Sudan Protesters Mark Anniversary of Uprising That Ousted Omar al-Bashir

HeadlineDec 20, 2019

In Sudan, hundreds of thousands of people poured into the streets across the country to mark the first anniversary of the mass popular uprising that ousted longtime ruler Omar al-Bashir. The protesters demanded justice for those killed during the popular protests last year and vowed to continue the political revolution. This is Fatma Ali.

Fatma Ali: “Thank God, the revolution is moving toward the right direction. But there’s still more to be done in the state. We’re asking about all those responsible. Where are they? And why aren’t they being punished? Those who are corrupt, such as the former President Omar al-Bashir, he should not be treated like a president. Al-Bashir belongs on trial at The Hague.”
