Dr. Amin Mekki Medani, prominent Sudanese human rights advocate and democracy campaigner, died in August 2018 after a long illness. In mid-December, a peaceful people’s revolution erupted in Sudan that is still going strong. In the January issue of Sudan Studies, Enough Project’s Senior Advisor Dr. Suliman Baldo writes a tribute to Dr. Amin. In the tribute, Dr. Baldo points out that the current unprecedented grassroots pro-democracy protests in Sudan capture what Dr. Amin spent all his life fighting for.
Dr. Baldo writes, “Dr. Amin also worked tirelessly to build a non-violent movement to press for democratic transformation, better human rights protection and a just peace, and to further the rule of law in Sudan. His vision of the greater good for his homeland and people succeeded in winning support not only from the broader political opposition but also from the armed opposition movements which were seeking to assert equal rights for their communities and equitable shares in the national wealth, as well as seeking political representation for the historically marginalised regions of Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile.”
