Senator Bill Nelson

Florida Senator

716 Hart Senate Building Washington DC 20510


Dear Senator Nelson:

I am writing about the situation in Darfur, Sudan, where a conflict has claimed at least 250,000 lives. I applaud the actions you have taken to address this situation—providing support for the United Nations mission in Darfur and providing humanitarian aid.


But I am concerned as the situation in Darfur continues to deteriorate. Estimates show that at least 16,000 people are dying each month as a result of the conflict. More than two million people have been forced to flee their homes for largely unprotected, under-resourced camps. Though the United Nations has deployed ceasefire monitors, they have no mandate to actually protect these camps or the people still living in towns and villages in the region.


I urge you to show bold international leadership by increasing America’s diplomatic pressure on the Sudanese government, and by increasing our engagement at the UN and the AU on this issue. America has the responsibility to do all that it can to ensure that the people of Darfur are protected until a negotiated and just settlement to the conflict can be found. Therefore, I ask you to support a wider mandate for the AU to protect civilians in camps and villages. I also urge you to support the humanitarian needs of the people of Darfur as their situation will remain fragile.
