Hundreds of people demonstrated in the city of al-Ubayyid, today, Monday, heeding calls made by revolutionary forces and resistance committees that coincided with the anniversary of the start of the December revolution.
The protesters in the capital of North Kordofan state denounced the military coup that took place on the 25th of last October.
Resistance committees and high school students participated in the peaceful demonstrations, and demanded the return of the civilian government and the return of the army to its barracks.
On Sunday evening, resistance committees across Sudan carried out night processions inside neighborhoods in the capital, Khartoum, in preparation a “millions march” on Monday, December 13, while revolutionary entities called for a one-day sit-in.
Since army commander Abdel-Fattah al-Burhan carried out his military coup on October 25th, Sudanese people have been leading protests in various cities rejecting the coup measures.
Al-Burhan’s coup violated the constitutional document signed between the Transitional Military Council and the Forces of Freedom and Change in 2019, which governs the transitional period.
The army chief took unilateral measures, appointing a new sovereign council, in which he retained the post of president.
Al-Burhan concluded an agreement with former Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok, according to which the latter returned to his position, in exchange for the release of the leaders of the Forces of Freedom and Change Alliance, and all political detainees.
