Protest leaders in Sudan are urging people to participate in acts of civil disobedience to put pressure on the military after the deadly disruption of their recent sit-in.
The Sudanese Professionals Association, which led the demonstrations that spurred the army to topple President Omar al-Bashir, said Saturday that its resistance effort would begin Sunday and continue until the military council ceded power to civilians.
The call came about a week after security forces moved to disperse the protest camp outside the military’s headquarters in Khartoum. At least 113 people have been allegedly killed since Monday, doctors close to the protesters said. The Sudanese health ministry however put the death toll at 61.
