SLM/A Open letter to the World on Darfur Peace Agreement
" ... we are hesitant to sign a peace treaty that drafted by the African Union on 1 May 2006. We believe that to reach a comprehensive peace agreement, we need an autonomous region that shall unify Darfur and carry more political weight than the current existing three states. Also, we require a fair representation that shall realize a third vice president, from Darfur. Compensation is crucial for our victimized people. So, individual victims of genocide should be compensated.
Finally, we ask for guarantees that those who have been displaced by government forces and its Janjaweed militias will be safe when they return back to their homes and guarantees that the government will disarm its militias that have been unleashed on our civilian population in Darfur."
