International Labour Network of Solidarity and Struggle sends solidarity to the general strike and revolution.


SUDAN : Solidarity with the revolution and the general strike
Following five months of streets protesting and seven weeks of mass occupation in front of the army headquarters, the workers and people of Sudan launched a general strike with 100% support in Port Sudan, rail, oil, gold mines, air, bus, state workers, schools universities, judges, solicitors, women, youth, many sections civil society etc because the Sudan Transitional Military Council refuses to give up power.


The International Labor Network of solidarity and struggles express the complete support of its members to the general strike, and the on going revolution of the masses.


We salute the Sudanese revolution that started on 19 December 2018, which erupted after 30 years of dictatorship and genocide against Darfur, the Blue Nile and Nube Mountains. The genocide in Sudan killed 500,000 (UN figures) people and created 2.5 million refugees inside Sudan and 100s of refugee camps. The old dictator Omar Al-Bashir and others were wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes from 2009.


Since December 2018 the Sudanese diaspora have mobilised across the world. We need to support the mobilisations.


Al-Bashir had destroyed so much of the economy and society that all of Sudan, a country the size of India, started an uprising against food price increases. Bread was increasing in price every day and masses of people could not live in the old way anymore.


Demonstrations continued all over Sudan, but on 6 April at first 100s occupied the streets outside the Military HQ, that number grew to 1000s, then 10,000s and protestors joined the occupation from all over Sudan including Darfur, Atbara, a famous workers city, where the first workers union in Africa started in the 1950s – the railway workers, sent a train to the occupation other areas sent buses.


The occupation was attacked by the Rapid Response Forces with heavy weapons, and the lower and middle orders of the armed forces went to protect the occupation. The revolution got rid of al-bashir on 11 April. He was brought down because 100,000s of Sudanese took to the streets, and were organised by doctors, teachers and engineers. Dozens had been killed.


However, the central demand of the revolution is for a civilian government and the end of the regime but on 11 April the Transitional Military Council took over. The occupation continues, the revolution does not want a military government.


Solidarity to the revolution, solidarity to workers actions and the general strike


Support the aims of the general strike, and the individual unions that include:

  • End the Transitional Military Council – Civilians must govern in Sudan
    For a government of the organisations of the revolution who fight for a civilian government The revolution has the right to defend itself.
    Free all political and struggle prisoners
  • Stop the privatisation (eg Port Sudan) – Sudan, factories, mines, land etc belongs to the Sudanese
  • Decent wages and conditions for all.
  • All workers union must have legality and be free to organise (unions are still illegal)
  • Disband all the militia thugs – Trial for those who participated and ordered the killing of occupiers, demonstrators.
