RWANDA COMMEMORATES THE 57TH ANNIVERSARY OF DEMOCRACY UNDER THE WORST DICTATORSHIP SINCE THE END OF THE MONARCHY.

[1]  After a Stalinist purge of dissenting comrades in arms, General Paul Kagame has established a de facto one-party system and bulldozed the amendment of the constitution to pave the way for a life presidency. One has the right to wonder whether the trend is reversible. The brave decision of Mrs. Ingabire Umuhoza Victoire and other democrats, including Ms. Diane Rwigara, Mr. Mushayidi Deogratias and other political prisoners languishing in prison to have challenged the system, does indicate that the trend is reversible and the movement for democratic change is unstoppable.

RWANDA : 8TH COMMEMORATION OF THE LAUNCH OF THE NON-VIOLENT MOVEMENT FOR DEMOCRACY BY Mrs VICTOIRE INGABIRE UMUHOZA

PRESS RELEASE

 

On the 16th of January 2010 Mrs Ingabire Umuhoza Victoire landed in Kigali to launch the nonviolent movement for democracy, peace and justice for all, the day that she gave a serious hammer blow to the corner stone of the regime fortress, i.e. fear. The fortress is shaking, the fear has shifted from democrats and peace makers to the regime, as reflected in erratic diplomatic behaviour and more repression. The regime has been totally exposed.

Rwanda:8TH COMMEMORATION OF THE LAUNCH OF THE NON-VIOLENT MOVEMENT FOR DEMOCRACY BY Mrs VICTOIRE INGABIRE UMUHOZA VICTOIRE.

PRESS RELEASE 

On the 16th of January 2010 Mrs Ingabire Umuhoza Victoire landed in Kigali to launch the nonviolent movement for democracy, peace and justice for all, the day that she gave a serious hammer blow to the corner stone of the regime fortress, i.e. fear. The fortress is shaking, the fear has shifted from democrats and peace makers to the regime, as reflected in erratic diplomatic behaviour and more repression. The regime has been totally exposed.

To her supporters she was a hero, to her critics she was naïve, to the ordinary minds it was too risky to take on President in his heyday of power. However, those close to her know well that she was sowing a mustard seed of democracy and genuine reconciliation, and was ready to pay the highest price for these values: prison of death. Hence the message to the Rwandan General Prosecutor, who wanted to convince her to apologise and abandon her opposition to the regime in return for her freedom: “the cause is bigger than me; whether you decide to keep in prison, release me or kill me the movement for democracy is unstoppable”.

FDU-INKINGI IS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT ALLEGED USE OF UNLAWFUL TACTICS BY MONUSCO TO FORCE RWANDAN REFUGEES TO RETURN HOME

PRESS RELEASE

 

The FDU-Inkingi have learnt with deep sorrow and concern about alleged cynical use of the threat of starvation to Rwandan refugees in Bauma transit camp to act to be delivered to the notoriously repressive regime of Rwanda. Information coming to us from Rwandan refugees living in this camp tell us that refugees in this camp have been receiving messages that they have to accept to be repatriated to Rwanda otherwise they would not get any more food supply. A copy of the form, written in Swahili, a language that the clear majority do not understand, seems to confirm this allegation.

Here is a layman translation of the forms on which only three options are given.
