The powerful and wealthy nations who send foreign aid to Rwanda need to understand that they are supporting an unstable, unsustainable government because there is no space for people to speak freely and peacefully and engage in real democratic process in Rwanda. Shutting down political space risks the return of mass violence to Rwanda sooner or later. I have devoted my life to preventing its return.
On Nov. 13, 2018, police and other paramilitary personnel entered the neighborhood of Lasalin in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. What followed was a massacre of the civilian population.
“I know that the killers want me and other members of the opposition to be afraid and stop our democratic struggle. But Rwandan people need to be free in our country. Fear of being arrested again or being assassinated will never stop our struggle.”
If the world and international media ignores West Papua now, the Indonesian security services may turn it into a bloodbath.
Asked how Kagame fits all the money gained by plundering Congo’s immense resources into his budget, David Himbara, a former member of Kagame’s cabinet, replied, “DR Congo money does not go into the Rwandan economy. The loot goes into offshore accounts of Crystal Ventures Ltd and its owner, Kagame.”
I hope his life changes, because mine has already changed. How so? I don’t want him to experience what I’ve experienced.

We, the peoples of the Global South have the natural resources and power to humble the Empire. It is a well substantiated fact that if Europe and the US were denied access to our resources for two weeks, their economies would grind to a halt.
I want the government to show us who killed all these members of the opposition in Rwanda and what happened to those who have disappeared.
“As trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving global heating. New research estimates that a worldwide planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions that have been pumped into the atmosphere by human activities, a figure the scientists describe as ‘mind-blowing.’”
The Democratic National Press (DNP) had to find someone to blame besides the Democrats and their own thieving national committee, so we were subjected to the two-year, $30 million Russiagate investigation that finally ended with the grudging conclusion that there’s no evidence to indict Trump.
Assange put corporate states and their armies on notice that they can no longer operate in secret. And the US, with the help of its state-corporate press, put him on notice that they’re coming to get him and that anyone else publishing classified docs could be next.
On April 1, 2019, our team went to Lasalin and interviewed survivors and eye-witnesses of the November massacre.
