Worthy cause of the day: “Chad: No Protection from Rape and Violence for Displaced Women and Girls in eastern Chad”

Greetings.

Please fill out the form “Chad: No Protection from Rape and Violence for Displaced Women and Girls in eastern Chad” and send a message to the UN Security Council to get off their collective butt and do something about the Sudanese refugee crisis in Chad.  Yes, expecting the UN Security Council to actually do something about protecting vulnerable people is like expecting to win the lottery, and I fully expect that all those political bigwigs who could have done something to stop the genocide in the Sudan several years down the road will lament the deaths of so many innocents and feign ignorance of what was happening, if not claim there was nothing they could do.  But politicians and bureaucrats are not invulnerable to public opinion, no matter how evil or brain-damagedly stupid they are, so please show them that public opinion is against the UN Security Council ignoring the problem, giving them one less excuse to do nothing.  Thank you.
