Sudan uprising: Mass action by diverse groups countrywide
The demonstrations and sit-ins called for by the Sudanese Professionals Association and other signatories to the Declaration of Freedom and Change continued across the country on Tuesday.
Graduates of the University of Khartoum carried out a protest near the main downtown campus chanting slogans of the revolution, which the troops attacked with batons and fired tear gas to disperse the demonstrators.
El Mustagbal University graduates also carried out a protest vigil in front of the university’s headquarters where the protesters carried banners demanding the overthrow of the regime.
On Tuesday, the silent vigil organised by lawyers before the Supreme Court in the centre of Khartoum turned into a massive demonstration after the security forces confronted them with tear gas and batons.
Witnesses said that lawyers walked around the areas adjacent to the Supreme Court and chanted slogans calling for the overthrow of the regime and the punishment of the killers of the demonstrators.
The security forces prevented the lawyers from handing a protest petition to the Supreme Court on the violence and murder practiced by the security forces.
