Red Card Movement started this petition to African Union Chairperson CYRIL RAMAPHOSA

The Red Card Movement on behalf of all the young people of South Sudan wishes to register their unhappiness and disdain with the African Union's attempt to re-write South Sudan's struggle history.

It has been brought to our attention that the African Union (in Addis Ababa) has falsely placed the portrait of current President Salva Kiir Mayardit among the board of continent’s founding fathers.

We strongly protest this as incorrect: the founding father of South Sudan is indisputably Dr. John Garang Mabior, First President of the Government of Southern Sudan and First Chairman of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement. He fought for CPA which granted Independence (in reality was only a formality). Even today the Bible still tells us that it is Moses and not Joshua who led the Jews out of slavery in Egypt and led them to the Holy Land that God had promised them.

We do not wish to rubbish the contribution made by President Kiir and other SPLM leaders but we maintained that the distinguished honour is reserved only for our true founding father, Col. Dr John Garang. Dr John is not only a founding father; he is the symbol of unity in our war-torn nation.

First, the Red Card Movement is directly demanding the Chairperson of the African Union to immediately take down President Kiir’s portrait and replace it with the true portrait of South Sudan’s Founding Father Dr. Garang.

Second, we call upon the African Union to respect the people of South Sudan and to respect our cherished history of the struggle for liberation.
