Burkina Faso: Sankarist parties form united front

first_imgTen political parties claiming to uphold the political legacy of martyred Burkina Faso Marxist and Pan-Africanist revolutionary Thomas Sankara have formed an alliance.The unity agreement came several months after a national uprising which ousted former coup-leader-turned-president Blaise Compaoré, who is now living in exile in neighboring Ivory Coast.Compaoré was forced to flee after a people’s rebellion in late October and early November, when hundreds of thousands of youth and workers took to the streets demanding that he not stand for another term. When it appeared that the parliament would allow Compaoré to run again, the building was attacked, occupied and set on fire.Continuing unrest prompted two military coups over the following days. Many protesters demanded the immediate return to civilian rule. A coalition of military and political leaders established an interim government mandated to hold elections on Oct. 11, 2015.Between the years of 1983-87, Sankara had led a revolutionary movement that took power and sought to transform the postcolonial agricultural state into a resource for the improvement of the living conditions of the people and a model for other nations in Africa. However, Sankara, known as the “Che Guevara of Africa,” was assassinated along with 12 other military and political officials in a counterrevolutionary coup led by Compaoré, who remained in power for over 27 years.Even the Associated Press noted in a report: “Sankara was a Marxist, anti-imperialist revolutionary who in four short years in power doubled the number of children in schools, reduced infant mortality, redistributed land from feudal landlords to peasants and planted 10 million trees that still help shade Ouagadougou, the capital.” (May 25)His policies drew the ire of the government of neighboring Ivory Coast, a client of French imperialism. The Ivory Coast regime has always been suspected of playing a role in the coup that removed Sankara from power.After Sankara was murdered on Oct. 15, 1987, the country reverted to being an outpost of French and U.S. imperialist intrigue. During the tenure of Compaoré, Burkina Faso became the leading producer of gold on the African continent. The neocolonial state served as a base for French military intervention in neighboring Mali.The widow of Captain Sankara, Mariam Sankara, who often speaks out on various aspects of Burkinabe politics, urged the parties to come together in order to challenge the parties backed by the imperialists in the upcoming elections.Me Benewende Stanislas Sankara was recently endorsed as a candidate by the 10 political parties that claim to be heirs of the ideology of Burkina Faso’s martyred leader. Me Sankara, no relative of the former revolutionary leader, is an attorney involved in demanding that an inquiry be conducted into the October 1987 coup and assassinations. Me Sankara is one of the lawyers representing Thomas Sankara’s family.Exhumation of alleged grave siteAfter a judicial order in March by the Burkinabe courts, a grave reported to contain the remains of Thomas Sankara and other leaders killed on that fateful day in 1987 was exhumed on May 25. This is the first phase in efforts to determine if in fact Sankara was buried at this location and what were the real causes of his and the others’ deaths.According to a report published by Reuters on May 25, “Sankara’s relatives have for years pressed for his body to be tested, saying they suspect it may not be that of the former president.” Sankara’s sons, Philippe and Auguste, are providing DNA samples for comparison.Recent biography of Sankara publishedA biography of Sankara was released in late 2014 chronicling his political life: “Thomas Sankara, An African Revolutionary,” by Ernest Harsch, a long-time researcher and analyst of African affairs.The book comes as mass discontent is growing among youth and workers throughout Africa. The uprising in Burkina Faso reflected the failure of the neocolonial African nation-states to address the fundamental needs and aspirations of the majority.Sankara sought to rapidly advance Africa’s development by breaking ties with imperialism, which continues to hamper the forward progress of the continent. Over the last seven years, since the formal founding of AFRICOM (the U.S. Africa Command), the Pentagon and the CIA have escalated U.S. intervention in Africa, severely weakening the capacity of African states to resolve their own national security imperatives.Events in Mali, Burundi, the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of South Sudan, Somalia and other states demonstrate that, without unity and self-determination, there can be no genuine sovereignty for the formerly colonized nations. To organize the people of Africa on an anti-imperialist basis there has to be an ideological reorientation toward socialism to restructure society in the interests of the workers, farmers and youth.Harsch’s book chronicles Sankara’s journey from his youth to his recruitment into the military, rising political consciousness, and burgeoning anger with the country’s — then called Upper Volta — poverty, underdevelopment and economic corruption. During his rise to power, Sankara utilized these conditions to organize the people for revolutionary change to defeat the antiquated neocolonial system.Sankara and his comrades instituted economic and social ideas that steered away from dependency on the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. They relied instead on Burkina Faso’s resources to construct educational institutions, hospitals and state-directed projects aimed at improving the quality of life and the liberation of women.Not surprisingly, Sankara’s revolutionary ideology and practical programs gained tremendous support both inside Burkina Faso and throughout Africa. Unfortunately, a myriad of opponents, including dissident factions within his own political camp as well as the military, finally moved to overthrow the national democratic revolution. Nonetheless, during the uprising in 2014, thousands of youth and workers held banners and wore shirts with the image of Sankara.For the upcoming elections, it is essential that a political program is developed that can win over the majority of working people, farmers and youth inside the country. A breakthrough in Burkina Faso toward a revolutionary vision of the future would have a profound impact on Africa and the international scene.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Get to know the 2018 Frog Camp directors

first_imgWater line breaks affect Moudy for third time this year printFrog Camp has been offering incoming students an opportunity to meet new people and learn about the Horned Frog community for more than twenty years. The theme this year is Frog Camp For Everyone and focuses on showing students how valuable they are to TCU and avoiding stereotypes, expectations and judgments, according to the executive director of the Frog Camp Director Board, Mackenzie Heard.This year, thirteen students were chosen by Student Development Services to be Frog Camp directors. They each have their own reason why Frog Camp is special to them.Aimee Springfield – History and Secondary Education – Benbrook, Texas“I have absolutely no problem embarrassing myself.” (Photo courtesy of Aimee Springfield)“Frog Camp is unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I have not felt pressure to be anyone but who I am and I believe that all stemmed from going through Frog Camp. It set the tone for how I would view TCU, view myself and how I would involve myself in the community. I know this is a big statement, but I can say with all honesty that Frog Camp has changed me and my life for the better. It’s not just about dance parties and fun, it is a meaningful experience that challenges each camper to think how they view themselves, each other and the world.”Alison Armstrong – Studio Art and Religion – Denver, Colorado“I did Irish dancing for seven years!” (Photo courtesy of Alison Armstrong)“I made some of my best friends to this day at Frog Camp and walked away with amazing role models in my life, my facilitators. Frog Camp sets the foundation for everything to come at TCU. Facilitating for the past two summers has made me more confident and assures my place at TCU. I really value what Frog Camp has to offer and as a director I now get the incredible opportunity to create an amazing experience and influence campers.”Allie Strehle – Political Science – Minnetrista, Minnesota“I once tried out for America’s Got Talent.” (Photo courtesy of Allie Strehle)“Frog Camp impacted my TCU experience more than I ever realized it would. In my first year, it convinced me that moving across the country and going to TCU was the right decision. The first year I got to facilitate, it opened my eyes to the student leaders across campers who had a passion for first year students. Frog Camp connected me with a community that has similar values and passions. Now, as a director, I have developed many new skills and it has opened my mind even more to the endless possibilities on campus.”Annabel Hillstrom – Marketing – Katy, Texas“I’m double-minoring in Comparative Race and Ethics Studies and Women and Gender Studies.” (Photo courtesy of Annabel Hillstrom)“Participating in Frog Camp not only introduced me to my best friends, but it has taught me so much about myself, and about this school. It has provided me with so many opportunities to try new things and to challenge myself to be a better person. Frog Camp fosters a sense of community with the student body before they even move on campus. It is so important that incoming students know they have a place on this campus and it all starts with their first-year experience.”Chad Morris – Supply and Value Chain Management – Yorba Linda, California“I’m an EMT.” (Photo courtesy of Chad Morris)“After being a Frog Camper I knew that this was something I wanted to be a part of and make a difference. It was the reason I made some of the friends I still have on campus today, and from facilitating, it constantly gives me a rewarding feeling when I see my campers thrive on campus. As a director, it’s no longer about me. It’s allowed me to develop a selfless heart toward camp and campers. I think everyone should be a part of Frog Camp because no matter our differences, we are all Horned Frogs. Don’t blink. It goes by quicker than you think.”Devyn Dillenberg – Communication Studies – Palos Verdes, California“I cut off my finger when I was 2!” (Photo Courtesy of Devyn Dillenberg)“Being a director gives me a better sense of what really goes into the program. Every decision, no matter how small, is very intentional and our entire team devotes their time and energy towards making it. We encourage people to be themselves, to respect others, to make TCU their home and to feel empowered to make TCU better than when they found it. The ideas you leave Frog Camp with directly come back to campus in the mentalities and actions of students and shape the environment and culture of our school.”Hailee Hogan – Early Childhood Education – Franklin, Massachusetts“I had double jaw surgery when I was 16– I have multiple plates and screws in my face and a fake chin implant. Woo– super cute!” (Photo courtesy of Hailee Hogan)“It’s not just Frog Camp that is such an important part of TCU’s culture – it’s the entire First Year Experience. It reflects TCU’s desire to welcome incoming students with open arms, which allows for all of their programs to dramatically impact our culture on campus. The relationships that I have formed with my campers and watching them grow on our campus is the most incredible thing in the world. Being a director is a huge responsibility and truly an honor.”James Terry Jr. (J.J. Terry) – Strategic Communication – Little Rock, Arkansas “The first instrument I was able to perfect was the flute.” (Photo courtesy of J.J. Terry)“Being a director has taught me to be more intentional about the conversations and the actions I make. I get the experience to show people how special they are and the impact they can have when they reach their full potential. Frog Camp gives you a glimpse of the beginning relationships you can make during your time here at TCU, the interesting activities you can get involved in, the pride of being a Horned Frog and what we value on campus.”Mackenzie Heard – Communication Studies – Basalt, Colorado“I have loved Frog Camp and what it stands for since the very beginning as a camper. Frog Camp has the ability to shape and change the culture of TCU hand in hand with all of the other First Year Experience programs. It’s the social orientation for what it means to be apart of the Horned Frog family. Our theme this year, Frog Camp For Everyone, is the driver for all that our board does. It’s been really cool to see the impact it’s made so far, but I can’t wait to see how it shapes this summer.”Mason Floyd – Economics and Political Science – Springfield, Missouri“I love to garden.” (Photo courtesy of Mason Floyd)“I love the mission of Frog Camp: getting first year students connected with a group that can support them before school even begins, making friends and just trying to create an atmosphere on TCU’s campus that is conductive to success for all students. Frog Camp made me recognize that college shouldn’t be scary or dreadful, instead it represented a new opportunity and another chance for me to grow as an individual.”Mavis Tang – Accounting – Taixing, China“I love Vine, no shame.” (Photo courtesy of Mavis Tang)“Coming from China, I was super excited but nervous about entering college. Frog Camp was my first introduction to TCU, and I fell in love with it. Becoming a Frog Camp facilitator was just one of the many things I could do to give back. Now serving as a director, I get to experience so much behind-the-scene work. Frog Camp made me feel more comfortable in my own skin and helped me believe in myself more. It represents TCU and what we value as a Horned Frog family.”Sean Kalb – Accounting – Dubuque, Iowa“I never visited TCU! My first time on campus (and in Texas) was for orientation two weeks before classes started!” (Photo courtesy of Sean Kalb)“I had an instinct to be part of something bigger than myself and I knew in my heart that Frog Camp would allow me to do so. Every experience I’ve had with Frog Camp has touched my life in some way. It helped me see that I embody qualities that are valued at this school, even if they might be underrepresented.  It shows us that TCU is truly a family and teaches us to love and respect all people and leave a meaningful mark on everyone we meet. Frog Camp has a place in the hearts of every member of the Horned Frog family and we’re working hard to make sure that happens this summer and beyond.”Thompson Berhow – Accounting – Nashville, Tennessee“I love hip-hop/rap music!” (Photo courtesy of Thompson Berhow)“TCU is very unique because students are so passionate about a variety of topics and are unapologetically who they are. I believe that this sense of confidence and the appreciation of self begins with Frog Camp. It instilled so much confidence into who I am and what I can add to the TCU family. It is because of my Frog Camp experience that I am able to be myself on our campus!” Marathon runner persists after being mauled by a pit bull Grace Toups Twitter Linkedin Linkedin Grace Toups Grace is a senior journalism major and minor in business.
