Sudan: Voices of Protesters Should Be Heard, Not Sidelined

Sudan’s tenacious street protesters and other supporters of the social movement have continued to take to the streets and find ways to express their resistance to the country’s October 2021 military coup. They’ve faced the military’s organized repression, including the use of lethal force, and widespread unlawful detentions. For over seven months Sudanese have lived under a military-imposed state of emergency, which, in addition to the existing impunity for the security forces, was used to justify abuses.

Human Rights Watch is rolling out a series of videos, “Voices from Sudan,” in which five Sudanese engaging in the struggle for a fairer future describe their very different stories, hopes, and fears.
