SUDAN UPRISING MASTER DOCUMENT

Hi all - This is working master document with links and resources to inform yourself of what is happening in Sudan and how to support.  It is constantly going to be updated with relevant sources, funding initiatives, petition,  letters, etc.  The idea is to centralize as many resources in one place so that people can have a strong source to come back to. It’s also meant to be collaborative so that if people have more resources to share, I will add it to the document.  So please email me at yaaaladin@gmail.com and identify what kind of source you are sharing so I can organize it in its respective place.  Thank you to those who are making the effort to stay informed and act in true solidarity with this pivotal movement .

SUDAN UPRISING  as of 7/16

The Honorable ________

Office Address

United States House of Representatives/United State Senate

City, State, Zip

Dear Representative/Senator ______________:

Hello, my name is ______. As a (Sudanese) community organizer and a constituent, I am concerned about the current state of violence and military suppression in Sudan. I urge you to support an increase in funding to medical suppliers and civilian relief groups that aim to protect innocent civilians who are currently living without access to adequate medicine, shelter, food, nor internet access. I also strongly advise you to highlight the culpability of nations such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates who have sent over $3 billion in aid to the Transitional Military Council that is terrorizing innocent Sudanese children, women, and men. In the past week:

  • At least 108 demonstrators have been killed and at least 600 hundred wounded since security forces stormed a protest camp in Khartoum last Monday.
  • Violent attacks erupted in other parts of Sudan; including home invasions, violent rape, and disposal of dead bodies into the Nile River perpetrated by security forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces.
  • The Rapid Support Force and Janjaweed coalitions are responsible for these atrocities and human rights violations.
  • Hospitals are overcrowded and do not have access to enough sterile equipment, medicine, bandages and gauze, and trained staff.
  • Internet and cellphone networks have been restricted or cut off so survivors cannot reach out or expose their current state of destitution and fear.

This is not the time for silence. I demand that as my representative you do not support the military forces in Sudan and advocate for innocent civilians who are dying without access to medical aid or resources for shelter, water, food. Please make medical and safety protections a higher priority for our nation by raising awareness for the civilian organizers in Sudan. Thank you for your consideration and please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this issue further.

Sincerely,

Your Name

Your Title

Your Address

Your City, State, Zip

Your Phone Number

For Resistbot, Text the word RESIST to 50409 and then follow instructions to send the following messages:

“Freeze US government military aid to Egypt, UAE and Saudi Arabia until they cease support to the murderous military council in Sudan.”

or

“Question the Department of State and Defense on cooperation with Egypt, UAE and Saudi Arabia, which are helping the murderous military council in Sudan to kill protestors.”

or

“Demand State Department declare Sudanese Ambassador to the US persona non grata until the murderous military council in Sudan hands power over to civilians.”

Take Social Media Action!

In light of the current internet blackout and increased celebrity attention, it is essential that the Sudanese diaspora channel all of the attention Sudan is currently receiving towards specific achievable actions.

On Saturday, June 22nd we are launching a 1 day awareness and action campaign aimed at joining our 6 million+ strong Sudanese diaspora in an effort to unify all of our communities in support of the peaceful protestors and a new democratic Sudan. We turned social media blue- now let us turn the streets blue and start a ripple effect of action.

We need your help to spread the word about this campaign, and to choose one or two specific actions that you feel are the most relevant to push for in your community. And of course, please post pics with your blue outfits and signs this Saturday!
