Divestment and Sudan; and the Rwanda Generation- something for the UU Service Commitee

from Norm, about the Sudan divestment campaign.
Why have US students responded so strongly to Sudan, when closer-to-home issues like the Iraq War and cuts in financial aid have failed to produce mass movements on campus? "This is the Rwanda generation," says [Samantha]Power. "The foundational moral learning experience for these students was Rwanda - they don't understand how they could have been alive while it happened."
The UUSC should get on board with this.
