Take Action Now
It’s amazing that humanity finally has an International Criminal Court (ICC) that can indict a sitting head of state, as ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo recently did when he asked ICC judges to issue an arrest warrant for President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan, charging him with war crimes and genocide in Darfur. Now let’s press our leaders to make sure that they cooperate with the ICC to fulfill its mandate to prosecute perpetrators of crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocide.
As the IJCentral network builds, our collective voice will become a way to press political leaders to fulfill the mandate of the ICC (and regional courts) to bring perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide to justice. All IJCentral members will receive periodic updates on crucial decisions pending before the UN Security Council, or rogue actions by governments and militias, and join in mass petitions to demand that justice be served when mass atrocities are committed.
We also recommend that you link to our strategic partner organizations listed in the sidebar, all of which have robust action programs in support of international justice and a world governed by the rule of law.
