wiiiiii, finally I can post my question isit la...wiiiiiiiiiiii Fatherland or death, we will win!!!!!!!! This was famous exclamation of many revolutionaries, including Thomas Sankara. What would be the most suitable expression on kreyol...

O o!   You sound very excited.  I'm glad you're so happy :)

I think I'll say it in Creole as:
Lapatri ou lanmò!
Fatherland or death!

Thomas Sankara is right up there with Toussaint Louverture, Jean Jacques Dessalines and Capois Lamort.  Burkina benefitted a lot from his programs.  He's even more of a champion because he CHOSE to die for what he believed in rather than taking his country back to the old ways.  That's a true hero :)
