South Sudan Votes!

Filed under: Governance,Human Rights — terence @ 7:00 pm

Here in Canberra too. A sign for the ANU polling centre. Set up so South Sudanese refugees can vote in the independence referendum. I can’t claim any expertise on the Sudanese conflicts, or offer any predictions about the new nation’s future (should that be what’s decided on) but it was hard not to watch the voting today and feel on the edge of something, watching the old colonial borders tremble. And it was impossible not to wholeheartedly hope that if a new nation is born its fate is a happy one. Good luck!
