On 15 October 2020, the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum issued a Security Alert regarding multiple planned protests in the city, which reads in part as follows:

“Event: Activists in Khartoum have indicated they intend on hosting daily protests over the following week, with a culminating protest on 21 October. Protests may occur anywhere in Khartoum, but historical protest venues include the Jackson Bus Station, the Ministry of Justice, Freedom Yard, and the intersection of Satine (60th Street) and Abdalla Al-Tayeb Street.”
