Day number 2 for Thomas Sankara.
As great as he was for his people, it’s good to remember that he also did some unjust things.
In order to achieve this radical transformation of society, Sankara increasingly exerted authoritarian control over the nation. He eventually banned unions and a free press, which he believed could stand in the way of his plans. To counter his opposition in towns and workplaces around the country, he also prosecuted corrupt officials, alleged counter-revolutionaries and "lazy workers" in Popular Revolutionary Tribunals. Additionally, as an admirer of Fidel Castro's Cuban Revolution, Sankara set up Cuban-style Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.
