Khartoum- Anticipation, caution and fears of confronting the security services are met with great enthusiasm in conjunction with the “million martyrs” called for by the coordination of the resistance committees in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and the states today, Thursday.
The million is launched with 3 banners within it indicating the multiplicity of its goals among those adhering to the three no’s: “No negotiation, no partnership, no legitimacy”, and another in support of the Forces of Freedom and Change-Central Council rejecting the political declaration signed between the Sovereign Council Chairman Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok , to pressure the latter to return to his incubator, and the third banner is carried by the supporters of Hamdok.
The “Million of Martyrs” comes after the bloodshed that has taken place in the streets of Khartoum since the measures taken by the army chief, Al-Burhan, on October 25, and in rejection of the political declaration that returned Hamdok to the presidency of the government, and the protesters see it as a dedication to Al-Burhan’s procedures.
The resistance committees in Khartoum and the states with their coordination – which exceeded 30 coordination – lead the opposition scene along with the Sudanese Professionals Association by adopting protest calls, organizing millions and night demonstrations in neighborhoods, placing barriers on internal roads and main streets, and accusing the security services of targeting its leadership with arrests to paralyze the resistance movement.
After the opposition forces gathered around the charter of the Declaration of the Forces of Freedom and Change signed in January 2019, the political conflict within the opposition forces and the divisions among its ranks resulted in other pacts put forward by influential forces in the street. After the Sudanese Professionals Association put forward what it called the political declaration proposal to complete the December revolution. The first – which contained 15 articles and called in its introduction to the downfall of the Military Council – the resistance committees’ coordinators are trying to get around a unified charter after the resistance committees’ coordinators in the capital put forward 3 charters.
Opposition vision Omdurman
The Omdurman Committees Coordination presented a vision of the resistance last October 27, after the “coup” by rejecting it, not negotiating, participating, and giving it any legitimacy.
She explained that the recent political agreement divided the opposition into 3 blocs: a bloc that supports the forces of freedom and change, a bloc that supports Hamdok, and another against the council and Hamdok, which is non-partisan, noting that the charter you proposed was discussed with the Sudanese Professionals Association.
The charter proposed by the Omdurman Coordination calls for the creation of independent and young leaders, the formation of a revolutionary Legislative Council, non-recognition of any specific Legislative Council, cooperation with independent professional and community revolutionary forces, and then the formation of a transitional government formed by the field resistance.
As for the head of the Central Council of the Sudanese Congress Party, Abdul Qayyum Awad Al-Sayed, he confirms to Al Jazeera Net his party’s principled position rejecting the “coup” that isolated freedom and change, the main partner in the constitutional document.
Awad Al-Sayed considered that the political agreement is not based on any legitimate constitutional merits, and that what resulted from it is invalid, including the return of Hamdok to head the government, and the authorities are still arresting two ministers who are members of the Sudanese Congress Party, Minister of Presidential Affairs Khaled Omar and Minister of Industry Ibrahim Sheikh , among other detainees.
He said that his party will continue to resist what he called the coup, and will work to restore the hijacked transitional period, and that it will use all the tried and tested peaceful means.
At a time when the political declaration signed between Al-Burhan and Hamdok on November 21, this year, found wide regional and international welcome, but it was met with great internal opposition.
Adel Khalafallah, the official spokesman for the Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party, the leader in Freedom and Change, the Central Council, says that the popular awareness sensed the danger of a “coup” by Al-Burhan from an early age, so a broad front began to form against it.
Khalafallah described the political agreement as full of contradictions and legitimized the measures taken by the proof, explaining that the introduction to the agreement clearly indicates the recognition of those measures, and that what was stated in it is consistent with the speech of the proof in the military armored area.
He said that his party believes that the agreement enshrines the authority of the individual and reproduces the method of domination over the people in the name of the army.
Khalafallah considered that the multiplicity of centers of resistance to the “coup” is not isolated from the outcomes that the broad popular front reached during the transitional period.
He said that there is a consensus that the weakness of the institutions of the transitional period and their failure to complete them led to their showing without political and economic ambition, and that the divisions within the forces of freedom and change led to a multiplicity of centers of resistance.
But he described this as evidence of vitality and health, and that the national alignment that aims at the country’s unity, peace, freedom and transformation into a democratic system will return stronger and will continue to confront those who want to impede the country’s progress and stand firmly against them.
