In early July, Rudwan Dawod — Project Director for Sudan Sunrise and a U.S. resident — was arrested by the Sudanese government for participating in a peaceful protest. In late August, he was finally released.
Less than 24 hours after his safe return to the United States, I sat down with Rudwan to speak about his arrest, detention and torture at the hands of the Sudanese government.
We’d like to say a special thank you to everyone who joined our campaign with Sudan Sunrise to demand Rudwan’s release. We’re so grateful that he has finally been able to return home.
