Sudan After the Loss of the South
Yasir Arman, Secretary-General, SPLM-North
As Secretary-General of SPLM-North, Yasir Arman is one of the leading opposition politicians in Sudan. Since South Sudan gained independence in July, SPLM-North has been banned by the Sudanese government, and deadly fighting in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states has led to many of Arman’s party colleagues going into hiding. Yasir Arman will speak about the prospects for a broad opposition alliance in Sudan, and for finding a resolution to Sudan’s challenges.
