Around 100 people took part in a demonstration to support the people of Sudan. They were protesting against the Sudanese struggle against what they argue is a fascist regime, which has been accused of violently oppressing peaceful protesters.Sounds a bit dangerous, then, doesn't it?
They gathered at the Old Steine Gardens in Brighton on Saturday calling for President Omar Al Bashir, who has ruled the country for 30 years, to step down.
They held placards displaying various messages.Ah.
Yeah. I'm sure that'll do the trick.
Nagwa Ballal, founder of the Sudanese Women and Children Group in Brighton and Hove, said: “This demonstration was about supporting the people who are rising up to the current Al Bashir regime.
“He has driven lots of people into poverty and also the standard of living has been very poor.
“Al Bashir has ruled the country for 30 years and people want the regime to end.
“We’ve had enough. He has killed many innocent protesters, who were only demonstrating peacefully.
“I have been in the UK for more than 20 years and I started up the Sudanese Women and Children Group in Sussex in 2004.”If there's anything less likely to bring about regime change, I've yet to see it!
