A Solidarity March for Sudan was held on Saturday October 5 2013, organized by members of Toronto's Sudanese community. They came together to Protest for Human Rights in Sudan due to recent events.

A couple of hundred Torontonians turned out on very short notice with dozens of homemade signs to underscore the sudden upsurge in the Human Rights violations of the people in Sudan.

At least one, and maybe two, Members of Parliament attended the demonstration. NDP MP Craig Scott tweeted a number of photographs during the protest.

During the march, people chanted and called upon the Prime Minister by name to "End The Silence".

Due to Nuit Blanche preparation in Yonge-Dundas Square later in the evening, the demonstrators marched in proximity to the Square, notably on the wide sidewalk on the south side of Dundas Street between Yonge and Bay.
