Globalization is a massive thing that affects every person on the planet in one way or another. This source raises the argument that globalization is a disease that harms people in more ways then it helps and needs to be stopped before it wipes out the human race. This raises a good point is some ways because globalization does harm humans in many way such as losing jobs due to outsourcing and the people who get the outsourced jobs are put into horrible working conditions and underpaid without benefits. But it also helps in some ways with trade and communication strengthening the relations of countries. I do agree with the source that globalization harms many people but not quite to the extent that the author goes to, I think that we should …show more content…
The genocide was an after affect of the scramble for Africa by European countries who help no regard for the people who already lived their. In the scramble for Africa many European countries raced to make claims on land in Africa that was already lived on by natives, they mistreated the natives and killed and enslaved many of them. This was prevalent in Rwanda when the belgians imperialized the land. The belgians sent the Hutus who were the majority of the population into slavery and lead to mass deaths of their people. But they lead the land through another ethnic group the tutsis who made up about 15% of the population compared to the 85% population of Hutus. This made large divides between the two cultures and later many civil conflicts between the groups. In 1994 when the president 's plane was shot down the government and Hutu militants blamed the Tutsis, radio broadcasts across the country encourages Hutus to take revenge and kill the Tutsis, in the end an estimated 800000 to 1 million people died. The globalization of Belgians colony and the scramble for africa through that part of the world into a blood conflict of cultures and terrorist/militant groups that still rages on …show more content…
They might say that trade allows you to have fruit and vegetables in the dead of winter, but they don 't stop to think about the human cost of having that food. They don 't think about the people being worked to death on plantains growing the food every day of their lives. They may be happy that globalization has made their country rich and that it keeps getting richer, but they don 't consider the developing countries how have people dieing of starvation everyday while they have too much food to eat but it is never reported by the media an aspect of globalization because isn 't an interesting enough story. But overall globalization isn 't a totally bad thing it just has some issues it has proved aid to countries when they need it and spread cures to diseases that killed many people. It is also leading to a global community that is uniting more countries in peace. Globalization has its bad sides but is not all bad, it has lead to a greater trade network between countries and has saved lives by spreading information, medicine, clean water and food. But it also has its major down sides like outsourcing resulting in lower prices for goods but lost jobs for developed countries and poor paying, miserable jobs for developing countries. So, overall i think that globalization is good in some ways but In the past and present it has affected many people
They were killed if they were an adult or a child. We also see that women were brutally raped by Hutu guards and they further killed by them. This shows the sick viciousness of the genocide and the attitude towards all the Tutsis. Similarly Source A shows us how the Rwandan Tutsis that were trying to outrun the Hutu Extremists and survive the genocide had to keep moving during the day. It tells us that any little aspect that went wrong could be the end of your life.
Globalization in the past 80 years has connected our world exceptionally well compared to the years before. Just under 80 years ago, when World War II ended, people saw an opportunity to grow together and learn from past mistakes. Globalization has brought the world together which has caused poverty rates to go down, work systems to become stronger leading to more accessibility, and overall life expectancy to increase. Globalization has forever changed the ways of the world and will continue to benefit people by bringing us together to become one substantial world. Globalization has benefited our world involving the decrease in poverty rates.
Over the course of 3 months in 1994, around 1 million citizens, mostly Tutsis and moderate Hutus opposed to genocide, were brutally murdered by the more dominant Rwandan Tribe, The Hutus. There were two tribes in Rwanda: Hutus and
There was a huge power struggle going on between the Hutu’s and the Tutsi’s. Source B shows how after the long running rule of the Tutsi’s, 1959 came around with the death of the last Tutsi king of this Monarch, resulting in riots and revolts from the Hutu people, killing hundreds of Tutsi people all in order to gain change and gain power. In the 1960’s Rwanda gained its independence and was soon ruled by a Hutu government in 1961. This, with reason, left the Tutsi people feeling very betrayed and angry at the fact that their beloved power had been ripped from them. Therefore, immensely increasing the tension between these groups resulting in further dissatisfaction coming from both groups and a feeling of mutual hate
The country was taken over by Belgium in 1916 after first being colonized by the Germans from 1894-1916. The Belgium used a “divide-to-rule” strategy to keep control where the minority Tutsi, which formed 14% of the population, were given superior treatment even though the Hutus, that composed 85% of the population, were not considered an actual separate ethnic group. Belgian colonists classified the Tutsi as generally taller, thinner, and more “European” in their appearance than the shorter and heftier Hutus. The Belgians decided the Tutsi were natural leaders due to the dominance their looks portrayed in their opinion. Consequently, public services and education were prioritised for the Tutsis while the majority of Hutus were farmers and unskilled labourers.
Those Hutus that didn’t support the genocide were also killed. The horrific events that the Hutus forced upon the Tutsi caused for extreme loss of self worth. The organization of the mass murders of the Tutsi happened rapidly. “On April 6, 1994 Hutu extremists began the systematic massacre of Rwanda’s minority Tutsi population”.
The Rwandan genocide was a mass murder of thousands of Tutsi people by the Hutu people, they were viciously killed and scared out of their country, partly due to the rumor that a Tutsi man ordered the death of the Rwandan President. To begin, from April to July 1994, members of the Hutu ethnic group in the East-Central African nation murdered 800,000 men, women, and children from the Tutsi ethnic group. During this period Hutu civilians were forced by military soldier and police officers to kill their neighbors, friends, and family (“10 facts About the Rwandan Genocide-Borgen”). Radio stations encouraged ordinary civilians to take part in the killings (“10 facts About the Rwandan Genocide-Borgen”).
Globalization has had an impact on just about everywhere in the world, whether it be positive or negative. There have been many benefits and good things that have come out of this international movement. We have more goods, we are more connected, things are easier to do, goods are cheaper, and life values and conditions have improved, but what about the people who don't have access to these benefits? What about the people we don't talk about, the ones who make those cheap goods? For some, many negatives have come out of globalization, like decreased living conditions and isolation, even if in our eyes it seems all good and like we couldn't live without it.
Globalization brought many multinational corporations to trade in different countries. That is believe to boost economy and benefit everyone. But the problem is that companies only look at their own profit, they cared more about maximize profit rather development. No health protection and labor rights were guaranteed to maquiladora workers and they were exploited. When globalization made Mexican farmers to flee to the U.S, the life of Mexican women was extremely difficult.
The genocide took place in Rwanda. Rwanda is a country located in Eastern/ Central Africa. Rwanda is the 150th largest country in the world with a total area of 26,338 square kilometers. It also shares borders with many other countries such as Burundi Tanzania, Uganda and Democratic Republic Of The Congo.
The First genocide of the 20th century was one of many outcomes of colonialism and imperialism in Africa. The mass genocide occurred/begun in 1904, and ended in 1909 as a result of many uprisings and rebellions against the German powers, who later set up concentration camps to imprison the Herero peoples, and later on to imprison the Naama people, as they had caused an uprising after the initial capture and enslavement of the Herero people who had fallen under German power. During this time there were innumerable massacres committed by the Germans as a way to “Ethnically Cleanse” the area. These massacres took place in modern day Namibia, which was formally a German colony that had been colonized during the Scramble for Africa. In these camps, around 65,000 Herero people and 10,500 Nama were killed.
The Tutsi sought protection in churches, in homes, in fields, they ran and hid anywhere that they could. However, the Hutu showed no mercy and often burned down whole buildings if they knew even just one Tutsi was hiding there. Both the Hutu and the Tutsi sought to murder each other and
Rwanda is a nation built on three major ethnic groups and continuous ethnic tension over the course of history. The main cause of the tension was the strained relationship between the Hutus and the Tutsis, the two major ethnic groups of Rwanda. The hostility between the two groups became strong around the beginning of World War I. The Belgians ruled Rwanda and they preferred the Tutsi minority, causing ethnic tension between the Hutus and the Tutsis from the start. The Hutus took action and led several attacks on the Tutsis, trying to drive a large percentage of the Tutsi population into exile.
For many years following, the Hutu were able to keep their power through violence and coercion (Longman, 2009). Their most widely used tactic to maintain power was deflection of dissatisfaction onto the Tutsi (Longman, 1995). It was extremely easy for the Hutu to accomplish this, as there were no Tutsi people in important communal positions (Longman, 1995). Additionally, no Hutu had forgotten the past exploitation of their people at the hands of the Tutsi (Longman, 1995). This normalization of violence and hatred to maintain control set a precedent for the genocide of the Tutsi in 1994.
