Some responses from bloggers [more will appear here, if and when received]

Global Voices Online points to call for bloggers around the world to link to Genocide Intervention Network (GI-Net).

The White African asks Sudan: Will it Ever End?

About Mr Bolton not having time to listen to the latest briefing, as he is so busy actually doing something about the atrocities, Contango says it's time to act and links to GI-Net.

Thanks to Bill Wallo for writing And Now for the Darfur Reminder and linking to GI-Net.

Kirkland at The Ruth Group links to GI-Net and STAND [note their super Sponsor-a-Camp Initiative]

The author of Uveal Blues blog, an ex-USA-expat ophthalmologist with a strong interest in international healthcare, links to GI-Net.

Luke writes More Sudan at DSTPFW blog, links to GI-Net and ICISS Report: International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty - cross posted at A Cloud In Trousers.

Ex-Liberal Nightfighter rightly hollers SUDAN IS DESCENDING INTO CHAOS....ONCE AGAIN!

American sailor Eddie links to GI-Net in a round up of blog entries he's selected for this month's spotlight on Darfur. Michelle Malkin links to Eddie's post.

Bill, an American blogger in Germany, links to GI-Net but says he can't say he would support such an approach vs. pressuring UN member countries to live up to their responsibilities. [Hey Bill, China and Russia are blocking action on Sudan. The greater the number of members/links/donations by private citizens around the world, the more politicians will listen up and take note]

Tim co-authors group blog Hyscience with some R&D scientists and tells readers everything is out of control in Darfur.

It breaks Catez' heart to see only weeks to save Darfur and says "Lord have mercy on them, and us." [Amen]

Hi Chris, you make me laugh how you pop up here out of the blue every few months with your greetings from Germany. If I hadn't seen your blogs, I would think you were spam!

Please let us know if you, or your friends, make a Fasting for Darfur T-shirt like the one in the photo here - see the flickr link that shows how the slogan was painted.

If you blog a photo wearing it, I'll feature it here at Sudan Watch and be sure to caption it with warm greetings to Chris from Germany Bottrop!!

Dear fasting peacekeeper with African Union Mission in Darfur,

Thank you for that. Much appreciated.

The world is watching your great work and diplomacy.

You are superb ambassadors of your country.

And all deserve medals.

God bless you all and keep you safe and well.
