The Khartoum Regime Shows Itself Capable of Any Barbarism in Suppressing Peaceful Demonstrations for Freedom and Justice

I have at this point seen thousands of postings by Sudanese social media sources, as well as dozens of dispatches from Sudanese news sources and international wire services. (Additionally, I would highlight the particularly powerful op/ed by Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times; “Marching Toward a Massacre,” January 16, 2019 | https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/16/opinion/sudan-protests-bashir.html ).
Nothing has shocked me, however, as much as this posting from “Sudanese Translators for Change/STC [on Twitter @SudaneseTC], also reported by the highly reliable Radio Dabanga, with its extraordinary corps of reporters on the ground throughout Sudan:
If such actions—and this is grimly representative of the nature of repression now being inflicted on the people of Sudan as they demonstrate for freedom and justice, and removal of the al-Bashir regime—are not only condemned but punitively sanctions by the international community, the very idea of an “international community” will prove itself a smug and comforting fiction.
