Members of the Sudanese Community in Malta organised a small protest to raise awareness of the Bashir regime in their country.

Throughout Sudanese cities such as Atbara and Khartoum, protests have been on-going throughout December as the Sudanese are angry at increased fuel and bread prices. This afternoon, the crowd in Valletta chanted in both Arabic and English, calling for justice for the numerous innocent people who have been killed throughout the past few weeks. Young children carried banners which read ‘Do not kill the innocent’ and ‘Protest till victory’.


Mohamed Ibrahim, the president of Sudanese Community in Malta said that peaceful protestors back in Sudan are being imprisoned or killed for challenging the Bashir regime. That people in Sudan, young and old, wish for peace and to end the 30 years of dictatorship and cruelty which the Bashir regime has done. He said that the president needs to be arrested for all the crimes against humanity he has done. ‘We are here as a community in Malta as we are truly grateful, and we are here today to stand up and show you what is happening back in our mother country, as our people are being killed for protesting.’

President Omar Hassan al-Bahir has been in power since a military coup in 1989, and during his 30 years of dictatorship has brought instability, corruption and economic mismanagement to the country. T
