Thomas Sankara: The Upright Man
Report on the situation in Palestine
December 21, 1949, is the birthday of Thomas Sankara, the Marxist revolutionary leader of Burkina Faso, who is commonly referred to as “Africa’s Che Guevara”. As the leader of Burkina Faso from 1983-1987, Sankara presided over an incredibly progressive period that saw mass literacy and vaccination campaigns, huge strides forward in the rights of women, and infrastructure development as well as spirited defiance of Imperialism.
Come to Sunday’s film showing of the documentary film “Thomas Sankara: The Upright Man” and hear a special report by Rasheed Green, community activist and Workers World Party organizer.
In addition, there will be a report on the situation in Palestine and the recent pronouncements by Trump to “recognize” Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Get updates on struggles against police abuse and other local events including the bus riders union.
We will have refreshments and light dinner at 4:30 pm. The meeting will start at 5 pm promptly.
