Has an internet blackout killed Sudan's revolution? – BBC News

In Sudan, the ruling Military Council has switched off the internet in response to protests which took place on 3 June 2019.

BBC Africa’s Security correspondent Tomi Oladipo visits Khartoum and looks at how the switch off is affecting both the protesters’ ability to organise and also the economics of a country that was already struggling financially.

  1. Who cares, as long as it does not affect my internet . Muslims are not supposed to be on the internet anyway it says so it that Quran book they are all BRAINWASHED with .

  2. Dear BBC News,
    The way I see it, no matter how many upgrades and gadgets
    "The Book of Faces" gets,
    it will *never* be able to wash you’re dishes, garden, cook, clean or bathe for you.
    Also, *Anti social media* will *never* replace a hug! 🙅
    Love from Michigan USA 💗
    Peace ✌

  3. We should strive to invent a technology that allows internet access without passing through governments. Maybe via satellite and there is a need to make very cheap

  4. A low IQ stone aged people cannot be ruled by a democracy. As every dictator knows, such people only understand brutal force. The very best scenario for Sudan is to welcome White rule. Under White rule no one starves, everyone has clean drinking water, every child can attend school. White rule means prosperity for all.
    White people – truly a gift to all mankind.

  5. what revolution.
    All are designed western chaos. And these so called protesters are nothing but brainwashed zombie.

  6. Internet blackout and selective restricted bandwidth is best for all countries, it’s become a nuisance, and is a dirty filthy pest which pukes hatred and is disgusting. It’s a meme syndrome, looser mentality.

  7. Another EUrotrash British Colony left in a mess. Lol LondonStan is their for the Brits to enjoy. Make sure you rub the Brits nose in their Shit!

  8. Just like the BBC did to Tommy Robinson when he exposed their propaganda by catching the BBC red handed with undercover footage #Panodrama

  9. Coming to the UK for free tax .free home free food .free bills free car .free school free nhs free bus s.free tv licence .the new labour is ready to kill off the uk .byeee nannystate shithole

  10. What’s happening about the Peterborough election scandal? Are the police still investigating the postal vote rigging allegations, or has there been a coverup.

  11. Like the old saying goes, "he who controls the information, controls the world". This social media is a government’s worst nightmare come true, because they no longer control the information being fed to their sheeple. Sudan just banned the whole internet to deal with the problem, but other governments in Europe just pressure the social media companies to remove users that speak against them. For years the US based social media sites refused to cooperate with the EU countries that told them to take down videos that they said violated their hate speech laws. Since the EU has threatened these companies with large fines and also threatened to block their sites from Europe, these cowardly companies have given in, and are banning people such as Tommy Robinson at the request of the UK government. Everyone should stop using facebook, twitter, and you tube and go to sites like bitchute that don’t censor free speech. These big 3 social media sites convinced Obama and the government to pass laws years ago, that protected them from lawsuits. The claimed they didn’t violate anyone’s 1st amendment free speech rights and that they were neutral platforms for everyone, but recently they have started banning people such as Alex Jones and other conservatives. Time to abolish this law and allow these companies to be sued for violating our 1st amendment constitutional rights.

  12. The time is coming when we the British people will no longer put up with your manipulation and agenda ridden bullshbit. The momentum is growing at last.

  13. Organize on the ground like black Americans did in the 1960s. Word of mouth is your best advertising! Get to work black people! You don’t need to be a slave to the internet!

  14. Colonial regime changes at work,these scumbags need your oil.They don’t and will never care about Sudanese people. Divide and rule 😂😂

  15. So disgusting how people shut down the internet in order to try to control people. This world is filled with evil & sorcery

  16. They turned off the whole internet? That’s pretty impressive.

    On a serious note, remember when IRC servers were made to stop these exact journalist blackouts? That was a good time.

  17. Well played Sudan’s guards, guard your country against Shias rebels or will become next Houthis Yemen, or Assad Syria, or nasrallahs Iraq, or Hamas Gaza, or Hezbollah Lebanon and etc etc , beware of Shia terrorists globally and especially in majority Sunni nations…..

  18. Just a question, wouldn’t it be easier if we mass printed posters and put it all over the city? Wouldn’t that get more people faster and easier?

  19. Over 500 people have been killed – including 19 children, thousands missing and thousands more detained. But we only care about humanitarian crises when oil or $ is involved. Sad truth in many cases.

  20. BBC why are you so slow uploading videos about actual relevant events in the UK? We seem to just get random articles from obscure places around the world. Most of your videos often have a massive left wing bias too. Rarely if ever do you do a positive article about English people or events going on in England. British people fund you so can you please start posting up to date videos that are relevant to British current affairs please? I can often get news articles about the UK from American sites days before you.

  21. A government can be defeated with, two way radios. The Mexican government was defeated by the cartels using this method.

  22. 美国“魔鬼三角阵”的结构剖析
    Analysis of the Structure of the American "Devil Triangle"
    维持中国40多年经济增长的外部环境正在发生深刻的变化。中国经济是否会在外部环境的变化中跟自然界的恐龙一样在地球上消失?这是一个严肃的战略性问题,需要严肃的答案。The external environment that sustains China’s economic growth for more than 40 years is undergoing profound changes. Will the Chinese economy disappear on Earth like the dinosaurs of nature in the changes of the external environment? This is a serious strategic issue that requires serious answers.
    The current state of China’s economy is related to the US-led world political, economic, and military structure. It is related to the US national strategy designed and implemented by the United States and is related to the cohesive force formed by the US "Devil Triangle."
    We usually think that the United States has a strong overall strength. It is difficult for any country or region to compete with the United States. It can only be obeyed and obeyed, and it has formed a superstition and fear of the comprehensive strength of the United States. However, no one has carefully studied and analyzed the United States. The internal composition of strength and the true connotation of various specific forces, no one has studied the specific forces within the United States’ comprehensive strength through the strategic deterrent and destruction capabilities formed by the combination of time and place, and no one has proposed to resolve the United States on this basis. Practical comprehensive measures of strength.
    The overall strength of the United States is composed of three forces, namely, the "smart power" of the United States, the "soft power" of the United States, and the "hard power" of the United States. Here, we need to redefine the "smart power", "soft power" and "hard power" of the United States to avoid confusion and confusion between concepts.
    the "smart power"
    The "smart power" of the United States refers to the power of the United States to take advantage of the dollar hegemony and the pricing power of the global financial and commodity markets.
    Specifically, the "smart power" of the United States includes: (1) the shaping and control capabilities of the global monetary system with the US dollar as its core; (2) the dominance of the US dollar interest rate policy, exchange rate policy, and interest rate policies and exchange rates for other countries. Policy control capabilities; (3) global pricing power of oil, food, and other commodities, manipulation of global stock markets and futures markets; (4) through dollar hegemony, interest rate pricing, exchange rate pricing, and financial Commodity market pricing ability to export inflation and transfer the US domestic economic crisis to other countries and regions. (5) A global financial institution system consisting of financial institutions such as banks, securities, insurance, trusts, and funds that are not controlled by foreign capital.
    The "smart power" of the United States is actually the ability of the United States to take advantage of other countries and regions in the world. The "smart power" of the United States has created more than 70% of the gross national product of the United States.

    Soft power
    The "soft power" of the United States refers to the US system, technology, culture, education and other forces.
    The specific contents of the US "soft power" include: (1) the system established by the United States based on its own national interests and long-term interests, as well as the ability to maintain and adapt to such systems; (2) the concept of culture, education, and ideology (3) the ability to build, control and direct domestic and international public opinion systems, and to form the power of global discourse; (4) the right to speak, vote and manipulate the international organization; (5) Science and technology innovation capabilities; (6) Global penetration of communication and network information technology; (7) Ability to implement cultural penetration, policy manipulation, political control, and support for agents or agents in targeted strategic countries.
    "The soft power is the softest and hardest stuff in the world, which can flow into every corner without any barriers." Two thousand five hundred years ago, our ancestors had described the terrible power of "soft power." The United States is undoubtedly the best country that has developed and applied the "soft power".
    hard power
    The "hard power" of the United States refers to the complete agricultural industrial system, industrial system and circulation industrial system that the United States is not controlled by external capital, and the integration of sea, land, air and sky based on the domestic industrial system. Global military strike force.
    In addition, the "hard power" of the United States also includes strategic reserves and control of oil and major commodities, and NATO military alliances.
    The United States’ "smart power", "soft power" and "hard power" can cooperate and combine with each other, which constitutes a strategically-encircled goal that points to a very clear "power triangle."


    These "strength triangles", or the dominant role of one of the forces, can be matched by the other two forces; or they can work together in a coordinated manner to jointly attack and jointly strike. Regardless of the former Soviet Union, or the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, it has been invincible so far. This is the "Devil Triangle" of the United States.
    美国围剿苏联并促使强大的苏联土崩瓦解堪称是“美国魔鬼三角形”的经典之作。The United States encircled the Soviet Union and prompted the powerful Soviet collapse to be a classic of the "American Devil Triangle."

  23. Britain likes to talk about human rights, so why not help the refugees in the Middle East. This way the world is peaceful.
