End campaign of repression in Sudan

Statement from the Central Committee of the Communist Party
of Australia regarding the persecution of Communists in Sudan

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of Australia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attacks on the Sudanese Communist Party and joins international calls for an immediate end to the anti-Communist campaign waged across the Blue Nile Region. The CPA demands the immediate release of Comrade Suliman Ali, the Political Secretary of the Party district, who is charged with crimes that carry the death penalty, and all other comrades detained in recent days. The capture of Comrade Suliman Ali, who is 68 years old and in fragile health, is a politically motivated outrage that cannot be allowed to stand.

We note that the violations of the rights of the members of the Sudanese Communist Party take place at the same time as military action against the people the Southern Kordufan and other war zones of the country. It is another example of acts of anti-Communist repression that have taken place in Ukraine, Venezuela, Greece, Serbia and elsewhere in recent times. The CPA calls on the progressive people of the world to unite against this escalating campaign against the defenders of the rights and interests of the people.
