Film event, Talk and exchange | Guest: Ousmane Miphal Lankoande aus Balai Citoyen

Dear Friedensau community, You are wholeheartedly invited to our film event October, 17th, at 7 pm in Aula.
“Revolution with bare hands. The trajectory of a people. Burkina Faso” is a filmic document of remembrance of the popular insurrection in Burkina Faso on 30th and 31st of October 2014 against the dictatorial regime of Blaise Compaoré. The film approaches protagonists of the revolution and visits emblematic symbolic places. It asks about reasons and motivations based in the living conditions of the population as well as in memories of foregone struggles during previous decades.

Talk and exchange with Burkinabe activist Ousmane Miphal Lankoande from Balai Citoyen.

Our guest Ousmane Miphal Lankoande is on the executive board of Balai Citoyen. During his short stay in Germany, Miphal would like to make his social movement better known. The "Balai Citoyen" (in German: bürgerlicher Besen) is a social movement in Burkina Faso that was founded in 2013. One year later, it was instrumental in the popular uprising against the dictatorial regime of Blaise Compaoré in Burkina Faso. To this day, Balai Citoyen, as part of the critical civil society in Burkina Faso, has made it its mission, through both political pressure and concrete policy proposals, to hold those in power accountable and to promote active and responsible engagement of the population in all public affairs.

The film is in French with English subtitles, the discussion will be in English/ French with translation.
