Aziz Salmone Fall: Redécouvrir Sankara – Martyre de la liberté

Here we introduce to you Aziz Salome Fall, who is currently in Berlin, Germany for events and presentations organized by AfricAvenir:

The Egyptian-Senegalese political scientist Aziz Fall teaches Political Science, Anthropology and International Relations at McGill University and the University of Québec in Montreal, Canada. He considers himself an internationalist pan-Africanist and developed the concept of “Panafricentrage”. His parents, Prof. Fawzia Abdel Aziz Mohamed and Salmone Fall were both engaged and highly regarded pan-Africanists and had supported actively the escape to Egypt of the family of Patrice Lumumba after his assassination.

Aziz Fall was coordinator of the anti-apartheid network in Québec, he is President of the Aubin-Foundation, Chairman of the Ryerson-Center for Progressive Research and co-founder of the movement for an institutionalised dialogue among left-wing powers in Senegal. He is member of GRILA (The Group for Research and Initiative for the Liberation of Africa) with which he, together with a collective of 21 lawyers and prominent people, leads the first international African campaign against impunity – the Campaign for Justice for Thomas Sankara.

On the occasion of the publication of “Redécouvrir Sankara – Martyre de la liberté” AfricAvenir is proud to host Aziz Salmone Fall, who will hold a lecture and a one-day workshop on Thomas Sankaras life and legacy and the importance of the struggle against impunity in Berlin:
