Vous n'en avez probablement pas entendu parler dans les mรฉdias, alors permettez-moi de vous raconter ce qui est en train de se passer en ce moment au #Soudan :
Vous vous rappelez comment des jeunes femmes et de jeunes hommes ont forcรฉ le dictateur Al-Bashir ร  quitter le pouvoir il y a prรจs de deux mois avec un sit-in massif ?

Le sit-in n'a jamais vraiment pris fin.
Elle dure depuis 52 jours et se poursuivra jusqu'ร  ce qu'une transition complรจte vers un gouvernement civil soit achevรฉe.

I've been seeing this pic on my #Sudan_Uprising TLs today and it's amazing. Let me tell you why.
She's wearing a white tobe (outer garment) and gold moon earrings. The white tobe is worn by working women in offices and can be linked w/cotton (a major export of Sudan), so it represents women working as professionals in cities or in the agricultural sector in rural areas.
Her earrings are the gold moons of traditional bridal jewelry (Sudanese, like many Arabic speakers, often use moon-based metaphors to describe feminine beauty)

Over the last week, protests have erupted across #Sudan, with NISS intelligence service stations being burnt and reports of the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) defending protestors in some locations. This is a developing thread for remotely monitoring the situation, h/t @trevorsnapp.
In Atbara, for example, protesters have set fire to the headquarters of ruling the National Congress Party, led by President Omar al-Bashir. There's plenty of visual evidence of the unrest, such as this video. Geolocation: 17.694190, 34.001319 (google.com/maps/place/17%โ€ฆ).
The NCP headquarters suffered heavy damage from the protests on 19 Dec 2018, as this photo shows (h/t @wasilalitaha). Second image shows the building in a better state, via their Facebook page.
