Sudan has descended into crisis after the military dissolved the country’s power-sharing government and declared a state of emergency on Monday.
Large crowds came back to the streets of Khartoum, Sudan’s capital, on Tuesday to protest against a military coup. Pro-democracy groups have called for mass civil disobedience as many resist a return to authoritarian rule.
A coup is underway in #Sudan, where prime minister @SudanPMHamdok and several government members were arrested on 25 October. The military has declared a state of emergency. Researcher Roland Marchal, a Sudan specialist, explains.
What people are saying?
Murithi Mutiga Usually when there’s a coup, most people stay home. The fact thousands of Sudanese protesters have taken to the streets instead should signal to the generals that they’re taking a dangerous, reckless gamble as we highlight in latest @CrisisGroup statement.
TexMex Take a good look at authoritarianism and ask yourself “why would any American prefer this form of government?” Yet, some do. Haling false prophets and strong men is the kiss of death. The Sudanese people would die to defend ‘democracy’; yet we won’t.
