Sudan protest group calls nationwide 'civil disobedience'


A key protest group announced Saturday a nationwide "civil disobedience" campaign and said it would run until Sudan's ruling generals transfer power to a civilian government, AFP reported.

"The civil disobedience movement will begin Sunday and end only when a civilian government announces itself in power on state television," said the Sudanese Professionals Association which initiated protests that ousted longtime president Omar Al-Bashir in April.

The statement asserted that civilians are capable of founding state of institutions, in collaboration with the armed forces and police, stressing on the keenness on the peaceful transition of power in Sudan, so that Sudanese people can get back to normal life and take care of other issues.
