We are the resistance
Following an extended build-up, April 6, 2019 marked an acute change in the lives of many Sudanese individuals. A resilient uprising that profoundly shook the ambitions, sentiments, and prospects of the people.
A crude, collective act of resistance and revolution leads to a sit-in protest in Khartoum. As an active participant, I see it as a concentrated manifestation of a fragile, wounded nation. A diverse country experiencing a moment of flux; simultaneously in a state of breakthrough and skepticism.
Marching and chanting in anguish, I experience feelings I cannot necessarily describe or explain. Fear and doubt fade in and out. Yet, how can I (not) resist? Every time two processions fuse, I get the sensation that the revolution is boundless, and I see that we are the resistance.
Immersed yet mere, this series is a premeditative testimony of the Sudanese uprising. An invested gaze into the collective kernel of a revolutionary act, that happened to change my life.
