Sudan: Severe security measures before massive demonstrations on June 30 

on Saturday, the State Security Committee decided to close the bridges without exceptions on June 29 and 30, with the closure covering crossings to the states in and out.

Recently, the Sudanese Professionals Caucus (one of the most prominent components of the popular movement) called for organizing millions of demonstrations on June 30, in the name of “correcting the path”, to complete the demands of the revolution that toppled Bashir.

On April 11, 2019, the army leadership removed al-Bashir from the presidency (1989 – 2019), due to the popular protests that started in late 2018, to denounce the deteriorating economic situation.

On August 21, 2019, a transition period of 39 months, ending in elections, began in Sudan, during which power is shared by the army and the Alliance for the Liberation of Change and Freedom, Change Leader, along with a transitional government.
