Sudanese youth call for separation

In lead-up to referendum, south Sudanese air their call for independence.



    Many young people in southern Sudan have joined the campaign for independence, and they are airing their message on their own radio station.

    The station was created by a group allied to the youth wing of the ruling SPLM.

    Calling themselves the South Sudan Youth For Separation, members of the group say they are in search of a separate homeland for the South Sudanese.

    But as Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Juba, southern Sudan, the group is still struggling to make their voices heard.
