U.S. Should Suspend Normalization Talks with Sudan Regime; Impose Global Magnitsky Sanctions

The Enough Project strongly denounces the deadly violence the Sudanese regime has unleashed against peaceful protesters and supports the aspirations of the people of Sudan as they protest against three decades of mass atrocities and institutional corruption under the autocratic rule of President Omar al-Bashir. We call on the U.S. government, European governments, the African Union, and the broader international community to hold the Khartoum regime accountable for the many lives lost, injuries sustained, and countless protesters detained and tortured as the regime attempts to silence the Sudanese peoples’ struggle for democracy and good governance.
