Analyses of the protests in Khartoum are focusing on analogies with Egypt. This article focuses on Bouazizi’s story as a comparison to the other individual deaths in Tunisia and Egypt that helped to focus the protest movements there (it also helpfully summarises various Arabic newspaper editors’ lines on the protests); in contrast, there’s another vein of articles that reject the comparison with Egypt, or focus on NCP justifications of why Sudan is different. The continued detention of some of the protesters is picked up on by Amnesty, Human Rights Watch and some newspapers. Putting aside Khalid Mubarak, whose SSRC article is a true classic of the Sudan Embassy information office genre, Magdi has written the only comment I think makes some headway into talking about why the Khartoum protests don’t have wider visible support. An English-language page for Sudanese Youth for Change (SPARK) has been set up on Facebook here.
