Call for solidarity with the Sudanese people : The Alliance of Demand-based Campaigns (TAM)

Before the current catastrophic descent into the heavily armed battles between Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), having its roots in the Janjaweed militia, the democratic transition in Sudan had already been stumbling in the military and paramilitary power struggle, and the humanitarian situation had already been dire, with 16 million of the Sudanese population in need of urgent aid.

Now, civilians in the Capital districts and Darfur states are unprotected from heavy artillery and denied access to medical care, drinking water, electricity, and food supplies. Moreover, attacks on WFP and UNOCHA facilities and workers were reported in Darfur and against hospitals in Khartoum. The assaults, together with the run-out power sources and medical supplies, took 39 Khartoum hospitals out of service, leaving only 20 hospitals with minimal operational capacity. Civilians in the Northern and Kurdufan states are under similar threats.

The rejection of war by the Alliance of Demand-Based Campaigns (TAM) is based on our fundamental position of human beings’ right to live safely and the right to life. TAM calls on Sudan friends, peace lovers around the globe, and the democratic world to solidarize with Sudanese people and support their aspirations expressed in Sudan’s revolution slogan ; freedom, justice, and peace.

We demand :

 An immediate ceasefire
I-mmediate humanitarian aid
 The demilitarization of Sudanese cities and all civilian-inhabited areas.
 The restoration of the path towards a democratic transition and support for the civil government once it takes place by canceling Sudan’s debt, establishing economic partnerships, and providing diplomatic support.
 Furthermore, calling on your governments to prevent foreign interventions that provide arms, and logistic and intelligence support can help to avoid sliding into a civil war and a completely failed state.
