#Khartoon – Gosh vs the Kandaka – Gosh, the regime’s head of intelligence whose armed men killed so many since the begging of the #sudanuprising in Dec, has been sending his armed man to shoot peaceful protests in the sit-in in hopes to break them, his men have also been shooting randomly in different areas around khartoum to scare families and force people to go back home. The Kandaka is a the Nubian title for Queen which protesters have been calling the women who are leading these protests since day 1. All basher’s men are considering this uprising as life or death situation since they know how much stole, Tortured, killed and raped since they came to power 30 years ago. Please pray for the protesters and their safety and a peaceful exit for Sudan. #تسقط_بس #كنداكات #اعتصام_القياده_العامه #السودان

Meet Sit Al-Meizan aptly named by @yousraelbagir , born from Lady Justice – a metaphorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems in Ancient Roman art. Her known attributes are: A blindfold, representing impartiality the ideal that justice should be applied without regard to power, wealth or status. A balance, which she usually holds in one hand to measure a case’s support and opposition. A sword, representing authority in ancient times which emphasises the idea that justice can be swift and final. We are living in trying times, where justice is needed now more than ever. The original photograph is by Marcel van der Vlugt. #sudanprotests #sudanrevolts #sudan #revolution #justice #IAmTheSudanRevolution
