HR 723

At the end of September, the African Union will withdraw its troops from the Darfur region of the Sudan. The UN has no plans to send troops into the region until January of 2007, and the US has yet to promise any involvment in the ongoing genocide.

Congress crafted a resolution to urge the President to send peacekeeping troops to the region — entitled HR 723, which has yet to make it to a vote. If you’re interested in showing your support for this bill, write your Congressman and urge him to co-sponsor the bill.
