Hundreds of Sudanese people travelled through Berlin's western city centre to the Sudan Embassy to express their solidarity with the protests that have been going on for days in Sudan. They demanded an end to the regime of dictator Umar al-Bashir and the transfer of the president to the International Court of Justice. A portrait of the dictator was also burned.
Among the protesters was Taina Gärtner, BVV representative for Bündnis90/Die Grünen and this year's winner of the taz Panter Prize.
The background is nationwide protests in Sudan, which were ignited by the precarious situation of the population and recently by a price increase for bread. The regime is taking violent action against the protests. For many years the regime has been accused of massive violations of human rights.
