The life of the Tutsis during the time turned for the worse after several years of fights that broke out between Rwanda and neighboring countries. After the Rwanda Genocide, the Hutus escaped to the Congo and never came back; the remaining Tutsis started from scraps of the old and had to build a society without the Hutus. The gap/relationship between the two major groups in Rwanda finally cracked and will most probably never be fixed. The actions illustrated in the genocide changed the minds of the young and wise throughout the world, scaring their memories for a period of
However there have already been similar reports done on the subject of residential schools such as the 1907 report done by, according to King, “Dr. Peter Bryce, the chief medical officer for Indian affairs in Canada…he called the health conditions at residential schools ‘a national crime’” (2015). The commission issued 94 recommendations to the parliament but, the prime minister answered with a thank you and an underwhelming response stating a long time has been spent on the report and there were many recommendations (King, 2015). Throughout the history of Canada the government has put aside the Aboriginal voices, contributing to the silencing and oppression of the Aboriginal population. The more Canada neglects to listen to Aboriginal voices, the more it contributes to the continuation of colonialism in Canada.
The Patrice Lumumba Assassination The Belgians have had control of the Congo from 1908 to 1960. They had never had the thought of allowing the people of the Congo to have self independence due to the fact they have low experience with organization and maintaining a ruling government over a country. The Belgians created a 30-year plan which would allow the Congo to prepare them for independance but African Nationalists expected it immediately. With very little education of how to run an election, Patrice Lumumba because prime minister. Lumumba made incorrect decisions and this caused problems between him and the Belgians.
The relief camps left them isolated from society and deep in the wilderness. When they rebelled for better treatment at the camps in cities or towns, the government used violence against them and turned down their requests. Even when the unpopular relief camps were shut down, the government did nothing to aid them which left many roaming the streets for work. R. B. Bennett created these camps to avoid communism, however he could have done so by less harsh treatments. Canada may have been facing a harsh time which is understandable however.
In Pope Francis disappoints Rohingya by Failing to Condemn Persecution the author states, “Francis is nearing the end of a four day trip to Myanmar, previously known as Burma, in which he has not publicly spoken about the persecuted Muslim minority, more than 620,000 of whom have fled to Bangladesh in recent months from what western leaders are calling ethnic cleansing”(Poopy Mcpherson). This shows that the western leaders are calling the genocide ethnic cleansing while the pope was there he failed to acknowledge the killing of the Muslim minority. Another entry from Pope Francis Disappoints Rohingya by Failing to Condemn Persecution the author states, “ ‘we think healing can come from anger and revenge,’ Francis said speaking of the many ‘wounded’ people in Myanmar: ‘Yet the way of revenge is not the way of Jesus,’ he said”( Poppy Mcpherson). These two entries show that the pope did not directly acknowledge what was happening in Myanmar so this shows that the pope does not give his full support to the
After Leopold’s death, an event took place which many historians consider ‘The Great Forgetting.’ Many Belgians in the 20th and 21st centuries remember Leopold II as the "Builder King" for his public works projects, and many remain highly unaware of his big role in the gruesome atrocities in the Congo. In the mid-1990s, the Colonial Museum for Central Africa made no mention of the horrible disasters that took place in the Congo Free State. On a popular resort, a bronze monument shows colonists as heroes protecting a Congolese woman and child with. These events never took place and Belgian colonialists actually mutilated and killed Congolese people, particularly women and children. In 2004, an activist group cut off the hand of a Congolese bronze figure, in protest against the atrocities committed in the
Although more groups of soldiers were sent in to Rwanda it was not fast enough. The UN and the OAU were both pushing for more needed equipment but supplies did not come quick enough (Rwanda,2006).”The aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide was very despicable. The effect that the genocide posed on the people of Rwanda is immeasurable.The people were tortured and terrorized as they saw those they love die and feared the loss of their own life. “It is estimated that nearly 100,000 children were orphaned, abducted or abandoned. Twenty-six percent of the Rwandan population still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder today (Enough
The country was made up of approximately 90% Hutus and 10% Tutsis. This tragedy could and should have been prevented but neither the United Nations nor the United States had the courage to help the 800 thousand innocent people who were viciously slaughtered whom were completely helpless. In 1916 the country of
However, visionary is nothing like reality due to the truth of what the FTP was transformed into. The program transpired originally to give thespians jobs and entertain/enlighten people’s day throughout the depression. Yet, the result who was debate on social and local issues, conflict with the government, and eventually the end of the program. In text 3, the author writes, “...barred future use of the WPA funds for theatre activities of any kind, bringing the Federal Theatre Project to an end virtually overnight, just four year after it was begun…” To break this down, there was so much dispute on the FTP that it dismantled only four years after the program’s start. Some parts really fulfilled their goals in the FTP like the 1,200 plays produced in the short history of the program.
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.
