KKE: Solidarity with the people of Sudan

In a statement about the recent developments in Sudan the International Relations Section of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) points out:

"The KKE denounces the junta in Sudan that was imposed on 25/10/2021 and cost the lives of a total of 53 citizens. The Sudanese junta authorities continue the criminal practice against the people’s demonstrations by brutally repressing them. 

It expresses its solidarity with the people of Sudan and the Sudanese Communist Party and demands the restoration of democratic rights and freedoms. 

Hands off to the people of Sudan!".

(In Arabic)

متضامنون مع شعب السودان

دين الحزب الشيوعي اليوناني النظام العسكري السوداني الذي فُرض في 25\10\2021 وأودى إجمالاً بحياة 53 مواطناً. إن سلطات النظام العسكري السوداني تواصل ارتكاب أفعالها الإجرامية ضد المظاهرات الشعبية عبر ممارسة القمع الوحشي.

يُعرب الحزب الشيوعي اليوناني عن تضامنه مع شعب السودان و مع الحزب الشيوعي السوداني، ويطالب باستعادة الحقوق والحريات الديمقراطية.

ارفعوا أيديكم عن شعب السودان!

Urgent Call by the Sudanese Communist Party

A few days earlier, on the 30th December 2021, the Sudanese Communist Party had issued the following urgent call:

"The mass demonstrations that came out today, 30 December 2021, in the Sudanese capital Khartoum, Omdurman and other cities against military rule have been subjected to bloody repression. Security forces, police and Rapid Support Forces fired live bullets and tear gas against peaceful demonstrators, killing four people and wounding more than 200. Many leaders of the Resistance Committees have been detained as part of this wave of brutal repression, in a desperate attempt to crush the mounting mass protest movement since the military coup on 25 October.

An urgent appeal issued today by several medical associations called for urgent help to save the lives of the injured who were taken to hospitals, including critical cases. Some ambulances were prevented from evacuating the injured to hospitals.

The Sudanese Communist Party strongly condemns the escalation of bloody repression by the coup authority. It will continue working with all the relevant forces to strengthen and establish the broadest front to resist and defeat the coup and achieve complete democratic civilian rule in Sudan.

We call for urgent international solidarity to demand an end to the bloody repression in Sudan and the immediate release of all political detainees, especially the leaders of the Resistance Committees."
