The Foundational Statement

We, the undersigned:

  • Resistance Committees

  • Demands and Professional Associations
  • Preparatory and Steering Committees of Trade Unions
  • Public academic, cultural, media religious and community figures

Being keen to bring about lasting peace for the people of Sudan and safeguard the country’s unity, sovereignty, and stability; and

Being aware that the ultimate goal of this ongoing war is to militarize life in the country and uproot the very foundations of civil life and the democratic rule laid down by the December Revolution, which peacefully managed to thwart the despotism of the Islamists and the defunct National Congress Party (NCP); and

In light of the new reality brought about by the war which erupted on 15 April and its aftermath, we have decided to join forces under the banner of “The Civilian Front for Ending the War and Restoring Democracy”, to achieve the following goals:

First: Stop the war immediately, and provide urgent humanitarian, medical, and public service needs to citizens in the affected areas;

Second: Put the country back on the course of transition to democracy and civil rule;

Third: Ensure full exit of the military from political and economic spheres;

Fourth: Implement a comprehensive reform of the security and military institutions, and create one professional army, through peaceful steps and under the umbrella of a national civilian transitional democratic process;

Fifth: Foil the defunct regime’s plans to return to power, and its current attempts to revenge from December revolution, and to militarize life under the camouflage of war and the actions of the ill-sighted Islamist coup;

Sixth: Challenge the calls for alignment based on ethnic, tribal, regional and religious grounds; resist propaganda, terrorist campaigns and hate speech; and promote the values of citizenship and peaceful coexistence;

Seventh: Reject all forms of external intervention in our local affairs, except international efforts to stop the war, provide humanitarian aid, and reach a comprehensive and just peace;

Eighth: To achieve the aforementioned goals, we, the Civilian Front for Ending the War and Restoring Democracy, will deploy all our resources and capabilities, leveraging our extended experience in combatting all forms of tyranny and totalitarianism.

Ninth: We have agreed to orchestrate our joint action through representatives of the signing parties and to develop effective coordination mechanisms to accelerate nationwide action. Our priority areas will be communication and humanitarian work, and reaching out to the local and international public opinion, and broadening the base of participation by inviting more national figures and elements with the exception of Islamist Movement and the disbanded National Congress Party and their allies, ultimately paving the way for unification of the forces of the Revolution.

Finally, we reiterate our commitment to stand united under the banner of our Civil Front, faithful to the cause of ending war and restoring democracy. Our doors will be open to all democratic forces, and together we will stand strongly against attempts to thwart the December Revolution, against the war and militarization of life, and in favour of bringing the democratic transition back on course, establishing a civilian democratic rule and translating the slogan of the glorious December revolution: freedom, peace, and justice.

We have no doubt that our people will ultimately triumph over tyrants.

The Civilian Front for Ending the War and Restoring Democracy.
