While declaring their readiness to confront the military, the revolutionary forces which mobilized for the protests also made it clear that they no longer trust the centrist and right-wing civilian political parties sharing power with the military to mediate this confrontation.
Thousands of Sudanese people marched on December 4, demanding justice for the families of over 120 people who were massacred by militia forces in Khartoum on June 3
Four were killed and several were injured when Sudanese security forces shot at protesters in the city of Al-Abyad
Protesters are concerned that justice for those who were attacked during the protests is impossible unless the military lays down power
In a statement, the Sudanese Communist Party has asked the protesters to stay on the streets to ensure that the military sticks to its side of the July 5 agreement on a new transitional government
The civilian protesters, represented by the Declaration of Freedom and Change Forces, and the Transitional Military Council have reached an agreement on the composition of the presidential council, which was the main point of contention for months
