Suffering on the Peripheries in Sudan
Eric Reeves | February 15, 2019
It will be more and more difficult to track the particular suffering and deprivation in the peripheral regions of Sudan as the uprising continues and gains strength.
But it is important to remember that the actions of the al-Bashir regime continue to have devastating effects in Darfur, eastern Sudan, and particularly the areas of South Kordofan and Blue Nile under control of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army North (SPLM/A-N). There a humanitarian embargo, first imposed by the regime in June 2011, remains in place and has created tremendous suffering and destruction.
One of our only real views into these particularly distressed region comes from “South Kordofan/Blue Nile Coordination Unit Humanitarian Update” (February 2019)
