UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The Sudanese protest movement on Wednesday denounced the scans of murals symbolizing its movement across Khartoum, calling on the military council to stop its removal campaign and its supporters to draw more.
The Alliance for Freedom and Change, which is leading the protests that toppled former Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, said that “the military council and the enemies of the revolution are scanning the murals that decorated the streets of the General Command and some streets of Khartoum.”
“We condemn this behavior and consider it a clear violation and a deliberate extension to obliterate one of the most important features of the revolution.”
In the past few days, these colorful paintings, which adorned the streets of the capital during the early stages of the protest movement that overthrew Bashir, were painted.
The drawings, together with music, have become a symbol of the popular nature of the protest movement led by young activists rather than opposition political parties.
Many of the paintings were painted on the walls of the army’s general command area in Khartoum, where young protesters held a sit-in for weeks before forcibly breaking up their rally on June 3.
Artists have also organized a campaign to paint the faces of victims of the protest movement in front of their homes in an effort to commemorate them.
“This is an absurd step and reflects the inability of the enemies of the revolution to recognize the revolution’s roots and awareness in every heart and heart,” the protest movement said.
