Leonard Leo, chairperson of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom and executive vice president of the Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy Studies spoke of what he witnessed on a recent trip. Among the incidents he saw was the Sudanese government’s prevention of a peaceful rally.
“Our commission delegation witnessed Sudanese security forces, police, national security and army being driven into Khartoum in unmarked vehicles to suppress the demonstration,” said Leo. “We saw streets blocked to prevent ordinary citizens from assembling peacefully.”
Fowler, the last speaker, urged rally goers to raise their voices to put pressure on the U.S. government.
