Notes: Tropical Cyclone Tracey caused an impact in economy of about 950 million dollars in. Also, Tropical Cyclone Tracey lead to a loss in population which dropped the people in jobs decimating local businesses. Tropical Cyclone Tracey destroyed over 9000 homes. Most of the buildings were not built to cyclone regulations despite they were in the cyclone belt. This would have cost them lots of money to rebuild everything again and would have taken a long time to regrow the environment to how it was before.
Causes and Effects of the Rwandan Genocide Introduction Wikipedia defines Genocide as the “systematic destruction of all or a significant part of a racial, ethnic, religious or national group”. During one of humanity 's darkest periods, a tragedy that spanned one hundred short days, triggered in April 1994 and summarily ended in July of the same year witnessed the senseless eradication of approximately eight hundred thousand of the minority Tutsi tribe’s men, women and children, all citizens of Rwanda. Class distinction is cited as one of the main reasons for this genocide, the Hutu majority mistrusted the Tutsi minority who were seen as elite members of society. This distinction became more pronounced shortly after World War One when the Belgians assumed control of Rwanda. They were instrumental in growing the tensions between the Hutu and Tutsi tribes by rewarding Tutsis with Western education and denying Hutus any economical and political powers to the Hutus.
Introduction The Cambodian Genocide is one of the least known, yet most tragic and deadly genocides that happened in the 20th century. With the aim to restore the glory of pre-colonial times, which was to be achieved by purifying the Cambodian population, from 1975 to 1979 the Khmer Rouge regime killed between two and three million of the 8 million population (Kissi, 2004). The victims of the regime were the Vietnamese minority, which was completely swept out of the country by deportations or mass killing, the Cham Muslims and Buddhists, who were either completely transformed or massacred, and half of the half million large Chinese community, which was either worked to death or deported (Kissi, 2004). However, while the regime relentlessly
I hope you are having a pleasant afternoon ladies and gentlemen! Did you know that every year, per every population of 100,000 people about 1,400 black males and 900 white males commit suicide due to racism and discrimination? Did you know that only In Aurora, Colorado almost 400 black males committed suicide while roughly 200 white males died by the hand of racism? Did you know that due to discrimination amongst certain groups of people approximately 1,600 people commit suicide every single year? Getting discriminated for who you are is not a pretty walk in the park.
The act only gave the president the power to negotiate relocation with southern tribes; however, when many Native Americans resisted, the government turned to much more damaging and harmful methods of expulsion (Stewart 38). The Indian Removal Act was utterly inhumane because it was the cause of thousands of deaths and destroyed the lives of the natives that survived. To begin, because of the Indian Removal Act, Native Americans suffered a loss
10) Charity kidnappers Workers at French charity Zoé 's Ark were imprisoned and fined for the attempted kidnap of more than 100 children - all in the name of charity. Aiming to re-home children who had become orphaned in the Darfur war, Zoé 's Ark organized for hundreds of French families to pay the charity up to $6500, in order to adopt a war torn child. However, the charity workers were arrested before their plane full of children could leave for France. Investigations discovered that the majority of the children who Zoé 's Ark had sourced were not in fact orphans, nor were they from the conflict region. They had actually been taken from their parents by the charity under false pretenses.
An excellent example of this is the Rwandan genocide that happened in 1994. Although this massacre only went on for one hundred days, the Hutus managed to kill over eight hundred thousand Tutis. If the genocide went on for longer at that rate, over millions of people would have been killed in just a few years. In addition, another genocide happened just twenty years earlier in Cambodia. A communist group called the Khmer Rouge believed that Cambodia was ruled by the educated like doctors, lawyers as well as muslims.
To this date Cholera is still a global problem and causes about 130.000 deaths every year. Another major outbreak was the 1918 Spanish flu, which was extremely contagious. 500 million people all around the world were infected and 50 to 100 million of them were killed, which was about 3-5% of the world’s population. What really accelerated the spread of the disease was the fact that for a long time reports about the outbreak were withheld from the public due to military reasons connected with World War I. Interestingly, the only country where newspapers reported on the flu was Spain, which was neutral. Therefore, the impression was created that this country was the only one affected.
Abstract The Rwandan Genocide consisted of the slaughter of over eight hundred thousand African people from April of 1994 until June of the same year. Conflicts, primarily economic and cultural differences, between the Hutu and Tutsi peoples forced the country into genocide. An entire country was separated by ethnicity as neighbors, friends, and family turned against each other. After the capital of Kigali was captured, the government collapsed and the genocide finally came to an end. Since then President Paul Kagame continues to run the country with a strong authoritative hand, but victims and perpetrators are working and living peacefully and the economy is seeing rapid growth.
Every 10 seconds in America, an animal is abused. That means that every time an hour passes, a total of 360 animals have been tortured and sometimes, even killed. This number is way too high, and it needs to be brought down for good. In 2007 alone, a total of 1,880 cruelty cases were reported. Animal abuse happens way too often, yet not enough people do anything to help make a difference.
The Rwandan Genocide killed from 500,000 to 1,000,000 people, while the Armenian Genocide killed 800,000 to 180,000. Genocides, the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular group or nation, has affected various countries. Genocide not only brings a war but also problems like decreasing economic affairs and social problems. When genocide starts, society overlooks economic affairs like their agriculture since they focus on the war. In the case of Rwanda, once the genocide had begun many farmers fled or were killed.
The Rwandan genocide was a mass slaughter of the Tutsi population that lasted 100 days from the 7th of April to the 15th of July in 1994. Although the United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda existed at the time, Canada and the international community still failed to help Rwanda as a whole, as individual countries, and by not doing what they could to aid Roméo Dallaire. As an international community as a whole, there was far more that could have been done to help Rwanda through the United Nations and as individual countries. UNAMIR, or United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda, was made to keep peace in Rwanda and started a year before the genocide occurred. Notably, the UNAMIR and other UN sites helped aid the shelter the 15 000 Rwandan
Genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people especially those of a particular ethnic group, religion, race or nation. When we hear the word genocide usually the first thing that comes to mind is the Jewish Holocaust. Tragically so, 18 years prior to the first boycott of Jewish owned businesses in 1933, hundreds of thousands of Armenians were slaughtered in what is now known as the Armenian holocaust. It all started centuries ago when the Armenians became the very first nation to claim Christianity as it 's national religion, 100 years later the Armenians were overruled by the Turkish (a Religiously Muslim people) and fell victim to discrimination laws. By the 1800’s the empire that was then controlled by Sultan Abdul Hamid powers had declined but still took hold of Armenia.
The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 was of the most powerful natural disasters of the 1900’s in 11 states along the Mississippi River from Illinois to Louisiana. The flood lasted from the beginning of April, through May, June and July and finally ended in August. During the flood, the river got to be as wide as 80 miles in some places and submerged residential areas in as much as 30 feet of water. The flood affected multiple states and the country in countless ways. Some of the ways it changed the country was in a social and political way.
Srebrenica Genocide was one of the most hurtful and bloody highlights of Bosnian War. Srebrenica was a safe area which UN was responsible for protection against any kind of enemy attack. However, United Nations has failed to do what they were supposed to do in July, 1995. Ratko Mladić attacked Srebrenica with Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) and killed more than 8.000 people in Srebrenica Genocide. It was an attempt to achieve their ethnic cleansing campaign which has began in 1992.
