Sudanese Struggle to Survive Endless Bombings Aimed to Quell RebelsLEWERE, Sudan — Fatima Ramadan, mother of six, froze, her eyes shooting up to the sky.“Antonov!” she yelled.Little girls threw down the pebbles they were playing with. Toddlers, sensing danger, started to wail. About two dozen people grabbed the young and dashed up the mountainside into a cave. It was hot and dark inside, and the children’s eyes were wide with fear.“I don’t like this place,” said Kaka, a 10-year-old girl.Nobody does. And yet thousands of people live like this.By JEFFREY GETTLEMANPublished: July 3, 2011

LEWERE, Sudan — Children with shrapnel wounds lie on metal hospital cots. Thousands of others have been huddling in caves and stony riverbeds, fleeing the fighter jets and bombers prowling the skies. Villages are empty, fields unplowed. At the faintest buzz of a plane, people scatter into the bush, in a panic.June 30, 2011

Report from Nuba mountains

Children have enough. Lots of crying, lots of questions. Non stop ready for run. MiGs are not Antonovs from the last war in Nuba Mountains (1985 - 2001), they cross the sky over the valley in a couple of seconds. Yesterday we ran five times - never jumped in safety before they are on the other side of the sky. Tomo KrižnarIn the womb of mother Earth with her children, on 25. june 2011

Fierce new fighting along Sudan's volatile north-south divide is raising deep concern for the safety of the Nuba people, the forgotten victims of the country's long-running civil war who are once again under attack by government forces and militias.The fighting has significantly increased the chances that the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) that ended the civil war six years ago will collapse, reigniting a north-south war and ending all hopes of peaceful partition when oil-rich South Sudan formally declares itself independent on 9 July.Julie Flint, Saturday 18 June 2011

Tomo poroča o razmerah v Nubskem gorovju

There is a strong feeling, that Nuba are facing same siege as described so sistematically in Alex de Waal book »Facing genocid«. Goods are not coming in the mountains from the North and there is no supply from the South. Air supply after last bombardments is too dangerous to most of NGOs helping Nuba before. They evacuated their staff. Two weeks ago war started. South betreyed Nuba, everybody is saing that, so Nuba can not excpect to be supplied from South even so little as they were in the last war.Tomo Križnar, 18. junij 2011

Brutality continues for people of Jebel Marra, Darfur

Brutality continues for people of Jebel Marra, Darfur

June 3, 2011 — Today, Darfur is old news. Complex, seemingly irresolvable problems, fractured armed movements and the failure of the uprising against the government have silenced the outcry over what is happening in the region. Even today, the arrest of Ratko Mladi?, the architect of the Srebrenica massacre seems to generate little reflection about what power can do to innocent people, when in the hands of an amoral maniac. In Jebel Marra people do not need to be told. They know. They know today and have known for the last ten years what it means to be on the receiving end of an amoral government and the self-interested behavior of the international community. More
