(CNN)Sudan’s pro-democracy movement has called for “civil disobedience” throughout the country beginning Sunday, days after a bloody military crackdown killed more than 100 people in the capital Khartoum.
The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), a body that led protests against former leader Omar al-Bashir, said the civil disobedience campaign will only end when the ruling generals “transfer power to a civil transitional authority in accordance with the Declaration of Freedom and Change (DFC).”
It added, in a statement released Saturday, that the campaign meant not going to work and “general civil disobedience for a civil state.”
