Sudan Protesters Rally 40 Days After Sit-In Dispersal
Thousands of Sudanese crowded the streets of the capital of Khartoum and other cities Saturday, July 13, to mark the 40th day since the deadly dispersal of a protest sit-in as the country’s ruling generals and pro-democracy movement postponed a planned meeting until Sunday in order to sign a power-sharing deal.
The “Justice First” marches were called by the Sudanese Professionals’ Association, which has been spearheading the protests since December, 2018.
Those demonstrations led to the military ouster of autocratic president Omar al-Bashir in April. (AP)
