Military Coup in Sudan

Postby Kowani » Mon Oct 25, 2021 12:12 am

The Guardian

Sudanese ministers and civilian members of the ruling sovereign council have been arrested by the military, the information ministry has said, amid reports of a coup unfolding in the capital Khartoum.

The claim on its official Facebook page on Monday came as Sudan’s main pro-democratic political group, the Sudanese Professionals’ Association, said at least five senior government officials had been detained, and called on people to take to the street to counter an apparent coup.

The group also reported internet and phone signal outages in the country. Its officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media. The arrests comes after weeks of rising tensions between Sudan’s civilian and military leaders. A failed coup attempt in September fractured the country along old lines, pitting more conservative Islamists who want a military government against those who toppled autocratic former ruler Omar al-Bashir in mass protests. In recent days, both camps have taken to the street in demonstrations.

The officials said the detained included the industry minister Ibrahim al-Sheikh, the information minister, Hamza Baloul, a member of the ruling Sovereign Council, Mohammed al-Fiky Suliman, and Faisal Mohammed Saleh, a media adviser to prime minister Abdalla Hamdok.

Ayman Khalid, governor of the state containing the capital, Khartoum, was also arrested, according to the official Facebook page of his office. The whereabouts of Hamdok were not immediately clear, amid media reports that security forces were stationed outside his home in Khartoum.
[...] NetBlocks, a group which tracks disruptions across the internet, said on Monday it had seen a “significant disruption” to fixed-line and mobile internet connections across Sudan with multiple providers.

“Metrics corroborate user reports network disruptions appearing consistent with an internet shutdown,” the advocacy group said. “The disruption is likely to limit the free flow of information online and news coverage of incidents on the ground.”


PM Abdalla Hamdok has been moved by the military to an unknown location after refusing to support the coup


ongoing situation, will update as more information becomes available

for those keeping track at home, the Kowani Koup Kounter marks this as the 8th attempted or successful coup this year

There were civilians calling for a coup (https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-africa-58944525)

Not sure how much of the population was doing so, however

DW News released this video just 2 days before the coup.

There are people on both sides, the pro-coup Islamist conservatives and anti-coup democratic movements. The loop just keeps going on.

Is America going to join this one?

After Afghanistan and Iraq, I think America needs a new democratization project. Or at least their leaders will unwisely think so.

Well, as a concept a coup is an immaterial thing, so yes, it's inedible to the same extent that other concepts such as "revolution" and "election" are inedible...

It tastes like chicken, unsurprisingly.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.
