The members of the Sudan Appeal have called for an urgent international intervention to stop the aerial bombardments on Sudanese civilians, and end the war in which the Khartoum regime targets the people in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile states.

Sarah Nugdallah, the secretary-general of the National Umma Party (NUP, one of the allied opposition forces) told Radio Dabanga that this campaign is meant to “reveal the violations by the ruling regime in several Sudanese provinces”. She said it also raises awareness throughout the country, about the effects of war and conflict, being social, psychological, political and economic impacts nationwide.

The campaign is to include symposiums and activities in different cities in Sudan, in addition to working together with all sectors and community or religious leaders.

Nugdallah also pointed out that the Sudan Appeal's campaign aims to contribute to the expansion of the masses which call for ending the war and achieve a peaceful, democratic transformation.

The Sudan Appeal members, representatives of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) rebel alliance, the NUP, the National Consensus Forces (NCF, a coalition of opposition parties), and the Civil Society Initiative (CSI), planned to meet in Strasbourg, France, to develop its strategy. Several politicians were not allowed to travel by the Sudanese security service.
