September 21, 2009; International Day of Peace and World Day of Fasting


On Monday September 21, 2009, UN declared International Day of Peace, we ask you to join others worldwide to fast for Peace and Justice in Sudan.

WHAT: Water-only fast from midnight-midnight on Monday September 21, 2009. For those who are unable to fast water-only we encourage you to participate by eating refugee rations of 800 calories for the entire day.

WHO: It began April 27, with Mia Farrow’s 12-day hunger strike. Others, including Sir Richard Branson, Peter Gabriel, Maria Bello, Congressman Harold Payne, Senator Bill Frist, and many more, taking the baton, water-only fasting — a personal expression of outrage — a global community standing in solidarity with innocent civilians in extreme danger.

Those already committed to the September 21 fast include Don Cheadle, Mia Farrow, Sir Richard Branson, Pamela Omidyar, John Prendergast, Richard Rockefeller , Taylor Hanson, Shannon Sedgwick-Davis, James Michael, Oregon’s Secretary of State Bill Bradbury and many more from around the world. Over 300 people have already signed up on the Facebook Event!

JOIN: Send an email to join@fastdarfur.org that includes your NAME, and LOCATION.

ASK YOUR CONGRESSPERSON TO JOIN: Use this letter to invite your Congressional Representatives to Fast.

WHY: The situation in Sudan is urgent. Nearly 3 million Darfuris living in camps face the threat of rape and aid cut-offs; the country’s president remains wanted for war crimes and crimes against humanity; and a return to full-scale North-South civil war looms. The Obama administration and other world leaders must:

1. Lead a more effective and urgent peace process for Darfur

2. Build an international coalition for strict implementation of the North-South peace deal

3. Implement a policy that creates real consequences* for those who continue to attack civilians, block life-saving aid, undermine peace, and obstruct justice

Join us on September 21 for an International Day of Fasting for Peace and Justice in Sudan.
