June 30, 2019
Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, issued the following statement denouncing the continued violence of the Sudanese security forces against peaceful protestors.

"It is unacceptable for Sudanese security forces to shoot peaceful protesters who only want a civilian-led government. The people of Sudan have the right to assemble and demand that the Sudanese security forces negotiate without being killed or wounded. We stand with the African Union and the international community in demanding that the security forces stop assaulting their citizens and go back to the negotiating table. The violence against the people of Sudan is intolerable and will be met with severe consequences."
