Sudanese rebels vow to strengthen alliance with opposition, plan more military attacks


August 27, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The leadership of the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army North (SPLM/A-N) concluded a secretive meeting on Monday and outlined plans for increased military and political activities against the government in Khartoum.

The Movement’s chairman Malik Aggar addressed the meeting of the SPLM-N’s leadership council whose starting date and place have not been announced. In his address, Aggar said that his group was working on strengthening its alliance with rebel groups from the western region of Darfur in order to make it a powerful tool of political change.

Aggar was referring to the Sudanese Revolutionary Forces (SRF), a coalition the SPLM-N forged in November last year with three rebel groups from Darfur and vowed concerted military efforts to overthrow the government of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP).

The SPLM-N leader, in statements sent to Sudan Tribune, said that their meeting is going to devise a meticulous plan for forging alliances between SRF and political opposition groups in Khartoum in order to achieve change.

The SPLM-N leadership meeting was held under the motto “unifying the opposition work and toppling the regime.” It included senior SPLM/A-N representatives as well as representatives of student affiliates and refugees from South Kordofan and Blue Nile States, where the group has been fighting government forces since last year.

Mainstream political groups in Sudan, mainly the National Umma Party (NUP) and the Democratic Unionist Party (NUP), have been avoiding association with the SPLM-N and SRF with their leaders expressing concerns over the possibility of total state collapse in the event of violent change.

In his speech, Agar held all the regimes that have ruled Sudan responsible for all country’s conflicts. He went on to say that the SPLM-N intends to address the errors of the past by holding a constitutional conference and reorganising the Sudanese states on new basis to be predicated on the will of the people.

He also reiterated that his group advocates the establishment of a confederation with neighbouring South Sudan after toppling the NCP. The confederation, according to Agar, will enable the existence of two independent states and ensure their viability through political and economic coordination as well as soft borders allowing citizens to co-exist and serve common interests.

Khartoum accuses the SPLM-N of being unwilling to sever its historical ties with the ruling party of South Sudan, SPLM, which Khartoum also accuses of supporting the rebels who fought as part of its army before South Sudan secession last year.

“The Summer Attack”

In the same SPLM-N meeting, the group’s chief of staff and deputy chairman Abdel Aziz Adam Al-Hilu revealed that their forces in collaboration with SRF factions are preparing a major military offensive codenamed “The Summer Attack” against government forces.

“Our preparations are underway on full swing to conduct joint SRF military operations that will be unprecedented” Al-Hilu said. He added that “The Summer Attack” will rock the pillars of the regime.

Al-Hilu claimed that their upcoming operation cannot fail because “they are aware of the military, economic and political situation of the NCP.” He described the NCP as an arrogant and despotic gang that is responsible for the outbreak of war because it sought to disarm SPLM/A-N fighters in South Kordofan and Blue Nile without holding the popular consultation process as stipulated in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

Meanwhile, the SPLM-N’s secretary-general Yasir Arman said that the leadership meeting took a number of important decisions but he declined to reveal them.

Arman expressed confidence that their group will liberate Sudan on the basis of their new Sudan vision which recognises the reality of the country’s diversity. He said that the NCP was experiencing its worst days in light of the upsurge of violence in Darfur and the outbreak of anti-government demonstrations in more than 40 villages and cities in the north.

Arman also touched on their ongoing negotiations with the government in Addis Ababa, saying that the SPLM-N’s strategy for the next rounds will focus on supporting “the demands of Sudanese people for democracy, change and hopes of decent existence”.

The next round of talks between the government and SPLM-N is due to be held in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on 3 September following the end of the funeral of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi who in the past played part in bridging the gap between the two sides.

Previous rounds failed to achieve any progress but the two sides are negotiating on the basis of their 28 June 2011 agreement which the Sudanese government disavowed.

      What a lie! Taking about Arabs being majority in Sudan. Fool, let me see where are u going to get a visa from to enter Sudan after the falls of NCP? This is Cush Revolution? The Republic of Cush is about to flourish same way Cush Kingdoms were. Remember Al-Andolus Revolution. Poor devil, u think Sudan is going to be the same as in the past. We gave u everything but u never had a grace of Allah.

    I don’t think this plan will succeed as been revealed to the devil NCP. Agar and his political party should be careful otherwise what was posted should end in desperate to the SPLM/A-N.

      what a funny joke mr idiot, "SOUTH BEING FORCE TO CUT OFF ALL TIES" you are still dreaming on your bed, but be aware that it is the South who will force you to abundant your rebel support to element like Yauyau in South Sudan.

    Oh my Goodness, look at Malik Aggar picture and see how this man is really fat and overweight!!
    How will he be able to fight SAF in the jungle and uses the Guerrilla tactic of hide-attack-run?
    I think he can’t walk without the stick "Aokaz" that he holds, he uses it to scare Arman & Al-hilo, also as remote control to deploy his gangsters in S Kordofan & BN from Juba!

      Agar is a 1st Lt General, which means he doesn’t need to be in the front line, do you know anything about anything or just racism and bigotry!
      How do you think Bashir who can’t even walk straight or without a walking stick kills civilians in Darfur, SK & BN... why don’t you keep your Arabism and give up the three areas, is that simple enough for you?

      How has the appearance affected his words, though his weight exceed a 1001 pounds, so long as Agar speaks and reasons diligently, we’ll follow and respect him. How about your Bashir who’s murdered more than 500,000 Sudanese on the basis of their color, who’s smarter, a killer or a fat man? I don’t need your answer anyway, since I know it!

    SPLM-N is using same tactics of SPLM ,THEY usually exagerate their poor capabilities before any negotiations with the NCP , unfortunately they succeed in their objectives as NCP only wants to remain in power by any mean.

    Bravo, you are absolutely wright. We gave them everything: land, women, and life, but they never had the grace of God and now the Republic of Cush is about to be reborn again. Barbaric invaders have forgotten how Spain and Portugal kicked them out of Al-Andalus. We are going to do the same thing. Sudan Revolutionary Front Owyeeeeeeee.

    ROSS cant let this chance slip away. we need to co-ordinate with these rebels and give them what they need. a line of COMMS should be open so we know what they are doing and how we can help. I’m sure the guys at MI(military Intelligence) already have plans. if this is done right, we could see Bashir and his generals on "ice" sooner than expected.

    What comrade Abdul-Aziz had said is the only main ways of disciplining sudan (NCP)otherwise we would be defeated later on .How many times did sudan defies agreement? Let it be the last war in sudan that will solve all the roots cause of constant wars .Let us forget our selves but we sacrifice for upcoming generation at least to find better life in their home land.
