Attempt to destabilise the country

Despite these protests Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir remains defiant, pointing out his long history of winning elections following his intial coup to take power in 1989. Bashir maintains that these protests have been massively exaggerated by the international media and are another ‘Arab Spring style’ demonstration designed to destabilise the country from outside in a similar way to Libya and Syria. He has encouraged protesters to engage in the democratic process and not try to organise or change the government through violence or social media.
