Human Rights Torch Relay
On the 25th of October 2007 the Darfur Australia Network in Sydney participated in the Global Human Rights Torch Relay, organised in protest of the Olympic Games to be held in China in 2008. The event was intended to highlight the human rights abuses committed by the Chinese government, both within their own country and abroad. Because China has been one of the most irresponsible international actors in the Darfur crisis, we joined together with other groups to register our concern.
Adam Khamis, a member of DAN and of the Darfuri community in Sydney, ran a leg with the Olympic torch and made us all proud!
