Pentagon Human Rights Auxiliary pushes ICC to indict Burundi

September 22, 2017

In October 2016, the tiny East African nation of Burundi made history by raising an independent head against U.S. empire.

Nkurunziza, who was elected by Burundi’s Parliament in 2005, claims that the Burundian Constitution gives him the right to run for election twice by universal suffrage.
