🇸🇩 Sudan Protests: Will Omar al-Bashir fall? | The Stream



Fed up by what they see as Sudan’s worsening economic situation, anti-government demonstrators are continuing their call for the resignation of longtime leader President Omar al-Bashir. The marches, which have occurred almost daily in Khartoum and other cities for more than two weeks, have the support of the country’s professional unions and opposition political parties. On Thursday, a prominent member of Bashir’s National Congress Party also called for the Bashir to step down.

Some of the demonstrations have turned deadly and destructive. In Atbara, the ruling party’s headquarters were set on fire. Last week security forces fired live ammunition and tear gas at demonstrators attempting to march to the presidential palace in Khartoum. According to the government, at least 19 protesters have been killed since December while the human rights group Amnesty International estimated the death toll to be at 37.

Protests started on December 19, after an increase in the price of bread and they have since grown into larger rallies against alleged corruption and government mismanagement during Bashir’s nearly 30-year rule. People in Sudan are also dealing with fuel shortages and currency devaluation.

In a recent address marking the nation’s 63rd independence day, President Bashir spoke of new development projects and policies “aimed at lessening the people’s suffering”.

So will the latest protests create any improvement in living conditions for the Sudanese people, and what type of change do citizens want for their country?

  20. Keep as much crap in the news as possible so nothing gets done with Washington's plus 1,500 member elite pedophile clique. Traffic the kids, rape some, kill some, drink some adrenalin rich blood and protect each other. Do not let the deplorables demand drainage of the SWAMP !!!!!

  21. The woman with the pink top needs to go back to Africa and stop appropriating British language. Britain is for ethnic Brits only! All blacks and browns back to Africa!

    13bloodline, Freemasons, higher level Illuminati members and etc satanic members around the worlds, is the mastermind of assassination president John F Kennedy !
    Global community come together as one planet citizens voice, one action and stand up for France. Is time to wake up for revolution clean the worlds of corruption and destroy the corrupt governments around the world and new worlds order members & Islamic extremists ! Save the world and future generations!!! Fight for our future and future humanity!!!
    Global community we will win this war !

  25. 'Dictator for life' is a disaster. It has no place in the world! So much bloodshed can be avoided in the developing world if states moved to democratic system with constitutional rights, separation of powers, and checks and balances.

  26. "Men are protectors of women because God has made some of them excel others and because they spend their wealth on them,..
    If they both want to set things right God will bring about a reconciliation between them :He is all knowing and all aware."
    A good woman is one who conducting herself according to God's plan, accepts the role of man as leader.
    Similarly a good man is one who discharging his role does not forget that God is always watching him.
    The divine court of Judgement does not differentiate between man and women.
    The gender based differences is ment only to ensure the effective management of worldly life and bears no relation to the requital and rewards of the Hereafter.
    When two persons have differences between them their minds become prejudiced.
    In such a situation the best way of resolving the matter is to bring in an arbiter who is not involved with the issue personally,
    And who will be able to think without bias and reach a decision based on the facts of the case.

  27. If it can take up to an hour for people to acces their money then let them protest

  28. AS AN AFRICAN THE MAIN PROBLEM THAT I SEE WITH THE CONTINENT IS THAT THE AGING POPULATION THAT'S IN POWER ISNT GIVING THE YOUNGER POPULATION A CHANCE TO HAVE SELF GOVERNANCE. THIS IS HAPPENING ALL OVER AFRICA … SUDAN, UGANDA, RDC TO MENTION BUT A FEW. THE CURRENT PRESIDENTS HOLDING ON TO POWER IN THESE COUNTRIES, REMIND YOU ENTERED OFFICE AS WEES AND THEY HAD GREAT IDEAS FOR THAT TIME BUT THEY SHOULD APPRECIATE THE TIMES HAVE CHANGED! THEY NEED TO STEP DOWN AND GIVE A CHANCE TO THE CONTINENT TO MOVE FORWARD WITH FRESH MINDS.
    THE CURRENT LEADERS IN THESE COUNTRIES ARE OBSOLETE!!

  29. Take back all this Sudanese trash that Obama dump into the heartlands of America , we don't want that worthless trash .

  30. Thank you AJ . Follow the story more closely tomorrow on 9th is going to be a big protest !

  31. The real problem can't be always blamed on those outside. When you look at the average IQ of a country in this case a continent it tells all, https://brainstats.com/average-iq-by-country.html

  32. So these protesters didn’t care about the 300,000 he already slaughtered in Darfur?

  33. Why is Sudan having protests? Sudanese Demonstrators
    Should be thankful of the Sudan Government. Demonstrators
    should be arrested

  34. The regime defender is a liar. He should learn english properly first.

  35. Sending love from the UK. Im so proud that the people of Sudan are standing up for themselves, praise God.

  36. This all the Results from Yankees and Jewish meddling in others countries affairs!
    We really have to get rid of this filthy Zionic Entity's worldwide!

  37. However I struggle to put this guy' 's words together ( the regime's lawyer) in order to creat a meaningful sentence. It didn't make any sense to me. utter ignorance.

  38. I hope he gets hanged. He sent thousands of Sudanese men to get slaughtered in Yemen for Saudi money for himself and his cronies, nothing to do with the interest of Sudan.

  39. Wish they would stay there. They've been welcomed into Australia and repay us by bashing, robbing, home invading and various other antisocial behaviours against the citizens. Talk about it and you're racist. The fucken Jews need wiping off the planet. Flooding the West with human garbage.

  40. Sanctions plays it part for the western powers, the protesters don''t seem to understand this, and those that do, do not care, because they are more likely to turn up the heat, causing mayhem. and call the government a regime, Look at all the countries that had sanctions put on it. And even if the government does change, who is going to benefit? Egypt is a good example. better to work together than cause mayhem.

  41. Why Arabs are always arrogant like this please go back to middle East Sudan is not belonging to Arabs killing innocent civilians why???

  42. Omar will fall he has Black Nubian blood on his hands he will pay for all the Nubians that he has killed
