In various parts of the country rallies are prepared to be held in Sudan on Saturday to commemorate the victims of the violent dispersal of the sit-in in Khartoum on June 3, where more than 100 protesters were killed.

In Khartoum, medical students of the University of Science and Technology organised a vigil. They carried photos of protestors killed and held banners demanding an independent and transparent investigation into the killing of demonstrators at the Khartoum sit-in on June 3, and the handover of power to a civilian-led government.

The Imtidad Shambat neighbourhood committee in Khartoum North held a vigil on Thursday to announce a commemoration march on Saturday, 40 days after the massacre at the sit-in.

Wad Madani

In Wad Madani, the El Razi Centre of the University of El Gezira organised a sit-in, demanding justice for the protesters killed, implementation of the demands of the uprising, and the handover of power to civilians.

An activist from Wad Madani told Radio Dabanga that secondary school students marched through the city, calling for an international investigation into the attack at the Khartoum sit-in on June 3 and other crimes and abuses. Activists distributed pamphlets to promote the July 13 marches.
