SUDAN: End the Civilian Aggression!

Posted on

  Civilians in villages in the Darfur region of Sudan have been deliberately targeted by Government troops and paramilitary forces and other armed militia. This comes after fighting between two Arab tribes intensified. These hostilities include unlawful killings, brutality, sexual violence and robbery. In the past six weeks, 100,000 people have fled their homes in Darfur due to escalating violence.
      The Sudanese Government led by President Omar al-Bashir, who was indicted of war crimes in 2009 has been largely criticized for human rights abuses against ethnic minorities.The government has also cracked down on students in Khartoum peacefully protesting the violence in Darfur,
resulting in the death of one and the detention of many protesters and activists. On March 11, Sudanese police and national
security forces used excessive force at Khartoum University to disperse Darfuri students protesting the recent attacks
against civilians in Darfur. The security forces, joined by armed men in civilian clothes, attacked the peaceful protesters.
     The Government of Sudan should protect its citizens and curb illegal activities of military and paramilitary forces. There is no justification for trampling on the human rights of their citizens.
Also, the use of force to disperse peaceful protests is totally unacceptable. The Sudanese Government should therefore put and end to this and release all protesters and activists that have been unlawfully detained.

    The world is yet again changed the channel after witnessing the gruesome act of genocide been carried out in a relaxed mannot by the government of Sudan. Now they are encouraging the perpetrator to come up with a peaceful solution. 2013 was the ultimate truth to the continuation of the war crimes committed by the GoS pro militia known to the whole wide world as the Janjaweed.
    As the first quarter of 2014 is drawn to a close. Sudanese students from Darfur region are still regular targets and easy pray to the national intelligence and security services NISS, specially in the capital Khartoum. Darfur has become hell on earth. The prospect of peaceful life seems far away. It is time for the world to stand up and help the vulnerables.

      Couldn’t agree more. The international community needs to rise up in protection of the vulnerable civilians of Sudan. People involved in the genocide must be also prosecuted.

      Truly, Al Bashir has been accused of genocide and other war crimes. He should face prosecution at the ICC
