Activists will project giant images and video on to the Embassy of Chad of those affected by the genocide in Darfur, making it known that any government who welcomes Bashir is complicit in his crimes.
On Monday, the government of Chad is set to welcome Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir into their country for the fourth timesince a warrant was issued for his arrest by the International Criminal Court. Wanted for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity for the Darfur genocide, Bashir should be sitting before a judge, not a dinner table with world leaders.
Human rights activists will demand that the Government of Chad immediately rescind Bashir’s invitation or announce their intention to arrest him.
