Sudan Protests Go On Despite New Deal, Promises From Hamdok

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Khartoum and other cities across Sudan on November 30, 2021. The "Marches of the Millions" were called by resistance committees to express their rejection of the military coup d'état of October 25, 2021, and the subsequent political agreement, signed by coup leader Gen Abdelfattah El Burhan and Sudan's Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok.

In Khartoum, several demonstrators were injured as the marches turned into hit-and-run operations with police when the demonstrators closed a number of main roads using barricades, Radio Dabanga reports.

The demonstrators set out in the capital from the various assembly points identified by the resistance committees, and the processions converged on the Republican Palace, chanting slogans against the military and Hamdok. Witnesses told Radio Dabanga that a number of demonstrators were injured, or suffered breathing difficulties, from teargas and stun grenades used by police.
