Why can’t Egypt and Ethiopia agree on the Nile dam?
"Now. A reservoir behind a controversial dam built along the River Nile in Ethiopia has started to fill with water. If you open officials say, this is a natural part of the construction process, but neighboring sedan says it's noticed water levels on the blue. Nile have started to drop fast well. The damp has been a source of. Of huge disagreement among Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt the latest round of talks on ensuring all three nations will get enough. Water fell apart on Tuesday well to tell us more I'm joined once again by the Janice Ruth Michelson she's covered this story extensively. Welcome back to monocle twenty four ruth at good to have you on the globalist, and there are satellite images of this reservoir. Tell us what they show. So the satellite images that came out this week show water gathering behind the dam as he said exactly I suppose as it would do if the dam. Were functioning and. Has Said well festival it said during all of the negotiations that have happened that it would fill the damn irregardless of the the outcome of the negotiations and it's also said that some of the the the exact words that the Ethiopian water minister used were the construction of the dam and the filling of the water. Go Hand in hand, so there's some kind of technical process I. Am not an engineer so I'm about to probably explain this badly. But there is a technical process that involves filling part of the water attesting to if the turbines, which is what Ethiopia wanted to begin now and so, what's happened this week is that it's unclear whether that process has actually begun and Ethiopia, simply doesn't doesn't want to say clearly whether this is just natural, build up due to the rain, and of course the satellite pictures will show us the water, but they won't show us. Why and the Sudanese have said that they have noticed that in. In effect is a direct consequence of the filling up of the dam. In Ethiopia, they are seeing less water. Were they'll? Absolutely, so one of the things that we're told about the dam is that. In in the woods, peons regulate the flow of the blue, Nile, which flows from. Hills where rainwater gathers in Ethiopia through Sudan. And up into Egypt and it's true that the Blue Nile does flood and so you know there is some There's some justification there for wanting to to regulate that flow, but it same time one of the things that's going to constrain this entire discussion in the functioning of the dam. Future is drought because that is caused by climate, change and climate change has been exacerbating and lengthening these periods of drought, so there are still floods, but there's longer and more frequent droughts, and so you know I, I actually visited Sudan and I went to Stand on. On the banks of the Blue Nile and talk to some farmers in January and even in the middle of winter, the water levels were already quite depleted. Obviously, this was something. That's extremely alarming. to people who who subsist on the water supply. There so this idea that this this damn is going to to regulate a problem is really only half of the understanding of the functioning of the Blue Nile. And how much are the other countries involved in particular Ethiopia, because it is damn. How much are they mindful of this secondary impact that people in Sedona being a feeling? What Ethiopia has said is that the dam will produce. Excess hydropower once it's once it started and they will sell Sudan a cheap electricity or that they will sit on electricite. Excuse me. So some important context about this is that about seventy percent of the population of Ethiopia live without electricity, so Ethiopia has said that this dam is is essential to the development of their country that they need the electricity that will come from it to function in terms of how this will affect Sudan. There are. Former Sudanese negotiators that I've spoken to who were one in particular. Who quit the Sudanese? Delegation because as soon as negotiations started in two thousand and ten Ethiopia said no matter what we're going to build the dam. And so this particular negotiator said well. What's the point in having a negotiation? Then what are we negotiating over and when he looked at the text? Describing how much electricity Sudan was supposed to get, he said well I. Just don't think this is ever going to happen. I don't think there will be this excess hydropower that you claim. Tell us a little bit more about other countries involved Egypt is closely affected by this. It's to its livelihood dependent on the Nile. And they have started to, I mean they have been integral to all the pushbacks and all the talk, so the in for the entire time. How have they reacted to this filling of the damage? So Egypt has come to view the damn. Stench Threat and there is some justification there because it will deplete the flow. Of the Nile water and the according to Egypt anaylyst. percent of its total water supply and so. They're just you know. This is a country that is struggling to react to the idea that it would have less water for for one hundred million people and so you know part of Egypt's reaction so far. We've seen I wouldn't say it was a confused reaction, but it was a reaction with questions, so the only statement we've seen was the spokesman for Egypt's ministry foreign affairs, saying that he requests urgent official clarification from the Ethiopians about whether they've actually gone to fill the dam and saying that they're following developments on this issue, but at the same time you know they've They've talked about how cutting off Egypt's water supply is a red line There's been. A lot of efforts by Egypt to try and find some external. That will You know help help their case. They took the issue to the UN Security Council at the end of June and the UN Security Council basically told the three countries that they needed to resolve this dispute between themselves. But this is an issue where in the past Egyptian. People in the government back in two thousand and ten have even discussed bombing the damn. There isn't necessarily a suggestion that they're thinking of doing that now, but this is the kind. It's a problem of that level that has been discussed even using violence, which you some idea of just how important this is to the Egyptians
Real Madrid win La Liga for 34th time
"Madrid are champions. Champions of Lollygag for a thirty four time this after they defeat be a real two to one. We're joined by Julian Iran and GAB MARCATTI JEWELS I'll start with you Real Madrid at the beginning of the restart. We said it was very likely they would have to win every single game to overtake Barcelona. They've done it and they've done it so easily clinched the league match still to be played. You're right and winds of ten, and there were two points behind boss, not when restarted Lalita. What six weeks ago, something and then they were just unstoppable. They may maybe not always the most. Pleasant towards attacking wise, but so efficient in both boxes so solid defensively. This is the best remedy defense for for the last thirty years, and that was always the plan from Sudan. Is Priority to win our league this season. He promised it. He delivered it and he did it in a very different way than the other titles before that club this this one was built on being very strong, defensively, being very well organized playing as a team and then relying on Wednesday march the goal. Benzene has been fantastic all season. And the defense has been fantastic or season to Wayne Gordon Veyron and says almost at the bag, the two full as well they've been. They've been pretty special I think and on these eleven heightened for eleven title in two hundred nine again. That's one i. told every Nineteen Games. He's putting credible down I don't believe you're all Madrid. Have trailed since the restart. How impressed with their? Performance. have been very good and I think even when people will flag up certain games where they got the rub of the green with with severe and whatnot by I agree with Jules, you look beyond that this is almost another level of around Madrid. It's almost as if when you think about it. The GALACTICO era is well and truly over in the sense that. Korean bedroom is tastic as he was he. He's an Galactico type as much as he is. A warrior hard hat tight you go through the team beaten hazard for most of the season Gareth Bale once again missing in action, other Michigan's on the bench. except for Tony Crows MoD modern as well off the bench a lot of the time we saw a lot of rotation. We saw a lot of grit. We saw a lot of efficiency we saw. I think aside of of Sedan, who previously was seen as just kind of like a a man manager, a guy who didn't necessarily get to involve not screw things up and just let the players play. We saw a guy who is actually very actively coaching when the injured guys came back. You've worked in back in and I. Think in some ways this might be the most satisfying. Of the of the titles that that's it down as one. Jewel so much has been made in recent days. Officials VR helping out Real Madrid even with your Barcelona ways. Will you discredit that argument here? Think, they were the best team all season really since the loss against my. Tober, I they. They've been on another level really in terms of. The results of course the way they were playing. Pretty much everything they did was almost perfect, and even with the pandemic and break they can by flying. As we said with those ten Wayne's, there were so well prepared far better prepare than boss or not folks up. What both fitness wise and tactically as well and I think Don deserves it off great. See Dan priority because he still feels that it doesn't get the credit deserves and what he did before in the past, lally, gainfully seventeen of research I'm visiting in a row that people never praised him enough really sort of our, but you've got Chris overnight. All you've got wet players and you've got a team that was winning before own that kind of stuff and I. Think this one for him will always be very special because he did it. Maybe as we sit in a very different way, but also him as a as a man as manager was very different, and the personal that you especially without Christianity was very different, and I think he will you take? I think far more prides in in many ways to of one this one especially considering that remedy warning since two thousand seventeen. The would always have a very special taste for him this one.

Morey J. Kolber PT PhD CSCS- Covid-19 as a Physical Therapist
"So maury. I know that you've had a big change in your main job right now. Which is teaching physical therapy students at Nova southeastern and I'm curious before all this came down. How much teaching of physical therapy students Nova southeastern was done in the online environment versus what we think of as the typical face to face environment of education all our program at Nova Southeastern University in Fort. Lauderdale campus is traditional teaching. So it is a face to face program. An each faculty sort of had a different way of approaching their courses. Some faculty had a mix of online prerecorded lectures in class laboratory. Others were one hundred percent in class. I I think it was somewhat variable but prior to all of this era traditional program. We have lecture class as we have lab classes. We have testing so the landscape of what we do. Moving forward is already changed. And it's GonNa continue to change and I know we were talking a little bit before I started recording. And you said that you had some impetus essentially a month ago that there may be some changes or to be prepared for some changes. And what was your initial thoughts when you heard that? Potentially you might be teaching courses in physical therapy program entirely online. I mean my initial reaction was panic because everything I do everything I've had setup is face to face that's the part of my job that I enjoy the most I think for some people. They probably saw a great thing for me. It certainly wasn't but there were some initial panic. Probably the first thing I did is stopped. All clinical visits adapt might have for various reasons one being the the threat obviously of Kobe. But the other was knowing that I needed to begin dedicating some hard time into creating modules and a change in my course which is currently ongoing. And I know you've been teaching for a number of years although courses changes knowledge changes and you try new things. How much of an increase in workload did you see or how difficult was to take some of these classes that until a month ago you were seeing students two or three times a week and now suddenly you're like okay? This all has to be delivered online in a synchronous or a synchronous manner right. It seems that something that would take five minutes in the classroom setting. We'll take fifteen minutes on his accession. Astrom said I'm sorry and I'm curious with the students that you've communicated with so far health familiar with most Zoom in online education versus panicked similar. To what you had a couple of weeks ago I mean fortunately for us in what it seems. Our students are probably a little bit more savvy than than some of us in terms of online learning. When I went to Undergrad we didn't have online learning. I imagine most of them did to some degree. Fortunately for us our program director had began pushing us into into exam. Soft which is a means of testing getting rid of paper and it wasn't because of this. This was last semester. So fortunately we transitioned into that software program to deliver our tests so we ready to go with that. Had We had to learn that at the same time it would have been a challenge in with that and the switch to online education with the students. What is the reaction of the students that you've talked with been so far? They've been excited about it. Just happy that they continue it or kind of a little bit of panic. Because it's something new. I think there's a little bit of panic with regard to testing because now they're they're being tested in an environment that they have to create that his private secure. There's a camera watching them. So that's changed. The ability to review exams is obviously changed due to security. You don't want exposure questions whereas when you have a setting where student comes your office you hand them a written exam they take a look at it. There's no exposure of that exam so now there's different considerations that didn't exist before you know. I'm always reluctant to to approach students. Say Hey how did you like the lecture? I just did on zoom because I think when you do that you know your you know your responses are going to say why I really liked it. I don't know that it's appropriate. I'm not big on just walking up approaching the students say hey. How did you like what I just did? Because students are generally kind been. We'll we'll say they liked it but that doesn't necessarily mean they did. I feel like our students have an expectation to in classroom teaching and laboratory sessions Expectations GonNA possibly need to change. Perhaps through the whole summer and I know I've been teaching for a number years at California University of Pennsylvania. Not In a physical therapy program but in exercise science program in our classes are a synchronous in other words we do narrated lectures and things like that where the students have a time period where they have to complete it with Sudan. Switch that you've had with your teaching. Are you doing this in a synchronous manner or their specific classroom times where students that you saw month ago in the classroom you our meeting with them on Zoom? So plan is moving forward to have both a synchronous synchronous so the plan will be for the summer. We were just wrapping up our semester. So there wasn't a lot of content but it was mix tasing fairness and synchronous moving forward into the summer. The students will be given a certain amount of time to do a review of a lecture. That's a synchronous. And then when they complete that then there will be a zoom session. Which will be synchronous where it'll be more focusing on cases questions and reviewing the content that they did earlier we have a media platform called counter. And that's what we use for our courses to prerecord certain lectures and I think from an efficiency perspective for them and us that's going to be strategy provide these cal- Torah lectures for the heart lecturing. Because if you think about it these students are going to be sitting in a zoom session. Three hours in the morning three hours at the end of the day it is going to wear on providing a synchronous cultural lecture. That's prerecorded and following up with a review. Overview zoom is going to be the way to go and I'm also interested in learning As physical therapy program. I know the American Physical Therapy Association has certain requirements. That students must meet. How communicated have been with you and with your program as far as recognizing that okay. This is something that really hasn't been done before we haven't had a pandemic and almost one hundred years so this is a significant change. What is their communication been with? You will our director and share. Have sort of been on the front line in terms of communicating with captain which is our accreditation body and at first there was this fear in debt. Changing our curriculum is a substantial change. It's GONNA require an application forms paperwork but Kathy did come down with some some documents stating that. There would be some flexibility based on this situation and with both changing models of classroom teaching as well as clinical hours and I suspect the most important thing about that is that when students finish their work at Nova southeastern. They'll have the ability to sit for the certification

"More than a quarter of a billion people could suffer from acute by the end of twenty twenty because of the impact of the new corona virus. Pandemic that's according to the World Food Programme. Wfp and other UN agencies. Which on Tuesday warned that caveat nineteen could almost double the number of people who are already critically hungry now in fifty five countries according to the global report on food crises produced by WFP and fifteen other humanitarian and development partners. Seventy five million children were stunted and seventy million suffered from wasting in two thousand. Nineteen the forecast. It's spike in the number of people at particular risk of curve in nineteen relates to one hundred and eighty three million people who were found to be on the cusp of acute hunger last year faced with the new corona virus. They're unlikely to withstand the shock to their food insecurity. The report suggests regionally more than half of the one hundred thirty five million people covered by the report are in Africa. Forty three million live in the Middle East and Asia eighteen and a half million from Latin America and the Caribbean. The key reasons for food insecurity are conflict where the extremes and economic turbulence in order of severity the ten worst food crises last year Yemen the Democratic Republic of the Congo Afghanistan Venezuela Ethiopia South Sudan Syria Sudan northern and Haiti together they constituted eighty eight million acutely food insecure people and accounted for sixty five percent of all people in acute need

The New Nintendo Switch Update
"Let's start off with the intendo switch update ten point. Oh I think it jumped all the way from nine point two so there are probably a bunch of really tiny updates up until this point. But we've got you now re map your joy confidence you can move your data between your St Card and your switch hardware and there are some cool animal crossing icons as what are your favorite favorite parts about this. Update the favorite thing. My favorite update is that Nintendo's actively supporting people with disabilities. I think it's really you know being able to re map all the buttons joy con on the pro control. I think finally makes Games playable for people who couldn't play them before and as an especially games like animal crossing that aren't really action focused Can now be open to really big audience of people very very cool. Yeah I totally agree. There's obviously some limitations to it and that it doesn't work certain controllers but It's a giant step in the right direction for them. It's also interested to see what people do with it just generally speaking because I think there might be outside of quality of life stuff. I think there's also the ability to make games into single joy. Con Games like moving all the buttons to one side or the spire actually has that capability built into. It has a single controller boned. People were hoping people were hoping for smash Gamecube Controller. Customization didn't get that yet. can only official joy. Khan and the pro controller and of course the buttons already attached the tennis which light have the capability to remount the controller. And we'll you have the option to save five different configurations to switch to but then the the update for everyone of course is the the backup data management stuff which is long overdue. So it's great that we get in that. Yeah I'm Kinda bitter about that because I feel like I've done that process like three times now and it's so for me. It's it's kind of like I'm I'm really happy it's here because it's it's a game changer. For everybody but this is also this. This comes after everyone bought a switch for you. Know a maybe a second switch for animal crossing of got one over the holidays and stuff like that. I mean. There's never a wrong time to do this. I just wish it had been sooner. That said that process has been a big pain for me. Especially as like a Mac user. I know on. Pc It's a little bit easier But I'm an attitude. Yeah I know I will. Honestly I buy switchgear -pletely full right now. I just went to a game yesterday and I was like no. I keep having to archive and I think I need to get another microscopy. I think it's time for me to write. What would you guys would? What's your mic rusty cards? Currently I think I have a two hundred fifty gigabyte. Yeah I have a one. Twenty eight was like I'll never not fill this up or wait. Yeah I'll never fill this up. I'll never need another a microwave card. One hundred twenty eight gigabytes. This'll only today's generation. I know in hindsight it's idiotic but I haven't got a four hundred GIG and I fill it up constantly. I I have a five twelve this man. But here's the thing that that also I've I've transferred switches a couple of times because I- i- upgraded and bought the newer model and instead of doing the doing the physical moving of stuff. I just reload downloaded certain games. The Games that I actually needed on the machine. So that's why I'm not anywhere near running out of space to a pretty good job of of light putting stuff what did they what did Reggie like? Nah is cleaning the fridge. She called. I'm back in the back in the we. He was just like the storage solutions for that system. We're not six like somehow got to clean out the fridge and the aching thrown away put new baking soda.

So it feels more like you know your other jobs. A monster is what you're saying. Look sometimes switching back and forth between game switch and the game on the playstation is annoying because you end up the wrong button that you guys know where. I'm going to do that dark. Souls BECAUSE DARK. Souls is a port of Current and past ten games on the competitors consoles were those buttons are flipped and it constantly breaks my brain. I try to play it on switch so I'm absolutely going to do but it's so clear. Be Back as advanced. Exit Exits Sudan wise. Jump apart. I mean if you put it put it like that. I mean there's no

"And your mission as an organization. Fees strutted into southern. Anita's say when the piece was sign and everybody was into the aesthetic trying to participate in the development of the country. So around that time mm-hmm five enterpreneurs came up and putting their resources to start a solution understood very well by twenty thirteen. We already had four branches But unfortunately that's when the first conflict broke out and by two thousand sixteen we were forced to close three. Three branches were these. All in south Sudan Sudan all those south Sudan it was really very disappointing period because I think we lost not less than three hundred thousand. US dollars at that time boss because of inflation and because because most of our plans to call to to refuge and that's when we sat with the board and said what do we do. Do we close this to show we we keep it going. And the idea finally came in that lists follow up our clancy into Uganda and see whether we can provide them also financial services in such a setting so i. I traveled to Uganda and followed up a stressful. It was not that difficult difficult and by February seventeen. We are set up. Our branch of costume was a bit apprehensive. Because I mean if you talk to finance institutions nations providing financial services to refugees is north something that everybody wants to do. We fear that they could just leave that country and go to another one or because they do enough security to secure a loan so most likely they met before and it's nothing nothing much you can do but we had event to that the refugees we are dealing with some moved them way our clams and most of them. We understood where they're coming from so so the new US in south Sudan we knew them from south Sudan so sort of there was a link and there was understanding between us and Franklin Wrangler new stuttered way a bit apprehensive but just after six months realize that it was a market niche of that was really in and need of service and we have to mobilize resources for a fuss to make sure we meet this. This market niche so. Oh from ten to seventeen up to now we have been working with their effigies and right now actually a lot of financial institutions begin to realize that you can serve the refugee and they pay even as well as the local pass on so we still maintaining that and also contending our activities in in in south Sudan because all of us have hope that one day peace will come and definitely people will need financial services so right now we're maintaining operations in the main town providing the common businessmen have been talking about financial services especially especially loans in such an environment and then they're Davantage Lazlo walking into countries that there's always linkage because because they come from south Sudan and the AINU Ganda so it's very easy for us to even use a collateral that they have in South Sudan for them to secured loans in Uganda and they also families along the way who want to send money from south Sudan into Uganda to their relatives in the refugee settlements. I saw parentally even before again. What we have not planned for is something that will realize this happening? We are becoming a very good link for families and refugees and for other relatives who are back in the country in south Sudan essentially remittance service. Now Yeah exactly. We are especially from Juba to one of the settlements in a place called Perot arena. We have really been very very wherever much appreciated by their fees and even the business people because some business people want to buy certain woods from South Sudan which I know. They're in Uganda. So they can easily remit the money from our settlement and then withdraw it from from south Sudan. So they're really found it a very important service. I'm I'm curious to know. What gap existed? That allowed you to come up with. This idea was not a formal banking infrastructure. That was serving the people and if did was there. Why wasn't it serving the kind base you? Currently so in Uganda or in south Sudan in south Sudan so when you first launched in south Sudan and what was the state of banking infrastructure and at what extent was it making lending available to I suppose the business people when when we set it in two thousand eight there was busy Kelly the very fuel okay. We had some bonds and most of these thanks. We are way of foreign banks and of course they are just in the town of Juba. So you find out if you go to some of the outskirts or settings things. There was no financial service providers. And that's why we found out that it was necessary. Then due to financial EST may at the microfinance microfinance level that we also in south Sudan but also realize they're just within the town but the service that started with took them to the outskirts. We we started in a place called Kaji which was about to two hours drive from Juba and the people appreciated it because yes. It was something that they've never expected coming in. And of course we realize people needed it because everybody was the mystic about building the development all developing the country so some of them needed money to be able to do that and they found that our service of trying to provide loans at that time was was raided. The truth is most of them had never heard before so it also involve desk trying to do some financial literacy for them to understand ending and times about security and all that but ultimately it picked up and actually because of that effort we put in. That's why when we came to Uganda down the understood that we have really tried to help them and frankly we when we came in the some of them asked us why didn't do. Just what is it that drives you. YOU HAVE MITT losses in south Sudan and again following trying to come and provide services in in Uganda so people didn't understand but we have calling which is like a social calling because realized there was also in Uganda. That was under sowed so it was basically trying to be part of the team that is building the country that really drove these five inte- preneurs to start and grow the company. Moving into Uganda was sort of like desperate. Move because You've lost a lot of money but you said okay list also throw some money there and see what comes out but surprisingly as we talk now is being well in Uganda. That was going to be my next question. Inscription is clearly have you recovered from that loss. And the limits to altruism contend here to what extent is this is this a calculated for profit entity and to what extent are you perhaps willing to sustain further losses in the name of of the boarding your people. No I don't think we are not. We are not ready to sustain more losses losses. That's why we we actually right now as I talk. We decided to maintain operations in new gun in south Sudan at only two branches inches. We don't intend to expand or open those branches reclosed until we see that there is permanent peace and then the south Sudan is Spohn has really gained some value always a bit stable against the foreign currency. Well in Uganda of course is and then they. They don't see link Israeli stable against the local on foreign currency so this is a very big chance of expanding because even now in both countries we are sustainable bowl. Yes in Uganda Norwood being better now. We have four branches. We have three branches opening their force in February. So we have a high hope that I I built aspects much as again we are dealing with refugees and also some host communities is so much more high in Uganda at the moment then in south Sudan so his profitability in sight. Nice insight since I. How many people do you serve with right now? In Uganda we have who two thousand three hundred and fifty clans that we we are working with and the about seventy five percent of these refugees and then we have forced communities communities we not entirely targeting refugees but because we work mostly in the settlements the new final that a lot of our work is also going going towards serving serving refugees then in south Sudan. We have about one thousand eight hundred because most people move out of the country so as you said South Sudan Dan we are moving cautiously. We don't want to have our fingers bent for the second time saw really the strategy is to make sure the operations are continuing and then until final piece comes in. That's when we have ditch us now to expand and open the other branches that we're we're closed strategies also to make sure that when the refugees go back they can continue with the services that they have been getting from Uganda because when they come back they'll find NASA they and then we'll be able to continue to to provide them with services as an again them losing the services that have been getting and then taking go back to zero so we are trying to place that cross-border strategist to make sure that we provide the same services they go back.

So for those of you who didn't listen to our last episode on Sudan, we forgive you for this view, who didn't have just forgotten. We also forgive you. So, basically, in December twenty eighteen protests erupted in Sudan. Originally. They were over the price of food, but they pretty quickly turned into a protest about the country's really bad economy. And then they kind of spiraled into this protests about the leadership so about that leader. That guy's name is Omar al-bashir. He was in charge of Sudan from one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and the spoiler alert, he was not good, basically ran the country into the ground after he took it over in a military coup. You may remember the genocide of Dr four in the western part of the country, that was his brain child. Right. So there was a uprising in the western part of the country. He used a very brutal militia to quell that uprising and basically it's led to him being known as one of the world's most brutal leaders and even being referred to the international criminal court. So not the best guy, right? Yes. So he literally in the process of putting down that rebellion committed, or at least accused pretty credibly of having committed multiple counts of genocide work Ryan's in crimes against humanity. So brutal guy brutal dictator now these protests back when we covered it in January were new, and it seemed like a really big, and if new thing that was happening. We didn't know really wear. They we're gonna go whether they were going to be successful and they were really inspiring. So there's a great piece on box dot com about how there was a big contingent of women in the country who are leading the protest movement. There are all these like, amazing inspiring scenes of women and children and just all sorts of people into Dan from all walks of life coming out into the street like dancing, and singing, and it was a very positive movement. And, and Jen, I remember us talking about that in the newsroom and just thinking, like this is such a different sort of view. We have of these kinds of, of protests. These protests have been going on since December, and they've been holding onto the pressure and continuing the pressure on Bashir and the regime for quite some time and to the point that even like military members. Effectively told him to step down last April. So that's a coup, right? I mean. No, no. If ands or buts about it. It was a coup, even though he said he was never going to go. He's gone. And so, yeah. Victory, jen. Yeah..

The release was ordered by Sudan's intelligence and security chief for LA gauche. The information ministry said in the statement, but no reason was given for the release of more than one thousand people who had been detained arrested during the protest which began last month in December.
