National Liberation Battles and Ongoing Transformations Inside and Outside Sudan


By Saad Mohamed Abdullah
Global scenes and positions appear astonishingly flipped, reaching a point where nations feel widespread frustration. As we sense the Sudanese people’s anger towards colonial aggression escalating, alongside a global surge in student activism against injustice, it’s clear that despite varied locations, the oppressor remains the same. There’s no vaccine but the struggle itself. Attempts to thwart our efforts and distort truth by hindering Sudanese movements globally only result in futile maneuvers. This undermines longstanding international relations, exposing those evading truth and crucial discussions on oppressed peoples’ urgent issues. Tomorrow, our country’s bleeding will cease, revealing the falsehoods of invaders who deliberately kill our people under the fire of rebellious Rapid Support Forces militias.
It’s imperative to recall the valor of the Sudanese people and soldiers, as chronicled in Sudanese and African history. We recall this long struggle to remind the wicked that past events will repeat unless confronted. Our ancestors resisted colonization campaigns across Sudan and Africa, fueling enduring revolutions for freedom, peace, independence, self-sovereignty, and national identity. There was no defeat written in the times our people wielded swords to defend their homeland. How can our enemies imagine defeating our people today?
Logic and ethics dictate the world should listen and heed the government’s narrative regarding the external aggression against our country and people, not vice versa. However, experiences show a decline in justice levels regarding the Sudanese issue and other oppressed peoples. Relying on fabricated narratives and biased reports only complicates issues further. Standing with truth and reason remains the key to solving complex problems, garnering respect from governments and international bodies before global populations.
The Sudanese government fulfills its duty nationally, protecting its people, land, resources, and safeguarding the future from plunderers seeking to erase its identity without justification. Defending Sudan’s land, people, and wealth is a national obligation for the armed forces, their supporters, and free civilians. Everyone will undertake this duty at all times.
The Sudanese government has a clear operational plan to address the current crisis. It has shared this plan with friendly governments and regional and international organizations genuinely interested in listening to logical voices and objective discourse. The state affirms openness to dialogue on viable solutions, provided they preserve the dignity of the people and respect Sudan’s sovereignty. Why do militias and their global allies insist on justifying arms races instead of engaging in dialogue, unless they harbor malicious agendas they seek to enforce by coercion?
The government’s openness in its relations with other nations is evident. Recent days witnessed flourishing relations with the People’s Republic of China and a visit from a Russian delegation led by Mikhail Bogdanov, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and Special Envoy to the Middle East and Africa. There’s also openness to Libya, South Sudan, Egypt, and Eritrea in economic cooperation, cross-border trade, and maintaining national security across all borders. Sudan’s Foreign Minister, Ambassador Hussein Awad Ali, participated in the Third Forum for Arab Cooperation with Central Asia and Azerbaijan in Doha, Qatar, emphasizing the importance of understanding between Sudan and its counterparts in Qatar and Bahrain.
Assessing Sudanese diplomatic transformations alongside the magnitude of internal and external war developments necessitates a logical reliance on establishing a sound state foundation. It entails harnessing all energies toward combating daily life’s harshness with the strength of patience. This enables engaging in liberation battles until decisively defeating colonial agents and combating projects that undermine Sudan’s national economy. Continuously seeking new avenues with friends and partners worldwide is crucial for achieving peace, stability, and Sudan’s reconstruction.
We must draw inspiration from the national liberation struggle’s history and symbols of Sudanese independence, such as Abdel Fadil El Maz and Ali Abdel Latif, as well as experiences like Agostinho Neto in Angola, Sédar Senghor in Senegal, Nelson Mandela in South Africa, and Dr. John Garang de Mabior in South Sudan. Unifying and directing all possible energies toward defending the land, honor, and future is essential. Only through unity and collective struggle can we build a state of peace, citizenship, development, and form a unified national army. All national forces must elevate their voices freely, calling for an end to terrorism militia funding from all governments regionally and globally.
