News Flash: Protests

I just wanted to keep everyone in the loop with the current on-goings in Burkina. Students are protesting and have burned down several police stations and other government buildings throughout the country in response to alleged police brutality. I’ll post links to articles and update this post as I find them.  I’ve just learned that text messaging has been turned off.

*Update* Texting is up and running again.
