MEETING WITH DARFUR REFUGEES






















Met today with refugees from Darfur, at a get together at the Park Strip in Anchorage. Their stories are remarkable. It's a miracle any of them survived the ongoing genocide in Darfur. Think we have problems in the USA? Think again!

I was able to get Governor Palin's bill passed out of my House State Affairs Committee to divest Alaska investments in Darfur. The US Congress has declared a genocide in Darfur, so did former President Bush, and President Obama when he was in the US Senate. The bill resides now in the House Finance Committee where, hopefully, it'll receive a hearing next session. I have my own Darfur investment bill, but have given priority to the governor's bill.

Fellowship with the Darfurians included sharing aseeda, topped with beef and sauce. Rep. Pete Peterson joined in our meeting.
