Here is their full statement:
We, the SPLM/A Youth league both in south Sudan and in the diaspora, would like to give a stern warning to sisterly countries who have appeared to be fighting alongside and supplying weapons to Gen Salva Kiir’s atrocious regime against the South Sudanese people.
They must with immediate effect halt from partaking such a mischievous, irresponsible and inacceptable act; for it is an absolute contravention of our country’s territorial integrity and that of the international laws.
Egypt’s involvement will regionalise the conflict
We would like to inform the world at large and the South Sudanese that involvement of Egypt in particular may regionalise the conflict which can turn our nation into a leading war zone.
You all know that, one of the major root causes of the conflict in 1983 was the digging of the Jonglei canal with an intention to flow more waters to Egypt and deny the region of its lives, diversity and especially, a plan to resettle two and a half million Egyptian farmers known as (Fellahin) along the canal.
This would have displaced the whole population of the upper Nile region and deny them their traditional livelihood by then.
Today, Salva wants to do the same by bringing Egyptia closer to Ethiopia such that Great Upper Nile turns into a war zone between these two great nations.
Should they fail to heed to this important appeal, South Sudanese people will deal with them squarely in the same measure.
We urge them to undertake a neutral and impartial position in this crisis as they did during our 50 years of struggle for what was then a fight for united, secular democratic Nation.
Anything less than that will be deemed as hypocrisy and a deliberate scheme to sabotage the ongoing peace efforts; and also endanger the lives of their respective citizenry living in South Sudan.
It is not in our interest whatsoever to return to war in which most of us were born and participated because we know the ultimate repercussion that comes with war.
Nevertheless, notwithstanding the grave results that may come with war, we vowed never to be cowed by any attempt to return us to those dark and regrettable days.
Kiir’s totalitarian approach
Salva Kiir has fallen short of people aspirations that he lives his life by purporting to become an indigenous oppressor only two years after independence.
He must be let know that never, ever shall we succumb to his totalitarianism.
He has so far lost legitimacy by ordering the killing of 20, 000 innocent members of the Nuer community and members of other communities on the December 16-18, 2013.
The nation demands for his immediate and unconditional resignation for South Sudanese people to pave the path for peace.
Our Movement, the SPLM/SPLA led by Dr. Riek Machar is committed to finding an inclusive peaceful dialogue.
We still have the confidence in the ongoing dialogue auspices by Intergovernmental Authority for Development (IGAD).
As Eric Reeve puts it ‘‘it is so evident that the price of international diplomatic failure and facil moral and diplomatic equivocation is now and will soon be paid in more innocent blood and suffering by many hundreds of thousands of civilians in South Sudan”.
Hundreds of thousands have already been brought to the brink of starvation because there is no will to confront Salva Kiir’s oppressive regime over its intransigent refusal to allow humanitarian access to all the areas under the control of our movement.
Additionally, more than half a million are forced militarily from their homes since 2013…….remain displaced and in poor conditions as refugees in their own country.
Youth to swap peace for a full scale war
We, the SPLM/A Youth league, if worse come to worse, are more than ready to put down our appeal for finding a peaceful solution, but rather to mobilise our people both at home and in the diaspora to rush back home and join the rest of South Sudanese in the fight to oust Salva Kiir’s dictatorial, puppet regime.
It is better we all die for this cause which our martyrs had perished for than to see our country being taken by materialistic greedy individuals.
We have done it in the past and we would do it again.
Finally, if the world is indeed serious in solving this standoff, then we recommend the following to be promptly expedited:
1. Withdrawal of all foreign mercenaries fighting alongside Salva Kiir. That is Egypt, Uganda, JEM, SPLM North and any other force that is not mentioned.
2. All the above mentioned countries to refrain from supporting Salva Kiir but to be neutral.
3. To immediately and unconditionally free the four SPLM/A Leaders who are still under Salva Kiir’s captivity.
4. To craft a sounding proposal that suggests the interim government and unconditional resignation of Salva Kiir.
5. To facilitate the work of the investigation commission led by former Negirian President Olugasan Obasango so to assure the public that those who orchestrated the massacre in juba and elsewhere are brought to law for crime against humanity committed.
6. To allow equal humanitarian access to all the areas under SPLM/SPLA control.
7. We suggest the involvement of the international community in this dialogue so as to get a viable permanent solution in this crisis not to escalate the war further.
8. We stopping the deployment of the so call deterrence forces or oil interest forces.
9. Calling for the cancellation of SPLM conference of dividend policies and concentrate on the national agenda of prevailing peace to the people of South Sudan because the country is more important than a party.
