  • New CD Aims To Help Stop Genocide In Sudan

    Waxploitation Records will do their part to help fight against the Genocide that is taking place in Sudan, by releasing an album and dedicating the proceeds of the charity.

    Genocide in Sudan includes donated tracks by Jurassic 5, X-ecutioners, Jill Scott, System of a Down, Yoko Ono, Gorillaz, DJ Spooky, Danger Mouse & Murs, Toots and The Maytals and others.

    More than half of the album contains exclusive songs and rarities.

    “We’re trying to address two things with this CD,” says Waxploitation CEO Jeff Antebi, the album’s executive producer. “The first is to get the United Nations to declare the ongoing atrocities Genocide, so that real action can take effect to stop what is obviously an ‘ethnic cleansing’ taking place, in violation of the 1948 Geneva Convention. The second is to raise money for the dire relief situation effecting over 1 million innocent civilians who might die from starvation and disease if aid does not reach them right now.”

    According to the UN, the conflict in Sudan has created the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than one million people driven from their homes and up to 50,000 people killed by government supported militias known as “Janjaweeds.”

    The systematic rape of women and the murder of children have been widely reported. Troops cannot intervene in the conflict until the UN officially labels the situation Genocide.

    All of the profits from the CD will donated to the United Nations Refuge Agency and UNICEF (www.unhcr.ch and www.UNICEF.org ).

    Genocide in Sudan will be available at most music retailers nationwide.
