EDM | Situation Of The Nuba People

Posted on: 5th July 2011

Andrew George MP  has signed EDM number 1953 in 2010-11, proposed by John McDonnell on 20/06/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House expresses its deep concern at the attacks by Sudanese armed forces and allied militias moving heavy artillery and aerial bombardment indiscriminately to destroy towns and villages in the Nuba mountains, causing the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people who are now living in appalling conditions without food, water and shelter; and urges the Government to act urgently to mobilise the international community to exert pressure on the Sudanese government to halt the bombardment and the fighting and killing of civilians, and to allow access to international agencies to deliver humanitarian aid to the civilian population and to assist the displaced Nuba people to return to their homes and villages.
