Thousands of young Sudanese are demanding an end to Omar al-Bashir's violent rule.

Rudwan Dawood and Widad Derwish, members of Girifna, the pro-democratic youth movement that spans Sudan and South Sudan, are fighting for basic human rights.

Through their friendship, we glimpse a world of grass roots, daring activism challenging one of the world's most brutal regimes.

Rudwan and Widad are two of hundreds of young Sudanese who make up Girifna, meaning 'we are fed up', which was originally founded to challenge electoral corruption but which must now fight extreme circumstances - conflict, genocide, arrest, torture and the partition of their country.
