Activists and political parties are expected to hold demonstrations across Khartoum as of Tuesday, October 22, in commemoration of the October 1964 Revolution, which toppled the country's first military regime. Participants are also calling for the dissolution of the National Congress Party, formerly led by President Omar al-Bashir, who was ousted in April, and also demand that Bashir-era officials be put on trial for alleged corruption. Participants plan to gather from 07:00 to 17:00 (local time).
Heightened security measures along with transportation disruptions are likely near all protest sites over the coming hours. Further protests are possible over the coming days and weeks.
Individuals in Khartoum are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized transportation disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
