Our Sudanese allies have come together to denounce the violence perpetrated by the Sudanese government.  Below you will find their message and petition. Please sign and circulate widely amongst your respective networks.

September 2013 saw hoards of people taking to the streets of Sudan in protest, sparked by the government’s lift on fuel subsidies in the already impoverished country.  Sudanese police and intelligence forces shot more than two hundred people dead.  The fact that the authorities’ guns were aimed at people’s chests and heads indicates that the aim was to "shoot to kill."  

On Monday October 21st Elsafie DafAllah and Hyatham Karar will hold a hunger strike in front of the White House (October 21st-25th).
