About Google Darfur
Since 2003 militias known as the Janjaweed, now known as RSF (Rapid Support Forces), under orders from the Government of Sudan, have killed over 200,000 civilians. Over 2.5 million have been forced into refugee camps. These numbers do not include the RSF victims in Libya or Yemen.
In a bid to secure their oil and mineral interests inside of Sudan and Chad, Many of the world's major governments pour weapons and money into the region and remain indifferent to the carnage, allowing the violence to spread further.
Frustrated by the situation, in February 2007, 2 North Americans traveled to Eastern Chad and teamed up with 2 Chadians. Google Darfur is the story we captured.
The work of Google Darfur has continued completely independent since 2007. Google Darfur, was entered into the International Criminal Court case against the president of Sudan, Omar Bashir, for crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide against the people of Darfur.
We have remained independent, owing allegiances to nothing but the truth
and we thank you for joining us in that pursuit!
