From MENA: Urgent action update: Sudanese military launch attack against the Khartoum sit-in, many dead and injured

NEU Newham received the following message from MENA at 09h47:

Rectangular image with the words "Urgent Action" in white letters on a red background.Urgent action update: Sudanese military launch attack against the Khartoum sit-in, many dead and injured

menasolidaritynetwork

Sudanese military and militia forces are attacking the sit-in outside the Army Command in Khartoum, where thousands of protesters have gathered since 6 April to demand a peaceful transition to civilian rule, the Sudanese Professionals Association said in a statement this morning, killing and injuring many and setting tents on fire. The attack follows a general strike on 28 and 29 May after the Transitional Military Council refused to concede protesters’ call for a new sovereignty council composed of a majority of civilian members.
Solidarity is crucial – what you do in the next few hours will make a difference.

Take action now:
Email, fax or call the Sudanese Embassy. [Go here for contact details for the Sudanese embassy in London] today, condemning the attacks on peaceful protesters and demanding that the Transitional Military Council withdraws all troops and militia forces from the Khartoum sit-in and other protest sites.

Contact the foreign ministry of your government and your local member of parliament. Urge them to issue a statement condemning attacks on protesters and stating that they will hold Generals Burhan and Dagalo of the Transitional Military Council responsible for deaths and injuries to civilians.

Call on your government to stop all forms of cooperation with the TMC until those responsible for killing and injuring protesters are brought to justice.

Assessment campaign
Our system is obsessed with league tables, turning children into data points and denying them a broad, stimulating education at key stages in their development. It puts an unnecessary burden on children, parents and teachers alike.
