One day you’re gonna wake up, America.

David Michael Green is a professor of political science at Hofstra University in New York. He is delighted to receive readers’ reactions to his articles ( ), but regrets that time constraints do not always allow him to respond.

05/04/07 “ICH”—- And, like every other one since last you can remember, it’s gonna be an ugly morning.

One day you’re gonna wake up and go to your lousy job with its lousy salary and non-existent benefits. You might even remember the good job you once had. Or that the government you once supported gave tax breaks to companies like the one that exported that good job of yours to the Third World (which is what they’re now starting to call your country). Or that that same government undermined the labor unions which fought to get you your good wages and benefits.

Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Here is something to make you smile, maybe.  This is what happens when believers of Jesus Christ debate ‘believers’ of Jesus Christ. You decide for yourself.

Won’t you sign the Divest for Darfur petition?

It’s only been two days since we launched our Divest for Darfur petition and already more than 57,000 people have added their names to this effort to cut off financial support for the genocide.

It’s not too late for you to get involved.

Click here to sign the petition calling on Fidelity Investments to divest from companies that help fund the genocide.

By withdrawing investments from companies that help finance the genocide, we can build economic pressure to end the atrocities.

That’s why we are calling on investment firms with the largest ties to Sudan to divest their holdings now, before more lives are lost.

Fidelity is a major holder of PetroChina, the Chinese oil company that is one of the biggest offenders in helping to fund the genocide in Darfur.

Despite complaints from concerned citizens and investors, Fidelity has not accepted responsibility for its role in investing in companies that fund the genocide in Darfur and has thus far refused to withdraw these investments.

Tell Fidelity the people of Darfur can’t afford to wait.  Click here to sign the petition asking them to cut their ties with companies that help fund the genocide.

While diplomacy is crucial, most international efforts have failed to get through to Sudan.

But money talks—Sudan has been very responsive to economic pressure in the past.  That is why we believe divestment could be highly effective in forcing Sudan to cooperate with the international community.

Divestment helped end apartheid in South Africa in the late 1980’s and it can help end genocide in Darfur in 2007.

Click here to demand that Fidelity do its part to help end the violence by divesting from companies that help fund the genocide.

Once you’ve signed, please forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to join you in helping to cut off funding by adding their names to the petition to Fidelity.

Thank you again for your commitment to helping the innocent people of Darfur.

Best regards,

David Rubenstein
Save Darfur Coalition

Keep talking about Sudan and the Darfur region.

Keep the Pressure On

Build the momentum from the Global Days for Darfur by telling the Bush Administration “No More Last Chances for Genocide.”

Send your message!

Last week, thousands of committed activists came together to demand peace and protection for the people of Darfur now.

There were more than 445 Global Days for Darfur events held in over 35 countries around the world.

From Stockholm to Dar es Salaam to Los Angeles, Darfur activists made sure world leaders got the message that time is running out for the people of Darfur.

It is this kind of extraordinary activism that inspired us to write a book together about the growing movement to end the crimes against humanity in Darfur, and how to prevent future Darfurs from unfolding.

Energy is high and global awareness about the need to act on Darfur is growing.

Will you help us build the momentum even more? Click here to tell the Bush Administration to stick to its deadline to implement - and enforce - tough sanctions against Sudan.

From a rally & candlelight vigil in Chicago to a divestment protest on Wall Street, activists turned out in droves to demand action on Darfur.

And with front-page stories in the Des Moines Register, San Francisco Chronicle, and The Australian, it would be hard for world leaders to avoid hearing the Global Days message loud and clear.

But, as you know, success for the people of Darfur cannot be measured by the number of rallies, the size of the crowds, or the prominence of the media coverage.

Success for the people of Darfur will be measured in lives saved, in rapes prevented, and in communities preserved and rebuilt.

The time for talk is over. What the people of Darfur need now is action.

Click here now to tell the Bush Administration “No More Last Chances for Genocide.”

Please forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to join you in calling for immediate action.

Not On Our WatchFor other ideas about things you can do and ways to get involved, take a look at our book, Not on Our Watch: The Mission to End Genocide in Darfur and Beyond.

In writing this book, our wish was that it would help inspire and inform this continuously growing movement as much as we were inspired and informed by the people who collectively created it. Click here to learn more or to purchase your copy now.

Thank you again for your commitment to this cause.

We’re grateful for your efforts and proud to stand with you until we return peace to Darfur.

In solidarity,
