Faithful urged to prod Clinton on Sudan

Catholic World News - May 04, 2012

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic Relief Services have issued an “action alert” urging Catholics to encourage Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to promote peace between Sudan and South Sudan.

“I urge you to maintain and intensify your ongoing efforts to protect the progress made through the Comprehensive Peace Agreement for Sudan,” the suggested e-mail to Clinton states.

“As you travel to China for high level meetings this week, please ensure that the Administration is engaged in every way possible with the governments of Sudan and South Sudan and with important partner countries and regional bodies to prevent a return to war, to end attacks on civilians, and to protect the basic rights of the Sudanese people, including the freedom of movement and access to humanitarian aid.”
