The Beja Congress has joined other groups in marginalized areas like the Nuba Mountains and Darfur, in order to pressure the central government in Khartoum to provide greater peace and security in the country of Sudan.
The protesters would like to have repressive laws abolished. The signs they carry call for hospitals not to be sold. They want no more war in Darfur, and a stop to aerial bombardment. Violence against women needs to be stopped. Genocide in the Nuba mountains needs to be stopped.
The Beja Congress banner (at 3.39) reads "Beja Congress of Easter Sudan for Eternal Peace... Democracy... Equality... Development."
