Protest Postponed at Chad Embassy as Bashir Postpones Trip to Chad

“Bashir Watch” Action was Planned on Day Bashir Was to be Welcomed by Chad Despite Being Wanted for Genocide by the International Criminal Court  

A planned protest  against the anticipated arrival of Omar al-Bashir into Chad has been postponed after it was announced that the Sudanese President, wanted for genocide by the International Criminal Court,  has decided to delay his trip.  In a live, web-streamed action led by United to End Genocide, activists planned to 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. Chad was set to welcome Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir into their country for the fourth time since 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. The group has announced that it will continue to monitor Bashir’s planned movements and pressure any country that welcomes him despite the outstanding warrants for his arrest for genocide.   What: Creative Visual Protest: Public Video Display Where:  The Embassy of any country that welcomes Omar al-Bashir of Sudan. When:  Whenever he travels outside of Sudan to a country that welcomes and refuses to arrest him.
