I went to Sudan to cover the Sudanese Uprising for ARTE.

The Sudanese people initially took to the streets over the price of bread, but their protest rapidly morphed into calls for wholesale regime change.

Eventually, Sudan’s strongman of 30 years Omar Al-Bashir stepped down, leaving a military council in his place. But that wasn’t enough for protesters, who vowed not to stop until they had civilian rule. And then came the bloodshed.

Protesters are demanding civilian rule but also want justice for those killed under Omar al-Bashir’s 30-year regime, a period marked by years of atrocities that led to al-Bashir’s arrest warrant from the International Criminal Court.
