Rev. Herbert Daughtry protests Sudan president (41429)

Social activist the Rev. Herbert Daughtry formed a protest during the U.N. General Assembly against Sudan leader Omar al-Bashir. The protest was created in response to Bashir’s policies in the African country. The protestors walked down to 47th Street and Fifth Avenue, starting in front of the Sudan mission. Daughtry was accompanied by African leaders from Darfur, South Kordofan, Blue Nile and Abyei, according to Daughtry. However, Bashir wasn’t in New York City. The Sudan leader cancelled his trip to the U.N. In 2009 and 2010, Bashir was indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court.
