We want to express our appreciation for the Act for Sudan group and for standing by the Sudanese people. We are surprised and we deeply regret the statement coming out from the United Nations. Instead of supporting the victims and the right of the Sudanese people to democracy and the respect for human rights and the rule of law, it is supporting the aggressors and war criminals. On top of them is Bashir who is wanted by the ICC. We are expecting the UN to help by bringing them to justice and by protecting civilians and by opening corridors for food. The UN is expected to stand against impunity.
