Dispatch from Khartoum #12


23rd August 2023

"... The electricity and water supply line has been disrupted since last Saturday due to artillery shelling, and the maintenance crew has been prevented by the Rapid Support militia and the army militia. I have obtained solar energy to charge the phone, the situation has become unbearable, and going out to the states exposes me to arrest, but we will take [REDACTED] to a safe place without meeting, the bases of the regular forces, bastards..."

Contact with our comrades from the Sudanese Anarchist Gathering in Khartoum has been sporadic these past few months.
War is hell. The lack of prefiguration and network infrastructure has mean that mutual aid, not just from the anarchists but from state actors and NGOs also has been lacking. What little solidarity they might offer the people of Sudan has been stymied by borders and governmental interests. Pockets of material aid sit in accounts waiting on the logistics to once again become viable.

The comrades from the Anarkismo network have had better luck here with thier anarchist contacts in the North of Sudan, as they have launched a fund to help extract comrades and seemingly get material aid into Sudan, here is theiur statement of support and call out for donation.
