Vbs.tv, „television“ channel of Vice magazine, has a feature about the Sudan/Darfur conflict.

Before I went to Sudan, I didn’t know much about the conflict in Darfur beyond everyone saying, “It’s the worst genocide of our time,” and watching footage on CNN of the Janjaweed militia wiping out whole villages. Really, we only decided to go there because one of our favorite photographers in the UK, Jamie-James Medina, had been chatting with an old friend of his who is now a UN press officer in Khartoum. She offered to pull some strings and get us visas and organize flights around the country, so we said, “Fuck it,” and got on a plane. (Shane Smith – Co-founder of VICE magazine)
