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...

This is not #Kony2012. This is #Himedti2019.

This is the warlord widely blamed for #SudanMassacre, & arguably the most powerful man in Sudan right now.

According to Amnesty International, #SudanMassacre is a result of the Rapid Support Forces bringing to Khartoum its history of murders, rapes, looting, and other crimes, from Darfur.

Doctors believe paramilitaries carried out more than 70 rapes during an attack on a protest camp in #Khartoum a week ago.

Urgent Humanitarian Appeal
Since the massacre of June 3rd, 2019, the Military Council and Janjaweed Militias have continued to murder and terrorize unarmed citizens across Sudan. They have used the most brutal means including rape, beating, and opening fire on unarmed citizens with the intent of killing
This has resulted in the loss of more than a hundred innocent lives. It has been difficult to quantify the actual number of victims. This, in part, is due to the intentional shutdown of the internet services in the country by the Military Council, which

****What is going on in Sudan?****

Thread.
I'll explain quite briefly what has actually been going on in Sudan, as many people are unaware or don't understand the situation. It's been covered by the media and innocent people are getting killed for no reason.
1. So we’ll go back 6 months ago to Dec 2018, Omar Al-Bashir was the President of Sudan since 1989 so for the past 30yrs. In Dec, the government started making cuts to bread and fuel – they stopped people from taking money out, they increased prices of food + goods etc.

Amnesty International on Thursday called for international action against #Sudan’s new military rulers and condemned the government’s Rapid Support Forces for what it called a “murderous rampage” against protesters this week. uk.reuters.com/article/uk-sud…

After the heroic sacrifices of valiant & ordinary citizens, the leadership of @_AfricanUnion is about to sit in idle complicity as the soldiers in the Transitional Military Council (TMC) launch a violent & bloody #SudanCounterRevolution. #Africans everywhere shd weigh in
Here is the #SitRep: Since the end of last month, the soliders in the TMC have been launched a rolling #InternetShutdown on Khartoum with the design to facilitate a #SudanCounterRevolution by constraining & ultimately cutting off the ability of the protests to co-ordinate
At the beginning of the week, on Monday, 3 June, about 05:00hrs Khartoum time, the TMC sent 1000s of armed Rapid Support Forces (RSF) soldiers, the Janjaweed militia & men in police uniforms using RSF trucks to disperse the sit-in.

For everyone in the international community, a quick word picture about what happend in #sudan:
⭕Imagine your contry was ruled by a military man(#Albashir) that came via coup for 30 years.
⭕Drove your economy into the ground and put almost your entire ppl in poverty.
⭕Whilst doing so this ruler violently cracks down on any whiff of opposition
⭕Systematically dismantles your constitution and institutions
⭕Replaces any decent govt figureheads with gutless yes men
⭕Starts a genocide/ethnic cleansing in an entire state of your country #darfur
⭕to carry out said genocide this military man decides to employ a militia(#janjaweed) of Chadian origins(who were originally bandits, and donkey/camel thieves) lead by a nomadic man (#hemidty) and arms them to the teeth and directs them at their target.

Vous n'en avez probablement pas entendu parler dans les médias, alors permettez-moi de vous raconter ce qui est en train de se passer en ce moment au #Soudan :
Vous vous rappelez comment des jeunes femmes et de jeunes hommes ont forcé le dictateur Al-Bashir à quitter le pouvoir il y a près de deux mois avec un sit-in massif ?

Le sit-in n'a jamais vraiment pris fin.
Elle dure depuis 52 jours et se poursuivra jusqu'à ce qu'une transition complète vers un gouvernement civil soit achevée.

The AU, the Troika and the larger International Community, must NOW DEMAND that the Rapid Support Forces leave Khartoum and all other populated Metropolitan areas in #Sudan IMMEDIATELY. There is no need for them to be there, and they must be demobilised.

The regular Sudanese Army, the SAF, and the Police should NOW be left to do their jobs in Khartoum and in all other civilian areas; thereby protecting people and all property.
The RSF are becoming more and more unstable because they are unprofessional and inadequately trained.
There will be a massacre of innocent civilians soon, with more and more death. The likelihood of a direct firefight between the Rapid Support Forces of Hemedti and the elements of the regular Sudanese army, the SAF, who have been wanting to protect the civilians, is NOW high.

“A drunk soldier using his own personal weapon’” is allegedly the cause of the poor innocent PREGNANT woman’s death? Is that really the very best thing that the TMC could have come up with to explain the cause of the killing within an allegedly Islamic, Shariah Law, country?

Al-Burhan visits #SouthSudan

After visiting Egypt & then the UAE, the Head of #Sudan’s TMC, Abdul Fattah al-Burhan, is in Juba today to meet with the President of South Sudan, Salva Kiir. He was received by Tut Kew Gatluak, the country’s Presidential Advisor on Security Affairs.
So who exactly is Tut Kew Gatluak? Aside from holding the position of Presidential Advisor on Security Affairs, how many other high profile positions does he hold in South Sudan’s government? #TutKewGatluak

I came back on Friday from a week in research in Khartoum, where I looked into recent political dynamics. Here are some thoughts on the #SudanUprising and its future [MEGATHREAD] 👇🇸🇩
First: the state. Bashir's ouster kept the military & security apparatus intact but the regime's internal power structure has changed significantly. The NCP appears sidelined from decision-making; NISS, though intact, seems to be under the tutelage of the military council.
Sudan is now ruled by an uneasy alliance between SAF and the RSF. With the resignation of 3 members of the military council last week, all members are now senior SAF officers, with the exception of Hemedti. #SudanUprising
