Sudanese authorities block Khartoum bridges
In anticipation of new demonstrations toward the Republican Palace, the Sudanese authorities have closed off numerous bridges in the capital.
The Sudanese officials have blocked off numerous bridges in the capital of Khartoum, in anticipation of expected protests today.
New demonstrations are scheduled in the Sudanese capital, in rejection of the agreement signed between the President of the Transitional Council Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok.
A number of arrests took place targeting activists in the resistance committee and the Sudanese Professionals Association and the Forces for Freedom and Change announced they support today's demonstrations.
On November 21, Sudan's Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok signed a political agreement with Sudan's army chief General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan stipulating that Hamdok would be reinstated to his earlier position and all political prisoners imprisoned since the October coup would be released.
Sudan state TV added that the political agreement also states that they would work on creating a unified army and that the Sovereignty Council would oversee this transitional period and the Juba Agreement for Peace would be implemented.
Sudan's FFC rejects the agreement
Sudan's Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC), the main civil movement that led the anti-Bashir protests and signed a power-sharing agreement in 2019 with the Army, rejected the agreement, commenting that the coup is not legitimate and that they will not be part of it.
The group also called on putting the leaders of the coup on trial for undermining the legitimacy of the transitional period by suppressing protesters and killing them.
Sudan has seen numerous demonstrations since September. The protests recorded numerous casualties and injuries, amid communication networks and internet services cutoffs by the Sudanese authorities.
Days ago, Reuters reported that Hamdok informed a group of nationalist figures that he intends to submit his resignation.
