London, Sudan, Cuba

Two upcoming events in London:


Protect Darfur Rally

From www.protectdarfur.org:

"We need your support for the Protect Darfur Rally - taking place outside 10 Downing Street, 12.30pm, Sunday 15 May.

At the very start of its third term, it's vital to put Government on notice that aid is not enough. And we can't leave Darfur's survivors to protest alone. The Government needs to know that when genocide happens, we all care about it - and we'll hold it to
its promises to protect.

This is a matter of life and death. 400,000 deaths since 2003. With 500 more lives
lost every day. That means one African in Darfur is murdered every three minutes - just because they're African."



Cuba

"MEDECINS DU MONDE UK is taking part in the first free CARNIVAL DE CUBA, organised by Cubana Bar & Restaurant as part of the Coin Street Festival 2005.
Dates: Saturday 4 & Sunday 5 June Time: 2.00 pm to 7.00 pm on both days
