Sudan is currently in protest in the wake of a brutal crackdown. 100s of men, women, and children have been murdered, injured and assaulted. News stations around the world have yet to inform us, the viewers of the tragedy and many are relying on social media to get the word out.

We need to get #BlueForSudan trending to help spread the news about Sudan. Mohamed Mattar of Sudan was fatally shot while trying to protect two women. Mattar’s favourite colour is blue. To honour his memory, social media users are changing their profile pictures to blue as a show of solidarity.

I am sadden to hear about the unrest in Sudan and I pray that peace will return to the nation soon.
