Sudanese Revolution Coverage
After government forces committed a massacre to break up the two-month long sit-in at Sudanese Military Headquarters in Khartoum, the tense and controversial negotiations process between the Forces of Freedom and Change (a coalition of opposition movements representing the revolutionaries) and the Transitional Military Council (a government established after the overthrow of Omar al-Bashir through military coup on April 11th) came to an end. With at least 100 dead and hundreds injured, devastated revolutionaries have escalated their civil disobedience, and the Sudanese Professionals Association and the Forces of Freedom and Change have called for the downfall of the TMC.
