BackgroundDarfur is a long-neglected province in western Sudan.Two major groups:Farmers or Peasants PastoralistsFarmers and pastoralists live in symbiotic relationship of mutual dependence.Background ContinuedPastoralists see themselves as Arabs and look down upon the sedentary farmers as lesser people. Discrimination of status is seen developed in these two groups.All pastoralists have guns, despite the amount of poverty in Darfur.

Due to economic needs, farmers and pastoralists are put under pressure by wealthy local Jellaba merchants to produce more quantizes of products.
