Protesters hit Sudan streets to demand reforms, justice
Khartoum: Tens of thousands of Sudanese protesters took to the streets Tuesday calling for reforms and demanding justice for those killed in anti-government demonstrations that ousted president Omar al-Bashir last year.
The protests in several cities and the capital Khartoum went ahead with security forces deployed in force and despite a tight curfew since April designed to curb the spread of coronavirus.
"Our demands are peace… and justice. We call for economic reform and appointment of civilian governors to states," said a protester in Burri, east of Khartoum.
"This march is to put the revolution back on course, not to overthrow the government."
Many chanted the catchphrase of anti-Bashir protests: "Freedom, peace and justice." – AFP
