Sudanese Sessions 4# حرية سلمية وعدالة Freedom, Peace and Justice... the protests continue. Wed, 2019-02-06 19:18

The protest continues in Sudan and, no matter what the future brings, it seems that Omar al-Bashir will never be able to return as the leader of his thirty-year-old regime. But how does this protest compare to Sudan’s previous protests in 2013 and how has music been used to spread the message of uprising?
Continuing on from the last podcast, Amy interviews Abdulraheem – an activist who has spent most of his life in Sudan. Together they discuss how the younger generation, social-media, the west, and of course music, have played a part mobilising movements. In-between discussion, they listen to protest songs – old and new, from Mohammad Wardi to Rap – that were kindly sent in by activists Suliman Baldo and Amira Osman.
