September 12, 2016 (KHARTOUM) - The rebel Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM-AW) led by Adel-Wahid al-Nur has pledged to continue its work to “uproot” the regime to achieve the dream of the Sudanese people.

SLM-AW is not part of the African Union mediated peace talks in Darfur. The rebel group rejects negotiating a peace agreement with Khartoum government, unless the government militias are disarmed and displaced civilians return to their original areas after ensuring their protection.

In a statement on the occasion of the Eid al-Adha “Festival of the Sacrifice” issued on Monday, al-Nur vowed to stick to their “revolutionary principles and values” until removing the regime and throwing it “at the dustbin of history”.

He also pledged to hand over the regime’s “criminal” leaders to the international justice and to establish a state that is based on equal citizenship and allows collective and individual freedoms.

Al-Nur called on the political and armed opposition as well as all forces of change to unite and engage in joint work to uproot the regime and establish “the Sudan that everyone dreams of”.

“We tried to engage in negotiations and dialogues to reach settlements with the regime but all [our] attempts had failed because the regime didn’t abide by [the agreements],” he said.

He pledged to keep the promise for the martyrs and the SLM-AW military and political sectors and all Sudanese, wishing the Sudanese people happy Eid al-Adha.

The Sudanese army and its allied militias have been fighting a number of armed movements in Darfur since 2003.
