December 1, 2009 (LONDON) — Darfur rebel groups announced today the arrival of 55 commanders to Libya to attend a unity meeting they plan to hold there.

The Sudan Liberation Movement Revolutionary Forces (SLM-RF) said today the purpose of this meeting is to develop a comprehensive strategy with all categories of the people of Darfur before to take part in the peace process in Doha.

The group which is composed of some factions is established on August 30 in Tripoli with the support of the Libyan government. The Kufra meeting aims to reunite more groups who had resolved to meet inside Darfur before to unite.

However some groups such as the SLM of Ahmed Abdelshafi reject the idea and insist on the need to be inside Darfur near their troops and supporters.

SLM-RF leading member Mahgoub Hussein said in a statement released today that the democratic political parties would be invited to attend the meeting in order to address the political crisis in Sudan and discuss issues of crucial interest as elections, census results, and the rights of the people of Darfur as well as building a common position towards the International Criminal Court to bring justice in western Sudan.

The SLM-RF includes: Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLM/A)-Field Leadership, SLM/A-Unity Leadership, SLM/A-Juba of Mohamed Saleh Harba, SLM/A General Line, and SLM/A led by Khamis Abakar.

Besides the SLM-Abdel Shafi, URF of Idriss Abu Garda and URFF of Yousif Ibrahim Izat refuse to join the new group and maintain the need to hold their meeting in Darfur.

    The strategy of SLM-RF supposed be unified elements towards all Darfuri rebel groups.
    Also, it might be good that to take a place with JORDAN’s capitol before launching into Doha, Qatar.
    The King Hussein of Jordan would aware of it and works together with Libya’s Muammer Khaddafi’s goal of Darfuri Peace Initiatives.

      The International Community should not engage itself and waste time and resources in this born dead unification of the internet movements and cell phone commanders.Instead,it suppose to put pressure on the NCP to stop the ongoing killing of the innocent people.Any unification process is doomed to fail,so long as it’s final aim is Doha peace talks as the process is widely rejected.Meanwhile;why should people of Darfur pushed to the peace while people are still dying and the CPA is falling apart.If the National Congress Party is sincere a bout any peace process let them stop the killing and prove their sincerity with the already dying CPA.

        DEAR DARFURIANS,

        WHY DON’T YOU UNITE AND FIGHT THE ARABS TO GETHER.

        YOU WILL BE DEFEATED IF YOU ARE NOT UNITED.

        GET IT RIGHT BROTHERS WE ARE ALL FOR YOUR VICTORY.

        THE SO CALLED ARABS IN THE SUDAN UNDERSTAND ONLY ONE LANGUAGE ...THE BULLET. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR STRUGGLE.

        YOUR AFRICAN BROTHER
        PATRICE
