"Sudanese women describe being gang-raped in ethnically targeted attacks by Arab forces"
"Rape is widespread amid the war in Sudan. Young women from the ethnic-African Masalit tribe say they were sexually assaulted at gunpoint by RSF paramilitary and Arab militia forces during attacks on the city of El Geneina in West Darfur. 'For three days, they were raping me,’ one teenager said."

The UN must not abandon Sudan amid war and atrocities
"The Sudanese Armed Forces (Saf) on Tuesday announced the beginning of a ground campaign to march on the Sudanese capital to 'eliminate' the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (#RSF).

since I started reading a bit about whats happening in #Sudan, I feel frustrated bc compared to other crises, it isn't talked about in my circles in euro land.
but feelings, as understandable as they are, are not always correct. everyone is doing what they can. Empathy, activism and solidarity should not be a resource that we're jealous of.
those wo go and are active - keep it up + thank you :heart_gq:
those who can't - it's ok, don't beat yourself up 🍵
They know that there’s a bottomless well of self￼-pity among white women in particular, and that can always be exploited to keep the sideshow going.

La guerra in #Sudan è sempre più feroce e sempre meno raccontata
"Più di 10mila vittime, tra cui centinaia di civili: ci sono 4,8 milioni di persone sfollate all’interno del paese, e altre 1,2 milioni che sono fuggite negli Stati vicini."
Da bleiben einige Fragen offen: Wer hat denn diesen #Krieg mit unvorstellbar hohen Zahlen von #Flüchtlinge‘n und #Tote’n im #Sudan #vergessen? Meine Nachrichtenquelle sind die Hauptmedien - haben Sie, liebe @tagesschau , die Berichterstattung „vergessen“? Oder hat der #UNHCR vergessen das zu thematisieren? „… Tausende seien bereits massakriert worden, weil sie zur falschen #Ethnie gehören - und niemand scheine das wahrzunehmen.“ An wen richtet sich denn dieser Appell?
Krise im Sudan: "Der größte vergessene Krieg unserer Zeit"
Ein halbes Jahr dauern die Kämpfe zwischen der sudanesischen Armee und gegnerischen Melizen bereits an. Sechs Millionen Menschen mussten fliehen und stehen vor dem Nichts. Nun droht auch noch eine Hungerkrise. Von Anna Osius.

"Fears are growing as pressure mounts on El Fasher after the RSF seized army garrisons in Nyala, Zalingei and El Geneina in late October and took control of El Daein on Tuesday, making El Fasher the last redoubt of the #Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) in Greater #Darfur... It is likely that the military confrontation in the city, if it occurs, will have serious humanitarian, political and economic consequences..."
Fears of all-out ethnic war rise in Sudan’s Darfur
Something real for the Israel-hating 'genocide' squad:
"Sudan refugees detail second wave of bloody ethnic purge by Arab forces"
"Arab-led RSF forces have pressed ahead this month with their expulsion of Sudan's ethnic-African Masalit tribe from West Darfur. Survivors described large-scale killings of Masalit captives at a soccer field and a bridge in the regional capital. As assaults mount, some fear a possible partition of the country."

Jürgen: "Ja, eh, einen schönen Sonntag in die Runde. Ehm... ich hab ein bisschen #Sorge, dass die #Diskussion unehrlich wird. Mir ist gerade noch ein Satz aufgefallen, der ganz zu Ende fiel und der lautete: "Die ukrainischen #Flüchtlinge, die wir nehmen, stehen völlig außer Frage" und dann kam noch ein kurzer Nachsatz "#Kriegsflüchtlinge überhaupt." Erklären Sie mir den Unterschied zwischen ukrainischen Flüchtlingen und denen, die in #Somalia vor dem Krieg fliehen, die im #Sudan vor dem Krieg fliegen, in #Eriea, in #Libyen vor dem #Bürgerkrieg. Ich könnte könnte Ihnen ja sonst was alles erzählen. Geht es da um die #Hautfarbe? Oder geht es um Kriegsflüchtlinge überhaupt? Und wollen Sie mir wirklich erzählen, wir können dreihunderttausend in unserem Land nicht aufnehmen, können aber eine Million aus der #Ukraine versorgen? Ich sag' ihnen was: man kann #beide versorgen. Man kann beide Gruppen versorgen. Wir sind nämlich ein #reiches Land. Der #Reichtum ist nur falsch verteilt. Das ist meine #Meinung zum Sonntag."
