Thomas Sankara: Claiming, and critiquing, the Burkinabé revolution

Thomas Sankara: Claiming, and critiquing, the Burkinabé revolution

As someone whose socialist politics developed out of three stints living in Africa, I find myself in between these two adversarial positions. On the one hand, as I will argue today, Burkina Faso during the 1980s was not capable of carrying out a revolution from below, due to the weak and divided nature of the country’s working class, and the lack of development in the rural areas.
