Media Roundtable: The ouster of Omar al-Bashir; the links between climate change & deadly floods

Chanting at night in front of the army HQ in khartoum.

  On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss the rapidly unfolding situation in Sudan. After months of protests, Sudan’s military stepped in and removed President Omar al-Bashir. Activists call the military takeover a coup that aims to reproduce the same faces that protesters revolted against. What’s next for Sudan?

We will talk about the links between climate change and the recent devastating floods in the US and around the globe.
