Social media turns blue for Sudan

People from all around the world are changing their profile pictures to blue on social media to express their solidarity with protesters in Sudan in the wake of a brutal crackdown which has killed dozens of people in the capital, Khartoum.

This blue wave started spreading across various social media platforms in the form of hashtag #BlueForSudan, in an attempt to honour the memory of one of Sudan’s crackdown victim 26-year-old engineer Mohamed Mattar, whose favourite colour was reportedly blue.

As being reported, Mohamad Mattar was fatally shot during the June 3 crackdown blamed by protesters on Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a paramilitary group led by a senior member of Sudan’s ruling Transitional Military Council.
