History of the ICJS International Campaign Justice for Sankara
A quarter of a century of struggle!
GRILA was born in 1984, coinciding with the Burkina Faso’s revolution. Both were working to realize the pan-African dream and a self-centered development. Following the assassination of Thomas Sankara in 1987, GRILA reacted strongly and for 33 years organized commemorative events in all its sections every October 15, never missing an opportunity to recall the work of the Sankarist revolution and help its supporters.
