Today's Protest Coincides With the Anniversary of the 1985 Revolution.
On April 6, 2019 at 12pm EST, the Sudanese American community and human rights activists will demonstrate at the United Nations, starting at 7th Avenue and W 40th Street and then marching to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at245 E 47th Street where the program begins at 2pm EST.
This march will provide a forum for the Sudanese American Community and others living in the United States to stand in solidarity with the people of Sudan in their quest for freedom, peace and justice and to support their efforts to stop the atrocious murderous regime of Omar al-Bashir.  
Since December 13, 2018, thousands of Sudanese have peacefully protested in Sudan.  Dozens have been killed by the regime while hundreds have been detained, tortured, and some of have disappeared without a trace.  Absent international pressure, the world will continue to witness tyrannical and violent suppression by the Sudan regime in violation of the Sudanese citizens’ rights to peacefully assemble and protest.
The march aims to urge the United Nations Security Council, the United States government and other members of the international community to take these immediate actions:
·         Condemn the Sudan government for gross human rights violations.
·         Pressure the regime to stop attacking, arresting and torturing protesters, including the media, and to release all detainees and grant them access to lawyers, family, and medical care.
·         Pressure the government of Sudan to lift the state of emergency.
·         Pressure Bashir to peacefully transfer power to a transitional government that represents all of Sudan in order to respond to the people’s demands for a solution that meets their aspirations and             brings lasting stability.
·         Launch an independent investigation into the attacks on protesters and hold those responsible accountable for their actions.
The Sudanese American Community represents the Diaspora from all regions of Sudan who are united in their commitment to end genocide and all state-sponsored crimes and to build genuine peace in Sudan.
