Fight the colonizer with your Thomas Sankara T-shirt!

Thomas Isidore Noël Sankara, militant social campaigner and President of Burkina Faso

Thomas Sankara « the African Che Guevara » is a revolutionary leader from Burkina Faso. Anti-imperialist and panafricanist, he led the Burkina revolution and fought France. He is the one who changed the colonial name Haute-Volta to Burkina Faso, “nation of the men of integrity”. His politics was centered on improving education and fighting corruption to help the emancipation of his people.

As president of one of the poorest countries in the world, Sankara believed fervently that Burkina Faso could learn to sustain itself without foreign aid. He refused aid packages from the International Monetary Fund that, he said, came with strings attached. As he famously proclaimed, “The one who feeds you usually imposes his will upon you.” At the summit of the Organization of African Unity in July 1987, he tried to persuade other African countries to collectively refuse to pay their financial debts to their former colonizers. “The origins of debt go back to colonialism’s origins,” he said, his voice brimming with emotion. “We cannot repay the debt because we are not responsible for this debt. On the contrary, others owe us something that no money can pay for. That is to say, the debt of blood.”

Nowadays, Thomas Sankara is one of the most important symbols of black revolutions and african emancipation. Pay homage to the memory of this outstanding man who made the most powerful countries cower in fear until they assassinated him to stop his righteous action.
