The tribal war in Burundi goes back decades. And, it´s getting worse.
This week on teleSUR´s series, The Global African, host Bill Fletcher chats with Political Analyst, Bahati Jacques.
According to Jacques, the bid by the President of Burundi, Pierre Nkurunziza, to extend his leadership to a third term is worsening a local civil war. And, it´s unconstitutional!
¨The president of Burundi, as I understand, was supposed to serve only two terms.¨
Also, the full transcript of Bill´s conversation with Jacques, is right here.
Next, Bill discusses the issue of the seeming unavailability of employment opportunities for workers, of African descent, in the United States.
He discusses this topic with Dorcas Gilmore, an attorney and consultant focused on racial equity and solidarity economies and a co-founder of Baltimore Activating Solidarity Economies. She is also a board member of the National Black Worker Center Project.
Joining the conversation was Dr. Steven Pitts, associate chair of the University of California, Berkeley labor center.
They answer the question, ¨Are Black workers still needed in the society?¨
