Resistance committees are the guardians of Sudan’s revolution

A Leader in the Forces for Freedom and Change FCC , Sati ‘Al-Hajj,
affirmed that the Resistance Committees are the real stakeholders
involved in monitoring the implementation of  December Revolution
program.

Alhaj said that the resistance committees are a “red line”, and that
their setting up of barricades in the streets is a natural matter, and
not an escalation in light of a revolution that will not end with the
ouster of Omar al-Bashir, warning at the same time that there are
parties that want to distort the experience of these committees.

Following the formation of the revolutionary government in Sudan, the
country witnessed several processions, the last of which was the
procession organized by the Resistance Committees in Khartoum, last
Monday, August 17th,in  which they marched up to to the headquarters
of the Council of Ministers.

The above-mentioned  processions demand the restructuring of the
security services and the trial of the former regime figures , those
involved in the dispersal of the sit-in in front of the army
headquarters in Khartoum, during June 2019 as well as   formation of
the Legislative Council.

Stakeholders

Prime Minister, Dr. Abdullah Hamdok failure to address the
processions, resulted in a situation of unfairness that resulted in
clashes between  demonstrators and the regular forces , where a  tear
gas was used to disperse the processions.
Alhajj believed that the Resistance Committees are the real
stakeholders involved in monitoring the implementation of the
revolution program that  stipulated in the constitutional document.

Attorney Sateh Alhaj  described the regular forces treatment of  the
processions as isolated and unacceptable, ruling out at the same time
allowing these agencies to repeat such a behavior.

Distorting the experience

Lawyer Alhaj defended the continuation of the Resistance Committees to
protect the “revolution”, in light of the presence of parties he said
were trying to distort this new and unique experience.

Chancellor  of the Red Sea University, Professor Hassan Bashir, said
that Hamdok’s call to the Resistance Committees  Saturday, on the
occasion of the first  anniversary of the transitional government
formation , to the necessity of creative thinking in the course of the
revolution, and to invest its energies to face the challenges of
construction and reconstruction, to exercise  patience and use  wisdom
in managing the dialogue towards goals That brings together the
components of the government, eased the tension and brought about a
calm.

The Real demands

Hassan defended the demands of the Resistance Committees, which he
said are specific and clear demands in their statements and raised
since the date of last June 30, and linked to the revolution by the
evidence of their chants.

Academician Hassan ruled out, in a statement to “Darfur 24,” the
penetration of the resistance committees, who said that they are real
revolutionaries and it is difficult to employ them by the elements of
the former regime.

Message to the government

Hassan advised the government to conduct a dialogue with the
committees because they belong to  the revolution, and to understand
the motives of their procession, given the fact that they protest in a
civilized manner.

In August of last year, Sudan witnessed the beginning of a
transitional period that would last for 39 months, ending with
elections..
