Darfur Darfur is located in western-south Sudan.
Genocide • Darfur is known for basically one thing Genocide.
• Since 2003 400,000 Darfur civilians have been killed by either genocide or these people that call themselves janjaweed AKA night riders.
• 40% of the children in Darfur are dying from lack of proper nutrition.
• If you look at Darfur from Google earth you can see burn marks where villages are supposed to be.
OIL• How this all started is when the southern part of Sudan found oil.
The Port • The south cant bring out any oil because the northern part of Sudan has the port.
The conflict• Because of this the north and the south of Sudan are fighting.
• But the north of Sudan has the janjaweed fighting with them. They go into villages at night and slaughter all the people in it.
The SolutionI think a good solution to this issue is to tell the north that you cant make any money off oil if you cant agree with the south. So you need to stop attacking them and maybe both the north and south will be rich in oil.
THE END• That is why Darfur is a big social issue.• If you want to know more about Darfur click here
