Thomas Sankara was killed on this day in 1987. He was Burkina Faso’s first post-independence President, and to symbolise the renewal of the former French Colony, he renamed the country Burkina Faso, meaning the land of upright men, from Upper Volta. A foremost thinker and doer in African Feminism, he worked hard to improve the lives of girls and women in Burkina Faso, and he was also a highly respected pan-Africanist, anti-imperialist.

Why President Obama’s ISIS Strategy Is Just Another Form of ‘Regime Change’ - This Time in Syria

Is the U.S. forever doomed to repeat the same failed strategies of “nation building” over and over again?

President Barack Hussein Obama Jr. 2014 speech

Watching the President’s speech tonight, I was interested in hearing if he was going to offer anything new when it comes to countering the influence of ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham) and what if anything the United States should do to combat this extremism. It became rather clear to me early on though that the country is being led into yet another attempt to bring “regime change” to…

Unarmed black man, Ezell Ford, killed by LAPD August 13, 2014
On the heels of the Mike Brown tragedy, another Black man has been shot and killed by the police. The 24-year-old man succumbed to gun injuries after an encounter with police in South LA.
The incident happened Monday evening, shortly after a shooting was reported at the intersection of West 65th Street and South Broadway. The LAPD stopped a man 200 blocks north of the 65th block when things took a dangerous turn. According to a police statement, officers opened fire after “a struggle ensued.”
The man, who was later identified as Ezell Ford, was then transported to the nearest hospital where he underwent surgery but later died. Ford is one of countless victims who have recently died at the hands of police- who are to protect and serve the community.
Was Ford killed for simply being a young, African-American male – the very same characteristics that claimed the lives of John Crawford and Mike Brown?
The mother of the victim, Tritobia Ford,  said her son was lying on the ground and obeying the officers’ commands when he was shot. Multiple reports indicate he was unarmed.
Further details on the shooting is underway and will be investigated by LAPD’s Force Investigation Division. The LAPD is currently being sued by Marlene Pinnock, a homeless woman whose vicious beating at the hands of a still unidentified officer was caught on tape. Her lawsuit alleges excessive force, assault, battery.

The surrounding south LA community has organized a protest to demand justice for Ezell on Sunday, August 17 at the LAPD headquarters at 3 p.m.
Rest in power, Ezell. No justice, no peace!
