Good news - and thank you!On September 27, the U.S.
Senate passed Resolution 660 by unanimous consent; the resolution calls
on the UN Security Council to stop the flow of weapons into Darfur
by expanding the current UN arms embargo to all of Sudan. Our activists sent
more than 13,000 actions to Congressional members urging passage of this resolution.
The resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives has not yet passed - please
your Member of Congress now!
