Genocide Ina genocide began in the Darfur region of Sudan. This has escalated to the mass slaughter ofpeople. This is why countries around the world should open up their eyes and help a country that is going through a genocide. The genocide is occurring in the western region of Sudan.
The area consists of about six million people from nearly tribes. Some of them are farmers, others nomads, all of them are Muslim. InGeneral Omar Bashir took control of Sudan by military coup. Soon after conflicts increased between African farmers and many nomadic Arab tribes.
The main reason the genocide started is because intwo Darfuri rebel movements were created. The Sudan Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement were created to inform the Sudanese government about the marginalization to put or keep someone in a powerless or unimportant position within a society of the area and the failure to protect sedentary people from attacks by nomads.
These militias attacked hundreds of villages throughout Darfur with help from the Sudanese army. Over villages were completely destroyed and millions of civilians were forced to abandon their homes.

If they were to open their eyes and see the various support groups the they could help fund they could make a difference in this world.
