What Is Happening in Sudan?

The conflict began in December 2018, as protestors called for the removal of Sudan’s long-term president, Omar al-Bashir, from power.

The demand for change came after the government increased the price of everyday items in Sudan, such as bread and fuel.

The protests reached a critical point in April 2019, when Omar al-Bashir was overthrown and a Transitional Military Council (TMC) took over.

The protestors, largely led by every day citizens of Sudan, are now demanding power be transferred to a full civilian government.

The people wish for politicians in power to be chosen by the public in democratic votes.

Negotiations with the TMC collapsed on June 3, after the military used brutal violence against the peaceful protestors.

The TMC reported that 46 protestors were killed in the attacks, but protestors are saying as many as 100 are dead.

Authorities have since enforced emergency laws, a mandatory night-time curfew and the suspension of schools and universities across the country.
