The World Federation of Trade Unions, which is the militant voice of 95 million workers in 130 countries of the five continents, reiterates its internationalist support and solidarity with the workers and the people of Sudan, who have been protesting over the last three months against the financial hardship and poverty in their country.
Many protesters have lost their life until today, hundreds of them have been injured and thousands have been arrested, while new massive mobilizations are taking place after the violent killing of a detained teacher by the police last week.
The world’s militant trade union movement strongly condemns the state repression against the workers in Sudan. We demand the end of the violence and the release of all arrested protesters. The social and democratic rights of the people of Sudan must be respected, and immediate measures for the improvement of their living conditions must be taken as well.
