Will we allow Sudan's military and their allies, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to crush the peoples movement for democracy?
Milton Allimadi, Prof. of African History at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and founder of The Black Star News

In scenes redolent of the Arab world's 2011 pro-democracy uprisings, an emboldened grass-roots protest movement had taken root in the heart of Sudan, its center, Khartoum, when the dreaded Janjaweed militia opened fire on the unarmed, pro-democracy forces who were demanding a transition to civilian rule, after the ouster of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir. The death toll from the attack on the unarmed pro-democracy camp protestors now exceeds 100, with hundreds more injured after the Janjaweed militia opened fire on them. But the peoples resolve is strong as they continue to press for a total work stoppage. Prof. Allimadi traces the evolution of the democracy forces during the thirty year rule of the al-Bashir dictatorship, examines the conflicts amongst the military forces, the implications for the further destabilization of the region and the particular role of Saudi Arabia, the United States, Russia and China, while the push for peoples power and civilian rule continues.
