A Refresher on South Sudan| When Something is Not Trending in the Media It Doesn’t Mean it’s Not There

South Sudan Has a Choice… Between Misery and Horror | The Huffington Post

What coverage the ongoing crisis in South Sudan has received so far has been dominated by two messages:                                                                                                                                       One, that a falling out last year between members of this young country’s first ever government ended up reigniting long-simmering ethnic tensions in South Sudan, which eventually exploded into open conflict.

Two, that the United Nations is predicting a dire nutritional crisis of “man-made origin” to take place before the end of this year.

There is, however, another crisis looming in South Sudan, one that affects hundreds of thousands of civilians seeking to escape the brutal violence of the current conflict. Fortunately, this “protection crisis” can still be averted — but only if urgent measures are taken as soon as possible.
