Happening Now in Sudan

Omar al-Bashir assumed power in 1989 after he led a military coup to overthrow the sitting government of Sudan. He was President of Sudan (self-appointed) from 1993 to 2019.

He has been indicted by the International Criminal Court on five counts of crimes against humanity (murder, extermination, forcible transfer, torture, and rape), two counts of war crimes, and three counts of genocide. He is an international war criminal who continues to bomb his own people in an active attempt to eliminate all non-Arab populations from Sudan.

In 2009, al-Bashir banned all humanitarian aid coming into Sudan, leaving his people starving, sick, dying, and subject to intensifying violence.

Find out what is happening in Sudan today, and what human rights organizations and others did to do to stop the genocide, and the progress made by the international community in bringing al-Bashir to justice.
