Dear Guests,
Ladies and gentlemen, families of the martyrs, the injured and the missing.
Ladies and gentlemen, representatives of the various groups that represent the nation of the Sudan.
Chairman and members of the Transitional Military Council.

Allow me, on your behalf and on behalf of the Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC) to welcome our distinguished guests:

This text was promoted by the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation, subscribed by Portuguese organizations, and sent, this August, to the Portuguese Authorities and the General Secretary of the United Nations.

The undersigned organizations, reaffirming their consistent solidarity with the Saharawi people, condemn and demand the immediate end to the violence and repression of the occupying forces of the Kingdom of Morocco, with particular intensity since July 19th.

This new escalation in repression by the forces of Morocco is occurring since July 19th, when the Saharawi people in the occupied territories, particularly in El Aaiun, came out into the streets to commemorate the victory of the Algerian national soccer team in the African Cup of Nations final. The peaceful commemorations, accompanied by demands for the independence of Western Sahara, were violently repressed, with news of the death of a 24-year-old mowed down by Moroccan auxiliary force cars and an unknown number of wounded. The Moroccan forces are using indiscriminate violence against the Saharawi population, including live fire.

The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, in cooperation with the relevant Central African agencies, continues to investigate the murder of Russian journalists Kirill Radchenko, Orkhan Dzhemal and Alexander Rastorguev in the Central African Republic (CAR) a year ago. Criminal proceedings were initiated under Article 105 (item “a,” part 2) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

We resume our march together with this – week agenda:

Monday, 1 July 2019
• Night demonstrations in nearby neighborhoods
• Visits to the wounded in hospitals and to offer condolences to the families of martyrs

unoThe appalling toll in injuries and lives from Tuesday night’s attack east of Tripoli at the Tajoura Detention Centre speaks to the deep concerns, expressed repeatedly¸ by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, over the safety of people in detention centres. This latest violence also speaks to the danger both IOM and UNHCR have warned over returning migrants and refugees to Libya after their interception or rescue on the Mediterranean Sea.

Our two organizations strongly condemn this and any attack on civilian life. We also call for an immediate end to detention of migrants and refugees. We call for a guarantee of their protection in Libya.

Security forces belonging to the Transitional Military Council (TMC) raided the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) premises and prevented the press conference, due to start earlier today- 29th of June- at 7:00 pm. We strongly condemn this repressive behavior which reflects the awe of the TMC from the SPA communicating with the people of Sudan, resorting to extreme suppression of freedom.

We hold the TMC accountable for the safety of SPA members present at the venue at the time of the incident.

The people of Sudan have inspired the world by rising up against a brutal dictatorship and steadfastly demanding a civilian-led government. Their courageous civil disobedience has been met with horrific repression, including massacres, torture, and rape. The Sudanese uprising achieved a historic victory in ending the tyrannical 30-year rule of Omar al-Bashir in April, but the struggle continues as Sudan’s military junta (the so-called Transitional Military Council) asserts its counter-revolutionary power and attempts to thwart the will of the Sudanese people.

Revolutionary Escalation Schedule

The noble people of Sudan,

Our triumphant revolution is reconstructing across Sudan; in cities, villages and, the countryside, renewing the covenant with our beloved brothers and sisters who despite their deaths live with us forever. The Sudan we all want and for which they have sacrificed their lives shall become a reality, a respectable sovereign nation.
To the tyrants who believed for a while that victory was theirs, we say, our people will rise up and stretch their wings, a phoenix, shaking off the ashes with will and determination, to recommence the journey and complete the revolution.

Our dear Brothers and Sisters in Humanity, and all those who stand in solidarity with the Sudanese people…

On behalf of the revolutionary people of Sudan, we would like to offer our sincere gratitude and appreciation for your solidarity and generosity, which we have felt since the launch of #BlueForSudan.

Yesterday’s press conference by the Transitional Military Council (TMC) was but a continuation of the misinformation campaign we have been watching in all their press conferences post the 29th of Ramadan massacre. Once again, the TMC demonstrates the same shortsighted approach of the defunct regime in adopting violence as the only answer to political problems.

The explicit and implicit threats voiced by the TMC’s spokespersons at the press conference cannot undermine the unity of the DFC Forces. They are only a clear indication of an ill-sighted approach in dealing with a crisis of their own making. TMC’s admission to ordering the brutal crackdown on protesters at the army HQ sit-in makes them the first defendant in this heinous crime.

The coup d’état -TMC resorts to a total shutdown of the internet service in  Sudan, including cutting off the landlines, which are the only remaining outlet for the Sudanese people to access the outside world and disclose the heinous crimes being committed by the Janjaweed militias and their sponsoring TMC. They are also the only outlet left to draw the world attention to the epical and heroic victories of the Sudanese people, culminating in the general political strike and civil disobedience.
