“Homeland or death, we will triumph!” ~ Thomas Sankara
On 30 October 2014 after 27 years of the brutal rule of Blaize Campaore, the man who murdered our brother and leader Thomas Sankara, thousands of Burkinabe’ people inspired by the revolutionary ideas of Thomas Sankara stormed parliament and set it on fire! Through revolution the Burkinabe’ people avenged the assassination of Thomas Sankara by removing the evil man Blaise Compaore and torching parliament which proved to be a house of lies and corruption. Blaise Compaore fled from the righteous rage of the revolutionary Sankarist masses who were dishing out revolutionary justice to him. The people then appointed a transitional government to oversee the election of a new government. In this process they correctly excluded those (who had worked with Compaore to oppress the Burkinabe’ people) from participation in the election.
BLF condemns the arrest yesterday of the interim President, Prime Minister and cabinet members by a reactionary faction of the army that remains loyal to Blaise Compaore.
We call for the immediate release of the interim leadership of Burkina Faso! We call also for the arrest of the Blaise Compaore conspirators! We are encouraged by the Peoples protest against the leadership of Blaise Compaore.
The power of peoples action will return Burkina Faso to the shinning path of Thomas Sankara’s dream – the dream of constructing a black first socialist state to end slavery and produce total freedom for blacks.
Down with imperialism!
Down with neo-colonialism!
