Sudan’s President Bashir Says No Arab Spring, Just a Hot Summer

Sudanese President Umar al-Bashir said anti-government protests in the country aren’t comparable to the uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, the state-run SUNA news agency reported.

“There is no Arab spring in Sudan, there’s just a burning hot summer that we will burn our enemies with,” the Khartoum-based agency quoted al-Bashir as saying today during the inauguration of White Nile Sugar Co.

The protests started on June 16 when the government raised transportation and fuel prices, boosted taxes and devalued the currency to cope with the loss of about 75 percent of the nation’s oil output when South Sudan seceded in July.

The protests expanded later into a movement calling for an end to al-Bashir’s 23 years in power.
