Stop the massacre in Sudan: Emergency protests in Ireland and UK

Sudanese activists have called emergency protests in London and Dublin on 4 and 8 June after the Transitional Military Council sent troops to attack protest camps killing at least 35 people and injuring hundreds.

In Sudan opposition Declaration of Freedom and Change forces have called for an open-ended strike and civil disobedience until the fall of the regime in a statement published on 3 June:

After a day of a massacre on civilians, committed by the combined forces of the Sudanese military, the Janjaweed militias (also called the ‘Rapid Support Forces’), the ‘national security’ forces and other militias, in Khartoum and other cities and towns of Sudan, the DFC declare ‘an escalation of the revolution’.”
