Sudan's Forces for Freedom and Change calls for mass civil disobedience
The Sudanese opposition forces call for civil disobedience tomorrow and Wednesday after protesters were shot dead.
Today, on Monday, the Sudanese opposition Forces for Freedom and Change launched a call to start a comprehensive two-day civil disobedience, starting tomorrow, on Tuesday, in response to "the deaths of demonstrators."
In a statement on their unofficial page on Twitter, the forces indicated that the goal of civil disobedience is to gather and unify the revolutionary forces and prepare for what they described as the decisive battle to overthrow the coup authority.
The Forces of Freedom and Change issued a previous statement, yesterday, Sunday, on the United Nations initiative on Sudan, stressing "its readiness to consult with other sectors of the Sudanese forces to restore the democratic path."
The Forces of Freedom and Change also called for the establishment of an international mechanism that includes regional and international parties and includes the Troika countries, the European Union, and Sudan's neighboring countries.
Demonstrations began in Sudan and ran across the country at the invitation of the Sudanese Professionals Association and other political forces that reject the continuation of the military component of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council in power and demand civilian rule.
Today, seven anti-coup protesters were killed in Sudan during protests in the capital, according to what the Ministry of Health in Khartoum state confirmed.
The Doctors Committee announced that the death toll from the demonstrations has risen today to seven after the police used live bullets against the demonstrators, causing also many injuries and bringing the death toll to 72 since the October 25 coup led by General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan.
Also today, the opposition Forces for Freedom and Change in Sudan confirmed that they will positively deal with the initiative launched by the United Nations to invite all parties to dialogue.
