On Sept. 23, thousands of Sudanese protesters took to the streets of the capital Khartoum. The country’s autocratic leaders lifted fuel subsidies to raise revenue, leaving outraged citizens to deal with sky rocketing fuel prices. In response to the violent riots, the government imposed a 24-hour Internet blackout to strip citizens of social media communication and block the media coverage.
Items belonging to Occupy COMO protesters were removed from city hall on Tuesday. City workers and police came at about 11 am to remove a tent, sleeping bags and other personal belongings that were stored in front of the building.
