Sudanese Communist Party suffers from continuous attacks towards its cadres. Recently two comrades, Fathi Elfadl and Taj Alsir Othman Babu, were arrested by the security forces.

Sudan has witnessed mass demonstrations against the regime's economic policy resulting in serious deterioration in people's living conditions. While the Party calls for the strengthening of the building of people's resistance committees for mass actions across various sectors in workplaces, residential areas, schools, universities among workers, farmers, youngsters, women and students, Sudanese regime continues to target cadres of the Sudanese Communist Party.

PAME expresses its solidarity and support to the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] of South Africa, who are going on Strike in the Sector of Water and Sanitation on 8th of March.

The NEHAWU, among others, demands signing of new conditions of employment for construction workers of the sector, payment of money owed since 2017, stop outsourcing, health and safety measures in the workplaces and more.

On February 15, following the resignation of Jacob Zuma from the post of President of the South African Republic (SAR), the SAR Parliament elected Vice-President Cyril Ramaphosa as the country’s new head of state.

Mr Ramaphosa is the leader of SAR’s ruling African National Congress party. He has contributed much to the fight of the South African people against apartheid and to the establishment of a democratic society in SAR.

sacpThe SACP joins the great majority of South Africans, not least comrades across our Alliance in welcoming President Jacob Zuma's belated resignation. This is something that should have happened a long time ago.

The levels of parasitic looting of public resources that have occurred under President Zuma's watch, the firing of ministers who have stood in his way, the erosion of the hard won rule of law, the perversion of key state institutions notably in the criminal justice system, the manipulation of the public broadcaster, and the auctioning off of our national sovereignty in the pursuit of private accumulation have caused huge damage to our country. The principal victims of the state capture agenda in which President Zuma has been central has had a particularly devastating impact on the working class and the rural and urban poor.

COSATUThe Congress of South African Trade Unions welcomes the resignation of President Jacob Zuma. This resignation was long overdue. We do laud him for finally doing the right thing and freeing the country from what was a momentous week of political turmoil.

This decision will hopefully allow the country to move away from the relentless partisan fighting, the prolonged political gridlock, and also the damaging corruption scandals. Now the ANC has an opportunity to work to consolidate the gains of our country's young democracy and rescue many poor people from the clutches of poverty.

COSATUThe Congress of South African Trade Unions welcomes the ANC NEC decision to recall President Jacob Zuma from office as the President of South Africa. We have also noted that the president has since refused to abide by the decision of the NEC and resign.

The federation is not at all surprised by this level of intransigence and total inebriation with power by President Jacob Zuma. This after all is the president who working with his mercenary followers converted his Cabinet into a rent-seeking, docile and unaccountable caste.

ancThe National Executive Committee (NEC) of the African National Congress (ANC) convened a special meeting on Monday, 12th February 2018 at the Saint George Hotel, Tshwane. The meeting was called to reflect on the current situation as it pertains to the position of the President of the Republic of South Africa, Comrade Jacob Zuma.

The NEC received a report from the Officials on their engagement with President Zuma. These engagements had been informed by the commitment to pursue firstly the interest of the country and the ANC and the determination to handle the matter with utmost dignity.

New demonstrations in Sudan meet with repression and leaders of the opposition including those of the Communist Party of Sudan are detained.

Following the uprisings against the economic policies of the Sudanese regime on 16 January in Khartoum and 17 January in Omdurman, the call for 31 January in Khartoum North met with massive support of the Sudanese people.

The demonstration organised by the opposition including the Communist Party of Sudan (CPoS) was harshly repressed by the regime’s security forces. In several towns of Sudan, protests were dispersed by the police and the leaders of the opposition were detained by the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS).

Common appeal by communist and workers' parties in solidarity with the working people of Sudan demanding the immedate release of the leaders of the CP of Sudan and all political detainees.

ICP, 30 January 2018

The persecutions by the government of Sudan towards the political opposition including leaders of the CP of Sudan, which had mobilised the people against economic conditions, meets  international reaction by communist and workers’ parties in solidarity with the people of Sudan.
