Hundreds of Thousands Protest in Sudan Calling for Civilian Rule

HeadlineMay 03, 2019

In Sudan, hundreds of thousands of protesters took part in another mass sit-in Thursday outside Sudan’s Defense Ministry. The protesters are calling for civilian rule, following last month’s military coup that ousted longtime leader Omar al-Bashir.

Safaa Ibrahim: “It took us four years of protesting to reach this point. We persevered through security forces and bullets and everything. Ramadan would never let us give this up. We will persevere through Ramadan under any pressures, under any challenges. We will persevere until all demands are met.”
