On the situation in Sudan

Statement of the World Peace Council

The World Peace Council expresses its deep concern and worries about the ongoing bloody war in Sudan whereas hundreds of civilians have been killed, thousands injured and more than one million people have been internally displaced or forced to flee abroad.

As we have stated on April 28, 2023, this war is a “fierce power struggle between factions of the ruling generals, between heavily armed militias, while it cannot hide the interests of the foreign forces backing the clashes, including imperialist powers and reactionary Arab regimes. This armed conflict has nothing to do with the aspirations of the Sudanese people who suffered for decades long under dictatorial regimes and now under the rivalry of competing factions of the military”.

The WPC strongly condemns the flagrant violations of human rights and the crimes against the people of Sudan. The responsible perpetrators have to be brought to justice. The WPC reiterates its solidarity with the Sudanese people and with the Sudan Peace and Solidarity Committee, member of the WPC Secretariat. We support the struggle for freedom, social justice and democratic civil rule.
