Protest politics will grow slowly in South Sudan

Tuesday, September 14, 2021

Significance

However, the day passed with none of the protests the group invited, after the government warned people against participation and deployed a strong security presence onto the streets.

Impacts

  • Given arrest risks for would-be organisers, diaspora involvement will likely be crucial to any successful protest campaign.
  • The government risks stronger international rebuke when using harsh security countermeasures against dual nationals.
  • Donor desire to support civil society politics may result in funding for groups that become involved in future protest campaigns.
