The protests soon enough turned violence as security forces started using tear gas in an attempt to disperse the crowd. 

They took place in front of the presidential capital and were attended by tens of thousands of people.

The current government is formed out of the military and various civil groups however it is not an option to the majority of the Sudanese who want to see a democracy.

Among the chants that were heard at the protest was “Soldiers go back to the barracks.”

The capital was not the only place where protests took place as cities such as Kassala, Nyala and Atbara also expressed their discontent.
