Thanks to the hard work of Darfur advocates around the world, the Global Days for Darfur were a huge success! Tens of thousands of concerned citizens participated in hundreds of activities to rally around the message that time is running out for the people of Darfur and to demand immediate international action to end the violence.
More than 400 events were held in the United States, encompassing 47 states and over 300 cities. These coincided with over 50 international events. Complete media coverage of events can be found on the Save Darfur website.
We know many of you have been taking pictures at these events, and we want to make sure that everyone gets to see them! We've set up an online photo gallery of all of the photos we've received so far, and we want your images to be a part of it.
And submitting the images couldn't be simpler: Just upload your pictures to Flickr.com and add the tags antigenocide and days4darfur. Any images tagged with those words will automatically be displayed in our gallery.
Flickr.com is a free photo sharing site. We post all of our images there to give others an easy way to access them. If you're not a member of Flickr, you can sign up for free and upload several dozen photos per month.
When you upload your photos, Flickr will give you the option to add tags for all of the images you're uploading at once. Just enter "antigenocide days4darfur" (without the quotes) into that field and the photos will automatically show up in our photo gallery.
Please make sure to include the location of the event in the title or in the description of your photos.
Once you upload your photos, they may take up to an hour to show up in the gallery — but don't worry, they'll be there!
If you need any help, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll answer any questions you may have!
