#An Appeal to the Neighbourhood Resistance Committees and the revolutionary professional forces. 

Reports of the putschist forces preparing to block the internet, after having arrested the majority of the Council of Ministers and Sovereign Council, suggests a plan to hide their repressive, terroristic tactics. Such tactics bring back memories of the Security Committee and Janjaweed militia, following the military headquarters massacre of June 2019.

We call on the Resistance Committees and the revolutionary professional, trade union, political, student, and popular forces to ready themselves, and to activate their tools of communication, organisation, and networking in their given locales. 

Again, we call on all such forces to go to the streets and occupy them, with a declaration of resistance and total civil disobedience in the face of the military coup.

The Revolution is a Revolution of the People; all Power and Wealth to the People. 

No to the Military Coup!
