Hopefully more Sudanese people find the courage to stand in unison with their fellow people to oust this genocidal megalomaniac. Getting rid of this Islamist, Saudi stooge would do so much good for the region.

I know this isn’t the larger thread, I couldn’t find it.

Security forces fired tear gas at stone-throwing demonstrators and tried to disperse the crowd, which had responded to a call by activists trying to increase pressure on Bashir to step down.

They waved Sudanese flags and chanted slogans demanding “freedom, peace and justice” as they gathered outside the gates of the compound, that also houses the defense ministry, army command and security headquarters, and where army soldiers stood guard.

The demonstrators said they wanted to deliver a message to the country’s armed forces to side with them in trying to push Bashir out of power.

Just keep the momentum going and advance with every step, my Sudanese brethren. Soon we all will be free!

It’s happening!

They said that riot police and secret service personnel charged the demonstrators with pickup trucks while firing tear gas, trying to disperse a crowd estimated at around 3,000 men and women.

But witnesses and activists said that soldiers guarding the compound had come out to protect the demonstrators, firing warning shots in the air.

The security forces retreated without firing back and soldiers deployed around the area, while demonstrators chanted “The army is protecting us” and “One people, one army”, witnesses said. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
Let the wave leave no stone untouched, no person left unsatisfied, and no dictator left sleeping easy.

Also if the mods can move this to the larger thread if possible, that be grand.
