What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire deviant life, that there's something wrong with the story. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.
You take the blue pill, the story ends. Your browser closes and you believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland. And, I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. I offer only the truth, nothing more. I know. That's why it's going to work. The UN Tribunal tried high-level members of the government and armed forces, while Rwanda prosecuted lower-level leaders and local people.
Since the ICTR was established as an ad hoc international jurisdiction,  the ICTR was scheduled to close by the end of after it would complete trials by and appeals by or Initially, the U.
Security Council established the ICTR in with an original mandate of four years without a fixed deadline and set on addressing the crimes committed during the Rwandan genocide. With the announcement of its closing, Mashira - Various - Presence 009 (CDr), there was a concern over how residual issues would be handled, because "The nature of criminal judicial work [ Article 38 of the Constitution of Rwanda guarantees "the freedom of expression and freedom of access to information where it does not prejudice public order, good morals, the protection of the youth and children, the right of every citizen to honour and dignity and protection of personal and family privacy.
Under these exceptions, longtime Rwandan president, Paul Kagameasserted that any acknowledgment of the separate people was detrimental to the unification of post-Genocide Rwanda and has created numerous laws to prevent Rwandans from promoting a "genocide ideology" and "divisionism.
Article 34 of the Rwandan constitution states that "freedom of the press and freedom of information are recognized and guaranteed by the state"; however, the constitution does not in practice prevent media restrictions. Kagame proposed that these laws were necessary for retaining national unity and protecting against future genocide.
According to the Committee to Protect Journalists CPJthe government threatens journalists who investigate or criticize the government. The CPJ proposed that these threats and the possible jail sentences cause journalists to self censor, even beyond what would normally be censored by the government. Article 34, along with the bans on speech that includes genocide ideology and divisionism, has commonly been used as a method for revoking journalists licenses.
In response to the documentary, the Rwandan government shut down BBC in the local to BBC promoting a "revisionist" position on the genocide in a documentary. While before the genocide, Rwandan history textbooks would acknowledge and highlight differences between Tutsi and Hutu people, today, the only government approved Rwandan history textbook stresses the Rwandans as one people and virtually ignore the ethnic differences and pre-genocide conflicts.
Since taking office, Kagame has implemented information and media controls to prevent the spread of dissent, including threatening and imprisoning journalists and political opponents for breaking his rules or disrespecting his government and military. His election opponent, Victoire Ingabire Umuhozaserved 8 years of a year prison sentence for "conspiracy against the country through terrorism and war" and " genocide denial ".
After international backlash, this policy was never enacted. The pervasive use of rape as a weapon of war caused a spike in HIV infection, including babies born to mothers infected during rapes. Due to the wholesale slaughter of both men and women, many households were headed by widows or totally orphaned children.
Today, Rwanda has two public holidays which mourn the genocide. The national mourning period begins with Kwibuka Remembrancethe national commemoration, on 7 April and it concludes with Liberation Day on 4 July. The week following 7 April is an official week of mourning, known as Icyunamo.
As a result of the genocide, nations collaborated to establish the International Criminal Court in order to prosecute genocide, crimes against humanityand war crimes. The report on the living conditions of survivors conducted by the Ministry in charge of Social Affairs in Rwanda reported the following situation of survivors: .
There are a number of organizations representing and supporting these survivors of the genocide. Another firsthand account of the Rwandan genocide is offered by Dr.
Courtemanche's book Mashira - Various - Presence 009 (CDr) made into a movie, A Sunday in Kigali This same story is related in Rusesabagina's autobiography An Ordinary Man The independent documentary film Earth Made of Glass which addresses the personal and political costs of the genocide, focusing on Rwandan President Paul Kagame and genocide survivor Jean-Pierre Sagahutu, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
InAlison Des Forges wrote that eleven years after the genocide, films for popular audiences on the subject greatly increased the "widespread realization of the horror that had taken the lives of more than half a million Tutsi". Among songs, "Rwanda" by the punk-ska band Rancid from the album Rancid is about the Rwandan genocide.
So is the punk-ska band Rx Bandits ' song "In All Rwanda's Glory", on their album Progresswhich they say contains "overly political lyrics". Brooke Fraser wrote the song " Albertine " on her album Albertine about an eponymous orphan from the genocide whom Fraser met one time in Rwanda in Inthe Christian metalcore band Fit for a King explained that a song titled "Stacking Bodies", on their newest album, is about the Rwandan genocide.
Former journalist and United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power is interviewed about the Rwandan genocide in Watchers of the Skya documentary by Edet Belzberg about genocide throughout history and its eventual inclusion in international law. Juliane Okot Bitek's book of poetry, DaysUniversity of Alberta Press uses the Rwandan genocide as a framework within which to explore "the senseless loss of life and of innocence" as well as "her own family's experience of displacement under the regime of Idi Amin "  Juliane Okot Bitek is the daughter of Ugandan poet Okot p'Bitek.
These are members of the Hutu majority who risked their lives to shield and protect Tutsis. Inspired by the events of the genocide, international involvements and subsequent prosecution of war criminals, Hugo Blick wrote and directed the fictional television drama series Black Earth Rising. The Ugandan producer and director Richard Mulindwa's film 94 Terrorset during the genocide, depicts an unlikely friendship between a Hutu and a Tutsi, and their escape to Uganda across the River Kagera border.
The genocide is referenced repeatedly. It tells the story of how Kabuga evaded capture as a fugitive until his arrest on the 16th of May . Since the end of the genocide there have been frequent charges of revisionism. That word could be massacre or terror or another word, depending on the event. Stam of Dartmouth College argued that the anti-Tutsi genocide constituted only part of the slaughter of spring and summer ; that the RPF was "clearly responsible" for another major portion of the killings; that the victims were "fairly evenly distributed between Tutsi and Hutu"; that the majority of the dead were Hutu, rather than Tutsi; and that, "among other things, it appears that there simply weren't enough Tutsi in Rwanda at the time to account for all the reported deaths".
It aroused considerable controversy. Based on interviews with RPF defectors and top-secret documents that were leaked from the ICTR, Rever argued that a second genocide against Hutus had in fact been committed by the RPF in as well as in the following years. Under the Rwandan constitution, "revisionism, negationism and trivialisation of genocide" are criminal offences.
According to Amnesty International, of the individuals convicted of "genocide revisionism and other related crimes" infive were sentenced to life imprisonment, five were sentenced to more than 20 years in jail, 99 were sentenced to 10—20 years in jail, received a custodial sentence of 5—10 years, and the remaining received jail terms of less than five years.
