The civil unrest in Senegal as protesters face force from militarized police

03 Jul 2023  |  news.prairiepublic.org
Senegal, typically seen as stable, is facing civil unrest due to high youth unemployment and civil rights clampdowns. Protests have escalated with the militarized police force responding with excessive force. The unrest was triggered by the conviction of opposition leader Ousmane Sonko on charges of corrupting youth, amidst his trial for rape. Amnesty Senegal reported at least 23 deaths and nearly 400 injuries during the protests. The government has restricted social media and internet access, and President Macky Sall has called for an investigation into the violence. Protesters view the charges against Sonko as a political move to prevent him from running in the presidential elections. The police have been accused of using children as human shields and hiring armed civilians to quell the protests.
