Sudanese people’s protest to end 25 year’s of Bashir’s repressive regime
Saturday 21st June 2014
25 YEARS OF SLAUGHTER IN SUDAN
3 YEARS OF KILLING IN NUBA
TELL BASHIR IT’S TIME TO GO!
June 2014 marks a quarter of a century since the coup that brought President Al Bashir of Sudan to power. Since then, his regime has proved corrupt and repressive. A genocidal campaign, begun more than 11 years ago, continues to rage in Darfur. Since 2011, civilians in South Kordofan and Blue Nile States have faced daily violence, including aerial bombardment of schools, churches, mosques, markets, and the only functioning hospital. A humanitarian crisis is growing across the country – often the government denies assistance to starving civilians. Freedom of speech and abuse of human rights are at an all-time low and protesters are shot on the capital’s streets.
The situation is dire on all fronts: civilians are facing escalating cycles of violence, growing famine and the concerted destruction of their communities and culture; meanwhile, their suffering is lost in the blackout on reporting created by a repressive Government, in the inattention of the international media, and in the inability of the international community to respond sufficiently.
Join HART, and a coalition of NGOs and diaspora organisations, in asking for an end to the Khartoum Regime which, for 25 years, has continually failed its citizens.
On Saturday 21st June at 1pm at Downing Street, we will present a letter to Prime Minister David Cameron, before we move to the Sudanese Embassy at 3pm (3 Cleveland Row, London SW1A 1DD).
