UK-South Sudan relations

Juba has felt betrayed over what it perceived as bias in favor of Khartoum particularly during the sensitive oil negotiations that were aimed at restoring oil exports through Sudan. Because of a dispute on transit fees, Khartoum started seizing part of the oil to make up for uncollected duties. Juba retaliated by suspending suspended oil production altogether.

South Sudan chief negotiator Pagan Amum singled out the US and UK for being critical of Juba regarding its oil shutdown decision.

"They never talked about it though they knew it was wrong. Sudanese government was practically stealing our oil but they continued to keep quiet....[rather than] asking Khartoum to pay back what it stole” Amum told reporters last August.

Aegis Trust | Sudan Revolts | 6 July 2012

In London, 30 June 2012, activists, Darfuri and Nuba groups marched to petition British Prime Minister David Cameron for assertive diplomatic action to secure access for humanitarian relief to Sudan’s Blue Nile and the Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan - where during the past year, half a million have been driven from their homes by Sudanese Government attacks. Some 200,000 are refugees. The rest are at risk of starvation, but food aid is being blocked by Sudan.

For the first time on such a rally in London, the march was joined by Sudanese from Khartoum and across Sudan in support of anti-government protests in Khartoum calling for a change of regime - and calling for Omar Bashir, the only head of state in the World who is wanted for genocide, to go to face trial at the International Criminal Court.

The petition to 10 Downing St was supported by organisations including the Aegis Trust, Darfur Union UK, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART), Nuba Now Campaign, Nuba Mountains Solidarity Abroad, Waging Peace and Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF).
