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
