  • Tomorrow: Boston Rally Against Sudanese Genocide and Slavery

    Posted by Jonathan on June 8th, 2004 (All posts by )

    Katherine Wallace emails a heads-up about a June 9 rally (6:00 PM in Cambridge Common, near Harvard Square) to pressure the UN to help Sufi Muslims who are being persecuted by the Sudanese government. The presence of Kofi Annan, who is speaking at Harvard’s commencement, provides part of the rally’s rationale.

    More information is here.

    UPDATE: I just realized that I posted a bad link in the above paragraph. My apologies. I fixed the link, which leads to a good source of information about the anti-slavery movement (not just the rally).

      All those wacky anti-slavery protestors…don’t they have jobs?

    2. Jonathan Says:

      Note that the rally is at 6:00 PM.

      (I assume you were joking, but I don’t want anyone to be confused about the scheduling of the rally.)

      Rats. I’m working in Nashua today, and no camera. Let’s see what I can do.

      It’s amazing how little attention (not to mention action) the issue of slavery commands.

    4. Mitch Says:

      I didn’t make it. There were only about 150 people there and there was no coverage. However, the Globe published a letter co-authored by Francis Bok, a former Sudanese slave, author, and associate of the American Anti-Slavery Group.

      Mitch, thanks for the update.
