The SRF Leadership Council, headed by Malik Agar issued a decision to accept the membership of the United People’s Front for Liberation and Justice, and appointed it as a member of the Council, said the SRF spokesperson Abu El-Gasim Imam in a statement emailed to Sudan Tribune.

Imam further mentioned that the rebel leadership meeting approved its new statute and the statutes of the Revolutionary Legislative Council, the Executive Office and the Joint Military Command.

The UPFLJ is a dissident fraction of the East Front which signed a peace agreement with the government brokered by Eritrea in October 2006. The group is led by Sayed Ali Abu Amna.

The signing ceremony took place on Tuesday 1 October, but Imam did not disclose the location of the meeting. The Sudanese government accuses Uganda of hosting the SRF factions.

The Sudanese rebels called to unite the opposition forces, and said they decided to prepare military plans to support the recent anti-austerity protests in the country.

    Well,SPLA-N or SRF (what ever name they called themselves,who really cares?),they are known to be racists and that lady face which appear in the picture doesn’t look like SPLA-N faces therefore her alliance with them will last soon I guess,this lady and her group are useless and unknown group in eastern Sudan!
    Faces are not matching hence this alliance is baseless!

      Ironically, those useless people seem to be gathering in Kampala where dictator Museveni is living, they chose to base their terror attack against civilians and soft target in Sudan from Kampala after thieves in Juba were forced by

        Khartoum government to kick their asses out of Juba and sent them against the wind despite they fought with them Arab/Jalaba government in Khartoum neck to neck and shoulder to shoulder but you know thieves couldn’t afford the economical war that Khartoum launched against them otherwise their boat will sink them all including SPLA-N so they decided to scarify them!

          Ironically, SPLA-N based themselves in Kampala to fight Khartoum government although there is no border between Sudan and Uganda since the south has become in the middle!
          I believe they need to build a huge bridge from Uganda and passes the south so they can attack from Uganda and then run and hide overthere, Sudan can’t accuse Juba if that bridge is in place!

            Jalabi, the SRF are not racist. They just need to put those who come to occupy Africa back to the desert. I am glad thy are now United a the really Sudanese natives. Time for Arabs to take terrorism to mecca.

            The woman in the picture is most likely from the Beja tribe; they’ve had that complexion since the days of ancient Egypt — before the Arab conquest of Kemet > Egypt. The *ancient* Egyptians* [real Egyptians] referred to the Beja as the Medjaw — their closest relatives. The Beja are indigenous and legitimate sons of the Nile valley. They have no obligations to Arabs.

    The woman in the picture is most likely from the Beja tribe; they’ve had that complexion since the days of Kemet > ancient Egypt — long before the Arab conquest of Egypt in the 7th Century A.D. The Beja are the closest relatives to the ancient Egyptians and were known to the Kemetians [real, non-Arab ’Egyptians’] as the Medjaw.
