Abyei's rich oil reserves and her rich Pasture Land, water make the region economically desirable to both Sudan and South Sudan. On 01/22/2020, a village Named 'Kolom', in the region of Abyei in the Republic of South Sudan, Came under a vicious attack perpetrated By combined forces of Sudanese Army and A Sudanese sponsored militant of Missiriya. The attack resulted in one of the most horrific massacres the world has ever seen. Many innocent civilians were gunned down and or burned alive. The attack killed more than 43 people and injured more than 24 people, many of whom are children and women. Abyei Is a Disputed Area between north-south Sudan. Abyei was Granted a special Administrative status" by the 2004 Protocol on the Resolution of the Abyei Conflict Known As Abyei Protocol) in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) that ended the Second Sudanese 21 years Civil War. It was the American people who pushed President Bashir to end the war and sign an agreement. It took a lot of lobbying by the Christians and all the peace-loving Americans, and it took a very considerable effort by the United States of America's government to achieve peace in Sudan. The U.S. drafted the text of the Abyei Protocol in march of 2004, under the leadership of General John Danforth, who was then-president George W. Bush's special envoy to Sudan. The SPLM, who is now the government of South Sudan, and the Government of Sudan eventually signed. In brief, the Protocol provides for special administrative status and place the security of the region in the hands of the United Nations interim force. Something they are now clearly falling to deliver to the people of Abyei The goal of the rally is to raise public awareness, to exert maximum pressure on the U.S Government to do something about the ongoing Ethnic cleansing against our people in the region of Abyei, (South Sudan). A country of which the United States of America spends billions of U.S taxpayer dollars to bring about her Existence. We Are planning to invite High-Level government officials to address the rally, and it will end by handing a letter of protest that outlines our grievances, to Both Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa.
