Dispatches from Sudanese Revolution: Suddenly TV


Al Jazeera English: After the fall of President Omar al-Bashir, Ali and his friends camp out at the sit-in in Khartoum, joining hundreds of thousands demanding civilian rule and justice for the protesters who had been killed.

To pass the time, they repurpose a cardboard box and water bottles into a video camera. They go around the sprawling camp “interviewing” protesters.

Their act, which they dub “Suddenly TV”, allows them to meet people from all over Sudan – musicians, artists, tea ladies, and volunteer guards.

After one month, authorities break up the protest under a barrage of gunfire and Ali escapes to Cairo.

Reactions About Suddenly TV

The Average Guy Traveller: This is so crazy. I visited Sudan back in the beginning of 2020, it was really safe in most of the country and the streets were as calm as could be. They had just started recovering from recent hrs times then, now they have more.

Victoria: Perhaps Aljazeera could help this guy financially and give him an opportunity in Aljazeera’s Qatar (why always Europe when Qatar is there with peace and prosperity? His moral values are also the values of Qatar.)

blendwerk tv: Wonderful how this SUDDENDLY CHANNEL is doing a great job. Give these guys & girls cams & tech and let them do this. Amazing video. I guess I”suddendly” fell in love with the Sudanese people. Brave women & men. ” This is the way ” but autocratic regimes are not to tollerate anymore by the global humanity.

Sudanese Revolution

The Sudanese Revolution was a major shift of political power in Sudan that started with street protests throughout Sudan on 19 December 2018. And continued with sustained civil disobedience for about eight months.

In August and September 2019, the TMC formally transferred executive power to a mixed military–civilian collective head of state, the Sovereignty Council of Sudan, and to a civilian prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok and a mostly civilian cabinet.
