As stated in Outreach programme Rwanda genocide and the United Nation, “Thousands died of waterborne disease and they continued to target civilian populations which caused deaths, injury and harm.” This shows that many people in Rwanda died from diseases and some died from being targeted during the genocide. This evidence is significant because it shows the population decrease in Rwanda and also shows the negative impact of genocide in Rwanda. This genocide impacted the history of Rwanda and also the people in
The Trans-Atlantic slave trade was responsible for the forced migration of between 12 to 15 million people. From Africa to the Western Hemisphere, the slave trade not only displaced millions of Africans to a life of exploitation, but also a painful death. Nobody knew the total number of people who died during slavery in Africa. The Atlantic slave trade Many died a slowly painful death during transportation and imprisonment, or in horrendous conditions during the Middle Passage. The voyage from Africa to the Americas was horrifying and painful for the slaves so many slaves considered suicide as an option.
Eventually the United States had a policy on Indian removal. The Native Americans were forced to travel to the east of Mississippi. This trip was brutal on them and it took a lot of lives. The Native Americans went through several wars and massacres in order to try and save their land which ended up taking a lot of Native Americans lives. Some of the following wars were Pequot War, King Phillips War, Pueblo Revolt, French and Indian War, Pontiac’s Conspiracy, Battle of Tippecanoe and First Seminole War.
There were an estimated 200,000 people who were killed between 1992-1995 in a genocide commited by the Serbs against the Muslims, and Croats in Bosnia. On top of this, another 2 million Bosnians were displaced from their homes and placed in dangerous environments. Three main groups fought each other within the country, Bosnian Muslims, Serbs, and also the Croats. This was a horrible and important genocide that killed thousands of people between 1992-1995. Like the Nazi’s cleansing Europe of it’s Jews, the Serbs aim was the ethnic cleansing of any Muslims or Croatian presence in Serbian territory.
The mass killing of 25 percent of a country's population is classified as a genocide;also a sin and immoral action of those upstanders and bystanders that witness, initiate or, participated in the Cambodian genocide. These people that initiated the Khmer rouge and set forth the Cambodian genocide are sinners, mass murders, and cruel. To kill a babies, the elderly, and enslave many children and adults. To starve and exterminate them as well. The Khmer rouge and all its members should be tried and sentenced for their sins against the innocent.
This position gave him the opportunity to fight hunger on a national, then international level. Hunger is a solvable, but seemingly impossible world problem. 2,500 people die of it every day, yet it does not receive the attention required to improve upon it. When Tony Hall found the topic, he realized just how important it was and made it his main focus. Hunger is usually a result of a greater economic or social problem, like the civil war in Ethiopia or the dictatorship in North Korea.
One of the most horrible events of the Japanese occupation of China was the Nanking Massacre. The Nanking Massacre also known as The Rape of Nanking, occurred over six weeks starting December 13, 1937. During this period, soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army murdered many Chinese civilians and disarmed combatants. An estimated of 50,000-300,000 were killed, and over 20,000 women were gang-raped in front of their families, these women were often killed immediately after being raped. The Japanese also forced families to commit incestous acts.
The social power women had in the short term, and the economy up until now. A passage of the Conquest, Conflict, and Commerce text from the Watson Institute reveals how the Congolese population fell by “nearly 50%” after colonization. Death transpired in any number of ways, ranging from being executed and “dying in battles of resistance”, to “overwork and famine”. Undoubtedly, the people of Congo suffered drastically from colonization. Though Congo did eventually gain independence in 1960, the effects of its occupancy can still be felt today.
He approved the Indian Removal Act, in which Jackson exiled the Cherokee, who had even begun to adopt the “white” way of life, forcing them to move from Georgia. Jackson single handedly caused the “Trail of Tears”, which is one of the darkest events to date in American history. According to Cherokee.org: An estimated 4,000 [people] died from hunger, exposure and disease. The journey became a cultural memory as the “trail where they cried” for the Cherokees and other removed tribes. Andrew Jackson also ended up firing more government officials than all of the previous presidents
The revolt lasted for two years and resulted in the deaths of 80,000-300,000 (“Facing the Past to Liberate the Future”). This uprising also caused a significant drop in population as a result of European brutality and well demonstrates the violence that African natives faced. While the uprising was unsuccessful, it “forced Kaiser Wilhelm's government in Berlin to institute reforms in their African colonies as they realized the potential cost of their brutality” and became an inspiration for later 20th Century freedom fighters who called for similar interethnic unity as they struggled against European colonial rule” (Beverton). The Maji-Maji and Herero uprisings had a hugely negative impact on African populations and feelings towards the imperialist nations that still remain an important part of Africa (and Germany’s) history
Many tribes were affected by this act but the major tribes affected are cherokee, chickasaw, creek,seminole,choctaw these tribes were most damaged as also the most civilized. They knew their own language and had many of their own invention to their way of life. When the Europeans came to native homelands they brought deadly diseases and that brought many deaths just about 3,000 Choctaw died and many more tribes suffered but in 18 38 the cherokee were forced out of their homeland and joined the march of tears. On there way over 4,000 were killed or died this brought native populations down 98 % of native americans died during the trial the government was trying to get as many tribes as they could to sign treaties. Chief black hawk leader of the fox and sauk tribes was a victim of the government 's “persuasive” tactics meaning they tortured and abused the natives to get them to sign treaties but some florida indians fought back for several years but the U.S. had power, weapons and numbers.
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.
Years of conflict between two of Rwanda’s main ethnic groups, the Hutus and the Tutsis, resulted in The Rwandan Genocide, claiming 800,000 lives. This conflict stemmed from Rwanda’s early colonial and postcolonial history. Two ethnic groups dominated Rwanda, a Belgian colony until 1962. The upper class herdsman and landowners, the Tutsis, were chosen by the Belgians to serve as an intermediary between the government and the people. As a result, the Tutsis became a privileged group, with education and economic advantages.
On October 24, 1929, also known as ‘Black Thursday’, one of the greatest economic and social crisis in the United States of America begun. On that day more than 12 and half million shares of stock were sold, which was triple the usual amount. Next, over the following 4 days, the stock market prices fell 23 percent. Afterwards, the Americans had to face suffering and obstacles for the next 10 years. In 1933, the unemployment had risen from 3 percent to 25 percent of nation’s workforce and those who were able to keep their jobs faced harsh reductions in wages.
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
