Physicians for Human right

Paris, July 13, 2006

Here is a very well informed site on the situation in Darfur from a US based association that does not hesitate to investigate whatever situation they consider worth investigating, be it in USA or elsewhere.
On top of reminding the status of genocide under international laws they also set up their own clear definition of genocide that can be usefull in studying the situation in Darfur.

"Record of achievement:
1-Shared the 1997 Nobel Prize for Peace as founding member of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines

2-Pioneered the use of the forensic sciences to provide evidence of government-sponsored killings and war crimes in El Salvador, Guatemala, Bosnia, Rwanda, Iraq, Chechnya, and Kosovo.
3-Sent over 100 investigative teams to locations in the United States and around the world.
Fought against torture by exposing practices all over the globe.
4-Gave voice to the thousands of Afghan women living under harsh Taliban rule and mobilized a campaign on their behalf.
5-Created the first health and human rights curricula for medical and public health schools.
Led the effort to assure unimpeded access to health care during conflicts and protect neutrality of health workers, hospitals, and clinics."

Worth visiting....
