    A Message From Danny Glover

    Message from Danny Glover,
    Actor, Activist and Chairman TransAfrica Forum Board

    I would like to ask you to take action to stop the genocide in Darfur.
    You might remember that I got arrested at the Sudanese Embassy in 2004
    protesting the on-going violence. We have now come to a tipping point,
    a critical moment both in terms of the genocide itself and the politics
    surrounding a resolution at the United Nations. In February, the U.S.
    will chair the UN Security Council and will have the opportunity to use
    this position of leadership to protect the people of Darfur by
    introducing a resolution authorizing a UN multinational peacekeeping operation.
    As we know, the Bush Administration is unlikely to work for justice in
    Africa without significant pressure from the public, especially from
    Americans of African descent.

    Please mark your calendar today for two important days of action.
    Please call the U.S. Mission at the UN on February 1st and please come out
    to Lafayette Park in Washington DC on February 2nd for a rally at the
    White House.

    Join Trans Africa Forum's close allies at Africa Action who are
    organizing these initiatives. This could be the most important moment in the
    campaign to stop genocide in Darfur.

    More information about the message for the Call-In Day for the 1st and
    the rally on the 2nd can be found at

    As Americans we have a unique power to assist the people of Darfur to
    protect themselves-please - join us on February 1st and 2nd.

    In struggle for peace with justice,

    Danny Glover

    P.S. From Africa Action - If you are in the New York area, please join
    us at noon on February 8th at the U.S. Mission to the UN, E. 45th
    Street between Third and Lexington Avenues for a rally and picket.
