If you have noticed that a lot of people now have a BLUE color for their profile pic on social media, its to show that person support for the country of Sudan.

This began after Mohamed Hashim Mattar, 26, was allegedly shot dead by the Sudanese paramilitary Rapid Support Forces during a crackdown on protesters in the country’s capital, Khartoum, on June 3.

Mattar’s favorite color, blue, was used on all his social profiles, and his friends and family put up this color on their profiles to honor his death.
There has been a media shutdown in the country and now protestors are using social media.
