The overthrow of the coup, the victory of the revolution, and the achievement of its objectives are accomplished through the strength and unity of the revolutionary bodies resisting dictatorship, as we observe certain parties attempting to drive a wedge between our revolutionary forces, but we will not allow this to happen.
The masses of our resistant people: we, in the coordination of the resistance committees, have received an invitation from the tripartite mechanism in order to open the door for direct negotiations with the coup authorities through the negotiating table.
We said it and repeated it again and again, that there is no negotiation with the coup authorities, no negotiation over the civil state, and no partnership with the Military Council.
The top-down political solution pursued by the tripartite mechanism falls short of tackling the root causes of the conflict’s actual crisis and prevents addressing the underlying causes of the real historical problem facing our country.
We, the Khartoum State Resistance Committees, believe that the solution to the Sudanese crisis lies first in overthrowing the coup of 25 October and holding its perpetrators accountable.
That is why we refuse to sit with the leaders of the coup at one table, and we affirm that any result of this negotiation does not concern us, and we will continue to fill the streets with the steadfast masses of our people.
We also hope that the international community will stand with the Sudanese people’s ambitions and aspirations for democratic transition through the establishment of a civilian authority, rather than against it through a new partnership with the military coup authority. And that we reject the coup’s leaders who have committed horrific crimes that that are unforgivable and not subject to statute of limitations, while ensuring that we do not negotiate with the military establishment, we are determined to overthrow its leaders, thoroughly reform, and hold them accountable. We reject their participation in political life and are ready to pay the highest price possible for it.
Lastly, we call on the sons and daughters of our people to move forward and work to mobilize the capabilities and resources of our people in order to support and strengthen these choices and the continuous popular pressure to achieve them.
