SUDAN’S 48-HOUR NATIONAL STRIKE: FLIGHTS DISRUPTED, OFFICES SHUTDOWN

SUDAN’S 48-HOUR NATIONAL STRIKE: FLIGHTS DISRUPTED, OFFICES SHUTDOWN

A two-day general strike in Sudan started in the wee hours of Tuesday morning with public services largely grounded across the country, multiple reports have shown.

The latest move is a resort being used by the protest leaders to push for a civilian-led transition. The country is in a state of flux since April 11 when the military ousted long-serving Omar Al-Bashir.

A significant effect of the action is the paralyzing of airports with staff having joined the strike call. Travelers have been left stranded in the wake of the compliance.

Hours to the start of the action, several government-run institutions expressed their support with activists posting photos and statements to that effect on social media platforms.
