Girifna

Girifna

Girifna, Arabic for “we are fed up,” is a nonviolent resistance movement founded in 2010 by pro-democracy youth activists just before what was billed as Sudan’s first multiparty vote under dictator Omar al-Bashir. The group’s aim is to educate voters about their rights and perform independent election monitoring in an effort to foment free and fair elections. Thousands of Girifna members work together to monitor state crackdowns on protests and defend dissidents. The group is a target of constant harassment and threats from al-Bashir’s twenty-year tyranny, but continues to peacefully educate and encourage democracy and civil society in Sudan.
