Travel Alert: Sudan [February 18, 2022]

Travel Alert

Anti-coup activists plan to protest in Khartoum on February 21st. Gatherings are likely along major thoroughfares and near government buildings, including the Presidential Palace. The purpose of the action is to demand a return to civilian rule. Protests are also possible in Omdurman, Port Sudan, and other urban centers nationwide.

Authorities will almost certainly deploy a heightened security presence along key thoroughfares and near government buildings during protests. Security forces will likely close bridges in the Khartoum area to prevent protesters from gathering; activists could also block roads. Clashes between protesters and security forces will probably accompany the demonstration in Khartoum and related protests; security forces will likely attempt to forcibly disperse anti-coup activists.
