Sudan | Demonstrations expected to take place across the country on October 21

On October 21, demonstrations are expected to take place in Khartoum and other states across the country. The exact times and locations of the demonstrations are not available. Demonstrations may result in road closures and have the potential to escalate. On October 18, police used tear gas to disperse protesters in Khartoum. The incident took place near the Presidential Palace as police prevented protesters from reaching the cabinet headquarters.


Protests are also impacting the supply chain of essential goods. Earlier in October,  the Sudanese cabinet announced that the essential medicine, fuel, and wheat supplies in the country are about to run out due to the forced closure of Port Sudan and highways by protesters. The Red Sea ports and roads have been blocked in recent weeks by members of eastern Sudan’s Beja tribes.
