Support the protests in Sudan – no imperialist intervention

On Friday, the German government is holding a meeting in Berlin to discuss Sudan. This is a meeting of imperial powers – the Sudanese opposition is not welcome. For this reason, Sudan Uprising Germany is holding a 24 hour protest against the violence of the illegitimate Transnational Military Council (TMC), and calling for an end to Germany’s direct and indirect support for the Sudanese Dictatorship.

Read their press statement in English and German

The demonstration starts on Thursday at 4pm in front of the Foreign Ministry, Werderscher Markt 1 (facebook event here). If you would like to take part. but don’t want to be on your own, the LINKE Berlin Internationals will be meeting there at 6pm. Please come along when you can.

Because of the urgency of what is happening in Suday, we have changed the subject of our monthly meeting next Monday. It will now have the title Revolution and Counter-Revolution in Sudan: Why the West and Russia are enabling the dictatorship. More information will follow soon.

Please do what you can to support the protests. We will continue to document the ongoing situation on our Website
