Also, if you want some positivity in your life today, go to Twitter and search "Sudan uprising."
Especially if you need a reminder that black women are incredible.
The #SudanUprising Is Being Led By Women: Since December 19, Sudan has been ignited by over 300 popular protests taking place across the country. #SudanProtests (1) https://t.co/WczZXKWpN9 (2) https://t.co/5fdGLMA81B pic.twitter.com/cQ2QgjMOAU— Indigenous Anarchist Federation 🏴🚩 (@FaiMujer) April 10, 2019

Media saying women “join” protests has to stop. Women are leading these movements. “Zagrouda’ (or the women’s chant) has become the calling code for every protest in the street. When people hear these women’s voices, they know it’s the revolution call.” #Sudan_Uprising https://t.co/rr7F1Zi64U— Soraya Chemaly (@schemaly) April 11, 2019
And the latest news is that the uprising has been successful. President al-Bashir has stepped down as demanded, according to government sources.
Mainstream media in the U.S., of course, has ignored this. Possibly because our own rulers (the rich) don't want us to see how successful these kinds of mass protests can be.
Meanwhile, people here are calling for an Occupy D.C. movement. Can we get tens of thousands of people to camp out outside of the White House and demand the end of Trump's reign? It won't be easy, but it's incredibly necessary.
