Irish weavers and Sankara

Recommended Posts

This could be a ridiculous idea but its in my head so let me know what yous think.


After re-watching "Thomas Sankara: The Upright Man" and listening to the Clancy Brothers: Work of the weavers, it made me think should we replicate Sankara's ideas in Ireland.

In Burkina Faso he made all public service employees wear traditional Burkina Faso clothing made by local weavers. This was to promote local culture as well has making Burkina Faso less reliable on aid and more autonomous.


I wonder would it be an idea for revolutionaries in Ireland to bring some equivalent of this to Ireland and amongst our own movements? Though it could be possible for us to radicalise it further and to try and collective the weavers.
