The World Peace Council is deeply concerned with the ongoing armed conflict and clashes in Sudan for more than one week under which hundreds of innocent civilians lost their lives and thousands are injured. The fierce power struggle between factions of the ruling generals, between heavily armed militias, cannot hide the interests of the foreign forces backing the clashes, including imperialist powers and reactionary Arab regimes.
This armed conflict has nothing to do with the aspirations of the Sudanese people who suffered for decades long under dictatorial regimes and now under the rivalry of competing factions of the military.
The WPC demands the immediate ceasefire, the exit of armies and militias from cities, and providing urgent humanitarian assistance under UN supervision to the civilian population. The further escalation will create an explosive situation for Sudan and the whole region.
The WPC expresses its solidarity with the people of Sudan, a poor people in an extremely rich in natural resources country, and salutes the peace loving forces, particularly the Sudanese Peace and Solidarity Council, a member of the WPC Secretariat. The WPC supports the struggle of the Sudanese people for freedom, peace, social justice and deep changes so that the people will become the real masters of their fortunes.
We also support their calls to bring to justice those responsible for igniting this war and the perpetrators of crimes and human rights violations against the Sudanese people.
We call upon all peace-loving forces in the world to raise their voices and intensify solidarity with the Sudanese people and the anti-imperialist peace loving forces against this bloody war, and support their heroic struggle to achieve people’s power by establishing fully democratic civil rule.
The WPC Secretariat 28th April 2023
