"Sudan: anyone have AFRICAN's email?"


  

          

sorry to blast this out.

i thought I did but cant find anything.

both our countries are fucked.
so there's that.

we (s.sudan) have already gone over the edge. <- this is really a lost cause
sudan seems to be teetering.... it would be really bad.

being who i am and where i live i cannot even fathom what people's situation is like over there

but id like to try and understand atleast. it feels like an important thing developing some kind of empathy for people that are in unthinkable circumstances


i feel similarly about whats happening in Mexico but i digress

its not safe. that's pretty much the bottom line
they dont really have internet access, either- so there's that too.

i dont know if it's localized to *some* parts of Khrtm- cant really get a sense of the scale of things.
and its hard to determine from the news (like if you read about south sudan you'd think its war everywhere when its really not - but you'd have to know the country to *get* this)


hoping for the best though.

(who is a terrible human being and deserves a horrible fate)

through mass protests, demonstrations etc
i think we were all hoping for a peaceful transition to civilian rule

but...they set up a military council to run the country and then elections to be held in 9 months
there's been negotiations btw the protesters and the council
these broke down...
the head of the military council is an awful human being
(if you know anything about the militia in darfur - he was the head for a long time -
these are the people in khartoum right now
and the ones responsible for all these deaths

its completely unsafe
and with Sudan- things can escalate without warning

----
s.sudan
is just fucked
and talking about it just gets me angry
a friend of mine got sentenced to 15 yrs for made up charges, today
his friend- 2 years for speaking to a voice of america reporter (
my lil cuz is also in jail.... for a few months now (since november)
because - well they tell us it's because she's a WITNESS to a case that national security is bringing against...
tbh it doesnt make sense at all- she's never been brought in front of a judge (because there is no law in juba anymore)


--
its funny cause yesterday i found myself missing being in juba
and actually thinking about going in july.
i'd be crazy to.

He made a good point.

The military leaders are the ones who committed war crimes for Bashir, so chances are they will do the same thing or worse to stay in power.


Peace yo

so no info getting out of the country to the outside world as to whats going on
but also preventing or slowing down protesters from strategizing or just being informed

but apparently text and cell voicecalls still work


crazy. things went from good (looking up) to bad in a blink


not to mention seeing darfur, south sudan, and mali back in the news for all the wrong reasons....




anybody know why the post from yesterday (apparently) get deleted?

they had a internet blackout too. violence flares up then quiets down.
but yea shtt has to rise above +expected level of devastation+ up to +horrific atrocity+ level for the world to take notice.

and then the lack of response by AU or even any neighboring governments is beyond frustrating.

some times u gotta check out just for selfcare/mental health purposes tho

i see some south sudanese saying that khartoum is just experiencing the conflict that the rest of the nation(s) felt for the past 20 years. not in a 'u deserve it' way, but like - u ignored everything else going on around other parts of the country for so long, now it has landed at your doorstep

Me and the family are doing good Alhamdulilah.
These past few days have been an uneasy stalemate.
Internet is out except for a few places , so when I do get access check my mail and news from the outside world.
I don’t even know where to start typing about this situation but I’ll try and write something coherent.
Thank you for the concern and well wishes from everyone.
We family.

first, inbox me another way to get in touch with you so i don't blast this out again.
thanks so much for letting me know how you are.


i have a couple of friends in Khrtm so its been a bit overwhelming
(my mom's in darfur-unamid- they havent been able to get supplies for a couple of days)

*just* found out a friend that i thought was in nairobi has been in Khrt since the protests started
and honestly... i dont think he should be there (he and his sister have been on those natnl security lists for ever.)

>I don’t even know where to start typing about this situation

south sudan is equally fucked, tbh. except we are just going along with it
(arbitrary arrests and detention, natnl security kidnapping people from nairobi to juba now, smh)

>We family.

keeping you and yours in my thoughts.
let me know if you need anything.

Rihanna and George Clooney posted and put out statements to draw attention to what's going on

But Similar to what akon said about AU, I don't know how effective the "call your congressman" tactic is
