The General Congress of the Movement for Justice and Equality (JEM) took a decision at its Extraordinary 6th General Congress in January 2012 after the death of the movement’s founder, Martyr Field Marshal Dr. Khalil Ibrahim Mohammed, that December 23 of each year to commemorate the Martyrs Da. The meeting took place in the locality of Hideyat in South Kordofan. Thus, the membership in the Offices of the Movement inside the Sudan and those in the Diaspora in offices scattered in more than 45 countries have celebrated the Occasion concurrently.
Martyrs are those who irrigated the blooming Tree of the Revolution by their pure blood. The Martyrs are candles that illuminate the road towards the vastness of liberty and freedom from the shackles of slavery, humiliation and denial of legitimate rights.
It is time to Salute and Tribute the Third Anniversary of the festival for the Martyrs of (JEM) and the Martyrs of Sudan through the eras.
And We pay tributes to the gallant soldiers in the rebellion who keep their Fingers on the trigger to keep the ember of the Revolution remains burning against the tyrannical enemy of the people of Sudan.
As Ernesto Che Guevara quoted to have said The question is of fighting the causes and not just the effects. It is better to die standing than to live on your knees. Revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall! Revolution is strong like Steel, red like burning coal, remaining like oak tree and deep like our wild love for homeland! Such as who sold his country and betrayed his homeland such as who steals from his father’s house to feed, the thieves where his father would not forgive him and the thief would not reward him!
. The martyrs’ pure blood that irrigated the soil of our homeland is for the sake of the central Issue of the people of Sudan in Darfur. They struggled fighting and confronting the killing machine of military and the mercenary militias belonged to the hateful tyrant regime of the hypocritical National Congress Party (NCP) led by the genocidal criminal fugitive from the international justice, infamous Omer al-Bashir and his entourage of hirelings.
The senseless wars planned and waged by the corrupt regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) and designated by the name (hot summer) in the past year failed. The unrepentant regime decided to rename it this time as (Crucial Summer). As its predecessors it will prove only a waste of souls and economy of the Sudanese people. Moreover, the end outcome of those wars is destruction of the infrastructure, which is already fragile. The (NCP) regime’s wars are for the sake of the genocidal fugitive from the international justice Omar al-Bashir to remain in the helm of power in Sudan for further lean years. Furthermore, these self-defeating absurd wars waged by the (NCP) regime should have been named ‘failed summers) or Summer Wastes!
The people of Sudan salute the commanders in Chief and the hero in the perch and pay tributes to the founder of the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) Commander in Chief, Field Marshal martyr Dr. Khalil Ibrahim Muhammad. Tributes are due for his brave, intrepid, ascetic, generous, companions who had never acted as cheap or selfish; they had known the issues of Sudan and Darfur and died standing up and kicking all the material temptations or positions. May Allah bless them with His Mercy and forgiveness, Ameen.
The list of martyrs of the pivotal issue of the people of Sudan in Darfur if we tried to write the names of those brave heroes will become quite long. However, at the top of the list come the following: Abdullah Abbaker, Adam Korti Mohmed, Dr. Khalil Ibrahim Muhammad, Jammali Hassan Jalaladdin, Ibrahim Mohmed Hassan Aburanat and Tahir Badawi Haggar and all the other Sudanese martyrs of pride and dignity through the eras.
Traders of religion and the adventurers of small change political parties, AKA Succession Parties- Arabic Tawali, are still dabbling in their transgression, while the people of Sudan live in the worst conditions that any creature can live in, let alone human beings.
Martyrs’ Day comes to renew the Covenant Charter and to continue the struggle to access the legitimate rights of marginalized people from the ruling entity of murder and gang rapists, because what is taken by force can only be restored by force, as the popular saying goes.
The gallant Sudanese people have become aware of the fact that the time of submission, refraction and complacency, humiliation and disgrace have moved away and what remained is either life with pride and dignity or martyrdom in the name of the Cause against injustice and tyranny.
Lately, the (NCP) regime went on to commit more war crimes, ethnic cleansing , crimes against humanity, genocide and mass gang rape depended on the notorious Janjaweed militias, which its name changed by cloning it into the infamous Rapid Support Force (RSF).
The Third Ceremonial Festival for the remembrance of the Martyrs takes place under the slogan: (The Monster Beast kills a Revolutionary and the Earth sprouts a Thousand Revolutionary)! Oh, Pride of the Wound if we died, surely, the Cemeteries would have fought.
The struggle of the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and its allies along with the components of the Sudanese people aims to go ahead to overthrow the ruling regime of the racist corrupt National Congress Party. Moreover, followed by the establishment of the rule of law and good governance in which a comprehensive peace and full democratic transformation prevail. All citizens on the soil of the homeland are equal in rights and duties. Sudanese citizenship will be the sole identity for all and nothing else other than it. There will be no any other consideration. There will not be any role for tribal, regional, racial, colour, culture, language, gender or religion affiliations. Applications of the Transitional justice and comeuppance for the survivors of the Holocaust of the senseless wars and rewarding and compensation to the families of the victims follow. And as well as the dismantling and liquidating the institutions erected over the past quarter of century by the rule of the fundamentalist hypocritical gang of the international Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Organisation. Thus, we will build a state of equal citizenship on the ruins of the institutions belonged to the criminal regime of the (NCP) a modern Sudanese State based on sustainable peace, equal rights and duties. The criminal fugitive from the international justice Omer al-Bashir’s hot summer that turned into the crucial summer, the gallant forces of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) will make it a failed summer. Their fate will turn out as the previously defeated battles of the regime waged on our unarmed populations but failed abjectly before, though caused further disaster to the homeland and its people.
The fascist racist regime of the (NCP) has been trading insults lately using the Racial phrase “strike the Gharrabi/Gharbawi by the Gharrabi/Gharbawi Moreover, there is also another similar derogatory phrase” Strike the slave by the other slave”. Both phrases are of demeaning derogatory connotation for insulting the people from the Western Sudanese regions such as Darfur and Kordofan. All are based on racist fascist heavyweight insults, par excellence. Nevertheless, it sounds like the phrase ‘the Kettle calling the Pot Black’! The Sudanese Arabic Dialect states: (The one-toothed person laughing at the other that has Two Teeth)! These are the scourges of time that make you giggle foolishly), as the popular adage goes! This is the time for the farces to have Fun!
The people of Sudan will build New Sudan on the ruins of the NCP sham fascist racist regime and pave the road toward a peaceful, lofty homeland, guarded by security, fraternity, freedom and decent living for all the citizens on the soil of the beloved motherland.
The notorious NCP regime led by the genocidal criminal fugitive from the international justice Omer al-Bashir is renowned for the repudiation of covenants and breach of agreements it signs with parties in dispute, the Darfur rebel movements, after a marathon of negotiating process witnessed by mediators, facilitators, observers, representatives from the Sudan’s neighbouring countries and peacekeepers. This obviously makes the negotiation process a pure waste of time and effort and further factor for the suffering of the civilian populations in the areas of conflict and war zone. It has been ‘Mission Impossible’ to trust what the NCP entity signings of covenants in view of the regime’s tendency for prevarication and manoeuvring; jiggery-pokery!
Lately, the News Media reported that the embattled (NCP) regime has invited all types of the quacks and charlatans for a meeting at the so-called Green Square in Khartoum. The purpose was to utter publications that might befall curse on the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) believing it would help them to defeat the armed opposition forces to restore the locality of Abukarshawla in the Kordofan region occupied by the SRF rebels last time, when the regime fought under the banner of the failed ‘The Hot Summer’. It is true that time for the farces and Fun has arrived.
Tribute to all the martyrs of the revolution in Sudan and their memory remains a beacon inspiring activists and people will triumph over injustice and tyranny, and it is a revolution until victory and not slept the eyes of cowards and traitors.
Oh God, have mercy on our innocent martyrs and let them in the highest paradise. Amen, O Lord of the Worlds. Revolution, Revolution until victory and There is no solution, but internecine war – called by a local vernacular al-Bel! There is no solution to the woes of the homeland people without ‘Bell”!
