TBT: Video Of Thomas Sankara Accusing France Of Racism And Interventions Into African Politics

On today’s instalment of #ThrowbackThursday, we share a video of revolutionary ex-Burkinabe President Thomas Sankara criticizing France’s long-standing and unwarranted involvement in African politics.

He also criticizes then French President, Francois Mitterrand for allowing ex-apartheid South African Prime Minister and President Pieter Willem Botha to travel to France.


Sankara boldly addressed Mitterrand in the face when he visited Burkina Faso in 1986. He was assassinated in a coup organized by his supposedly good friend Blaise Compaoré the following year.
