Members of Parliament and other public figures will meet with the Anglican Archbishop of Sudan this afternoon (11 January 2010), at a meeting to discuss peace, war, faith and the future of his troubled country.
A group of international aid agencies has warned of renewed conflict in southern Sudan if urgent international action is not taken to bolster a five-year-old peace agreement that ended a two-decade civil war.
The UK must take urgent and decisive action to reinvigorate the peace processes in Sudan, says Giles Fraser. Only with real international leadership can we hope to realise our commitment to protect the dignity of human life in Sudan.
A day of action including a march for Sudan has taken place with backing from the Archbishop of Canterbury who said there was now an 'urgency' over disarmament and implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).
Anglican church leaders from across Africa have sent a petition to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown appealing for his government’s assistance in ending the brutal attacks by the so-called Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
