Wefag Gorashi

HRD, member
Khartoum University Student Committee

Wefag Gorashi is a Sudanese student rights activist and the leader of several youth groups in Khartoum, she is a member of the Khartoum University Student Committee working on the organisation of peaceful protests, mainly in connection with the ban of all forms of violence and weapon-carrying inside the university.


The ongoing violence by government forces, pro-government militia groups and anti-government armed group forms the backdrop to continued harassment, arbitrary arrests, incommunicado detentions and alleged torture of human rights defenders (HRDs) by Sudanese military and security forces. Freedom of expression and freedom of association and assembly have been increasingly curtailed. In particular, NGO members, journalists and student activists have been targeted.
