The Anya-Nya Liberation Movement, 1955–72

Part of the St Antony’s Series book series (STANTS)


Relations between South Sudan and Northern Sudan declined steadily from 1952 onwards. Northern Sudanese did not want to engage with the South in relationships that could be perceived as mutual, let alone equal. The North in many senses enjoyed the fact that they had inherited the South from the British without responsibility, even daring to blame the British for the South’s exclusion from state power. They blamed the British, or colonialism in general, for everything the South Sudanese did against the North. According to this argument, all South Sudanese demands, including federation with the North or full participation in the political public life of their country, were inspired by the imperialist past.
