To the extent that the revolution strengthened the confidence of the Sudanese people in themselves and their ability to challenge oppression and overthrow the regimes of domination and oppression and created a solid ground for conflict with dictatorships later followed by the revolutions of April 1985 and December 2019, these important political transformations have A valid ground for the benefit of the struggles of other peoples in the near African and Arab ocean was reflected on the one hand and also deepened the feelings of solidarity between the people of the region in general and the Arab world and created a ground for cohesion and support for the rights of the Palestinian people and Arab rights in general and the protection of the fundamental issues of the nation on the other.
On the Eritrean level, the October Revolution has characterized the Eritrean people and restored in the Sudanese arena their struggle as a national liberation movement and part of the Arab Revolution movement, formed in the atmosphere of freedom, fraternity and sympathy created by associations of friendship with the Eritrean people and the bonds supporting their struggle and their right to freedom and independence.
Yes, we live today a reality similar to the situation of the Eritrean struggle in the first half of the 1960s, when the October Revolution triumphed and returned in the atmosphere of its victory balance to the established relationship between the two peoples after the regime of General Abboud put it in the opposite direction, and at the same time at the global level we live a single pole system in which the approach of support and methods changed He witnessed a dangerous surge of financial, political, media, educational and technical assistance to send heavily armed forces and even to bring to power the tanks, which the Eritreans would not and would not accept, even if the struggle extended to them for hundreds more years.
I say that the reality today is posed to the political components in Sudan with the same question posed by the atmosphere of the victory of the popular revolution in October, so i addressed the Sudanese political components then or – say most of them – in principle, I say the same question returns now and it is put by the atmosphere of the victory of the December revolution on the facades of the Sudanese people and their political entities and I am waiting to see how the answer will be this time.
If the October Revolution is a station from which people draw more lessons and lessons and are equipped with all the meanings of determination, sacrifice and ransom to get rid of all forms of restrictions, then its makers – the people of Sudan – should be supporting those seeking freedom and fighting for democracy in the region so that the current revolution and democracy in Sudan can be secured with a fence similar to it and complementary to its purposes in the region.
