After the ousting of President Omal al-Bashir, Sudan has been engaged in a tug-of-war between civilians and the Transition Military Council (TMC) who took over power. Because civilians rejected the three-year power transfer deal presented by the TMC, ongoing protests have been organised by the Sudanese Professional Association (SPA) especially in the capital city of Khartoum. Last week, a massive tragedy plagued the world as 100 protesters were confirmed dead.
Reports claim that human bodies have been said to be literally floating in the River Nile, after bodies of the dead were dumped in it, hoping that they’ll be hidden.
Women are not spared as hospitals in Khartoum have also reported over 70 rape cases.
There’s a GoFundMe campaign called “Emergency Medical Aid for Sudan.” It’s been on for five months – way before the massacre – and has raised over $180,000 so far.
Social media users have populated United Nations pages as well as theirs to reinforce Sudan’s story.
A good reason to stand for the blue colour.
