Sunday Roundup on Sudan and South Kordofan

Sunday Roundup is a rendezvous on Max Dana’s Blog. It sounds like our weekly Friday Digest which Max said it inspired her but we have to admit her news roundup is far more detailed than ours! You can also read this post on Max Dana’s Blog. When will international community take action? This is the question asked on Twitter by Susan Morgan, co-founder and the Director of Communications for Investors Against Genocide (I mention them here). ...


The Hope for Darfur – Justice in Sudan Rally

On this post last year we announced The Hope for Darfur – Justice in Sudan March in Washington, sponsored  by The Darfur Interfaith Network. This week-end  the event is back and will be on Sunday, May 15, 2011, starting at the Metropolitan AME Church, 1518 M Street, N.W. and will proceed to the White House at Lafayette Park. This year’s message is: We encourage the U.S, along with the international community, to renew and strengthen the ...


Sunday Roundup: Free Revok, Chernobyl, SETI…

Sunday Roundup is a rendezvous on Max Dana’s Blog. It sounds like our weekly Friday Digest which Max said it inspired her but we have to admit her news roundup is far more detailed than ours! You can also read this post on Max Dana’s Blog. “ For once (kind of) I will start with some graffiti news. This may not be the biggest news of the week for most of you but it is for any #Graffiti art fan. ‘Revok, one of Los Angeles’ ...


Sunday Roundup: Graffiti, Congo, Sudan, J. Stiglitz, J. Silva

Sunday Roundup is not a new rendezvous on the Sama Gazette but it is one on Max Dana’s Blog. Last Sunday she started this new series of posts about what caught her attention during the week. It sounds like our weekly Friday Digest which Max said it inspired her but we have to admit her news roundup is far more detailed than ours. We still have to learn a lot from her, we know that! So we decided to cross post it here. You can also read this post on ...

The Sama Gazette: First Anniversary!

Today is our first anniversary. The Sama Gazette was launched on July 28th, 2009: The Sama Gazette is now online… Time passes so quickly! During this first year, we shared with you what caught our attention, what we liked and the organizations and campaigns we support. Our first supporters are our valued Sama Readers who from the beginning of this great adventure, post comments, send emails and read us everyday. Many of them even actively support ...


Conflict minerals: the bloody Pandora’s Box…

Conflict minerals are nothing new (The (new) blood diamonds: it ain’t a movie…) but last week was a landmark week for everyone supporting the Enough Project campaign. Max Dana, who supports the campaign from the outset, posted on her blog a few days ago about the situation concerning conflict minerals, her hopes but also her concerns. An interesting point of view on the solutions being offered and the expected results. “ I usually don’t wear ...


Conflict Minerals: Join Enough Project in Washington!

One of our goal at the Sama Gazette (if not our goal number one) is to raise awareness of the plights facing many people around the world: human rights issues, social, hunger and environmental issues, starvation and poverty. We hope our support is contributing to mobilize people, as we have already seen positive results among our readers who are actively supporting campaigns and joined several meetings, in France and in the United States. From RAISE ...


The power of carrot and stick: reductio ad absurdum?

This week-end we had a lively discussion at the Sama Gazette about why the Obama administration but also other administrations in Europe seem to have forgotten their promises concerning Darfur. Two articles published last week originated this discussion : an article/op-ed posted on USA Today by John Prendergast: U.S. must help stop Sudan’s slow-motion war and The value of sticks and carrots for Sudan published on Enough Project website. Many ...


Change the Equation for Congo: Intel, Nintendo, RIM…

In April, we published an article about the new campaign launched by Enough Project: Change the Equation for Congo: Just 5 minutes for 5 days. Many Sama Readerscommented about it and took action by sending an email to their Representative; a few days later, we mentioned the campaign again in: Friday Digest: Congo campaign/Zimbabwe/Sudan/iPad… We support this campaign on the Sama Gazette because we think it’s important we buy conflict-free cell ...
