FFC confirms participation in July 31 mass protests

The announcement of the Forces of Freedom and Change regarding participation in the July 31 mass protests comes after the controversy of last week’s demonstrations.

Khartoum: AlTaghyeer

The Forces for Freedom and Change, the Central Council Group, announced that it, its leaders, and its followers, would join the July 31 mass demonstrations headed to the presidential palace.

The coordination of the resistance committees had earlier announced their intent to march to the presidential palace to demand civilian rule and support peaceful coexistence.

The former ruling coalition pledged in a statement issued on Saturday to support the demonstrations, and to harness all available platforms and capabilities for their support and success.

The FFC said that this comes as a matter of commitment in “supporting any act of resistance and against this coup”  while telling the resistance committees that they “will not walk alone.”

Last week, Resistance Committees in Khartoum refused to participate in the “One Sudan” demonstrations, which were conducted by the coalition last week.

The protests, which were held in Khartoum against a recent new wave of tribal and ethnic tensions in the country, were originally called for by the FFC, and not the resistance committees, who typically conduct and announce protest marches.

The committees had also suggested to boycott all future protests that do not fall within the “revolutionary schedule” that the committees release beginning of every month.
