FFC discloses the “Plan B” efforts of the Bashir-NCP Deep State, meant to derail the #Sudan Revolution.

*Statement from The Field Action Committee of the FFC on the attempts of the former regime & their shadow battalions to drag the country into a cycle of violence.”*
“The efforts of the former regime & its shadow battalions to infiltrate the groups of revolutionaries; & to plant some members of the former regime into their midst. The Committee also learned from its sources that the regime had distributed firearms to some of these groups.”
“This dirty scheme comes from the former regime to incite violence on a large scale by pushing these groups to fire live ammunition at the citizens & the regular forces. An attempt to drag the country into a cycle of violence in order to block the great revolution of our...

With just this quote on the “negotiation process”, Malik Agar may have lost some “informed & trusted credibility” that they have accumulated for his SPLM-N faction over the past few days & weeks of their talks with the SPA & the other “non-armed members” of the FFC....
...Of course, he was PERSONALLY always going to be “asked by someone in Juba” to “return that favour” given to him wrt the TMC’s detention of his 3 SPLM-N “comrades” in Khartoum...comrades who were then deported back to Juba at “the request” of Pres. Salva Kiir; & who have now...
...been “based” in Juba ever since - hence the word “leverage”.

Incidentally, & regarding the “association & relationship” between the regimes in Khartoum & in Juba - Just WHO EXACTLY is that ever-present, & ubiquitous, “facilitator” called Tut Kew Gatluak?
What was/is his...

@fizzy_limes @AlbertoMiguelF5 @moehash1 @ReemWrites It is NOT about ”glorification of The Army”, as you may like to put it - we are South Sudanese, so why would we EVER “glorify” the “Northern Sudanese Army” that killed over 2 million Southerners for decades? It is about “reality” & about “emotionless pragmatism”.
Any Army &...
@fizzy_limes @AlbertoMiguelF5 @moehash1 @ReemWrites ...Police uniforms that were “witnessed” participating on the 3rd June, were there “just for that reason”; i.e. to be “seen & witnessed participating” as part of the subsequent cover-up propaganda drive to protect the RSF, (some) NISS & the TMC.

So what exactly are the details of the agreement that’s been made between the Opposition “Forces of Freedom & Change” (FFC) and the “Transitional Military Council” (TMC) in #Sudan?…
How did it happen? What guarantees are there that the TMC (& the FFC) will honour the agreement?

Dr. Amjad Farid of the SPA & the FFC, answers:

• The agreement states that 5 civilians (members of the FFC) & 5 military persons (not conditionally members of TMC, but could be...

Burhan probably went to Uganda at this critical time for the TMC, including skipping the final negotiations with the FFC towards a Civilian-led agreement, to try & “learn just how Museveni has managed to stay in power in Uganda for over 3 decades; without having to hand over...
...power to civilians?”
Something that Museveni has managed to do for some of his rule since 1985, with International Community “military support” from even the USA?”

Short Answer - Museveni did it largely by creating “a distracting artificial threat of insecurity” in certain.. of Uganda. He then perpetuated & ratcheted-up that threat “whenever it was needed”; by using the “name” (& the mystique) of an alleged “warlord” called Joseph Kony. Someone who then became labelled as “a terrorist” in more modern-day parlance.
Kony being (allegedly) a...

The FFC & the TMC Reach Agreement on the Composition of the Civilian-led Transitional Government in #Sudan; following AU & Ethiopian mediation.

“The inevitable is ALWAYS inevitable.”


A Sovereign Council (to replace “The Presidency” during the Transitional Period) to be made up of 5 civilians & 5 military personnel. One extra civilian is to be decided upon by both the FFC & the TMC. This 6th civilian could be, but not necessarily, a retired...
...military officer.

The military will have the Chair of the Sovereign Council (SC) first for 18 months; then the civilians for the final 18 months of a three-year long Transitional Period.

An Executive will be established to run the country day-to-day, & it will be made-up...

Sudan's amazing pro-democracy movement persists despite immense violence (hundreds of deaths & rapes) from genocidal military govt, and internet blackout. They had huge protests yesterday. 1/
"Scores of protesters wounded and seven dead on Sudan's streets"…
I sent #BlueForSudan and you should probably too. If you were in the Sudanese pro-democracy movement, you'd appreciate some internet stranger solidarity right now - sort of the least we can do. 2/…
And if you don't know what this is about, have a look at @hasanminhaj Patriot Act episode on it here. Guardian also has decent coverage. 3/3

Thirty years ago today, on the 30th June, former Sudanese Dictator & President, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, was sworn into office in 1989; after a Military coup that elevated him into power.

On April 6th 2019, a popular “peaceful” civilians’ uprising & protest march...
...towards the Sudanese Army’s Military Headquarters in Khartoum, following increasing displeasure with Bashir’s failed rule for 3 decades, became quickly transformed into a mass sit-in site for the now popularly-known #SudanUprising.
Five days later on April 11th, Omer Hassan... was ousted from power by the now notorious, “Transitional Military Council” (TMC).

Amid increasingly more frustration within the TMC, who quickly began to violently show The People of Sudan that they DID NOT WANT TO HAND OVER POWER TO CIVILIANS as was demanded &...

If al-Burhan, Hamadan Daglo, Kabbashi, or any other individual within the TMC, REALLY does so desperately NOW want to enter into “Mainstream Politics” & “Nation-State Leadership” in North #Sudan, something that they have clearly wanted to do since ousting Bashir on April 11th,...
...judging by their actions afterwards (although they STILL continue to pretend that they do NOT want to do that), then why-oh-why do they NOT JUST NOW RETIRE from the Military?! They can then “formally enter into Politics”, so that this charade can stop?

It’ll bring an end to all of these kinds of ridiculous, Bashir-esque-style, 20th Century sideshows, which they are now “farcically” engaging-in more & more regularly.
Let them NOW show all 40 million Sudanese, & the larger watching World too, that they REALLY DO HAVE “lots of...

Dear @TMCSudan Members, Other Sudanese, & All of the Foreign External Actors who are STILL ROOTING FOR Omer al-Bashir & his “ruling-Arab-elites” NCP deep state,

“Fool me once (Bashir & your NCP deep state with Salah Gosh & his NISS), shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
“I do NOT need you anymore Omer & your NCP deep state. I can now make new allies out of all of those other ARMED rebel groups throughout the whole of Sudan. I can make allies of all of those who have detested your rule for decades. I can make allies of all of those who have...

@YousraElbagir & @FT - In actual reality, the Bashir-NCP regime’s “ARAB” deep state, has not been recalibrated; nor has it been renewed. No! It has actually NOW been (& once again, just like it did before with the SPLA of the Late Dr. John Garang De Mabior in the South) come...

...Africans in #Sudan, on it’s behalf.
If “Islam” is the only means of “identity-association” & loyalty that the Bashir-NCP regime’s deep state has been banking-on with Hemedti & his RSF, then it simply is not going to be enough now to maintain their “Arab-dominant rule” in...

Since Bashir’s ousting in April, this is one of the most “practically” sensible & insightful analysis from anyone, on the current crisis in #Sudan.
All individuals & organisations (both those engaged from inside #Sudan, & those engaged from outside) would do well, & be wise,... heed its content; & the warning from @_hudsonc. The consequences of NOT doing so, have already been seen via a “smaller”, but bloody, “taster” back on the 3rd June. The upcoming “main event” on the 30th June, will be even more bloody; if it is not addressed NOW in advance.
Very desperate people always do very desperate, & usually very stupid, things - & the TMC & RSF are NOW “very desperate” people.

If the FFC, with the @AssociationSd & @SCP_Sudan, show any semblance of weakness, & NOW provide some wiggle room to the TMC within any proposed “co-share” agreement, then the TMC will grab it with both hands, & then later on, widen that gap to make it more substantial... their favour. It will have put the months of sacrifices made by millions of peacefully-resisting Sudanese - who have now been killed, raped & abused by the Bashir-NCP deep state - at risk. It will be very difficult to see how the FFC will then be able to maintain their...
...legitimacy, when they say that they have the much-needed “human-resource capacity” now at hand at this critical time. That doubt from “The People” in its self, is what the TMC will then pounce upon too; & then turn it into a self-tied noose around the FFC’s own neck. That’s...

South Sudan has reiterated its interest to mediate the political stalemate between the Sudanese TMC & the group representing the protesters.

On Thurs, President Salva Kiir sent a delegation to Khartoum headed by his Security Advisor, Tut Kew...…
The team met with the military leaders and officials representing the Freedom & Change group.

Speaking to the press in Khartoum after the meeting, Tut Kew (Gatluak) said Kiir’s interest is to help restore stability in the Sudan.

“He [Kiir] said we are part of Sudan & that it is important for us to intervene & help find solutions to the current problems in Sudan, just like Sudan also helped resolve problems in South Sudan,” Tut Kew (Gatluak) said.

Very predictable....

It is strange how so many people are now beginning to ignore the shameful complicity of the Europeans & the United Nations in all of this murderous & bloody Hemedti - Janjaweed - Rapid Support Forces Mercenary - Militia mess?!
Overlooking it whilst we all point our fingers fully upon Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates & Egypt. Yes, the Arabs are certainly responsible for much that is now happening; but before them, it was the Europeans who planted & watered the seed with their other Western...

So, is there not NOW A NEED FOR THAT FULL & PRACTICAL ACCOUNTABILITY FROM THE EUROPEANS & THE UNITED NATIONS in stopping Daglo & his Mercenary Militia? Should they not be doing everything that is possible in their military power...
