Amnesty International is mobilizing against the deportation of two people arrested in Calais on 25th of October during the destruction of the shantytown to Sudan and flights scheduled to Khartoum (see here and there).
A presentation of their situation and a campaign via twitter are online here:
Amnesty International also asks people to contact the Minister of the Interior by e-mail:
“We urgently need your help.
Two young Sudanese men, Ibrahim and Baker, are at risk of being expelled at any time by France to conflict zones in Sudan.
Ibrahim already has a scheduled flight tomorrow Saturday [flight was cancelled, but another flight is scheduled for Tuesday].
Help us to strengthen our pressure on the Minister of the Interior to decide to interrupt the deportation process.
You can call the minister through Twitter:
Or send the message below to Bernard Cazeneuve : firstname.lastname@example.org
Do not forget to send us a copy : email@example.com
Thank you for your help
Monsieur le ministre,
Je vous écris pour vous demander d’interrompre l’expulsion de deux ressortissants Soudanais, Ibrahim C et Baker A, actuellement détenus au centre de rétention de Vincennes et pouvant faire l’objet à tout moment d’un éloignement du territoire.
Ibrahim C et Baker A sont respectivement originaires du Darfour et du Kordofan du Sud, deux Etats du Soudan où la guerre sévit depuis des années, et où les civils sont victimes de violations graves de leurs droits humains. S’ils sont renvoyés vers Khartoum, Ibrahim C et Baker A risquent en outre de subir des mauvais traitements de la part des services de sécurité soudanais.
La France est tenue, en vertu de la convention de 1951 relative au statut des réfugiés et de la Charte des droits fondamentaux de l’Union européenne, de ne pas renvoyer des personnes vers des pays où elles seraient exposées à des risques de violations graves de leurs droits humains.
Je vous remercie par avance de prendre en compte ma demande en interrompant les procédures d’expulsion en cours.
Je vous prie d’agréer, Monsieur le ministre, l’expression de ma haute considération. » “
(translation for info)
I am writing to ask you to interrupt the deportation of two Sudanese nationals, Ibrahim C and Baker A, who are currently detained at the Vincennes detention center and who may be deported from the territory at any time.
Ibrahim C and Baker A are respectively from Darfur and South Kordofan, two states of Sudan where war has been rampant for years, and civilians are the victims of serious human rights violations. If they are sent back to Khartoum, Ibrahim C and Baker A are also at risk of being mistreated by the Sudanese security services.
France is required by the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union not to return persons to countries where they are at risk of serious violations of their human rights.
I thank you in advance for taking my request into account by interrupting the deportation procedures in progress.
The European Court of Human Rights has rejected Ibrahim’s suspension review, who has a new flight scheduled for Tuesday, 22nd November. It is looking at Baker’s. Both have yet to be presented to the Judge of Freedoms and Detention tomorrow 20th of October and still have an appeal before the administrative court concerning Sudan as the country of destination.
Three more people who are locked up at the CRA at Vincennes have been presented to the Sudanese ambassador for deportation to that country.
Last Thursday, 25 August 2016, Italy has started sending migrants back to Sudan on special chartered flights, with 48 suadenes refugees already deported.
Sudanese and Italian authorities are working together to tackle the so-called migrant crisis. This deportation is clearly part of the cooperation between the Sudanese dictatorship regime and the EU, which was started a long time ago with “Khartoum process” http://www.aedh.eu/The-Khartoum-Process-a-new-step-in.html
And at the same time the whole world knows that President Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir is wanted for war crimes and crimes against humanity be the International Criminal Court (ICC) and is abusing human rights on all levels. Amnesty International says about the human rights situation in Sudan 2015/16: “The authorities repressed the media, civil society organisations and opposition political parties, severely curtailing freedoms of expression, association and assembly. Armed conflict in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile states continued to cause mass displacement and civilian casualties; human rights abuses were perpetrated by all parties to these conflicts. Government forces destroyed civilian buildings, including schools, hospitals and clinics in conflict areas, and obstructed humanitarian access to civilians needing support because of the ongoing hostilities.” (https://www.amnesty.org/en/countries/africa/sudan/report-sudan/) And after all that, we see that Italy and the EU are working together with this dictatorship to deport the victims of the Sudanese regime back!
It is absolutely unacceptable that the Italian authorities broke the law by allowing Sudanese officials to choose migrants to be deported. That gave Sudanese officials the opportunity to choose the politically active refugees and bring them back to torture and prisons. We as activist in Germany from Sudan demand:
1) Stop all kind of cooperation between EU member states and the Sudanese dictatorship now!
2) An officials clarification from Italian authorities immediately and provision of proof of its legitimacy of the deportations which have been carried out No border no nation, stop all kinds of deportation! No to any cooperation between the EU and the Sudanese dictatorship!

During the second Sudanese civil war that went on for 22 years, Omar al-Bashir assumed power in 1989. Al-Bashir is the first and only officiating president worldwide who is wanted for genocide, war crime and crimes against humanity. Unimpeded by the UNAMID stationed in Darfur, the regime committed numerous human rights violations, such as expulsions of whole villages, aimed destructions of livelihoods, arbitrary torture, execution, abuse and mass rape in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

Sudanese refugee’s action in Sudanese embassy in Berlin
We are eleven refugee-activists from Berlin-Oranienplatz and Hannover-Weissekreuzplatz. On November 19th 2015 we entered the Sudanese embassy in Berlin at 12pm to protest inside and to talk to the embassador about the situation in Sudan. The Sudanese embassador refused to talk to us and the staff called the police. We went to the window, opened it and held our banner against Omar Al-Bshir outside for everyone to see „murderer, assasinator, leave!“. Inside the embassy we didn’t break anything or hurt anyone. We just came to talk peacefully to the embassador. When the police came they told us that they would lead us to the Sudandese embassador, but instead they led us outside and closed the door. So we continued our protest outside near the entrance of the embassy. We spontaneously registered a rally for three hours. We handed out flyers to passer-bys and shouted our demands: „Al-Bshir to ICC!“, „Stop the war in Sudan!“ „Yes for peace, no for war!“. The police took down our personal data. At around 3 pm we finished our protest and left. But we will continue our fight for a free and democratic Sudan!
We are Sudanese refugees and activists who have today decided to occupy our Sudanese embassy in Berlin. This is peaceful, direct political action.
We are taking a stand against the Sudanese regime.
The Sudanese dictator, Omar Hassan al-Bshir, rose to power in 1989 in a bloody military coup. He is a war criminal who has been summoned to the International Criminal Court on charges of genocide in Darfur, Blue Nile and the Nuba Mountains.
Al-Bshir leads an Islamic regime in Sudan that instigated the longest war ever waged in Africa. Al-Bshir persecuted the South Sudanese in the name of religion. As a result of this war, Sudan has now been split into two countries.
Although the war has ended, crimes against political activists are ongoing. The Sudanese people are still being unlawfully detained, tortured and murdered.
On 29th September 2015, the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva stated that the Sudanese regime is still guilty of human rights abuses, such as detainment without charge, torture and even the murder of demonstrators in September 2013.
As Sudanese activists in Germany, we make these demands to Sudan, to Germany, and to the International Criminal Court:
Extradite al-Bshir and the high officials of the Sudanese regime to the International Criminal court – so that they may stand trial for war crimes and genocide.
Germany must break its commercial ties with, and economic support for, Sudan. This support funds genocidal action.
The German authorities must grant asylum to all Sudanese refugees in Germany.
Close down the Sudanese embassy in Berlin, because it does not support the rights and needs of the Sudanese people.
These demands are made with a vision for a peaceful, safe and democratic Sudan.
With a peaceful Sudan, we will no longer need to be standing here as refugees.

Call for Action at the Norwegian embassy in Berlin on June 16th, 1pm
Norway collaborates with the Sudanese Dictator Omar Al Bashir to enable him to kill and torture members of the oppositional groups:
About one month ago Oslo hosted delegates and members of Omar Al Bashir Militia and National Intelligence Security Services (NISS) – they covered them under the title authorities for Sudanese Interiors Affairs). Their mission was to facilitate the deportation process of political activists and victims of the war in Darfur. Norway imprisoned about 20 of those refugees from Sudan in Oslo, and they already deported six of them back to Sudan. Insiders confirmed that two of them were arrested immediately after their arrival in Sudan and that they are kept in NISS’ jails until now. Noone knows about their situation in prison. The other two had been arrested and tortured for 8 hours before they were released. The last two disappeared.
