Saving Darfur

Amnesty International and the Fur Cultural Revival will present Saving Darfur on Saturday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m., at Camden Hills Regional High School. The Fur Cultural Revival is a Portland-based organization of refugees from the Darfur region of western Sudan. Saving Darfur will include drumming, a short talk, and a 20 – minute documentary, as well as recommended actions the public can take in concert with Amnesty International's campaign to get U.N. peacekeepers on the ground in Darfur.
