International Divestment Campaign Launched Today

That’s quite a sobering thought. It’s also a distinct possibility. Today, Aegis Trust and partners launch an international campaign for the divestment of funds, including your pension and your savings, that are invested in foreign companies whose revenues support the Sudanese Government. Adverts are appearing in the Guardian, New Statesman and Amnesty magazine in the UK, in Walrus and Le Devoir in Canada, in the Mail and Guardian in South Africa, and in L'Espresso in Italy over the next few days. You can find out more about what you can do to help at www.darfurdivestment.org

Safeguarding Civilains: Delivering on the responsibility to protect in Africa

31 May 2007. In September 2005, at a meeting of the United Nations in New York, the world’s leaders endorsed an international ‘responsibility to protect’: an obligation to act to protect civilians in the face of war crimes or genocide, where the government locally is perpetrating these abuses itself or is unable or unwilling to stop them. By David Mepham and Alexander Ramsbotham.
