Fighting in Sudan has continued for nearly two weeks since it began on April 15, when violence broke out between the country's army and a paramilitary group called the Rapid Support Forces. The two are engaged in a power struggle over who gets to run the nation.

"There is no invading army to save either side in the current counter revolutionary war in the Sudan. Both sides will fight to the death to remain in power," says Horace Campbell, professor of political science.

"Progressive forces internationally must call for the arrest and trial of the military forces that have unleashed genocidal violence on the Sudanese peoples since 1989," Campbell writes. "The Resistance Committees’ and the popular forces are calling for solidarity and non-intervention to push the process of transition from militarism to one where the peoples of Sudan can enter into new relations."
