Professionals Gathering calls for continued sit-ins, political strike

On Saturday, the Sudanese Professionals Gathering urged protesters in Khartoum to stick to sit-ins and carry out a clean-up campaign.

"The rebels inside and outside the sit-in, in the capital and the regions, are raising awareness and propaganda of civil disobedience and the political strike among citizens," the Sudanese Professionals Gathering called for a propaganda day in a statement published on its official social networking sites, calling for civil disobedience and political strike.

This comes at a time when the Sudanese arena is witnessing a cessation of negotiations between the Transitional Military Council and the Forces of Freedom and Change after the arena of the sit-in witnessed a tension.

In a statement on the state television on Thursday morning, Abdul Fattah al-Burhan, the Head of Sudan's Transitional Military Council, announced the suspension of negotiations with protest leaders for 72 hours, while the Forces of Freedom and Change considered the cessation of negotiations regrettable.

It is worth mentioning that the international community on Friday urged an "immediate resumption of talks" in Sudan between the Military Council and the leaders of the demonstrators, with the aim of achieving a "civilian-led" political transition, according to what a US official said at the end of a meeting in Washington.
