SRF rebels develop military plans to support protests across Sudan


September 30, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - The chairman of the rebel Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) Malik Agar said Monday that they directed the joint military command to prepare military plans in order to enhance the popular uprising and topple Bashir’s regime.

Agar issued a statement hailing the anti-government protests which started last Monday after the removal of subsidies on fuel and basic commodities. Police and security agents fired tear gas, rubber bullets and live ammunition on the protesters.

The government said 33 people were killed while activists said their number is over 200 victims. What is certain that the authorities sought since the first hours to violently repress the demonstrations.

"The Revolutionary Front was and still preparing for the next summer (military) operations. The SRF leadership took into account in its current meeting the ongoing developments triggered by September Uprising and directed the joint military command to consider and develop a military plan including all what could enhance the peaceful uprising and accelerate the process of change", said Agar is a statement released on Monday.

“The current uprising changed the balance of power and ended forever partial solutions, as the fall of the regime is the only remaining path”, he further stressed.

The Sudanese rebel alliance, including three groups from Darfur region and the SPLM-N, rejects separate talks with the National Congress Party government and demand a comprehensive process that leads to dismantle the regime of president Omer Al-Bashir.

The rebel leader added that they successfully contacted all the friends of Sudan, international organisations as well as influential international and regional countries to mobilise wider front of solidarity with the Sudanese people.

The political leadership of the rebel front is holding a meeting outside the country to discuss political, military and organizational matters related to the coalition.

SRF spokesperson, Abu El-Gasim Imam, issued last week a statement supporting the peaceful demonstrations and warned that they would not stand idly by if the regime continues the bloody crackdown on the protesters.

Reports from Khartoum since last week say the government deployed heavily armed troops to protect strategic positions.

Observers say the violent repression of protests aimed to prevent the development of demonstrations across the country as the regime fears that such situation may push the rebels to control different regions or moving directly to the capital.

    NCP is in trouble. Sudan is a very rich country but the problem is that all the Areas in Sudan that produce resources are control By SRF or the rebels. IF SRF is in power in Sudan. Sudan will witness the most and the better economic development in African History. Because he Sudanese themselves will have total freedom and democracy. Resource will be shown on the TV all days to let the people know.
