You can't stop thinking

“I’m never gonna hold you like I did / Or say I love you to the kids / You’re never gonna see it in my eyes / It’s not gonna hurt me when you cry / I’m not gonna miss you.” The situation is undeniably hurtful but we can'stop thinking we’re heartbroken over the loss of our beloved ones. "You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom". Malcolm X

A Candle For Remembering

A Candle For Remembering
May this memorial candle lights up the historical past of our beloved Country: Rwanda, We love U so much. If Tears could build a stairway. And memories were a lane. I would walk right up to heaven. To bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken. No time to say goodbye. You were gone before I knew it And. Only Paul Kagame knows why. My heart still aches with sadness. And secret tears still flow. What It meant to lose you. No one will ever know.

Welcome to Home Truths

The year is 1994, the Fruitful year and the Start of a long epoch of the Rwandan RPF bloody dictatorship. Rwanda and DRC have become a unique arena and fertile ground for wars and lies. Tutsi RPF members deny Rights and Justice to the Hutu majority, to Congolese people, publicly claim the status of victim as the only SurViVors while millions of Hutu, interior Tutsi and Congolese people were butchered. Please make RPF criminals a Day One priority. Allow voices of the REAL victims to be heard.

Everybody Hurts

“Everybody Hurts” is one of the rare songs on this list that actually offers catharsis. It’s beautifully simple: you’re sad, but you’re not alone because “everybody hurts, everybody cries.” You’re human, in other words, and we all have our moments. So take R.E.M.’s advice, “take comfort in your friends,” blast this song, have yourself a good cry, and then move on. You’ll feel better, I promise.—Bonnie Stiernberg

Why did Kagame this to me?

Why did Kagame this to me?
Can't forget. He murdered my mother. What should be my reaction? FYI: the number of orphans in Rwanda has skyrocketed since the 1990's Kagame's invasion. Much higher numbers of orphans had and have no other option but joining FDLR fighters who are identified as children that have Lost their Parents in Kagame's Wars inside and outside of Rwanda.If someone killed your child/spouse/parent(s) would you seek justice or revenge? Deep insight: What would you do to the person who snuffed the life of someone I love beyond reason? Forgiving would bring me no solace. If you take what really matters to me, I will show you what really matters. NITUTIRWANAHO TUZASHIRA.

RPF committed the unspeakable

RPF committed the unspeakable
The perverted RPF committed the unspeakable.Two orphans, together against the world. Point is the fact that their parents' murder by Kagame & RPF held no shock in the Western world. Up to now, kagame and his death squads still enjoy impunity. What goes through someone's mind as they know RPF murdered their parents? A delayed punishment is actually an encouragment to crime. “I always think I am a peaceful person but if someone harmed someone near and dear to me, I don't think I could be so peaceful. I would like to believe that I would seek justice - I would devote myself to bringing the 'perp' to a non-happy ending but would that be enough? You'd have to be in the situation I suppose before you could actually know how you would feel or what you would do”. Jean-Christophe Nizeyimana, Libre Penseur

This should be seen in the context of accusations that Rwanda has plotted to kill dissidents abroad.

Ways To Get Rid of Kagame

How to proceed for revolution in Rwanda:
  1. The people should overthrow the Rwandan dictator (often put in place by foreign agencies) and throw him, along with his henchmen and family, out of the country – e.g., the Shah of Iran, Marcos of Philippines.Compaore of Burkina Faso
  2. Rwandans organize a violent revolution and have the dictator killed – e.g., Ceaucescu in Romania.
  3. Foreign powers (till then maintaining the dictator) force the dictator to exile without armed intervention – e.g. Mátyás Rákosi of Hungary was exiled by the Soviets to Kirgizia in 1970 to “seek medical attention”.
  4. Foreign powers march in and remove the dictator (whom they either instated or helped earlier) – e.g. Saddam Hussein of Iraq or Manuel Noriega of Panama.
  5. The dictator kills himself in an act of desperation – e.g., Hitler in 1945.
  6. The dictator is assassinated by people near him – e.g., Julius Caesar of Rome in 44 AD was stabbed by 60-70 people (only one wound was fatal though).
  7. Organise strikes and unrest to paralyze the country and convince even the army not to support the dictaor – e.g., Jorge Ubico y Castañeda was ousted in Guatemala in 1944 and Guatemala became democratic, Recedntly in Burkina Faso with the dictator Blaise Compaoré.

KAGAME VS JUSTICE

Monday, May 28, 2012











Rwanda :



Les autorités engageaient de plus en plus souvent des poursuites contre des détracteurs des politiques gouvernementales. Le nombre de détentions illégales a augmenté. Bien que des projets de réforme législative aient été évoqués, la liberté d’expression restait soumise à des restrictions. Des membres de l’opposition politique et des journalistes arrêtés dans le contexte des élections de 2010 ont été injustement condamnés pour des motifs à caractère politique.

Contexte

En janvier, le bilan du Rwanda en matière de droits humains a été examiné dans le cadre de l’Examen périodique universel des Nations unies. Le gouvernement a accepté la majorité des recommandations formulées, y compris celles demandant une modification des lois existantes dans le but de protéger la liberté d’expression. Il a en revanche rejeté les recommandations concernant l’ouverture d’enquêtes sur les cas d’arrestation et de détention arbitraire, y compris les possibles disparitions forcées, alléguant que les arrestations illégales avaient été exceptionnelles et que les fonctionnaires responsables avaient été amenés à rendre compte de leurs actes.
Les problèmes de sécurité se sont aggravés en 2011, à la suite notamment d’attaques à la grenade survenues en 2010, de divisions au sein du Front patriotique rwandais (FPR, au pouvoir) et du mécontentement des sympathisants de Laurent Nkunda, ancien dirigeant du Congrès national pour la défense du peuple (CNDP).

Le gouvernement a coorganisé à Kigali, la capitale, une réunion visant à inciter d’autres pays d’Afrique à suivre l’exemple du Rwanda et à abolir la peine de mort.

Les donateurs continuaient de soutenir le gouvernement rwandais, au nom de son développement économique. En privé, certains se disaient toutefois inquiets des violations des droits humains perpétrées dans le pays.

Liberté d’expression

Des modifications de la législation étaient en suspens, mais des restrictions sévères pesaient toujours sur la liberté d’expression. Un nombre croissant de personnes ont été condamnées pour des actes considérés comme des menaces à la sûreté nationale, tels que la critique à l’égard des politiques gouvernementales.

Lois réprimant l’« idéologie du génocide » et le « sectarisme »

Bien qu’il ait promis de réviser la loi sur l’« idéologie du génocide », le gouvernement a continué de recourir à des dispositions législatives générales et rédigées en termes vagues qui réprimaient l’« idéologie du génocide » et le « sectarisme » (plus connu sous le terme de « divisionnisme »). Ces textes interdisent les discours de haine mais érigent aussi en infraction pénale toute critique du gouvernement. L’année s’est achevée sans que les autorités aient examiné un quelconque projet de modification de la loi réprimant l’« idéologie du génocide ». Le gouvernement s’était pourtant engagé, pour la première fois en avril 2010, à procéder à la révision des dispositions existantes.

  • Bernard Ntaganda, président du Parti social idéal (PS-Imberakuri), a été condamné à quatre ans d’emprisonnement en février. Il a été reconnu coupable de « divisionnisme » – pour des discours publics prononcés à l’approche des élections de 2010, dans lesquels il dénonçait les politiques gouvernementales –, d’atteinte à la sûreté de l’État et de tentative d’organisation d’une « manifestation non autorisée ». Les poursuites engagées contre Bernard Ntaganda pour atteinte à la sûreté de l’État et « divisionnisme » s’appuyaient uniquement sur ses discours critiquant certaines actions du gouvernement.
  • Le procès de Victoire Ingabire, présidente des Forces démocratiques unifiées (FDU-Inkingi), s’est ouvert en septembre. Elle était inculpée d’actes de terrorisme, de formation d’un groupe armé, d’« idéologie du génocide », de « sectarisme » et de propagation délibérée de rumeurs dans le but de monter l’opinion publique contre le pouvoir en place. Les accusations relatives à l’« idéologie du génocide » se fondaient notamment sur le fait qu’elle avait publiquement demandé l’ouverture de poursuites pénales pour les crimes de guerre commis par le FPR (voir Justice). Les violations des normes en matière d’équité des procès – notamment le fait que l’accusation ait été autorisée à présenter des éléments de preuve antérieurs aux lois au titre desquelles Victoire Ingabire était inculpée – soulevaient des inquiétudes.

    Journalistes
Plusieurs lois visant à accroître la liberté des médias étaient en instance devant le Parlement à la fin de l’année. Les organisations de défense des droits humains espéraient que les projets de modification de la loi relative aux médias et de la loi sur le Haut Conseil des médias, ainsi que le projet de loi sur l’accès à l’information, permettraient de diminuer l’emprise de l’État sur les médias. La diffamation devait toutefois demeurer une infraction pénale. Au cours des années précédentes, les autorités avaient recouru à la loi contre la diffamation pour réduire au silence des journalistes et fermer des médias.

Des organes de presse privés qui avaient été fermés en 2010 n’avaient toujours pas repris leurs activités ; leurs rédacteurs en chef, de même que d’autres journalistes indépendants, vivaient toujours en exil.


Agnès Nkusi Uwimana, rédactrice en chef du journal populaire indépendant de langue kinyarwanda Umurabyo, et sa rédactrice en chef adjointe, Saidati Mukakibibi, ont été condamnées le 5 février respectivement à 17 et sept ans d’emprisonnement pour des articles d’opinion publiés en 2010 durant la période préélectorale. Agnès Nkusi Uwimana a été déclarée coupable de menace à la sûreté de l’État, d’« idéologie du génocide », de « divisionnisme » et de diffamation, et Saidati Mukakibibi de menace à la sûreté de l’État. L’examen de leur appel a été reporté à 2012.
  • Malgré les lacunes de l’enquête initiale, le ministère public n’a pas rouvert d’information sur l’assassinat, en juin 2010, du journaliste Jean-Léonard Rugambage. En septembre, l’un des deux individus reconnus coupables du meurtre a été acquitté en appel et l’autre a vu sa peine de réclusion à perpétuité commuée en 10 années d’emprisonnement.

    Défenseurs des droits humains
Comme les années précédentes, des défenseurs des droits humains ont été victimes de manœuvres d’intimidation et de harcèlement – arrestations, menaces, tracasseries administratives et accusations d’abus d’ordre financier.

Joseph Sanane et Epimack Kwokwo, président et secrétaire exécutif par intérim de la Ligue des droits de la personne dans la région des Grands Lacs (LDGL), ont été arrêtés le 19 août. Ils étaient accusés d’avoir aidé le secrétaire exécutif de l’organisation, Pascal Nyilibakwe, à quitter le Rwanda en 2010. Ce dernier avait reçu des menaces à maintes reprises. Epimack Kwokwo a été libéré après plusieurs heures de détention et Joseph Sanane le lendemain de son arrestation.
Liberté d’association

Des responsables de l’opposition politique ont été condamnés pour tentative d’organisation de manifestations « non autorisées » ou de participation à celles-ci. De simples membres de partis d’opposition ont également été interpellés. Les autorités rwandaises ont menacé et intimidé des responsables politiques de l’opposition présents dans des pays voisins, en Afrique du Sud et dans des États européens.

  • La police britannique a informé en mai deux militants rwandais de l’opposition de menaces imminentes pesant sur leur vie et émanant du gouvernement rwandais.
Prisonniers d’opinion

L’ancien ministre Charles Ntakirutinka demeurait incarcéré à la prison centrale de Kigali, où il purgeait une peine de dix années d’emprisonnement. À l’issue d’un procès inique, il avait été reconnu coupable d’incitation à la désobéissance civile et d’association de malfaiteurs.

Justice

Poursuivant ses efforts pour obtenir le transfert ou l’extradition des personnes soupçonnées de génocide, le gouvernement a modifié la législation de façon à ce que les individus déclarés coupables ne soient pas condamnés à la peine de réclusion criminelle à perpétuité. Introduite récemment dans la législation, cette peine assortie de modalités spéciales peut constituer pour les détenus un maintien prolongé à l’isolement quand leurs proches ne peuvent ou ne souhaitent pas leur rendre visite. Les prisonniers concernés n’ont le droit de communiquer avec un avocat qu’en présence d’un gardien, ce qui constitue une atteinte aux droits de la défense durant la procédure d’appel. Cette nouvelle peine n’était pas mise en application en raison de l’absence de cellules individuelles.

Aucune ONG indépendante n’a été autorisée à accéder aux établissements pénitentiaires pour surveiller les conditions carcérales ou interroger des détenus en privé, malgré les demandes formulées en ce sens.

Après plusieurs reports, les procès pour génocide devant les tribunaux gacaca – qui ne respectaient pas les normes internationales en matière d’équité des procès – devaient s’achever à la fin de 2011. Quelques demandes de révision étaient encore en attente à la fin de l’année. Aucun projet de loi établissant les procédures d’enquête et de poursuite devant les juridictions ordinaires pour les futures accusations de participation au génocide de 1994 n’avait encore été présenté au Parlement.

Détentions illégales et disparitions forcées

De très nombreux jeunes gens arrêtés en 2010 et 2011 ont été détenus dans des centres militaires, notamment au camp Kami, ainsi que dans des centres illégaux, dont ceux de « Chez Gacinya » et de Gikondo, souvent durant plusieurs mois. Ils ont été privés de soins médicaux, n’ont pas été autorisés à contacter un avocat et n’ont pas pu contester devant les tribunaux les décisions les concernant. La police n’a pas donné d’informations aux proches de certains d’entre eux qui s’étaient officiellement enquis de leur sort. Certains détenus ont été transférés vers des prisons ordinaires après avoir été inculpés de menace à la sûreté de l’État. D’autres ont été remis en liberté à la condition qu’ils gardent le silence.

Les autorités n’ont pas fourni d’informations sur la disparition forcée de Robert Ndengeye Urayeneza. On pense que cet homme, vu pour la dernière fois en mars 2010, est détenu par l’armée rwandaise.

Justice internationale


Tribunal pénal international pour le Rwanda

Le Tribunal pénal international pour le Rwanda (TPIR) a rendu de nombreux jugements au cours de l’année. Neuf accusés demeuraient toutefois en fuite. Le mandat du TPIR devait s’achever en 2012.

En décembre, la Chambre d’appel du TPIR a confirmé le renvoi au Rwanda de l’affaire Jean Uwinkindi. Dans sa décision, elle mentionnait l’intention exprimée par le Rwanda d’adopter une loi autorisant des juges étrangers à siéger dans les affaires transférées. Il s’agirait du premier accusé dans une affaire de génocide à être renvoyé ou extradé vers le Rwanda pour y être jugé.

Compétence universelle

Des personnes soupçonnées de participation au génocide ont été poursuivies en justice en Allemagne, en Espagne et en Finlande. L’Afrique du Sud ne s’était pas encore prononcée sur la demande d’extradition déposée par la France et l’Espagne à l’encontre de Kayumba Nyamwasa, un Rwandais soupçonné de crimes contre l’humanité au Rwanda qui a obtenu l’asile en Afrique du Sud en 2010. La demande d’extradition présentée par le Rwanda a été rejetée par les autorités sud-africaines.

  • Dans un arrêt rendu en octobre, la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme a considéré que Sylvère Ahorugeze pouvait être extradé par la Suède vers le Rwanda. Cet homme avait été remis en liberté par les autorités de Stockholm en raison de la durée de sa détention provisoire. L’incapacité à mettre en place de véritables garanties pour que Sylvère Ahorugeze soit effectivement jugé constituait un déni de justice pour les victimes du génocide rwandais.
  • La Norvège s’est prononcée en faveur de l’extradition de Charles Bandora. Un appel était en cours.
Impunité pour les crimes de guerre et les crimes contre l’humanité

Aucune investigation et aucune poursuite n’ont été engagées concernant les crimes de guerre et les crimes contre l’humanité qui auraient été commis par l’Armée patriotique rwandaise en 1994 au Rwanda, ni concernant les violations flagrantes des droits humains perpétrées par les forces armées rwandaises en République démocratique du Congo qui ont été recensées dans le rapport du projet Mapping établi par les Nations unies.
Réfugiés et demandeurs d’asile

Le Haut-Commissariat des Nations unies pour les réfugiés (HCR) a recommandé l’invocation au 31 décembre 2011 de la clause de cessation pour les réfugiés rwandais, ce qui signifie que ces derniers pourraient perdre leur statut. Dans un certain nombre de pays, les réfugiés rwandais n’avaient pas pu à la fin de l’année être entendus individuellement afin de faire valoir d’éventuels motifs personnels expliquant qu’ils continuent à craindre d’être persécutés. La clause devait être effective au 1er juillet 2012.

MAY 11, 2012


PRESIDENT PAUL KAGAME IS TO BLAME FOR THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN EASTERN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO(DRC)

On behalf of the Rwanda National Congress (RNC), let me take this opportunity to bring to your kind attention concerns regarding the deepening humanitarian and security crisis in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It has been reported by the United Nations Office for Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs that there have more than 300,000 internally displaced people in North and South Kivu in the first quarter of this year alone. In the last few days, escalation of fighting has led to more internally displaced people, and refugees fleeing to Rwanda and Uganda. Many millions, including women and children have died, displaced and raped in eastern DRC since 1994.
In the May 3, 2012, statement the U.N. Security Council expressed concerns over recent attacks by armed groups in eastern DRC, in particular the former elements of CNDP under General Bosco Ntaganda, against the Congolese armed forces and called for immediate cessation of the rebellion. The U.N. Security Council statement further called for “ all crimes, including crimes against women and children, to be expeditiously investigated and the need for all the perpetrators of those crimes, in particular Ntaganda, to be brought to justice.”
THE CONTEXT

You might recall that the 1990- 1994 war and genocide in Rwanda resulted in millions of Rwandan refugees in the region, mostly in DRC, including thousands of Rwanda government military forces (FAR) and militia (interahamwe). The Government of Rwanda attacked the refugee camps in Congo in October, 1996 under the pretext of a ‘Abanyamurenge rebellion’. The war culminated in the overthrow of President Mobutu in May, 1997.
Thereafter, Laurent Desire Kabila succeeded Mobutu as President with the help of the Rwandan Armed forces. The alliance between Paul Kagame and Laurent Desire Kabila could not last more than two years and both countries were again involved in war in August 1998.

First, then Vice President Paul Kagame expected to control the new government of DRC and believed President Kabila would always solicit political direction from Rwanda. To ensure this, Rwanda deployed LTC James Kabarebe (now General) as Chief of Staff of the Congolese Army to keep President Kabila on the leash. This was detested by Kabila and his followers which resulted in friction and conflict in the Congolese Army.
Second, then Vice President Kagame demanded mineral concessions to be granted to Rwanda as compensation for expenses of the war and as a personal reward for installing President Kabila in power. This did not happen and Paul Kagame hatched a plan to remove President Kabila through a coup d’etat, which failed. President Kabila retaliated by expelling LTC James Kabarebe together with all Rwandan troops in DRC, precipitating the all-out war into which several African countries, notably Zimbabwe and Angola, were sucked. President Laurent Kabila was assassinated, and succeeded by his son, Joseph Kabila.

Third, a reason had to be found to begin a war and the EX-FAR was a perfect excuse, although at the same time the war was waged under the pretext of a mutiny by the Congolese army, with President Kabila being accused of allying himself with the EX-FAR. At first, Rwanda concealed its involvement. As the conflict intensified and drew many African countries, Rwanda’s deceptions had reached a limit and had to create a proxy politico-military organization. Thus was RCD born. The war ended in a stalemate, and a negotiated political settlement led to the establishment of a broad-based government that included all fighting forces. However, against all advice, Paul Kagame dissuaded some political and military elements of the RCD from joining the new broad-based government in Kinshasa. Out of these former RCD elements, a new proxy force, CNDP, was established under the leadership of General Laurent Nkunda.

CNDP, GENERAL LAURENT NKUNDA AND GENERAL BOSCO NTAGANDA

The justification for creation of the CNDP was to fight the FDLR and “protect the Tutsi community in Kivu.” However, the true objective was to keep the government of DRC weak through endless war. Like many millions of Congolose who have died due to the unending conflict and its consenquences, the Congolese Tutsi have been both tools and victims of President Kagame’s policies and actions in DRC. Furthermore, the proxy forces facilitated resource plunder by President Kagame’s ruling RPF companies and associates. At a personal level, President Paul Kagame became the focal diplomatic contact about the security situation in DRC. While he precipitated this horrendous humanitarian situation and should have been held to account, he has on the contrary been viewed in many capitals as the solution and indispensable interlocutor for the realization of security in DRC and the Great Lakes region.

In 2009, Gen Laurent Nkunda was “arrested” (President Kagame said on BBC that he is his guest) and was replaced by Gen Bosco Ntaganda by the government of Rwanda. Gen Bosco Ntaganda was integrated in CNDP after the war in Ituri in DRC and was helped by the government of Rwanda to depose Gen Nkunda.



It is well known that Gen Bosco Ntaganda is a Rwandese from Masisi, and should have had no interest in the “Ituri wars” between the Balendu and Bahema in Kivu. The Ugandan rebels of ADF were allegedly operating among the Ituri tribes and Rwanda sought to exploit the situation by arming Thomas Lubanga and seconded Bosco Ntaganda as his military Commander. Thomas Lubanga has been convicted by the ICC and Bosco Ntaganda is being hunted by the ICC. It is only fair that President Paul Kagame on whose behest these two individuals committed war crimes should be part of the indictment.

EMERGING SCENARIOS

After the conviction of Thomas Lubanga in the ICC, international pressure has mounted on President Kabila to arrest Gen Ntaganda. For President Kabila, it is a perfect opportunity to dispense with an officer in his Army who takes orders from another country, Rwanda in this case. The problem however, is that President Kabila does not control the CNDP because, as Rwanda’s proxy force, they have never been fully integrated in the Congolese Army and he cannot transfer any of them from Kivu. The government of Rwanda would do whatever it takes to make sure that Gen Ntaganda is not arrested because of the information that implicates President Kagame he would divulge at the ICC.

Some of the likely scenarios include the following:

1. The government of Rwanda will arm and help Gen Ntaganda fight the Congolese government forces until President Kabila realizes that he will have to negotiate a peaceful settlement.


2. If international pressure continues for the arrest of Gen Ntaganda, the government of Rwanda will offer to assist ( already doing so), by sending its Special Forces or use elements within CNDP to kill Gen. Ntaganda to make sure he is not taken to the ICC.


3. As the war rages on and the international community needs assistance, President Kagame will, as usual, reposition himself as the regional leader and savior for resolving this stalemate, in the “interest of regional stability.” As political crisis looms large in Rwanda and the Kivus, he will use the opportunity to conceal and deny his own misdemeanors while dictating his own terms of any new arrangements.


4. Like in 2009, under the ‘Amani Leo’, this situation may provide a perfect opportunity for another deployment of Rwanda government forces into the DRC


5. A wild card triggers a worst-case scenario, in which full-fledged civil wars erupt in Rwanda ( as mounting domestic pressures lead to implosion) and DRC, with grave consequences for the whole fragile region, thus perpetuating the cycle of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

IMPLICATIONS

Due to President Paul Kagame’s policies in Rwanda and the DRC, the Tutsi community of DRC are frequently singled out and blamed to a larger extent by other tribes for atrocities in DRC since 1996. The Rwandan community in DRC (Hutu and Tutsi) in general has been drawn into a conflict among themselves and against all other tribes who view them as proxies of a foreign government. Since 1996, the proxy wars in DRC especially in both North and South Kivu have resulted in millions of deaths, displacement and refugees, which occasionally President Kagame deceptively justifies as “collateral damage” for hunting down FDLR, whose numbers have in any case diminished over the years.

The endless conflicts in DRC have resulted in uncontrolled proliferation of arms from the governments to militias over whom they have a lose control. Some of these militias have been involved in massive rape of women and deaths of children.
Most importantly, as we all have witnessed during the last two decades, crisis in any one country poses great risk to the whole Great Lakes region. Crisis in the Great Lakes region has before escalated to a “continental” war when several African countries intervened in the 1998-2002 Congo war. Already there are several millions who have died in this region due to genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, other gross abuses of human rights, and the consequences of humanitarian catastrophe. Clearly, the current escalating situation in the Great Lakes region has serious implications for international peace and security.


At the center of endless conflict and humanitarian crisis in DRC and the Great Lakes is lack of accountability and the impunity it fosters. For example, In the United Nations Human Rights Commission Mapping Report on DRC of October, 2010, the Government of Rwanda under President Kagame is implicated in war crimes, crimes against humanity, and even “possible acts of genocide.” The crimes have been investigated but the perpetrators are yet to be brought to account. Why would the U.N. Security Council seek accountability from Thomas Lubanga General Bosco Ntaganda alone, and fall silent on President Paul Kagame and his other accomplices, who have created the conditions and organization that sustain the crimes?
Furthermore, President Kagame seeks to draw attention away from his human rights abuses in Rwanda by diverting the international community and media to focus on DRC. Since 1994, the Rwandan armed forces have been kept at war both in DRC and recently in peace keeping missions. This facilitates President Kagame to blackmail and manipulate domestic and international opinion that the country is at war. Depicting himself as indispensable to Rwanda’s and regional security, he uses the pretext of war to close avenues for peaceful reform and to brand his critics as accomplices, terrorists or sympathizers of rebels.

RECOMMENDATIONS

The events unfolding in eastern DRC have the potential to trigger massive violence and humanitarian tragedy of catastrophic proportions. The greatest danger, recent history shows, is that the international community may be silent, indifferent, act in an unfair or timid fashion, or rather too late.

The international community must engage President Paul Kagame and other stakeholders candidly and forcefully to halt the current escalation and work towards sustainable peace and security. Since President Paul Kagame’s policies and actions in DRC are conditioned by his domestic requirements in Rwanda, the international community should insist that the government in Rwanda immediately and unconditional release all political prisoners, end persecution (including arbitrary arrests and detentions, torture, involuntary disappearances and extra-judicial killings) of government opponents and critics and their relatives, engage in comprehensive and unconditional dialogue with the opposition to resolve the political and security impasse engulfing Rwanda and the Great Lakes region, and stop proxy wars in eastern DRC. The international community should be even and act fairly by using international mechanisms to ensure that all those who have committed crimes, including President Kagame himself, are held accountable and brought to justice.

Since 1994, the world witnesses the horrifying reality : the Tutsi minority (14%) ethnic domination, the Tutsi minority ethnic rule, tyranny and corruption in Rwanda. The current government has been characterized by the total impunity of RPF criminals, the Tutsi economic monopoly, the Tutsi militaristic domination with an iron fist, and the brutal suppression of the rights of the majority of the Rwandan people (85% are Hutus), mass-arrests and mass-murder by the RPF criminal organization.

So long as justice and accountability for RPF past and current crimes are ignored and delayed, Peace and Stability will remain illusive and impossible in Rwanda=>As International]



Kigali, 12 May 2012
We are saddened by the death of Sadiki Mutabazi in Kigali hospital after setting himself alight in a protest against violence by security staff.

FDU-Inkingi is deeply saddened by the passing of Sadiki Mutabazi and takes this opportunity to express its sincere condolences to his family. He died of severe burns resulting from a self immolation after the regime security personnel confiscated his belongings and beat him publicly in Gisenyi (Rubavu District).

In our 08 May 2012 press release , we underlined how this young boy in a desperate move decided to terminate his life after this public humiliation. In unprecedented protest, he poured gasoline over his body and set himself ablaze like the public self immolation of Mohammed Bouazizi in Tunisia that triggered the Arab spring.
We call upon the government of Rwanda to hand over his remains and provide support for a honorable burial. The RPF-led government needs to inform the public about urgent measures taken if any to investigate and bring to book those involved in Sadiki Mutabazi ordeal and to subsequently sanction security hierarchy in the area.

As International centers its work on the twin concepts of freedom of self-determination and freedom from tyranny. These ideals include the belief that all human beings have the rights to speak freely, to associate with those of like mind, and to leave and enter their countries. Individuals in a free society must be accorded equal treatment and due process under law, and must have the opportunity to participate in the governments of their countries;
As International’s ideals likewise find expression in the conviction that all human beings have the right to be free from arbitrary detainment or exile and from interference and coercion in matters of conscience. ASI does not support nor condone violence.

Gén. D. Tauzin Demande Justice

Le Général Tauzian réclame la Justice pour la France et pour les Soldats français. Les Présidents Nicolas Sarkozy et François Hollande ne font que ridicuriser les soldats français qui payent de leurs vies pour la France. Plutôt que rendre hommage à la France et à l'armée française, ils n'ont fait que prendre partie pour l'ennemi de la France. Il l'explique dans le vidéo qui suit:
