Sudan – Khartoum



On Tuesday, November 30, Sudanese security forces used tear gas against tens of thousands of people in central Khartoum. The people were demonstrating against the military regime that staged a coup on October 25.

The coup shattered civilian political groups, which were sealed during the 2019 overthrow of Omar al-Bashir. Western countries then suspended economic aid.

Protests between October 25 and November 22 left 43 people dead and hundreds injured (source: a doctors’ union). The ruling junta reinstated Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and released imprisoned political prisoners.

On Tuesday, Sudanese security forces fired tear gas canisters at thousands of protesters who are again demanding a transfer of power to civilians only, but currently dominated by the military.

According to witnesses, police armed with “whips” chased the demonstrators around the presidential palace. Other demonstrations took place in the towns of Atbara, Kassala, Nyala and Port Sudan.
