The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) is excited to present a new video series, The Struggle for Freedom, Explained. Each video will explore a story of courage and resilience, breaking down complex global issues related to authoritarian regimes and providing audiences with a better understanding of the world around them.
In April, Sudan, a country in North Africa, took over the world news with reports of a clash between the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) and Rapid Support Forces (RSF). In the past seven months, the violence has developed into a civil war, resulting in the deaths, injuries, and displacement of thousands of civilians. What are the SAF and RSF? Why did this conflict break out? HRF’s newest video is here to explain.
In the episode, writer, artist, and Oslo Freedom Forum speaker Amir Ahmad Nasr breaks down the Sudanese revolution and the country’s struggle for a democratic civilian government. Despite the three-decade rule of military dictator Omar al-Bashir and the current power struggle between the SAF and RSF, the Sudanese people’s resilience and unwavering commitment to justice, freedom, and peace has persisted.
