The UK Today on Sudan

On May 4 Clive at The UK Today wrote "Sudan - A British Angle" and on May 12 posted an update.

Today the Sudan blog, Passion of the Present out of Harvard in Boston, featured Clive's suggestions in their main headline post "Calling London".

Clive suggested we keep pushing our MPs to support the two Early Day Motions he mentioned: EDM 1051 on the Sudan (78 signatures - now 85) and EDM 293 on Darfur, Western Sudan (42 signatures - now 43). He writes:

"If your MP feels he can only support one of the motions (for whatever reason) then 1051 is the one to sign. Whilst there is no guarantee that the motion will be debated, the more signatures that can be garnered the better and we should be aiming for 300+. So if you haven't already done so, please use the Fax Or Email Your MP link to give your encouragement. And above all - don't forget that in the current global situation we are bombarded daily with shocking stories and it is easy to lose sight of the human tragedies."
