ADVISORY: Girifna student leader in Khartoum, Enough Project researcher in Juba and U.S. advocacy groups to join press briefing on Sudan election
Sudan Now’s press calls are being held each day this week at 10 a.m. Eastern Time. The calls are largely devoted to questions from journalists after very brief opening statements from the guest speakers. According to the Sudan Now campaign, the current implementation of the U.S. policy on Sudan has not addressed a number of extremely concerning developments including clear indications that the national election is neither free nor fair, ongoing government attacks that have killed hundreds and displaced thousands in recent months, and ongoing obstruction by the Government of Sudan in access for aid workers and UN investigators to Darfur.
