Burkina, Uganda, Nigeria, Oh My! – CSM Report

Quick note: Christian Science Monitor has a great breakdown on the similarities and differences between various protests throughout Africa the past couple of weeks. Article is available here: http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Africa/Africa-Monitor/2011/0419/Do-protests-in-Nigeria-Uganda-and-Burkina-Faso-have-anything-in-common.

Main takeaway – Burkina’s protests have the greatest likelihood of leading to substantive changes. Nigeria and Uganda are still iffy.
