Rwanda 1994

 


A latter-day holocaust indeed.
Between April and May 1994,
600,000 Tutsis were massacred
by the Huti malitia at an average
of 10,000 a day.

What did the so-called civilised
countries do to stop this travesty?
Absa-fucking-lutely-nothing.

Still I am searching a civilized country to your dilemma, this is really a massacre and nobody hears their deep cry.I have an old G-nib for your brave pen and please do not hesitate to inquire any time.
