comunistaWe, the undersigned communist and workers parties, express our support for and solidarity with the struggle of the Sudanese people against the dictatorial regime, for democracy and social progress.

Since the beginning of the mass peaceful demonstrations that swept the country the dictatorial regime has unleashed its repressive machine, using excessive force, killing over 40 protesters, injuring hundreds and detaining over one thousand people, including leading opposition figures and activists, Communists and democrats. Furthermore, it directed its violent repressive actions against students, women, activists, professionals and journalists.

Sudanese CP ArabicComrade Fathi Alfadl, member of the Political Bureau of the Sudanese Communist Party and its official spokesman, was arrested this morning in Khartoum by the security forces of the dictatorial regime. There is deep concern for his safety and health.

In an escalation of the regime’s repressive campaign, as mass demonstrations continue since the popular uprising began on 19th December 2018, scores of communists and democratic activists were arrested today.

Communist and workers’ parties issued a common solidarity statement for the Sudanese CP, while the spokesman of the Sudanese CP, Fathi Afadl was arrested yesterday.

The appeal for the intensification of international solidarity with the Sudanese CP was responded by communist and workers’ parties yesterday. On the same day, the official spokesman of the CP Fathi Alfadl was arrested by the security forces of the regime.

On January 2, the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Sudanese CP had issued a statement on the popular uprising against the regime in Sudan. Thousands had marched on New Year’s Eve through the capital Khartoum chanting "The people want to overthrow the regime", "Freedom, Justice, the revolution is the people’s choice". The march was called by the Professional Alliance of trade unions, marked the 14th day of continued mass protest actions against the dictatorial regime.

- Thousands have marched on New Year’s Eve through the capital Khartoum chanting "The people want to overthrow the regime", "Freedom, Justice, the revolution is the people’s choice". The march called by the Professional Alliance of trade unions, marked the 14th day of continued mass protest actions against the dictatorial regime. The peaceful march was met with excessive force by the security forces with live ammunition. Reports speak of five dead and scores were injured as snipers targeted protesters from the rooftops. Arrests included two leaders of the Professional Alliance, and the chairman of the United Unionist Party.

The Sudanese Communist Party declares its support to the peaceful demonstrations against the regime.

Last week, the people of Sudan took to the streets in peaceful demonstrations demanding an end to the bankrupt economic policies of the dictatorial regime and the repeal of all the recent measures based on the IMF instructions. During the mass actions and peaceful demonstrations that have been taking place in major cities all around the country for days, hundreds of demonstrators have been detained, including Hanadi Fadl, member of the Political Bureau of the Sudanese Communist Party. After the security forces received the order to "shoot to kill," by December 22, more than forty innocent demonstrators had been killed.

The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing 95 million workers in 130 countries all over the globe, expresses its internationalist solidarity with the workers and the people of Sudan, who have been organizing mobilizations since December 19th 2018.

A dramatic increase in the number of deaths from Ebola is recorded in DR Congo, with about 200 people dead until now.

About half of the victims of the new epidemic of the virus that has recently broken out in the DRC are in Benji, in the North Kivu region.

comunistaThe Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) has received information that the royal Swaziland police today (12 November 2018) arbitrarily detained the Branch Chairperson of the Swaziland National Union of Students (SNUS) at the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT), Comrade Mxolisi Motsa.

He was detained immediately after being served with a suspension letter by the management of LUCT, together with six other students who had been suspended for partaking in student struggles, a matter which the Communist Party will be pursuing further.

Comrade President of the ETUF,

Comrades participants,

   Given the very limited available time for this statement, and on behalf of the workers of the DR Congo, our country, we want to convey to you our greetings and thanks for having thought of us and for inviting us to participate in this important activity about the workers’ movement in Africa in the 21st century.

   In principle,  it is a matter of awareness that we must have as Africans today, an awareness of what Africa should be tomorrow, an awareness so that Africa stop being  a tank of raw materials where it is the multinationals and the imperialists who must utilize them, while the populations live in poverty, and where the exploitation of man by man is established as a lifestyle, and where the wars are becoming common place in order to exploit, to plunder the raw materials and thus leaving the peoples of Africa in distress.
