The Legacy of Resistance and Authoritarianism in Burkina Faso

On January 23, 2022, Burkina Faso became the fourth country in West Africa to experience a military coup. The coup came after years of civilian and military discontent with President Kaboré’s political stewardship.

What can we learn about authoritarianism and grassroots-level mobilization from Burkina Faso’s turbulent political history? Join ALLIES this Wednesday, March 30th at 8 PM in Eaton Hall 206 to discuss these questions and more!

ALLIES: Reviewing the U.S. Military’s Targeted Strikes: A Discussion

The US military has a hidden history of conducting drone strikes on houses or vehicles in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq, that they believe had ISIS bombers or bomb materials.

Why has the US military hidden these reports and what needs to be done to prevent civilian lives from being lost in the future?
