Lest we forget…

Standard

Lest we forget : those who killed 170 Sudanese, mainly youth protesting in anti-government demonstrations against the economic austerity measures, have yet to face justice. They walked away without being held accountable for their despicable actions.

Human Rights Watch 32 page report “‘We Stood, They Opened Fire’: Killings and Arrests by Sudan’s Security Forces during the September Protests, describes unlawful killings, arbitrary detentions, ill-treatment and torture of detainees, and other serious abuses committed by government security forces.”

The longer we stay silent, the more violations and atrocities this government will commit. Lets not forget Darfur (a decade ago and ongoing today) the Nuba Mountains, North Kordofan, the detention and torture of activists and outspoken opponents of the regime – the list is endless.
