Sudan: Police fire tear gas as hundreds protest against al-Bashir

Protesters calling for ‘freedom, peace, justice’ march through Khartoum as police respond with volleys of tear gas.

Sudan: Police fire tear gas as hundreds protest against al-Bashir

Sudanese security forces have fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of protesters in the capital Khartoum and its twin city Omdurman as organisers urge nationwide demonstrations over the next week calling for the resignation of President Omar al-Bashir.

Crowds chanting “Freedom, Peace, Justice” demonstrated on Friday in two areas of Khartoum and in Omdurman just across the Nile, witnesses said.

They were quickly confronted by volleys of tear gas from riot police.

The demonstrations, which first erupted on December 19 over a government decision to triple the price of bread, have swiftly escalated into broader protests that are widely seen as the biggest threat to al-Bashir’s three-decade rule.

Friday’s protests came after organisers called for nationwide demonstrations over the next week demanding that al-Bashir resign.

“We will launch a week of uprising with demonstrations in every Sudanese town and village,” the Sudanese Professionals’ Association said.

At least 22 people have been killed since the protests began, according to the authorities.

Human Rights Watch, however, said on Monday that at least 40 people had been killed, including children and medical staff.

“People are saying that they’re fed up with his 29-year rule and that his promises to try to reform the economy, to try to improve the living situation for people is something that they’ve heard over and over again and only him stepping down would be the solution.”

Economic crisis

Although the immediate trigger for the protests was the increase in the price of bread, Sudan has been facing a mounting economic crisis over the past year, partially caused by an acute shortage of foreign currency.

Repeated shortages of food and fuel have been reported in several cities, including the capital Khartoum, while the cost of food and medicine has more than doubled.
