News and Films From Sudan’s Frontline (Beta)

Make it news

Journalists are banned from the Nuba mountains. This makes it extremely difficult for International media to cover the war and it’s impact on civilians. Nuba Reports brings together local journalists with professional editors and mentors in order to produce verifiable and compelling dispatches from the front lines.
But for the model to work, we need your help. Make this hidden conflict visible. Make it news.

Fighting broke out in June 2011 between Sudan’s government and Nuban rebels. Nuba Reports was founded by people living in the region after journalists and NGOs were banned. Our goal is to provide Sudan and the International community with credible and compelling dispatches from the front lines of this conflict and to illuminate the war’s impact on civilians. more

    For over two years Sudan’s government has waged a bombing campaign against civilian it accuses of supporting Nuban rebels. Cheap shrapnel bombs are dropped out of Antontov cargo plans nearly every day. The campaign has terrorized the people of the Nuba mountains, forcing many to flee, and making it difficult for others to plant and tend their farms. Nuba Reports journalists only record bombings directed at civilian targets. Each bombing is verified by eyewitness accounts and site visits. There are many attacks in South Kordofan too remote and dangerous to reach that can not be recorded.
