Abstract:In May 2015 thousands of citizens in Burundi took to the streets to protest when President Pierre Nkrunziza announced he would seek a third term. Protestors denounced this move as unconstitutional and are afraid that the President is going to establish a dictatorship. We meet the revolutionary leader Fanny in the Musaga district (a 'commune' of the capital Bujumbura) which has been the focus of the insurrection. He is trying to organise 1000 men to fight the police with stones. Whilst the capital burns the President campaigns in the provinces. Over one hundred thousand Burundians fled to Rwanda fearing reprisals from the government-backed militia. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
