Massacre remembered - video

A massacre was committed by the authorities in Port Sudan in January 2005, where 22 Beja citizens were immediately shot dead, and more than 400 injured, including women and children. This amounts to a crime against humanity, racial cleansing, mass murder. This happened when the Beja citizen of Port Sudan organized a peaceful demonstration demanding peace, federal rule, end of marginalization, development to their region and democracy. Includes a brief review of life in the east. [Narrated in Arabic]

In 2009, Dr. Abu Amna released a letter on behalf of the Beja Congress, appealling to democratic lawyers to help bring the perpetrators of these killings to justice.
