Sudan demo rocks Accra; coalition fights for democracy in Sudan

Members of the Ghana Coalition in Solidarity with the People’s Revolution in Sudan have embarked on demonstration through some principal streets in Accra for restoration of freedom and democracy in Sudan.

The group told journalists after the march that they have observed the happenings in Sudan with regards to the ouster of Omar Al-Bashir through the people’s revolution and the subsequent hijacking of the revolution by the military.

“We have noted with horror the violent manner in which the Sudanese military has attempted to disperse the People who stand by their demand for civilian rule.

“Reports indicate that the unwarranted attacks perpetrated against the people in the June 3rd Massacre have resulted in over 120 murders, 40 recorded rapes, 500 injured and a large number of People missing,” member of the group, Namata Serumaga-Musisi said.

She maintained that the political situation in Sudan is of concern to all well-meaning Africans across the world, adding the military brutality perpetrated against peaceful civilians exercising their inalienable political rights is condemnable and should be immediately stopped.

The members of the coalition are demanding that “all rights and privileges including access to internet, radio and other communication avenues should be restored without any delay.”

The African Union’s suspension of Sudan, according to them, is a good step, saying “but it falls far short of taking concrete steps to ensure that the people’s revolution is not stolen.”

They said the only sustainable solution to the crisis is the immediate return to civilian rule.

“The interference by rogue nations – such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE – whose support for civilian massacre makes them complicit, must be condemned.

“We note with concern the choice made by Canadian lobbying firm Dickens & Madson (Canada) Inc. to sign a US$6-million deal in payment for seeking government funds and diplomatic recognition for the military leader Hemedti, whose Janjaweed are responsible for, among other things, the atrocities committed in Darfur,” they added.

The group has declared its support for the People’s Revolution in Sudan, and demand that the Sudanese be given back their right to self-determination, in the faith and knowledge that they will be able to rebuild their democracy.
