Students lead #SudanRevolts against austerity
Protests against unpopular government austerity measures spread in Sudan.
Sudan saw a weekend of protesters returning to the streets, this time to march against unpopular austerity measures. The protests were reportedly initiated on June 16 by female students at the University of Khartoum, in response to price increases for meals and transportation. A speech by President Omar Al Bashir discussed the measures, including reduction of fuel subsidies and cuts to regional governments, and did little to appease the demonstrations.
Ending fuel subsidies is particularly contentious due to fears of further fueling inflation, which is already at 30 per cent. Though previous demonstrations at the University of Khartoum have not gained momentum among the broader population, opposition politicians reportedly said they too will protest the planned end to fuel subsidies.
