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:
