Abstract:The government of Sudan is inflicting appalling suffering on several million of its citizens, almost all non-Arab Sudanese from the south and west of the country who are displaced from their homes, through a systematic and brutal policy of forcible change of cultural identity, discrimination through the law, the demolition of their houses and forced relocation. This report is based upon the testimonies of displaced Sudanese. It contains some of the first direct evidence for the existence of the Sudan government's forced acculturation camps. It also analyses the historical and political context of the policy of abuse. This policy is the product of decades of government policies encouraging migration, and a facet of the ambitious programme of the current government, which is dominated by the Moslem Brothers, for the complete social transformation of Sudan. The displaced people in the north have remained largely invisible to both the international community and to Sudanese politicians.
