This November 2016 video is called Strike in Sudan in protest against rising costs
Sudanese port workers demonstrate to defend jobs
Radio Dabanga reported that workers at Sudanese seaports demonstrated at Port Sudan’s state government administrative centre to protest job cuts. The protesters included 150 of the 600 port workers who had been dismissed by the state-owned Seaport Corporation.
Port workers demanded the rescinding of the sackings, stating they were concerned about the impact of the January dismissals on their fellow workers and their families. The company, responsible for maintaining the country’s three ports around Sudan, said they had dismissed only casual workers, claiming it is the way they adjust their operations in response to demand.
Sudanese medical interns strike over unpaid financial incentives
Medical interns came out on strike in West Darfur’s capital, El Geneina, on February 15. The recently graduated interns are demanding the payment of financial incentives, the form of payment they receive for work carried out in Sudan’s hospitals.
Some 34 trainee doctors have had their incentives stopped by the Ministry of Finance (MoF) claiming there is no evidence of their graduation from university.
The interns came out on strike after MoF reneged on a promise to resolve the problem.
These strikers are courageous, as there is dictatorship in Sudan.
