Thomas Sankara: Fratricide in Burkina, Africa

Kanopy (Firm)
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Burkina Faso, Africa, October 15, 1987. Automatic gunfire breaks the evening's silence and kills President Thomas Sankara. Would the assassins have been sent by his brothers in arms, Blaise Compaore, with whom he had launched the Marxist Revolution a few years before? His main argument was also one of the assassins: Sankara had lost all sense of reality and was leading the Revolution into chaos. It needed to be rectified. But who really was behind his rectification and why? Dark forces from France, the former colonial power, envying neighbor states, wealthy business interests?
