South Sudan: Tensions spiral after security forces clampdown on Wau protests
Here is the link to the article: http://www.amnesty.org/en/news/south-sudan-tensions-spiral-after-security-forces-clampdown-wau-protests-2013-02-20
earth should be treated equal. Everyone should have right to speak out.
However, for people lived in South Sudan’s, their undeniable rights weretrampled by
their government. The conflict started when the government decided to move Wau
County headquarters from Wau to Bagari. Many people step out to protest.
However, they were arrested arbitrarily by their government which contravenes
the law in South Sudan. Some protestant even were killed. It is really astonish
that 11 people lost their life in movement in two days. Ironically, the
murderers are those who wearing the uniforms of “security force” in Sudan. They
didn’t protect people, which should be their duty; instead, they become the “lacquer”
of government. I think The government of Sudan is taking a dangerous step. They tried
to control their people and made them obedient. Blooding killing and illegal
arresting may scar some people and make they follow the order and being obedient
temporary. However, if the government think they can control the situation and keeping doing whatever they want, then they would
find out that they are wrong. People’s anger and eager for freedom hide in their heart and being
accumulated every day when they witness what their government did to them. One
day, the anger would erupt and turns into unstoppable power. The more
person were arrested, the closer the government would be to its ending.
Everyone should be treated equal despite their position or property. No government
should control their citizen, and it is impossible to completely control people.
The history gives us sufficient of failure example for dictator. Taking rights
from people is equal to suicide.
