Sudanese Communist Party: The struggle for the overthrow of the military regime must continue

In a statement issued on December 1st, the Secretariat of the CC of the Sudanese Communist Party provides updated information on the situation in the country and condemns the new brutal crackdown unleashed by state forces against peaceful demonstrators. 

The statement reads:

Tens of thousands of peaceful demonstrators took the streets of the capital and other major cities expressing their rejection of the political agreement reached and signed by the leader of the coup General Burhan and Prime Minister Hamadok. 

Yesterday, Tuesday the 30th of November, Sudanese masses in their hundreds of thousands, marched and occupied the streets of the capital Khartoum, Omdurman, Atbara, El Obeid, Al Fasher, Gedaref, Kassala, and Zalingei demanding the immediate end to military controlled regime and calling for the establishment of full civil and democratic rule.

The peaceful mass actions were met with brutal and excessive use of force, resulting in dozens wounded demonstrators, some of them in very critical condition. The thugs of the repressive regime armed and in uniform, forced their way into hospitals, detaining some of the wounded and impeding the work of doctors and nurses treating their victims.

The SCP salutes the steadfastness and resilience of the demonstrators and strongly condemns the repression unleashed against them. It calls on its members and all progressive forces to continue the struggle until the complete defeat and the overthrow of the present military dominated regime.

Furthermore, it appeals to all fraternal communist and workers parties to continue their solidarity action with the struggle of the Sudanese people for democracy, peace and social justice.
