South African Communist Party

27 October 2021 The South African Communist Party (SACP) stands with the people of Sudan in strongly condemning the military coup of Monday 25 October 2021 and equally denouncing the arbitrary detention of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and other government leaders, officials and political detainees. The SACP pledges its solidarity with the people of Sudan, the Sudanese Communist Party and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) in their struggle for unity, democracy and social emancipation. We support the Sudanese people’s resolve to unite in protest against the onslaught by the military. The actions by the military reflect the legacy of the many years of its embeddedness in, and the history of the atrocities committed with its active involvement against the people during the merciless dictatorial regime that was led by Omar Al Bashir. The SACP supports the right of the Sudanese people to seek justice.   The people of Sudan have the right to democratic sovereignty, to determine their own future freely, peacefully, and independently. The military coup as well as the declaration of the state of emergency and aggression on their will have unjustifiably limited these rights, with the far-reaching implication of expropriating them all together in practice. The SACP calls for international solidarity with the people of Sudan in their struggle for democracy and social emancipation. The African Union must intervene in the situation of Sudan to assist the people to achieve a peaceful and just transition to a government of the people by the people.
