Joint Press Release | The General Command Sit-in Dispersal Massacre Commemoration – Khartoum State Resistance Committes Coordination

Our people resisting the coup:

At first, we condemn the massacres perpetrated by the coup authorities, regular forces of all divisions, and armed movements’ forces in West Darfur state (El Geneina and Kreinik), which are a continuation of wasting Sudanese lives and shedding Sudanese blood. However, Sudanese blood is one, and we hold the coup authority, its judicial and regular institutions, and its militias fully responsible for what is occurring in Darfur, and we will work to hold everyone responsible for every suffering and harm experienced by our people in the Darfur region accountable.

Our steadfast people:

The case of the General Command sit-in remained unresolved for two years. We followed the statements of the Chairman of the Independent National Committee to investigate this crime (Nabil Adeeb) a year and a half ago when he said that the revelation of the investigation’s findings may result in a military coup, which occurred on October 25, 2021. It was one of the reasons, along with the dismantling of the regime on June 30, 1989, the recovery of public funds, the extradition of ousted Omar al-Bashir and his associates to the International Criminal Court, and the approaching handover of power to civilians and the military’s removal from the political process. The transitional period necessitates an evaluation of the experience and a study of all of its positives and negatives in order to avoid similar occurrences in the future. We stand with the Sudanese street’s demands that it only negotiate the transfer of power to civilians and the return of the military to the barracks and a purely civilian authority, that there is no legitimacy for any military coup or sitting with putschists in a settlement, and that the previous experience was the best example that the military institution cannot be entrusted with the principles of the glorious December revolution.

Our honorable people:

There is no reconciliation or negotiation with the former regime, its dissolved party and its façade, or with the general Islamic political parties that want to re-emerge through the calls of the tripartite mechanism in the so-called Sudanese dialogue. We categorically reject their entry into any political process, as do those who fell with the Salvation regime and the dissolved National Congress Party, as well as all parties that participated in it until April 11, 2019 and fell with it, and we emphasize that anyone who pursues cheap settlements and scrambles for power by selling the blood of martyrs puts themselves in the same category as the putschists. There is no distinction between the killer and those that aid them via incubators that do not represent the Sudanese people or the revolutionary street.

Our hero people:

We will march again to overthrow the coup and its authority on the General Command Sit-in Dispersal Massacre commemoration, which coincides with the 29th of Ramadan. This massacre and treachery practiced by the same names and soldiers who turned against the glorious December revolution. Accordingly, the processions of “Khartoum State Coordination” will go to (Siteen Street) and the tracks will be determined by the field committees later.

We call on all revolutionaries to burn tires and barricade the streets prior to the procession of the General Command Sit-in Dispersal Massacre commemoration on the morning of the twenty-ninth.
