Director of European-Sudanese Public Affairs Council (ESPAC)

Just when you think you are beginning to see the whole picture of what is going on in Sudan, you come across reports with completely opposite stories, ie the writings of Dr David Hoile, director of the European-Sudanese Public Affairs Council.

Dr Hoile sent his "Janjaweed Militia in Darfur" essay to Media Monitors Network, July 5 2004.

Note his work at ESPAC - "Working for Peace in Sudan"

And compare his writings with the following reports:

(1) Take a look at "QUANTIFYING GENOCIDE IN SOUTHERN SUDAN AND THE NUBA MOUNTAINS 1983-1998" report by Millard Burr, Ph.D. December 1998 [summary of report, is copied in next post here below].

(2) Read Dr Eric Reeves' report "Unreleased UN Report on Darfur: Human Rights Finds a ''Reign of Terror'' - regarding this important U.N. report "Situation of human rights in the Darfur region of the Sudan" dated May 3, 2004.

(3) Check out report "Southern Sudan: Ethnic Cleansing and Civilian Bombings Indicate Possible Genocide" by Madoka Morimoto & Marika Zirk.

(4) Scan list at southerners chronology and minorities at risk (MAR).

All of the above reports are freely available on the Internet - and must have been widely read by many people around the world.

Like Jim Moore says, you can't make this stuff up.
