SUDAN FREEDOM WALK: WALK TO END INJUSTICE, GENOCIDE AND MODERN SLAVERY Noon United nations
The Sudan Freedom Walk Campaign was initiated by Simon Deng, a Sudanese man captured into slavery as a child in Sudan. He later escaped bondage and now resides in New York City, but travels often to spread awareness about modern slavery and the atrocities facing the people of Sudan. The goal of Freedom Walk is to free the 40 million people in Sudan from the treacherous policies perpetrated by the Government of Kartoum. This Government has been party to human trafficking, torture, ethnic cleansing, genocide, international terrorism, as well as numerous other human rights violations and injustices.

"TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE BY STORM, Stop Genocide, Torture and Occupation."
The message goes on to explain:
"We will not allow the Slave Holders that Still Prevail in this Country to Rule us any longer . . . The Administration is Criminal and if they will not step down, we must storm in, show them how many of us do not accept a criminal government."
