LIVES AT STAKE

SOUTH-SUDAN DURING THE LIBERATION STRUGGLE

Norwegian People's Aid's decision to support the liberation struggle spearheaded by SPLM/A in Sudan, in 1987, was controversial. The author of this book, Halle Jorn Hanssen, was the Secretary General of NPA when the liberation struggle intensified during the 1990ies, and rumours about NPA's role flourished. This book provides an insight into the dramatic humanitarian work that was carried out to save lives in South Sudan. 

The book is particularly exciting and worth reading because the drama of a liberation war is put into a wider political context. It takes the reader close to the central actors in the struggle, and the game behind the scene, through stories told by people that took part. 

Some of the stories are beyond imagination. One of them is about the poisonous gas attack a few miles away from the NPA Hospital in Yei, in August 1999. Doctor Gribani tells the story: «We understood that something terrible had happened. People came running terror-stricken, telling us that several planes had dropped bombs. This time, however, the bombs exploded in a different manner, there was a mute explosion and thereafter a stinking smell. Human beings and animals got ill. One elderly man died. Women had spontaneous abortions. Birds fell dead from the trees. Smaller animals died after a short while. The grass withered and died. I understood that this was a poisonous gas attack and instructed competent personal immediately to go to the area and take samples of dead animals, blood, urine, grass and soil.». The news travelled across the world, but was followed by total silence. WHY?
