This 1 February 2019 British Channel 4 TV video says about itself:
The women on the frontline of the protests in Sudan
Yousra Elbagir reports on the women on the frontline of the protests in Sudan, who describe their experience at the hands of government forces. You may find some of the images in her report distressing.
The dictatorship in Sudan is one of the favourite dictatorships of NATO countries’ governments. Because they helped NATO in the war on Libya. Because they help the European Union to stop refugees. Because they help the Donald Trump-Saudi crown prince–German war profiteers–British war profiteers–French war profiteers–Spanish war profiteers war on the people of Yemen, by sending Sudanese child soldiers.
That is why the governments of NATO countries like Belgium or the Netherlands deport refugees to Sudan to be tortured.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV, 9 February 2019:
In Sudan, nine women were sentenced to twenty lashes and one month in jail after being arrested at a demonstration. According to the judge, they were guilty of incitement.
The conviction comes a day after Sudanese President Bashir had released all women arrested earlier. He announced this on International Women’s Day …
According to them [demonstrator sources], the release was enforced by the female doctor Ghada Samir, who was beaten the day before yesterday at a demonstration and was also sentenced to lashes.
According to the demonstrators, the security services had found out that she had a US American passport, and then wanted to let her go. She is said to have refused that. She would then have threatened to go on hunger strike if not all women would be released. To that threat, Bashir was sensitive, the demonstrators say.
The president declared a state of emergency last month, after which the protests in his country continued to swell.
Yesterday hundreds of people also took to the streets in the cities of Khartoum and Omdurman.
According to a spokesperson for the demonstrators, who are part of a big trade union, more than 800 people have been tried in the emergency courts that Bashir has set up with the introduction of the state of emergency.
