Past Participant John Prendergast Featured in the Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal recently featured past CWA participant John Prendergast in its Op-Ed section.  In his article titled Obama is still AWOL on Sudan, Prendergast draws attention to the imminent situation in Sudan. “…if the current U.S. policy gridlock remains, the next round of Sudanese bloodletting could be the worst yet.

Over 350,000 people have died in the Darfur genocide that began in 2003.  In January of 2011, southern Sudan will hold a referendum on whether to remain part of Sudan or recognize its own independence.  Prendergast’s article focuses on the actions of the U.S. government in maintaining peace in Sudan.  He says that it’s time for the Obama administration to “lay out a clear policy…potentially preventing a real war in Sudan.”

As co-founder of the Enough Project, an initiative to prevent genocide and crimes against humanity, Prendergast travels to Africa on peace-making initiatives and fact-finding missions several times a year.

Read the full Wall Street Journal article here and keep up on all his work and the efforts of the Enough Project at their website.
