TAEF STATEMENT ON SUDAN The African Editors Forum (TAEF) joins fellow Africans in condemning the murder of more than 30 unarmed and peaceful protesters by the military in Sudan. TAEF sends its condolences to the victims of this brutality and wishes those injured a speedy recovery. While TAEF is concerned about the violations of constitutional rights of ordinary Sudanese, editors are concerned about the absence of media freedom, independence and the continued harassment of journalists by security forces. Today, TAEF condemns this barbaric crackdown by the Sudanese military, demands the immediate cessation of this atrocious repression and demands the prosecution of those responsible for this butchery. TAEF further makes an urgent appeal to all organizations that stand for peace freedom to take a stand against the human rights violations in Sudan. We call on the African Union and the United Nations to intervene and stop the bloodshed as well as holding those responsible accountable. Jovial Rantao Chairperson Makan Koné Secretary General
