Thousands protest power-sharing in Sudan (RT VIDEO) — RT World News

Security forces fired tear gas during a demonstration of thousands of demonstrators in the streets of Khartoum, the Sudanese capital, on Thursday to call off a power-sharing agreement between the North African country’s civilian prime minister and the military.

RT’s Murad Gazdiev saw people in Khartoum blocking one of the city’s main streets, setting tires on fire and shouting pro-democracy slogans.

Protesters were angered by the agreement reached between General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok on Sunday. It saw the PM, who had been under house arrest since a military coup last month, was reinstated on the job.

“We refuse this agreement … We want full civil society. We want full civil government.” One of the protesters said, summarizing the mood of the crowd.

While thousands of people attended the rally, the attendance was much less than what the organizers expected. According to Gazdiv, locals are starting to lose faith in the promise of political reform and a fair general election, which was made after the overthrow of Sudan’s longtime leader Omar al-Bashir in 2019.
