24 HOURS FOR DARFUR

A novel form of student protest:

400,000 civilians have died in Darfur since 2003. The genocidal campaign led by the government of Sudan the Janjaweed militia continues while the world stands by. It is time we demand that our elected officials redouble their efforts to bring security to the people of Darfur. 24 Hours for Darfur uses video advocacy to insist on action from national governments and international institutions. We will compile 24 hours of continuous footage of people from around the world demanding change – footage that we will then display on the steps of Congress and in front of the UN so that our leaders can no longer turn a blind eye to the devastation in Darfur.

Check it out (complete with abundant Eidelsons in front of the camera as well as behind the scenes). Submit your own video here.
