Freedom and Change announced participation in protests on 30th June to denounce the rule of the military

In a surprising move that may raise widespread opposition, Freedom and Change (National Accord) announced participation in protests that the resistance committees said they would organize on June 30 to denounce the rule of the military.

June 30 coincides with the anniversary of the military coup that brought ousted President Omar al-Bashir to power; As millions of Sudanese took to the streets in 2019 to denounce the massacre of the sit-in dispersal around the army leadership.

The official spokesman for Al-Mithaq group, Muhammad Zakaria, said “We call on our masses, all advocates of democracy and the general Sudanese people to demonstrate peacefully on June 30 to emphasize the gains of the revolution.” He added: “We must guard the revolution from advocates of exclusion and those with narrow party agendas.”

The National Accord Group supported the military coup carried out by General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan on October 25, 2021, according to which the Freedom and Change Coalition – the Central Council was removed from power.

Last Sunday, the National Accord Group said that the coalition, which was excluded from power, is seeking to ally with the army commanders secretly to establish a new partnership that distances dozens of influential political forces.

A delegation of army, freedom and change leaders held a second meeting to follow up on the issues discussed in the first meeting, which took place on June 9, with US-Saudi mediation.

Zakaria considered broad political agreement as the only way out of the current crisis, calling for the implementation and completion of peace.

The Freedom and Change Coalition split in September 2019, into the Central Council and the National Accord Group, after disagreements over organizational issues.
