‘Victory or Egypt’: What can Sudan learn from its neighbour? | The Stream

20 Feb 2021

A path to democracy could now exist in Sudan after a power-sharing agreement was reached on Friday between the ruling Transitional Military Council and opposition leaders. The deal was welcomed as progress by both sides.

Some pro-democracy activists, though, remain sceptical of the military’s intentions, drawing comparisons to the 2011 Egyptian revolution in which the late Mohamed Morsi – that country’s first democratically-elected president – was overthrown in a coup.

Some Sudanese activists view the outcome of the Egyptian uprising as a cautionary tale, and many protesters in the streets of Khartoum chanted “Victory or Egypt” after the removal of longtime President Omar al-Bashir.

In this episode, The Stream talks to Sudanese and Egyptian activists to break down the similarities, and differences, between their respective revolutions. Join the conversation.
