Declaration of Genocide in Darfur

Approved Legislation - 108th Congress, 07 Septembre 2004

The House unanimously passed H.Con.Res.467 to declare atrocities occurring in Darfur “genocide.” In addition, it called upon the US to do the following:

· assume responsibility to act and stop genocide as mandated by the 1948 UN Genocide Convention;

· consider leading a multilateral or even unilateral intervention to stop violence in Darfur;

· impose sanctions, visa bans, and asset freezes on the Sudanese Congress and individual leaders of genocide in Darfur;

· establish a Darfur Resettlement, Rehabilitation, and Reconstruction Fund so that those driven off their land may return and begin to rebuild their communities.
