www.campdarfur.org has details on SL and LIVE camps in Los Angeles, San Francisco and DC.

Thanks for featuring this project....the shooting range is tempting but we kept the guns out for the first build. Camp Darfur is designed to be a viral pack and play where other refugee camps (or minicamps with teleport stations) can be added to any SL land. More interactive elements are coming online most every day.

DWB is one of 44 aid groups currently working in the Sudan; others have had to recently pull out due to frequent threats and attacks, transport issues (stolen aid trucks are common and resources often do not reach the camps). Transportation is the first thing that will change the situation in the Sudan, along with a global outcry, divestment and lots of pressure from governments and others.

good to see you here evonne!

you appear to be elluding to an abstraction I'm not quite following - however, reusability is what I'm hearing esp for other activist efforts!

has this concept of "viral pack and play" been documented in any way?

I can't be believe there aren't more movies out about Darfur. I heard that there was one coming soon called Attack on Darfur. Apparently it's a pretty accurate representation of the real horrors that are going on there. I heard it doesn't hold back at all, we see the full out rapes, infanticide, and killings. It's sad, but at least one movie is trying to finally expose the real horrors going on there without having to hold back for audiences.
