'Nubian queen' becomes Sudan protest symbol – BBC News

Video of a woman leading chants in anti-government protests in the capital of Sudan, Khartoum, has been shared hundreds of thousands of times on Twitter.

She has been dubbed “Kandaka”, which means Nubian queen.
The protesters are calling for the resignation of President Omar al-Bashir who has been accused of human rights abuses and allowing political corruption.

Since protests began in December, 38 people have died, according to government officials. Human Rights Watch says the number is higher.

    Revolution is good but this revolution serves israel interests not public interests in sudan.

  15. Beautiful country and beautiful people.. May god give you what is required… Love from India…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  16. Sudan is muslim and nubia or any other kufr symbol will not be accepted. Sudan has no relevance for black people globally. Black people are not a one nation people never have been. Nor is any skin colour lol.

  17. She is queen of Sudan . Her beauty is in her rebellious soul.
    Her movement makes any one to become rebellion. She is amazing.
    – from India

  18. Be careful Sudan. You may end up like Iraq and Libya. The U.S. and the Zionists may break your country into many pieces. All these public protects may not bring any results.

  19. Sudaneses are such nice people. Oh Lord , help Africa out of the claws of imperialism.

  20. She is not, there are many images in this revolution preferred to become a symbol as you say

  21. Wow, what a misleading title.ย  I think Egypt would also agree, more cultural appropriation, sad!ย  We know, Nubia is a region along the Nile river encompassing the area between Aswan in southern Egypt and Khartoum in central Sudan.ย  More false hope and delusion!

  22. You go black Queen. Show those Arab FEMALES who think that covering themselves in black from top to toe and only allowing men a say in how things are run, how a true Islamic WOMAN should act.
