However, the discrimination of the Tutsi who still remained in Rwanda continued. In 1973, the abuse of the Tutsi began again, but this time the military came to join in. Hutu students at the Rwandan school, the National University in Butare were even used to scatter the mistreatment and abuse of the Tutsi in all schools in Rwanda. Major- General Juvenal Habyarimana used all this violence an excuse to take power and promised national unity. He got eliminated all political parties except his own.
The Rwanda Genocide not only impacted the world externally in causing damage to the country Rwanda, it also impacted the world; the reputation of the United Nations, the relationship between the two major groups of people in Rwanda and the entire perspective of the world for what is possible for humans to do. The United Nations name and reputation of peace are now stained because of
PROCESSING OF FINDINGS The death of president Habyarimana was not the central cause of the Rwandan genocide of 1994 as there many other factors which led to the genocide. The massacre was a result of a building of tensions between the Hutus and Tutsis, culminating in death of president Habyraimana in April 1994 and the subsequent genocide. Tensions began to build from the time that Rwanda was colonized by Belgium after World War One when the more "white looking" Rwandan people were labelled Tutsis and the others Hutus or Twa. During this time lasting from 1945 to 1959 the Hutus were discriminated against while the Tutsis received unfair privileges. The relationship between the two groups further worsened when the Hutu citizens of Burundi
In 1994 in Rwanda, approximately 800,000 men, women, and children were brutally massacred within 100 days. It is estimated that in four months, 1.75 million people, or a quarter of the country 's pre-war population, had either died or fled the country. In Rwanda, they were three ethnic groups formed by the Germans, the Hutu, the Tutsi, and the Twa. The Hutu made up 84 percent of the population, the Tutsi 14 percent, and the Twa only occupied 1 percent. My ethnic conflict is about the Rwanda Genocide that happened in April 1994 in Rwanda.
They usually occur as a result of a pile-up of misunderstandings and tension from the past (A). Therefore this could explain the fact that the Rwandan Genocide occurred many years after the tribal tension between the Hutu and Tutsi as well as colonialism. Before colonisers arrived in Rwanda, there was tribal tension between the two ethnic groups of Rwanda, the Hutu and the Tutsi. The Hutu made up the majority of the total population (85%). Although the Hutu and the Tutsi tribes were the dominant groups in Rwanda, there was also a smaller subdominant tribe called the Twa.
Have you ever been picked last in school or treated unfairly? I can tell you that the Tutsis people of Rwanda were. They were killed because they were thought to be different. In 1916 Belgium took over Rwanda from Germany, and they introduced ID cards naming the people by ethnicity. The Belgians thought the Tutsi were a better race, so they gave them better jobs and educational opportunities.
official describing the decision to not intervene in Rwanda. The U.S. official is quoted as saying that, “it was a foregone conclusion that military intervention was not on the table for discussion; it was automatically concluded that the United States would not take part in stopping the Rwandan genocide.” Which showed that, all deaths are not the same. The emotionally effect that the genocide caused on the people of Rwanda was massive. During a 100-day period, the people were tortured and terrorized as they saw those they love die and feared the loss of their own life. According to Tom Andrew, it is estimated that nearly 100,000 children were orphaned, abducted or abandoned.
There are some lacks of a judicial process in many countries including Thailand. Some prisoners were made the scapegoat for other people’s crimes. For example, in case of murder, Wuttichai Jaisamak was a wrongfully imprisoned person. As Rapirat reported on CNX News in 2014 that Wuttichai was charged with the murder of his girlfriend in 2005 and sentenced to get his all life in prison in 2011. After that, his family has asked the justice from police that there are some important concealed evidence in this case.
Shortly after, Hecuba started striving for revenge instead of justice for her children’s deaths. While Hecuba acts like equality is important she makes us think otherwise when she takes revenge on Polymestor. Throughout the tragedy, Hecuba takes unjustified actions to achieve justice such as murdering Polymestor’s two sons and blinding Polymestor. Hecuba’s decision to murder both of Polymestor’s sons was cruel and unjustified. Before Hecuba murdered Polymestor’s sons, she desired justice for the loss of her two children.
For example, the War Department repeatedly refused to bomb Nazi concentration camps or the railroads leading to them”(Berman). Roosevelt was under pressure, “The American public discovered the full extent of the Holocaust only when the Allied armies liberated the extermination and concentration camps at the end of World War II. And as historians struggled to understand what had happened, attention increasingly focused on the inadequate American response and what lay behind it. It remains today the subject of great debate”(US Holocaust Memorial
