Comedian Hasan Minhaj Talks Sudan

Minhaj examines the ongoing protests and fight for democracy happening in Sudan

Posted by OBS Team on June 10th, 2019

On the latest episode of Patriot Act, Hasan examines the ongoing protests and fight for democracy happening in Sudan. Months after the country’s dictator Omar al-Bashir was ousted in a coup by the Sudanese military, a deadly power struggle has emerged between forces led by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo (Hemeti) and protesters calling for civilian rule, increased women’s rights, and an end to the brutal militias that have ravaged the African nation. Hasan contemplates what is next for the country in turmoil, and sits down with Sudanese national and protestor Marine Alneel to discuss the ongoing conflict and if democracy can survive in Sudan.

Fair warning, the above clip contians some language.

The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is accelerating their ability to generate lasting change by funding storytelling and movement-building, education and emergency response, and grassroots advocacy programs. Here are a few ways you can join us:

1. Give Monthly To The Education In Yida. The Renewal is our unstoppable family of monthly givers who never stop fighting for change. They give automatically each and every month to the two schools we sponsor in Yida Refugee Camp, providing consistent support to 24 teachers and nearly 1,100 students from the Nuba Mountains. Right now, the schools are short about $2,500 in monthly funding. LEARN MORE »
