Mohamed Nagi Alassam

Sudanese doctor and pro-democracy activist

Mohamed Nagi Alassam helped lead the longest doctors’ strike in history during the Sudanese revolution, which continued until the fall of Omar Al-Bashir. He then became the spokesperson and member of the executive committee of the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), which played a pivotal role in mobilizing and organizing the public in Sudan for a peaceful revolution. He was arrested on Jan. 4, 2019, after becoming the first member of the SPA to come out publicly. He was released after 98 days in prison. After his release, he represented the SPA in the civilian-military, internationally mediated negotiation process leading to the transitional constitutional document, paving the way for a power sharing agreement. In 2021, Alassam co-founded Beam reports, an independent media platform.
