Two Sudanese opposition parties, yesterday, condemned what they described as "systematic and deadly violence against recent peaceful demonstrations" in the capital city of Khartoum.
The condemnations came in separate statements by the National Umma Party, and the Teachers' Committee, after seven protesters were killed and dozens injured by security forces.
"We strongly condemn today's massacre, and warn against the consequences of this systematic and deadly violence against the protesters," the Umma Party said in a statement, holding the military responsible for the "bloodshed and lives lost."
The party stressed that the armed forces and security officers must "protect the homeland and its citizens, instead of killing and attacking them."
On its part, the Sudanese Congress Party described the sovereignty council as a "dictatorial authority that lacks human values and principles," calling on revolutionaries "to barricade main streets across the country."
The Sudanese Teachers' Committee called for a sit-in against "injustice and murder and civil disobedience."
Sudan's forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change have also called for a "comprehensive civil disobedience for a period of two days, in response to the protestors' killings."
On Monday, the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, as well as other cities, witnessed protests calling for "full civilian rule."
