Sudan Restores Internet Service for First Time Since Coup; Civilian Leaders Reject Talks with Junta

HeadlineNov 11, 2021

In Sudan, a court has ordered internet providers to restore service that has been down since the October 25 military coup. This comes as Sudan’s main political coalition has rejected negotiations with the military coup leaders. This is a spokesperson for the group Forces of Freedom and Change, which formed in 2019 during the popular uprising that led to the ouster of longtime President Omar al-Bashir. 

Alwathiq Elbereir: “Internet services are being cut in order to hide the immense amount of legal and humanitarian violations taking place. … We stress that we will not meet the military. Our position is unequivocally clear: There will be no negotiations and no compromise with the undertakers of the coup.”
