How poetry is taking on state censorship in Sudan

The country Sudan is not the mos pleasant one to live in, nor be it it youngest brother South Sudan. The dictatorial regime of Omar al-Bashir is keen on staying in power and repressing its own population. He is wanted by the International Crimininal Court in The Hague (The Netherlands), but uptill now he escaped a trial (thanks to others leaders who have a poor trackrecord concerning human rights).

Poets raise their words and voices.
