En #Afrique centrale actuellement où la population de #Kigali a été confinée jq au 26 juillet, qqs réflexions et témoignages en vis à vis de la situation en France et les contrastes saisissants des situations. Un décalage terrible qui interroge sur ce que nous devenons.
#thread
En #France le débat fait rage entre obligation vaccinale, passe sanitaire et des actes de violence sont commis contre des centres de vaccination. Des propos indignes sont tenus concernant la vaccination... tandis qu'en #Afrique c'est l'urgence sanitaire... Allons voir...
Cette photo à #Kigali est une queue pour la vaccination. Hélas, il n'y a pas assez des vaccins. Le programme au #Rwanda est de vacciner 30% de la population en 2021 et 60% en 2022 !
Vous voyez le débat si décalé avec ve qui se passe en France ?
En attendant que se passe t il ?...

#Rwanda #UN #Kigali #TheHauge #lawsuit

Félicien Kabuga was on the run for 26 years. He is considered one of the suspected masterminds behind the genocide in Rwanda and was arrested in France on May 16, 2020. Now he has to answer before a UN court in The Hague.
According to today's first hearing, the well over 80-year-old businessman is accused of genocide as well as aiding and abetting it in a number of cases. Kabuga is said to have financed and equipped the Hutu militia Interahamwe,
which carried out the majority of the murders of at least 800,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutu in 1994, and the accused directly for the radio and TV broadcaster RTLM, which was involved in the genocide and his public calls for massacres of the Tutsi minority were responsible.

The #DefundThePolice campaign is a precursor. We forgot the US signed up to the #UN #Kigali Principles. UN police troops can intervene in the US during armed conflicts. An EO by #Obama supporting the principles and a bill HR 1111 that seems as an early framework for it See thread
"...today’s U.N. peacekeepers have the clear authority to safeguard the innocent -- but it is still applied unevenly. That’s why the principles and best practices for civilian protection laid out in #Kigali are so important. ..." B. #Obama 28/09/2015

[thread] 1 million people were murdered in just 100 days during the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda 26 years ago. In 2016, I visited the Museum of Genocide and saw a part of #Kosovo and #Bosnia there too. This thread explains only my personal experience. #RememberWithRwanda
In 2016, I visited the Museum in #Kigali. I had no idea that will find #Kosovo and #Bosnia there. According to the witnesses and oral history interviews in the museum, most of the victims were killed in their own homes, many by their neighbors and fellow citizens using machetes.
Hutu gangs searched out victims hiding in churches and school buildings. The militarized gangs murdered victims with without mercy. Similarly in Balkans, paramilitary groups killed neighbours and led the army in the territories they knew.

Full house but I'm told some seats can be squeezed at the back if you RSVP here:

1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.

When I was in #Rwanda in 2017 to commemorate the #GenocideAgainstTheTutsi, I struggled with how best to honour the survivors who so generously shared their stories.Was it in retelling of unimaginable horrors they were subjected to?Or in celebrating survival,resilience & strength?
I shared stories of survival and courage. And I also took home in my heart resilience and joy. Remembering #Kigali Independent University student survivors #Kwibuka25

Today marks 25yrs since the genocide against the Tutsis in #Rwanda. The international community stood by as more than 800,000 people were slaughtered in 100 days.
In 2017, I was honoured to be in Rwanda for the commemoration. #RwandaGenocide
A thread I wrote in #Kigali in 2017 during the ceremonies to mark the anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsis. There are 250,000 Tutsi victims of the 1994 genocide buried at #Kigali Genocide Memorial #Rwanda #Kwibuka25
Kwibuka means Remembrance. It was an honour to join The Walk to Remember in #Kigali two years ago to remember the #GenocideAgainstTheTutsi. I send love and solidarity to friends in #Rwanda who are remembering today, the 25th anniversary. #Kwibuka25
