Sudan: NISS campaign of arrests nets opposition leaders, activists

January 31, 2019

Mariam El Sadig El Mahdi, the co-president of the National Umma Party

Yesterday, the security and intelligence forces continued a large-scale campaign of arrest of activists and leaders of political forces from their homes and chased and prosecuted youths and women during demonstrations and protests demanding the step-down of Al Bashir and his regime from the government.

Yesterday, the security forces arrested lawyer and prominent law and human rights defender Kamal El Jazuli from his office in Khartoum and transferred him to an unknown destination.

The arrest of Kamal El Jazuli also coincided with the arrest of Mariam Mahjoub Sharif and Sarah Ibrahim.

Activists published massively on social networking sites the names of dozens of detainees arrested in various areas in Khartoum, in conjunction with the announcement by security director Salah Gosh about the release of the detainees.

Sudanese Professionals Association

The Sudanese Professionals Association and opposition forces signatory to the Declaration of Freedom and Change pointed out in a joint statement that the detention of the NISS is still crowded with professionals, politicians, and honourable citizens.

The statement said that the play to release the detainees will not fool the inside or the outside, and that the regime knows that the liberals will get out of the prisons to the streets and that the ceiling is not the release of political detainees, but the demolition of the project and its legislators.

It stressed that the release of the detainees will not restore the lives of the martyrs and the sacrifices of the Sudanese since the coming of the Al Bashir regime.

Sudan: Marching Toward a Massacre

January 16, 2019

Half a world away, crowds of heroic protesters are in the streets. They shout “Peaceful, Peaceful” even as security forces target them with live ammunition.

They are risking their lives to try to topple a genocidal ruler. But President Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other world leaders are largely ignoring these brave protesters, increasing the risk that they will be massacred.

These protests are unfolding in Sudan against the regime of President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide. Other presidents have committed genocide over the last century, but Bashir has the distinction of conducting three different genocides by my count: in South Sudan, in the Nuba Mountains and in Darfur. He is not just a serial killer; he is a serial genocidaire.

For almost a month, ordinary Sudanese have poured out of their homes and offices around the country to join this “Sudan uprising.” Perhaps 40 or more have been killed by security forces and hundreds more detained and often beaten. The police reportedly have dragged injured protesters from hospital beds, with lawyers, doctors and journalists particularly targeted.

Sudan: Sudan’s professionals lead calls for Omar Al Bashir to step down

January 13, 2019

Across Sudan, pharmacists have shuttered their stores, doctors are only admitting emergency cases, and the dentists are on strike. The head of the doctors’ union is in prison, as is his deputy and several members of the group’s executive committee. Several more doctors and medical students are hospitalised with gunshot wounds.

So far 40 demonstrators are reported to have been killed and over 1,000 detained since nationwide anti-government protests began on December 19. Alongside medical practitioners, lawyers, teachers and engineers are leading calls for long-standing autocrat Omar Al Bashir to step down.

On Sunday, the Sudanese Professionals Association, an umbrella group of unions and syndicates, organised protest marches in five cities across Sudan, including two in the Darfur region for the first time.

Sudan: Lawyers picket South Darfur court complex

January 10, 2019

Lawyers protest in Nyala yesterday

More than 100 lawyers held a protest in front of the headquarters of the Courts Complex in Nyala, capital of South Darfur on Wednesday, in solidarity with the Sudanese revolt demanding the immediate step-down of Al Bashir and his regime.

The protesters raised slogans saying: “no to killing protesters, the killers must be held accountable”, and “peaceful, peaceful”.

Security officers arrested a number of lawyers after the protest, including Adam Sharif and Abbas Bashir.

Before his arrest, Sharif told Radio Dabanga from the sit-in in Nyala that the demonstration organised by the Alliance of Democratic Lawyers in South Darfur is “in solidarity with the Sudanese people, as lawyers are the vanguard of their duty to uphold their rights and freedoms”.

The Alliance of Democratic Lawyers in South Darfur appealed to the Sudanese people to uphold their democratic right to peaceful demonstrations and come out to demand a better life in the framework of a democratic alternative that achieves justice, freedom and equality for all Sudanese.
