Sudan: Tweeting #SudanJan30

Using the social networking site Facebook, Sudanese students called for a street demonstration on January 30 to protest against the government of Omar al-Bashir. The protests have claimed the life of Mohammed Abdulrahman, a student at the Ahaliya University. This is our latest roundup of #SudanJan30 tweets.

@MissTaha asks:

@simsimt Any protests today in Khartoum? #SudanJan30

@simsimt replies:

@MissTaha I'm not sure. There's supposed to be a more organized one in 3rd February.

@BreathingPsyAir asks world leaders to stay out of #SudanJan30:

#Sudan needs thick-skinned #Bashir but also stability – they do not need a walk-all-over, so World Leaders plz stay out of this #SudanJan30

@simsimt tweets:

By the death of one student in yesterday's protests matters will begin to escalate, and history might once again prove many to be wrong.

@BreathingPsyAir thinks Sudan should not be compared with Egypt or Tunisia:

Annoyed with #Sudan comparisons- reasons/motives are different from #Egypt + #Tunisia- Not remove #Bashir, Change System #SudanJan30 #Jan

@elzubeir asks:

Is it true that the organizer of the #SudanJan30 is daughter of a newspaper editor who was arrested before the protest began?

Usually opposition and editors get arrested. Today it's their sons & daughters #SudanJan30


A long phone call with a well-educated friend. He dropped the bomb that we are not ready yet for change because of our ‘lack of education’.
