The people of Burkina Faso are having a revolution!!
Young, old, men and women, the people have had enough. Please take a look at photo 1, citizens have taken over the national news station, photo 2, citizens have taken over parliament and the last photo, parliament building has been set ablaze.
why? because the protesters are angry at plans to allow Burkina Faso’s President Blaise who wanted to extend his 27-year term by another 5 years!
This is one of the most important events in sub-Saharan Africa, please take note that this generation of Africans are not sleeping.
In the words of Thomas Sankara “While revolutionaries as individuals can be murdered, you cannot kill ideas”
“Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment… We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a United front will be brought about…”- Malcolm X(May 9, 1925 – February 21,1965)
