The important role of the population in the revolution of Burkina Faso (DIEEEO74-2015)

Burkina Faso history highlights due to the active participation of its population, and a high capacity of reaction upon social inequalities. Throughout history, a pattern could be identified, also very common in neighbor countries, in which different individuals rule ascending by coup d’états, and where the army plays an important role. The last example where this social force has been shown, has been the Campore government overthrown which has been characterized by its extensive duration and corruption.
