Gentle Genocide

Mark Fiore’s latest animation is titled “Gentle Genocide.” It’s an anguished commentary on the genocide in Darfur, which has already claimed more lives than last year’s Tsunami. (Darfur count=400,000.) The tragedy unfolds while we are distracted by other more ‘interesting’ news stories.

At the end of the animation CD8 gets a special mention—makes a fellow proud—for CD8’s Congressman Jim Kolbe’s participation in cutting 50 million dollars from African Union Funding. The money would have funded more peace keepers.
