SPA: Support our peaceful struggle to reclaim democracy in Sudan

PI member Sudanese Professionals' Association (SPA) calls for international solidarity in the Sudanese people's fight against the military coup.
We appeal to you to support the people of Sudan as they continue their peaceful battle against the remaining icons of the Ingaz regime represented by the bloody Security Committee.
We appeal to you to support the people of Sudan as they continue their peaceful battle against the remaining icons of the Ingaz regime represented by the bloody Security Committee.

Our people have, from the outset, condemned the current military coup carried out by the Security Committee on October 25th, under the leadership of General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, overthrowing the legitimate government of Sudan led by Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdouk.

The people of Sudan continue to resist the brutality of the Military Council militia with bravery and ingenuity, and this has cost them a growing number of precious lives in the last few critical days. They are determined to regain their liberty from the grip of a Military Council that represents an utter perpetuation of the bloody legacy of Omar Al-Bashir’s regime. The will of the people of Sudan is to make military coups a legacy of the past, and continue to pave the way for freedom, democracy, the rule of law and living as dignified citizens.

Sudanese people are not only fighting a military dictatorship inside the country, but are also standing against regional and international powers backing the coup, serving their own interests in usurping the resources and sucking the natural wealth of Sudan.

As the people of Sudan stand firm in their trust of the power of their masses, we call upon you to:

  • Strongly condemn the ongoing atrocities committed by the Military Council militia against the peaceful protesters.
  • Exert pressure on all governments and international organizations to take a strong stance against the leaders of the Military Council and their militias.
  • Expose and confront the countries backing the Military Council and engaging in blood-tainted partnerships to oppress the people of Sudan.
  • Actively engage in international diplomacy to stop the harmful interference of such regional and international powers against the will of the people of Sudan, that are destabilizing Sudan, and the region as a whole.

Long live the peaceful protest of Sudan, relentless until we fulfill our will.

Long live international solidarity among freedom lovers all over the world.
