Thousands of protesters took to the streets in the cities of Khartoum, Wad Madani, Nyala, Dongola, and Atbara yesterday in response to the calls of the resistance committees to demand the overthrow of the coup regime and retribution for the martyrs in new Marches of the Millions.

The Marches of the Millions in Khartoum moved from the Bashdar gathering point in El Deyoum El Shargiya towards the Republican Palace and the participants carried banners.

The regular forces prevented the demonstrators from reaching El Gasr (Palace) Street, close to the Republican Palace, by heavily firing tear gas and using excessive violence. They also tried to run over some demonstrators with security vehicles.

The protesters closed several main roads using barricades and the protests continued until late and turned into a hit and run with the police.

The Socialist Doctors Association (SDA) reported 49 injuries amongst the protesters, including 29 injuries from teargas cannisters.
