Enough Project: New Oped – The Sudan Sanctions Must Stay

In U.S. News & World Report, Enough’s John Prendergast and Ian Schwab highlight a recent attack on peaceful protesters in Darfur and a pattern of persecution of religious minorities throughout the country that includes the demolition of churches and the arrest and detention of church leaders.

They argue that if this is how the Sudanese regime acts during a period of intense scrutiny “as the Bashir regime is engaged in a full-court press to lift long-standing U.S. sanctions..(w)e can only imagine what the Khartoum regime will do if it gets its way on the sanctions and the U.S. loses its most significant point of leverage.” They urge U.S. officials to remember that “when the spotlight is off, as the people of Darfur and South Sudan know all too well, the prospects for those whom the Sudan government has in its crosshairs is bleak.”
