February 9, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - The “27 November” movement has called on the residents of the Sudanese capital to take to streets on Tuesday to protest against the recent prices hike.

Since the release of the 2018 budget last month, peaceful protests erupted in a number of Sudanese states leading to the killing of a high school student in West Darfur State and detention of dozens of opposition activists across the country.

In a statement seen by Sudan Tribune on Friday, the 27 November movement called to organize simultaneous protests in the tri-capital including Khartoum, Omdurman and Khartoum North (Bahri) at 3:00 pm (local time) on Tuesday.

According to the statement, the peaceful demonstrations would be launched from major transportation stations in the three cities, saying the Khartoum protest would head towards the Presidential Palace.

The statement also pointed to alternate gathering areas if the police and security forces attacked the peaceful marches.

It called on the opposition forces, civil society organizations and trade unions to join the protest, vowing to continue the peaceful marches and support all forms of popular resistance.

The “27 November” movement is a youth group which launched a social media campaign on November 27, 2016 calling on the Sudanese people to engage in civil obedience to resist the government decision to lift fuel, electricity and drug price.

It is noteworthy that the government decision to lift fuel subsidies in September 2013 prompted deadly demonstrations in several Sudanese states leading to the killing of over 200 people.

    The 27th November movement is is not only protesting against the recent price hikes,while the 2018 protests were trigured by the increase in bread price,the protests are also about injustices,tribalism,corruption,wars,impunity (police and NiSS),and "a call for Albashir to go".
    The Sudanese people are fed up of "the government of hunger and corruption",they just don’t want Albashir any longer.
    I agree,and I add,we need a new,secular government,a government of the people, for the people ,by the people.

    Thanks.
