Sudanese protest against al-Bashir

Trafalgar Square, London. 27th January 2019



 Sudanese protested in the rain on the north terrace of Trafalgar Square

 It was raining pretty steadily, and many of my pictures were spoilt by raindrops falling on the lenses as I took them.

 Protests have been going on in cities across Sudan since the 19th December, calling for the president to go

 and to be tried by the International Criminal Court for his war crimes. The ICC made two long lists of charges

 back in 2009 and 2010, but have been unable to bring him to justice.

 Protests in Sudan have been brutally repressed, with over 50 deaths and many injuries. Many have been

 harassed, arrested and tortured, and in Omduran a week before this protest a military vehicle was driven

 into a crowd of protesters.

 

 

 

 People call for Liberty, Peace and Equality

 and call the Sudanese government a terrorist government
