sidewalk in front of the Sudan Embassy DC except for approx 1pm - 4pm when I will go to the Washington Peace Center for MP3 Player electricity, water, Internet and calories.

We must pull out all of the stops, ALL OF THE STOPS to RESCUE AND RESTORE DARFUR, NOW.

Vigil for Darfur Day #141 Sudan Embassy DC

The best of times; the worst of times?

Have we ever been closer to the Rescue and Restore of Darfur? I don't think so:
  • Effective pressure on China bearing fruit
  • Powerful, humane leadership from France
  • al-Bashir acquiescing to France / US / UK / China pressure
  • "Lake Eire" being found under Darfur
  • The Elders being formed of Mandella, Tutu, Carter... and Darfur spoken of as a focus


Let's not take our eyes off the ball. In fact, let's step up efforts dramatically.

IF YOUR DEAREST WERE IN A DARFUR DEATH CAMP in this 5th year of genocide, when our token wrist bands, one day fasts, sporadic lobbying, etc. have been correctly read by Washington as lip service, WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO RESCUE AND RESTORE DARFUR - TO SAVE YOUR DEAREST? DO IT. DO IT NOW.

Personally, I don't know what is going on with my body. Literally I feel like I've forgotten how to walk. I'd have thought what with 9-12 hours per day marching for months now in front of the Sudan Embassy all the pain would be gone. Quite the opposite. I need to keep going with the Sudan Embassy Vigil for many, many more months. Mustn't quit until the Rescue and Restore is underway with certainty. I don't know how I can bear the pain in my feet, legs and hips much longer. How bad is the pain? Well, I was hit by a car this week, my head crushed the windshield, my body caved the hood, I was thrown back on the pavement with the tire stopping inches from my head, and that pain was nothing compared with the pain of each step I take most hours per day. Very frustrating.

Oh well. It is amazing what you can do out of Love. It isn't the pain I mind so much, as the worry that it will sideline me at this crucial juncture. Mustn't let that happen.
