Format: Paperback
You already know these two men. Prendergast has been working for years to stop the atrocities being committed in Darfur, and has often been seen in newscasts from the Sudan and elsewhere. You remember Cheadle as the hero in the movie "Hotel Rwanda". Here they are focussing on three issues: Genocide in Darfur, Child Soldier Recruitment in Uganda under the Lord's ResistanceArmy, and Rape as a Weapon of War in Eastern Congo. In each case they describe the situation, and give ample testimony from "Upstanders" who stand up for a solution to the issue.

They emphasize that people who think that Africa is hopeless will see no point in getting active, and therefore must be made to realize that Africa is not hopeless, and things have actually been accomplished through activism, such as saving lives, supporting peacemaking, indicting war criminals, deploying peacekeepers, and removing genocide from stock portfolios. They recount the lives of many success stories and the people behind them, such as Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, Desmond Tutu of South Africa, and Wangari Maathai of Kenya.

On the Congo segment they underline two organizations that have been involved: Stop Raping Our Greatest Resource: Power to the Women and Girls of the Congo, and Raise Hope for Congo, which is coordinated by the Enough Project. There are many Congolese Upstanders portrayed, and among the American ones are Lisa Jackson, whose excellent film "The Greatest Silence" you have seen, Ben Affleck who also did a film on Congo, and Angelina Jolie.

The book concludes with 14 practical suggestions as to what readers may do to join in the fight for justice in the Sudan, Uganda, and the Congo. You are urged to contact [...]

An important follow up book to Not on Our Watch...that engages the reader and moves them to action! Its a must read for anyone who both wants to understand what's happening in the region...and more importantly what we can do as Americans to help end these horrific human rights abuses in Africa. I like that he added information regarding Uganda and the Congo into this book...creating a larger base to pull from. Well done!

Title The Enough Moment: Fighting to End Africa's Worst Human Rights Crimes
Author
Cheadle, Don
John Prendergast
Rating ****
Tags non-fiction, africa, darfur, congo, rape, genocide, child soldiers

This is the second book by John Prendergast, who has worked on human rights issues for over 25 years, and actor Don Cheadle, whose interest in the conflicts in Africa increased when he played the lead character in the movie Hotel Rwanda.

The book is about creating "enough" moments for each person - the moment when a person says, "this is enough, I'm going to do something about this situation". The situations they emphasize in the book are the genocide in Darfur, the abduction of children to be soldiers and/or sexual slaves, and the use of rape as a weapon of war. A lot of the book concerns Congo, where millions have died, millions more displaced, and many, many women raped repeatedly, often left with physical damage and unwanted babies.

The book can be very hard to read, because it talks about horrors that equal those perpetrated by the Nazis. Yet while portraying the very worst humans are capable of, it also tells many stories about the best of humanity. People who have been victims of terrible evil yet are not only surviving, they are determined to help others and do. There are also stories of people who have not been victims, but when hearing of the atrocities have done something, whatever they can, to help the situation.

Almost all of us bear some responsibility for these atrocities, as much of the conflicts are over access to minerals that go in our laptops and cell phones. So one thing that most of us could do is to encourage companies that manufacture electronics to use conflict-free minerals.

Most already know both John Prendergast and Don Cheadle, both men are household names not just associated with humanitarianism but synonymous with it. Prendergast has devoted his career as an activist and writer to raising awareness and demanding for action to stop atrocities around the globe. In recent years, Prendergast’s efforts have been committed to making changes in Darfur, and he has often been seen in newscasts from the Sudan and elsewhere. Of course, Don Cheadle is a famous actor who has played many roles, one of his most memorable performances was in the movie "Hotel Rwanda". Mr. Cheadle has used his fame and financial success to be one of the greatest humanitarians of our time. These two collaborating authors focus on the following issues: Genocide in Darfur, Child Soldier Recruitment in Uganda under the Lord's Resistance Army, and Rape as a Weapon of War in Eastern Congo.

This insightful book educates and attempts to engage individuals who think that Africa war crimes are unacceptable for those living in Darfur, Uganda, and the Congo. The ultimate goal is to get more people to be active in this humanitarian cause. It is well written and allows the reader to be emotionally connected to the plights of the African people and then come realization of just how much has been accomplished through activism, from saving lives, prosecuting and indicting war criminals, deploying peacekeepers, and eradicating genocides.

The authors’ emphasize the importance of two organizations that have been instrumental making positive changes in the Congo; Stop Raping Our Greatest Resource: Power to the Women and Girls of the Congo, and Raise Hope for Congo, which is coordinated by the Enough Project. The Enough Project is of course co-founded by Don Cheadle.
