RE: RESPONSE OF EQUATORIA COMMUNITY IN THE UK TO THE RECENT DECLARATION OF THE NATIONAL SALVATION FRONT

On the 6 Mar 2017, Lt. Gen. Thomas Cirillo Swaka announced the establishment of the National Salvation Front (NAS). In his declaration, Gen. Cirillo called for a unified resistance against the destructive regime of President Salva Kiir Mayardit.

The declaration was followed by words of encouragement from the leadership of the People’s Democratic Movement, the South Sudan Democratic Front and the National Democratic Movement. In a statement, the deputy leader of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Opposition, Henry Odwar, declared that he “shall be engaging [Gen. Cirillo] and other opposition parties in order to forge a common platform for ending the regime in Juba”.

We are heartened by this demonstration of genuine solidarity. The Equatorian Community Organisation in the UK has consistently encouraged cooperation among Equatorians, and all the peoples of South Sudan, in defiance of the devastating campaign of violence, discrimination and repression perpetrated by Salva Kiir and his regime, against innocent citizens the length and breadth of our country.

We commend those committed to ending the suffering that has been inflicted on the people of South Sudan, by Salva Kiir’s regime, for recognising that theirs is a common cause. By working constructively with each other, in the spirit of cooperation and shared endeavour, the South Sudanese people may drive out the destructive regime before it can inflict further damage to the social fabric of our beloved country.

By forging a unity of purpose, relief and justice can be brought to the countless families who have seen their lives shattered by violence, displacement, exile, starvation and neglect.

    I congratulate you all the ECO in UK we must all unite as south Sudanese to over come this notorious and horrible regime of President Salva Kirr and his allies. Compatriot salva and his elite of JEC are not patriotic nor even have good objectives to this young nation they are inviting the Regional Wolf to come and destroy our country to keep them on their seats while sponsoring their children’s education in those countries which they call their friends and good neighbors not knowing that these countries are draining our economy
