Sudanese demonstrate against UN ‘foreign interference’



The United Nations is currently mediating between civilian leaders and military leaders who came to power following a coup on October 25, 2021.

Thousands of protesters in Sudan have flooded the streets of the African country’s capital, Khartoum, opposing the UN’s mediation between civilian and military leaders. Protesters condemned the UN for “foreign interference”.
The demonstration took place in front of the headquarters of the UN mission in Sudan.
The crowd reportedly held banners saying “No to foreign interference” and “No to the UN”.

In addition, protesters reportedly burned pictures of UN envoy Volker Perthes, urging him to leave the country.

“We are protesting for our dignity and sovereignty. Volker has defiled our country,” protester Hafez Joubouri was quoted as saying.

The 2021 coup ended a transition to civilian rule, which began in 2019 with the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir, who had ruled the country for 30 years.

Since the coup, Sudan has been rocked by waves of protests.
