Sudan: Khartoum City Resistance Committees Coordination – Events of May 21 Procession (22.05.2022)

The coup authorities and their various forces committed acts of violence and killing with live ammunition against peaceful revolutionaries during a procession on May 21 in the national capital of Omdurman, resulting in the martyrdom of a revolutionary (Mohammed Khalis) and the injury of dozens of others.

We pray for God’s mercy to be upon the martyr and a speedy recovery for the wounded, and we urge on the peaceful revolutionaries to adhere to peacefulness and begin an open escalation in all the cities and villages of Sudan, using all the methods of peaceful and civil resistance.

This brutal coup authority has been carrying out all of its activities without restraint or regard for this great nation. We urge on all forces that reject the coup to intensify their political and revolutionary actions.

In conclusion, woe to those who committed crimes against the Sudanese people, woe to the coup authority and their supporters, and woe to those who violated fundamental rights. The revolution will triumph, and you will have a destiny that you will not escape.

Sudan: Sudanese Congress Party – Statement (22.05.2022)

A statement on the crimes of the coup authority in the face of the peaceful processions of May 21, 2022 AD

Our steadfast people;

The forces of the coup d’état are still continuing to kill our people without conscience or conscience, with the aim of breaking the thorn in the escalating resistance mass movement, which is unbreakable, yesterday, a martyr rose in the peaceful processions of May 21, 2022 AD in the city of Omdurman, and we pray for him for mercy and forgiveness, and dozens fell among those wounded by live bullets, some of them seriously injured, or suffocated by tear gas, we wish them a speedy recovery, these brute forces have used various types of deadly weapons in the face of our defenseless people, including shotguns and tear gas canisters, by aiming them directly at the bodies of honorable revolutionaries and revolutionaries. They also prevented the injured from reaching hospitals and preventing them from receiving the necessary first aid.

Our proud people;

In vain, the tyrants think that repression and killing will extinguish the flames of our people’s stoking revolution, and that their weak revolutionary authority will be prolonged. The lessons of recent history confirm that the will of the masses is inevitably past. And that crimes do not and will not be subject to a statute of limitations, but rather they are a burden on the bill of justice that must be paid, even after a while.

And the unity of the rebellious masses in the largest broad resistance front under a unified leadership is the imposition of the hour that must be fulfilled, at that time the monstrous night of totalitarianism will come to light, and the sun of freedom, justice and peace will rise in all parts of our generous country.

Long live our people free and victorious

Sudan: Forces of Freedom and Change – Executive Office – Important Statement (21.05.2022)

(Let us unite to defeat the coup and stop the violence against the peaceful revolutionaries and the mass movement)

Our people are still a boiling cauldron against the coup and present the martyr after the martyr, and today in valor resembling the women and men of Omdurman. The masses came out demanding their right to freedom, peace, justice, dignity and citizenship, and presented the martyr Muhammad Khalis, who fell by the bullets of the revolutionary junta, which did not learn anything from the lessons of our people’s resistance to tyranny and did not forget anything, and the practice of repression against the peaceful revolutionaries in different areas of the capital.

On the other hand, dozens of detainees from the Resistance Committees are still languishing in the prisons of the coup authority, and a number of them suffer from a deterioration in their health and ill-treatment of a number of freedom and revolution detainees in Port Sudan prison.

We appeal to the Sudanese men and women at home and abroad to escalate campaigns of solidarity with the detainees, and we make a special appeal to the revolutionaries of the city of Port Sudan to make their voices heard loudly for the revolutionaries in the detention centers and the whole world, in refusal to infringe on freedom and demand their immediate release without delay.

To the revolutionaries and revolutionaries:

Let us raise the banner of the unity of the revolutionary forces without delay or hesitation, to build the broadest civil front to defeat the coup, and we call on everyone in the cities and countryside of our country to show solidarity with the Omdurman revolutionaries in the millions we entrusted before in all parts of the country.

To the international community:

The escalating violence during the last period and today in Omdurman confirmed that the coup junta lacked the political will and did not desire a democratic climate or a political solution, which confirms the correctness of our previously announced position that it is not possible to initiate any productive political process in light of the state of emergency, excessive violence and continuous killing in the face of the mass movement, the continuation of political arrests and the regressive decisions taken by the coup authority in favor of the former regime.

Finally, we must come out with all our banners of solidarity and solidarity among all the sons and daughters of our people from El Geneina to Omdurman.

The invitation of the UN Mission to Support the Transition in Sudan, the African Union, and the IGAD was accepted on 12th of May, 2022, concerning the development of the political situation and surveying of resistance committees’ perspectives on the development of the political process following the October 25 coup, as well as responding resistance committees’ queries regarding the announced political discussions.

Representatives of the Khartoum State Resistance Committees Coordination met with the tripartite mechanism and conveyed to them our clear position on the political process, which is based on the charter for establishment of People’s Power that was inaugurated and signed. The charter was presented in detail to the delegates of the tripartite mechanism.

We issued this statement to entrust our bases and the Sudanese people with the outcome of what transpired within the meeting, and we reiterate that we, as the coordination of the resistance committees, are devoted to the revolutionary slogans and their high aims and that our initial position on the upcoming political process is that there is no negotiation, partnership, or legitimacy with the coup authority, and that this meeting took place with the approval of our bases, and that it represents the independent position of the resistance committees’ coordination, and is unaffected by political speculations and attempts to create parallel contexts that affect the committees’ dealings with the national landscape.

Sudan: Sudanese Communist Party and the Resistance Committee’s Agrees on not participating in the Dialogue with the Tripartite Mechanism

In Khartoum, the Tripartite Mechanism (UNITAMS, IGAD and African Union) have together formed a unit, which hold dialogue between the Transitional Sovereign Council and civil society. That has been done within the recent days, but some honourable mentions and lack of thereof, is inevitable. As the tensions and the crackdown on protests continues from the authorities.

In Sudan there is very evident of distrust and it’s with merit. As the current Sovereign Council has done twice a self-serving coup d’etat and tried to hoodwink the international community into believing that it stood for the Sudanese Revolution. Which it clearly doesn’t do and isn’t intended to serve that either.

That’s why the Resistance Committee statement and Sudanese Communist Party statement as well serves as a message of this. The Tripartite Mechanism is forgetting one main factor and this is the remaining Army Commanders of the former Regime is still ruling. The same military factions and their stranglehold on power. That has inflicted more pain and suffering. The amount of blood, detained civilians and other brutal crackdowns haven’t stopped with toppling of dictator Al-Bashir. Instead it has amplified and showed that his henchmen are still the law of the land. Therefore, the civilians and the revolutionary people are within their rights to dismiss talks with the ones that is killing them.

The first article of the charter for establishment of the people’s power

First: Overthrow of the coup

1- Rejecting any calls for direct or indirect negotiations with the putschists and continuing the peaceful resistance through our tried and innovative means.

2- Overthrow of the October 25 coup and holding all the civil and military forces involved in it accountable.

3- Cancellation of the constitutional document & establishment of a constitutional status through a temporary constitutional declaration based on the charter for the establishment of people’s power,as well as a review of all agreements concluded & decrees issued since April 11, 2019” (Resistance Committee – Media Committee for the Charter’s Inauguration, 13.05.2022).

There is no new reason to meet with you after we explained to you in the previous meeting our position on your efforts to negotiate directly between political forces and military coup and political forces that were partners of the National Congress until the fall of its power in April 2019” (Sudanese Communist Party, 14.05.2022).

We still see a mistake in your handling of the Sudanese issue, treating it as a crisis between political forces and the military should be solved by negotiation, you don’t see or appreciate that there is a popular revolution going on since the 25th October 2021 coup to overthrow the coup and establish a civil state Dem Qaratia achieving its goals in freedom, justice and peace” (Sudanese Communist Party, 14.05.2022).

These statements are significant. They are stating a sincere stance and an honest one. This shows that the premise and the ideals of the Tripartite Mechanism is flawed from the on-set. As that put trust into the hands of the ones who has violated previous agreements. The current Sovereign Council is filled of people who has gone up in ranks and cemented their foothold without any sort of justification. Other than that they have had the ability to serve the previous head of state and found a solution to overtake his control when he fell. That is all there is and they are just in pursuit of casting a broader net to vindicate itself and get legitimized after two successful coups.

So, the Resistance Committee’s and the Sudanese Communist Party is within their rights to not accept or give way. They see nothing insightful from this and it’s only a way of forging legitimacy, which the Head of State and his Deputy wants to have. That is the gist of it and the Tripartite Mechanism is only giving them leeway to find paths and means to either buy-out or give plum-jobs to technocrats. While still holding all the keys to the future. As we know the Sovereign Council is not willing to budge or serve any real interests in the ideals of the revolution. Why do I say that?

Well, the army commanders of the Sovereign Council most likely would become leaders of the army, but not have a profile or have a political function. They would serve to deliver peace and control the sovereignty of the territory. However, they would not sit around the table and have a feast on the government budget. Because, they would follow command and orders from representatives of the people. Which is far from the will or the humiliation these sorts of character could handle after all these years with vast power. Peace.

Sudan: Abuadam Resistance Commitees – Press Release – The Political Settlement (09.05.2022)

A salute of glory and honor to this people who did not lay down despite the length of the battle, a salute of glory and perseverance to the revolutionaries who resisted the coup with chants and bare chests, and the loss of their comrades did not deter them from pursuing their dreams. Glory to the martyrs who sacrificed their lives as a dowry for their homeland, thereby closing the path for anybody attempting to circumvent their stated demands.

Our proud people:

The notion of a political settlement, which is being promoted by entities and individuals who have been and continue to benefit from their presence on the political scene since independence and are actively trying to demonstrate that settlements are the only way out and the only solution to the Sudanese political crisis, we tell them that Sudan is not in a state of political tension that can be resolved through negotiation and dialogue, Sudan is under a military coup controlled by a junta of soldiers and profiteers and remnants of the bygone era that must be overthrown.

And that the settlement, which certain initiatives labored to achieve, is in reality a kiss of life for the weak military and political institutions, till they readjust their place within the government. And our position on it remains unambiguous and unwavering, which is (that establishing any dialogue or settlement in which one of the parties is the Al-Bashir Security Committee led by Burhan and Hemeti..it may result in a new partnership or a safe exit for them and a jump over the blood of the martyrs. And it is nothing but a blocker in front of the desired democratic change), not long ago something similar occurred.

The revolutionary street is too powerful to seek half-solutions while it has not yet been defeated, so that it negotiate with Al-Burhan and his thugs, rather, they are the ones who knock on the doors until they find a way out before they are overthrown.

We are aware of their intention to disrupt the scale of the political landscape by drawing some political forces, armed movements, and civil administrations in order to portray themselves as the stronger party… The street scale, on the other hand, is a digital balance that does not have two scales.

Our great people:

The political position of the resistance committees is explained in their declared political charter, which is the first political document that was proposed & agreed upon at the level of the largest national popular base which will be born in the coming days, to be put forward until all the national, political, civil, union gather under its umbrella, representing the will of the people, and preventing any deviation from the revolution’s demands. this charter, whose first clause is the uprooting of al-Bashir’s security committee and their prosecution.

And if the settlement cards are on the tables of those who are willing to give up their principles for the sake of their narrow interests, we declare aloud that this settlement will be opposed by the revolutionary will and the achievement of truth, justice, and the desired democratic transformation, and we emphasize that the revolution will continue until all the aspirations of the street are achieved.

Sudan: Hemeti’s dishonest message

We must all coexist with one another with goodness and virtue, keeping away from all forms of division and diaspora, and renounce tribalism, racism and regionalism in order to preserve this unified and cohesive nation that we inherited from our ancestors. The manifestations of disharmony, difference and dispersion that Sudan is suffering from require us to take a sincere pause to review ourselves and our positions, and we all think about our true national interests away from the party, tribe or party, to be our slogan (the flag of Sudan). We are very sorry for the harsh conditions that our people are experiencing in their livelihood due to the economic conditions that the country is witnessing, but we also have good news that (after hardship but relief) our hope in God is great, and after him our hope in our young capabilities and arms. The only way out of the political crisis that the country is going through is (dialogue). There is no alternative to dialogue but dialogue, and we are able to overcome all difficulties through purposeful discussion that is based on frankness, clarity, honesty and justice, and which is based on established national principles, distance from the agenda and self-love. We send a special message to our people who endured difficulties with all patience. We bow to you in appreciation and gratitude. You deserve the best. The journey of a mile begins with a step. We must continue the path. The homeland awaits us and the future is ours” (Vice President Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, 02.05.2022).

The Vice President and Brigadier General Mohamed Hamdan “Hemeti” Dagolo has come out with his message of peace on the celebration of Id al-Fitr. This as the Rapid Support Force (RSF) or Janjaweed is used with force in Darfur and in the rest of the Republic. It is not like Hemeti’s forces is coming with peace and justice. No, they are serving injustice and impunity. Just the recent action of in West Darfur State.

Hemeti can speak of dialogue, but the current Transitional Sovereign Council it took away it’s credibility with the October 2021 coup. The Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) and Sudanese Professional Association (SPA) isn’t a part of it now. They have instead gotten warlords into the Council, but not civilian technocrats or leaders of revolution. That’s why it’s rich of speaking of dialogue, when his one of the ring-leaders of the army takeover of the government.

The Vice President wants to sound like a reasonable man, but his forces and the usage of military force to displace, distort protest and quell the civilians is showing his message is useless or totally dishonest. As we are supposed to forget how the state is going after the Resistance Councils, the opposition parties and target civilian activists. We even know the authorities raiding and targeting hospitals after demonstrations. So, the Vice President talking of co-existence, but not giving breathing space to the dissidents in the Republic.

Hemeti is insincere and proves it. That is the sort of double-talk of negotiations and co-existence, but his regime is relentless with use of violence and brutality against the ones who dissident. That’s why it’s hard to believe his words, as the deaths and arrests since October 2021 alone is huge. While we know the amount of people hurt and with lasting pains are even bigger. Therefore, speaking of peace, when you are ordering war isn’t truthful, but dishonest.

He dropped this message on social media to boost his persona and role in the state. As he has used his Janjaweed or RSF to get into office. Hemeti is a man of war and a militia-leader himself. He now wants to be seen as a statesman, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Hemeti is a man of war and his RSF is the epitome of that. He decrees war and conflict… the General thrives on this and he has even been known for selling arms to Tchad. So, we know that he doesn’t mind to earn profits as a lord of war. That is the sort of fella he is and that shouldn’t be forgotten. The latest conflict and usage of war in Darfur is nothing new. His just continuing with the fierce methods which gave him power.

That’s why we know… Hemeti isn’t a man of co-existence or dialogue. No, his a man of brutality and murder. This is why the Resistance doesn’t want to talk to him or anyone who is participating in the junta government in Khartoum. Peace.
