Off the Grid: South Sudan

From 1983 to 2005, the second Sudanese civil war raged between Northern and Southern Sudan. An estimated 2.5 million people were killed in this war. In February 2003, a separate conflict erupted in the western region of the country known as Darfur. Currently, the UN and the international community struggle to maintain stability in the region of Darfur. Amidst this turmoil, Dr. John Gaurang, the leader of the SPLA or the the Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army brokered a peace agreement with the Government of Sudan controlled by the National Congress Party and President Omar al-Bashir. This peace agreement ended the Second Sudanese Civil War and was highlighted by a provision for a Referendum in 2011. On January 9, 2011, a referendum(or vote) for the independence of South Sudan is scheduled to be held. There are several possible outcomes of this referendum but the two that seem most probable are either a third civil war or the birth of a new African nation.
