Sudan is home to the Meroe pyramids, ancient structure up to 4,600 years old. There are more pyramids in Sudan (about 200) than there are in the whole of Egypt. Sudan became independent in 1956, and the country was the largest African country prior to the secession of the south in 2011. On 30 June 1989, Colonel Omar al-Bashir led a military coup and later became a one-party state. In February 2003, the war in Darfur (a region in western Sudan) started and the Government of Sudan carried out genocide against Darfur civilians: 480,000 people have been killed, and over 2.6 million people are displaced. Since then the economic and humanitarian situations have deteriorated, human rights violations and restrictions of freedom of expression have also increased.

Remarkable people in Sudan: Dr. Tom Catena.

Dr. Tom Catena, Mother of Mercy Hospital, Nuba Mountains - Sudan

Dr. Tom Catena, Mother of Mercy Hospital, Nuba Mountains - Sudan

Visit our page dedicated to the film

Dr. Tom Catena’s patients come to him from hundreds of miles away on foot, in carts, or often cradled in their mother’s arms. Welcome to the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, an area of the world so void of humanitarian and media attention that years of war go ignored, and cries for help go largely unheard. Here, this lone American surgeon tends with equal compassion to patients ranging from malnutrition and leprosy, to grave wounds inflicted by the indiscriminate bombings ordered by their own president, Omar al-Bashir. When a government can attack defenseless men, women and children with supersonic bombers, and it doesn’t make anyone’s newswire, something is terribly awry... More information here

يا يابا يا والد، ما تبقى لي عارض. ود الناس أحرجته بسؤالك البارد.

Lesley Anne Warner

Yesterday was Mom’s 80th. (Here she is playing mas in Trinidad in 2013). I flew in w/Ms. AnderBaby to surprise her bc she hadn’t seen her since she was 4mos old due to COVID. Visit cut short due to lockdown at her assisted living, but brief time together is better than nothing. pic.twitter.com/j8B4sHiumu

I sympathise with what you say but think ahead-this too will pass & let no one, least of all genocidaires,take away your humanity. Coz if you let them they will have won. It’s not the numbers who perish but those who refuse to bow who determine victory of good over evil #Tigray twitter.com/medhanieg/stat…

قال الشيخ فرح ود تكتوك: المال يا حراته يا وراتة. :وقال الحرات بريده ربنا القدوس قدحو في الملم يبقى دوام مدعوس في الدنيا جابولو الفي العيب مدسوس وإن مات ساقوه على جنة الفردوس

نستقبل في ٢٢ سبتمبر الجاري عيد ميلاد المرحوم عبد الخالق محجوب الرابع والتسعين. شملكم الله ببركته.

StillSUDAN

ومثل هذا الوضع الذي يجب أن يتحكم فيه العلم والرشد لا مكان للعقل المتحجر ولا مكان للعقل غير الأمين، لأن مثل هذا العقل لا يصلح.

StillSUDAN

الذي يجمع بين الناس في هذه الفترة، في إشعال وتطوير الثقافة، النهضة الثقافية في البلاد، هو أن يتحكم العلم وأن تنظف ثقافة السودانيين وحياتهم من الخرافة. هذا هو الجامع لكل الناس في هذه الفترة.

StillSUDAN

إن فرض آيديولوجية، إن كانت آيديولوجية شيوعية، أو آيديولوجية لغير شيوعيين أو اشتراكيين عرب أو قوميين عرب أو اشتراكيين يمينيين لا يتمشى على الإطلاق مع متطلبات النهضة الثقافية في فترة الثورة الديمقراطية.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: المعرفة سلسلة من التراث الإنساني ولا يجب قفلها. ولهذا وبطبيعة الثورة السودانية، فإنه من العسير ومن غير الصحيح ومن الخطأ أن يفرض في ميدان الثقافة الديمقراطية آيديولوجية بعينها.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: لا يمكن أن تنتقل فكرة العدالة الإسلامية إلا إذا انتقل الأساس المادي للعدالة وهو اختفاء الطبقات، وهو اختفاء الملكية لوسائل الإنتاج، ذلك كان أساس العدالة في المجتمعات الإسلامية الأولى.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: إن الانفصال هو الانفصال الاجتماعي، الطلاب الجنوبيون عندهم حركة منفصلة، العمال الجنوبيون عندهم حركة منفصلة، والنساء الجنوبيات عندهم حركة منفصلة.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: مشكلة الاقتصاد السوداني الإنتاجية.

StillSUDAN

اشتراكية الفقر اشتراكية لا تؤدي إلى شئ غير التحلل وغير الانهيار. الاشتراكية القائمة على تقسيم الفقر أكثر منه تقسيم الغنى بين الناس اشتراكية واهية لن تسير ولن تتقدم.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: إن الاشتراكية لا يمكن أن تبنى من فوق الفقر. إن الاشتراكية والفقر عدوان لدودان.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: أن محتوى الثورة الوطنية الديمقراطية في السودان هو ثورة القطاع الزراعي بأقسامه المختلفة، بالعاملين في الثورة الحيوانية والعاملين في مناطق الزراعة المطرية والعاملين في مناطق الزراعة المروية.

StillSUDAN

في ظروف معينة يمكن أن يقهر هذا الجهاز، ظروف معينة ظروف سياسية فيها مد، الشعب متحمس، يقهر هذا الجهاز، يمكن أن تصدر قرارات وينفذها. لكن في أي اهتزاز فإن هذا الجهاز هو الذي سيلعب الدور الحاسم في عملية الثورة المضادة.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: إن انتكاسات الثورة في العالم الثالث كان من ضمنها تخيل بعض الثوريين بأنه يمكن أن تكون ثوريا من فوق وتستعمل جهاز الدولة القديم لتطبيق الثورة والاشتراكية.

StillSUDAN

من عبد الخالق محجوب: الرأسمالية دي بتاعت التجارة دي لا تبني شيئا على الإطلاق. وكلكم تعرفون أن التاجر عندما يوفر يضع إمكانياته ويستثمر في البناء. كل الأمال إنه يبني بيت للإيجار. ما في شي.
