On January 9th, 2011 a referendum will determine whether Southern Sudan should remain a part of Sudan. 80% of Sudan's oil fields are in the south, making it a prime battleground to displace the indigenous people. Both North and South are preparing for war, leaving innocent people at grave risk of major human rights violations. The last civil war between North and South – in which Emmanuel Jal fought as a child soldier – claimed over 2 million lives (including that of Emmanuel’s own mother). Take Action.
The time to prevent another genocide is now. The single We Want Peace is a call for peace, protection and justice for all in Sudan and also for an end to conflicts affecting innocent people all around the world.
