Joint Press Release | Next Week’s Schedule – Khartoum State Resistance Committees Coordination

The masses of our proud people:

When the sons and daughters of our great Sudanese people came out to demand freedom, peace and justice, they were aware that the road would not be short or paved with roses to realize their ambitions to build a free and democratic homeland that everyone can embrace except for those who oppose it.

And when a martyr gives his life as a dowry for the dawn of justice, peace, and freedom, we stand in  homage and appreciation, and we hope that the bloodshed will end because the homeland needs the lives of youth more than their death; however, no matter how many casualties we suffer or how tired we are, we cannot lie down during the battle, as the martyr Abdul Azim, the symbol of courage, said.

The continuation of coup militias, in their various forms and formations, killing, torturing, and intimidating those who take to the streets to demand the most basic human and civil rights strengthens our resolve to continue our march against any totalitarian rule, regardless of its orientation or uniform. We emphasize the significance of closely monitoring any crimes perpetrated against peaceful protestors as international and local laws guarantee their freedom to peacefully express themselves and seek their just and legitimate rights.

The recent resurgence of rape incidents reflects the miserable state of the coup militias, and they believe, delusively, that these despicable acts will break the resolve of the “Kandakas” who took the noble stand of awareness and courage in the battle against dictatorship. They also seek to demoralize the participants in the millions marches and their families, especially with the escalation of The anti-coup wave, and closure of the horizon for “prosthetic solutions” to get out of the political crisis created by the coup authorities themselves.

We strongly condemn the security forces’ attacks on educational and health institutions, as well as their intimidation and harming of teachers, doctors, and other staff in these facilities, who face challenges on a daily basis to provide education and treatment to our people.  They are attacks that reflect the moral turpitude and values of those who carry them out. Even in the most intense battles, these facilities are protected. We urge all segments of society to express their unequivocal condemnation of these acts and to cooperate to ensure the security and safety of workers in these vital facilities.

Daughters and sons of our people:

The deterioration of the security situation in various parts of the beloved country clearly demonstrates the coup regime’s failure to achieve the most basic conditions of life, which are security and safety for the people, as well as the coup’s attempt to intimidate the people through expendable means in order to maintain its dictatorial rule.

We reiterate our rejection to the coup authorities’ economic impoverishment policies, which resulted in an outrageous spike in the cost of basic goods and services, pushing the majority of Sudanese people below the poverty line.

As we affirm the continuation of the revolution and resistance to the coup until we complete what we started in glorious December in pursuit of a homeland that provides a decent life for its daughters and sons, we renew our commitment to peace, our most powerful weapon in the face of the machine of oppression, rape and murder.

We believe that our people are able to devise more ways and means to resist the coup, defeat it, and open windows of hope towards a tomorrow that realizes its ambitions.

We call upon all the revolutionary forces in our country to unite and work to achieve the common goal, that is, to overthrow the coup and build a homeland in which the values of freedom, peace and justice prevail.

Ahead of us is the morning, and the morning is bright, drawing its radiance from our revolutionary schedule.
