PRESS RELEASE

Statement III

TO: SOUTH SUDANESE MEN IN UNIFORMS

We salute you for your serve for the nation. When you first picked up arms against the oppressive regime in Khartoum, Sudan, it was because you wanted a better future for our nation. As this day approaches, May of 16th, the very day on which, more than 30 years ago, you opposed the tyrannical regime in Khartoum to free the people of South Sudan, today, we asked you to join us.

Joins us, as we tramp in the streets of Juba asking president Salva Kiir to peacefully hands the power to the civilians, because we are tired of war, displacement of the civilians, hunger, and all sorts of ill treatments.

By standing with the people of South Sudan during the referendum, we are where we are today. It is time to protect the people, and not the regime that does not serve the interest of the people of South Sudanese. The leadership of Salva Kiir has failed us. All of us. President Salva Kiir has power to bring peace and transform our nation. But time and time again, he fails us.

We are calling upon you, to protect the civilians, and distance yourselves from the leadership of president Salva Kiir who failed of us together.

We call upon the people of South Sudan, international community, and all friends of South Sudan to monitor the process of our peaceful demonstration to express our rights and needs.

This message goes specifically to South Sudan chief of the general staffs, Lt. Gen. Gabriel Jok Riak. You are a son of the land, and we ask for your loyalty to this land which has sucked the blood of our freedom fighters, please, ask your soldiers to protect the civilians while they exercise their rights to protest the unending war.

Our steadfast people

The military authority and the dictatorship can not tolerate another organization, no word, no breath, no word, no land, but no one else. We have decided on a new dawn of dawns, where we have pledged to build a new republic. Neither prison nor prison is there rest. We have decided to change our bitter reality. If people want life, then fate must respond.

We also promised you in our first statement to list the places of assembly, peaceful marches and processions. At the same time, there will be peaceful gatherings and vigils in parallel with the freedom procession in South Sudan in the following countries:

Our Hero

When a person revolts, there is no timetable, but he must always go forward. The expected repression is the seed of our revolution. The revolution is not an apple falling when you pray but you have to make it fall.

Long live the struggles of our people and the struggles of the People’s Army

Either we win, or we die
