Counter-revolution in Sudan

On 4 June 2019, the day of the 30th anniversary of Tiananmen Square massacre, counter-revolutionary forces allied to the ruling regime in Sudan launched a violent attack on the two month-long mass opposition occupation outside the military barracks in Khartoum. Deaths and many injuries are reported.

As the Socialist Party and CWI previously warned, unless the revolution which removed the dictator al-Bashir also overthrew the rest of the ruling class, then the prospect of bloody counter-revolution at some stage remained a constant danger.

To avoid a bloodbath and a coup d'état similar to the al-Sisi crackdown in Egypt, the working class must forge a mass independent party with the aim of carrying through a socialist transformation of society. Such a party could win over the rank and file soldiers to the side of the revolution and destroy the capitalist state.

In other words, a struggle modelled on the successful October 1917 revolution in Russia led by the Bolsheviks.
