Call to release detainees in Sudan rises as protests grow aggressive
Sudan– After detentions of several Sudanese protests, many others have come with force to stress on their release. On Monday, several protesters once again took to streets of the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. They have raised their voice against the Sudanese military who have led the country into a deep state of crisis making it further difficult for people to bounce back to a stable environment.
To counter the aggression of the protestors, security officials fired tear gas on them which also left many screaming in pain. One of the activists, Othman Ali said, “We are calling for the release of all detainees in jail cells.” One of the demonstrators also opposed the actions of the security officials by throwing canisters on them. Since the military takeover of the country and its administration, there have been a series of protests in the country as people demand civilian government back.
It was a crucial time for Sudan as the African nation was moving steadily towards a democratic transition but the sudden military transition pushed back the process and hit rock bottom. The country was witnessing a transformation since the ousting of autocratic President Omar al-Bashir.
Since then the country has been walking a very fragile path and the military takeover is further worsening the crisis. People are struggling to remove the military from power. The nation is waiting for stabilization since 2019 when al-Bashir and his Islamist government were thrown out of power.
