Candlelight vigil for Darfur Sudan

Last month, American blogger and law student John Fitzgerald attended a candlelight vigil in New York for Darfur and kindly wrote a post to share with us.

Yesterday, John emailed to say he would be attending the next vigil in New York, this coming Monday, and will ensure his camera works this time to take photos for posting here. John's bar exam is next month, here's wishing him all the best.

Chris at Explanada provides details of the vigil to be held 5.00 pm Monday at Dag Hammarskjold Park, UN Plaza.

All of us, anywhere in the world, can light a candle on Monday at 5.00 pm NYC time in memory of the two million Sudanese who have lost their lives, and stand in solidarity with the four million victims of rape, slavery, and displacement. Give meaning to "Never Again."
