Sudan Massacre: Hundreds Raped And Killed, Here’s How We Can Help
Sudan has been overrun with violence and tragedy ever since Omar al-Bashir was removed as the leader. Following his removal, protesters continued to fight the military-ruled government and ensure another one wasn’t put into place. Many of those military groups followed al-Bashir’s violent ruling.
The protesters were later attacked by the paramilitaries, who wished to keep the old regime in place. The Guardian reports that hospitals in the capital had “more than 70 cases of rape” during the attack in the city of Khartoum, with hundreds of deaths and injuries. Some of the dead had been thrown into the Nile without remorse.
Right now, we have to push to bring awareness to the situation so that the violence can be stopped. George Clooney and Rihanna have used their platforms to spread the news and urge people to get involved.
In a statement on Tuesday, UNICEF director Henrietta Fore said that they were “gravely concerned” on the impact of the unrest, “especially the reported use of excessive force against peaceful protestors.”
There are petitions and GoFundMe’s created to push organizations like the UN to investigate and put a stop to the massacres.
