South Sudan: OCHA – Urgent funding needs mount as multiple interconnected shocks blight the people of South Sudan (04.07.2022)

Sudan: Forces of Freedom and Change – Press Release (03.07.2022)

We call for the diversity of forms of qualitative and mass resistance and for unity among its forces.

– The civil front is born from the unity of the field work of the resistance.

– Excessive violence, murders, and repression of the putschists responsible destroyed the political process.

We say with confidence that the October 25, 2021 coup has practically fallen and has died clinically, and what remains is the unity of the forces of the revolution that will bring him to his final resting place. We are confident that the united civil front is born in the midst of the field work of the resistance and its continuous battles and the relentless work of uniting its forces.

June 30 opened the way wide to defeat and overthrow the coup and led to the expansion of all forms of resistance work and the forces of freedom and change support its continuation and development without neglecting any of its forms, especially:

1- The processions and millions of people across the country and in the diaspora, which united the daughters and sons of our people in the countryside and cities.

2- The sit-ins in neighborhoods, cities and public squares with tight coordination between all the forces of the revolution to make it successful and solve the issues it faces.

3- Broad solidarity with the families of the martyrs and the solemn funerals for them, processions and demonstrations to commemorate their memory, and caring for the wounded.

4- Continuous provocation in neighborhoods and roads to restrain the security services, taking into account the daily needs of citizens.

5- Specific strikes and escalating preparations to reach civil disobedience and political strike as soon as possible through unified coordination between the revolutionary forces.

6- Extensive campaigns for the release of detainees, listing their names, and extending them to human rights organizations.

7- Putting the names of the martyrs on the roads and institutions in all the cities and villages of Sudan and placing their pictures that unite the Sudanese men and women without regard to geography and ethnicity, and consolidating the principles of national unity and citizenship without discrimination.

8- Serious work to establish a united civil front that transcends the sterile differences of the revolutionary forces and enables our people to defeat and overthrow the coup and the duty to establish this front now, not tomorrow.

Political process:

– Excessive repression, murders and mass arrests by the coup authority are responsible for destroying the political process.

– The coup leaders are waging war on the people Using the utmost levels of violence and brutality, a confrontation in which our people will win and seize their full and undiminished civil and democratic authority.

To the Armed Forces and Other Regular Forces:

– The coup not only harmed our country, but also the armed and other regular forces and brought them into a confrontation with the people the time has come to end this confrontation by defeating the coup and heading towards establishing a democratic civil authority and building a single professional army.

Regional and International Community:

– We call on you to denounce the crimes of the putschists and hold them accountable and the moral inequality between the perpetrators of the crime and its victims. We also call on you to exercise all forms of pressure and support for the right of our people to establish their democratic civil authority, and to demand the protection of civilians and peaceful activity.

Glory and eternity to the people of Sudan and their valiant resistance

Sudan: Hemeti isn’t a man of peace…

The two main leaders of the Transitional Sovereign Council is currently the Vice-President Lt. Gen. Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo aka Hemeti and President Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan. These are seasoned military commanders and warlords, which served tirelessly under the final years of the dictator Omar Al-Bashir. Therefore, these two are conning and scheming ahead.

These two has already altered the political sphere and tried to hijack the December revolution of 2018. Which was the end of the Al-Bashir era. The 2019 Transitional Constitutional Charter was practically dissolved when the same two warlords altered the power-structure, which they agreed upon when they took out their previous leader and head of state. That was done with the 25th October 2021.

Now, we are yet again that Hemeti acts like a righteous and a holy man, which couldn’t further from the truth. The former commander of the Rapid Support Force or the Janjaweed has blood on his hands. His militia has created bloodshed and been an instrument of tyranny over the years. Now that he has a seat in Khartoum that doesn’t change the spots of the leopard.

This is why Hemeti will try to configure himself differently now. He wants to seem as a changed man and a religious man. I cannot look into his heart or his mind. However, the orders from him as an army commander and running the militia proves otherwise. Hemeti isn’t coming peace or reconciliation. That isn’t something we can really believe in 2022.

We know the army has killed civilians as long as we can remember. The army has strangled the civilian organizations and opposition parties. They are either arresting the leaders of the CSOs, political parties or the resistance committees. If not they are killing them and going after them at the hospitals too. There is nothing that stops them from silencing the voices of reasons in the streets or organizing civil disobedience.

While the authorities and the army does this. They are silencing some, there is coming new and it’s an endless game, which it cannot win. The Resistance Committees and other organizations are working tirelessly to end the junta government, which Hemeti and Al-Burhan represents.

So, when I see the likes of Hemeti tries to holier than the rest of us. I know it is political theatre. His scheming something and wants to configure himself into a new equation. It is like Hemeti knows the Transitional Sovereign Council of the Second Coup cannot survive with these sorts of increasing protests. Neither is it making any favours with the violence and cycle of oppression against the unarmed civilians. Therefore, he his trying to remake his image and character in public.

Hemeti cannot clean the blood from his hands. He has never been held account for his actions or his orders of the years. The bloodshed and massacres in Darfur. The RSF usage to stifle and block the revolutions of recent years. Not that Al-Burhan is any better, but his just the same.

The politicking of Hemeti isn’t looking and his just cleansing himself. Just like he did when he prayed in front of ceremony earlier this year. He wants to look smug and be righteous. However, that man can never become that. Him and the army commanders should ensure a proper transition to a civilian government…

But we know Hemeti… doesn’t want to give up power. Not that Al-Burhan has any plans of leaving either. Nevertheless… the public should know about how his staging himself and trying to be self-righteous… which couldn’t be further from the case. Peace.
