Nobel Peace Prize Nomination
“The Sudanese revolution will go down in history as one of the greatest non-violence mass movements of our generation”
Andrew Gilmore, Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights council
“The determination of the Sudanese people and the relentless commitment to non-violence, the strength of spirit and the courage in the face of bullets and live ammunition is something we will not see again soon. It is a model of a democratic uprising”
Professor Eric Reeves
In December of 2018, the price increase of a breakfast sandwich in a school sparked the beginning of the longest and deadliest protests in Sudan's modern history. In the face of terror, brutality and killings, the Sudanese people were committed to peaceful protests and demonstrations against the 30 years rule of the Dictator Omar Al Bashir. On the 11th of April Omar Al Bashir's government came to an end and a transitional military council took over the reins of power. Despite the political change, the people continued peacefully protesting and demanding a swift transition to civilian rule. The military continued to meet peaceful protests with harassment, intimidation and killings of which the worst was on the 3rd of June when a peaceful sit-in was violently dispersed and resulted in the killing of over 100 people and the injury of over 500. There were also confirmed cases of rape, dumping of bodies in the River Nile and burning of protestors' property. Despite this aggression and brutality, the revolution was unwavering; and it refused to veer from its peaceful path and stayed non-violent. To tempt the revolutionary protestors to take up arms, several loaded machine guns were left in a well-known revolutionary neighborhood for the protesters to find. The resistance committee of that neighborhood reacted admirably and in a manner that truly reflected the peaceful spirit of the Sudanese revolution; they dumped the bullets near the Nile and handed the weapons back to the authorities.
We want the peaceful Sudanese revolution recognized and awarded the Noble peace prize for 2019. The first step in the process is for the revolution to be nominated. Please encourage all qualified nominators to nominate the revolution, especially government ministers, members of parliament, and university professors in the Humanities.
Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize for the Sudanese revolution will become a beacon. A beacon that sends a message to Africa and the rest of the world that military coups are not welcomed, and that peaceful protest is a better tool for change than armed means. Awarding the peace prize will inspire other nations to choose democracies and support those who stand up for civil rule and universal human rights.
