Summary

"Dressed in army uniforms at a community hall in Western Sydney in 2013, supporters of the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) practice marching before returning inside the hall to perform at an event marking the 30th anniversary of the SPLA. The SPLA was founded as a guerrilla movement in 1983 and led by John Garang de Mabior. Since South Sudan's independence in 2011 the SPLA has become divided and conflict has ensued with major factions aligning with Dinka President Kiir and many others following Nuer former Vice-President Machar who now leads the SPLA-IO (in opposition). After a 18-month war that has ravaged the world's newest country, the two leaders Kiir and Machar signed a peace deal on August 27th 2015."--Information supplied by photographer.
