From Enough blogs Fri Nov 30 2012, 18:16:00

Here at Enough, we often swap emails with interesting articles and feature stories that we come across in our favorite publications and on our favorite websites. We wanted to share some of these stories with you as part of our effort to keep you up to date on what you need to know in the world of anti-genocide and crimes against humanity work.

A new video from Nuba Reports, a team of citizen journalists covering the conflict in South Kordofan, shows in devastating detail the impact of the ongoing government air raids and fighting between Sudanese army and SPLA-N rebels that have forced the remaining Nuba residents into the mountains seeking shelter under the rock formations. "My people who died, I will tell you frankly no one was sick. They were just hungry," says a father who lost three of his five children during the ongoing crisis.

Just before Thanksgiving, Sudan activist Joan Hecht penned this letter to President Obama calling on him to direct attention to the humanitarian crises in Sudan, particularly the suffering in the Nuba Mountains, during his next term. She writes:

Under your watch, Mr. President, thousands of innocent men, women and children have needlessly lost their homes, lives, and all basic human rights granted them under international law. [...] I'm asking you to take the required action and leadership that you spoke of in your campaign that will show who we are as a nation and as a people.
