What does Genocide mean? the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.
How can we Prevent Genocide?
1.Sounding the alarm Preventing mass atrocities requires political will first and foremost. We must speak up and demand that government leaders make the right choices to prevent and stop atrocities.
2 . Stopping the enablers of genocide and mass atrocities Perpetrators of genocide and mass atrocities cannot succeed without the support of other governments and corporations. We follow the money and apply public pressure to shame and stop companies and governments that finance mass violence. We call to account any nation that would welcome or reward a perpetrator of mass atrocity.
3. Making genocide prevention a core value in U.S. foreign policy In April 2012, President Barack Obama announced a series of actions to ensure the United States is better able to prevent and respond to genocide and mass atrocities. The landmark announcement came after years of pressure from activists and organizations working to ensure that the United States’ failure to adequately respond to past atrocities will not be repeated.
