30 JUNE 2018

Hundreds of Sudanese join protest in London against 29 years of Bashir’s rule

A broad coalition of the Sudanese diaspora in the UK, alongside Waging Peace, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART), and student-led movement STAND UK demonstrated on Saturday 30 June 2018, to mark 29 years since President Omar al-Bashir assumed office in Sudan.

Mende Nazer spoke at the protest, saying:

“Khartoum burns, kills, enslaves and bombs us. They destroy our culture, bulldoze our schools and bomb our hospitals. But we are still Nuba. I was enslaved for many years. I escaped thanks to people of Britain. Please urge your government not to support the cruel government in Khartoum. We have families we love, just like you. But the British Government is increasing support for the cruel Khartoum. We do not want to be refugees. We want to stay in our beautiful land of the Nuba Mountains.”

UPDATE FROM 2017 ANNUAL MEETING

 

We have posted a picture of our London meeting at the Royal Over Seas League with Mende and our newest members.

Our recent humanitarian mission was made possible by cooperating with the experienced and dedicated Baroness Caroline Cox and her colleague David Thomas. We are fortunate that they both joined the Mende Nazer foundation at our 2017 Annual Meeting in London.

Our hearts yearn daily for the welfare of the Nuba people – that is why we bring you the following update with indescribable joy!

Under very perilous circumstances, we delivered much-needed humanitarian supplies to Mende’s village of Karko and surrounding area. The trip also raised awareness of the ongoing conflict and subsequent suffering of the innocent population. There were other intangible benefits such as adding to our experience, reputation, partner networking and confidence.
