My statement on 9th July 2014.
Today we are championing the right of the people of South Sudan for Federal Democratic system of governance and again it is being led by the same hero Dr Riek Machar Teny who always distinguish himself with the aspirations and the dreams of the common man. I am calling on the free people of greater Equatoria and all the people of south sudan who are still under salvatocratic and dictatorial rule in juba and elsewhere to boycott the shameful and bloody celebration on the graves and bones of our innocent civilian murdered in cold blood by Kiir and his militias. We should not take part in this genocidal celebration where lives of civilian continue to be at risky. The shoot to kill curfew on the violators is the testimony to the cruelty and the intent of the Kiir regime to continue committing mass murder against our civil population. In this important day, we must give tributes and salutations to our hero and founder of our nation Dr John Garang De Mabior, the SPLM/SPLA- Resistant Movement and to the freedom fighters on this great day.
Tomorrow Cde chairman will be addressing the people of South Sudan and the freedom fighters around the world to mark the independent day of our beloved nation. If you have candles tomorrow comrades, please light three candles. One for the heroes and heroines who fought for the independent of our nation and another candle for victims of Juba, Bor, Bentiu and Malakal genocide and the other for the great freedom fighters who continue to sacrifice their lives for the freedom of others and to establish the free, just, prosperous and federal democratic South Sudan where equality, justice and freedom prevail. May God bless all of you as we commemorate this great and historical day in lives.
Victory is certain.Puoch Riek Deng President
