CPS calls for end to bloody repression and immediate release of all political detainees in Sudan

Communist Party of Swaziland

The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) conveys its solidarity with the people of Sudan and condemns the Sudanese authorities’ recent bloody repression of peaceful mass demonstrations in Sudan.

The CPS calls for increased vigilance on the Sudan question following the resignation of civilian Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, after the deadly crackdown of protests, with the military now back in full control of the state.

The Sudanese people stood up on 30th December 2021 against military rule but were violently suppressed by the country’s security forces, police and Rapid Support Forces who fired live bullets and tear gas against peaceful demonstrators, killing four people and wounding more than 200.

Many leaders of the Resistance Committees were detained as part of this wave of brutal repression, in a desperate attempt to crush the mounting mass protest movement since the military coup on 25 October 2021.

The CPS extends its solidarity with the Sudanese Communist Party, which has been at the heart of these mass struggles, as well as the fighting Sudanese masses, and calls for increased international solidarity with the people of Sudan.
