Professor Khalid Mustafa Medani joins the show to explain the protests going on right now in Sudan to try to bring about democratic rule in a country plagued for years by dictatorships and civil wars. In response to widespread civilian discontent, the military recently joined the cause of the people to overthrow the previous dictator—but then instead of handing the government over to democratic rule, the military set up its own dictator to take the place of the old one. Now the citizens of Sudan are calling for him to step down and help establish true democracy in the Western tradition.
Khalid Mustafa Medani is Chair of African Studies at McGill University. He writes regularly about African and Middle Eastern politics.
