Paul Rusesabagina's indictment of Rwandan dictator Paul Kagame. Commemorating Black History Month: Nina Simone, Musician and Civil Rights Activist Extraordinaire

Featured Guest(s):
Paul Rusesabagina

Paul Rusesabagina, the humanitarian Rwandan hotel manager who hid and protected 1,268 Hutu and Tutsi refugees during the Rwandan Genocide in April 7 - mid-July of 1994, author of An Ordinary Man: An Autobiography

Paul Ruseabagina describes Rwanda's President Kagame as a brutal dictator who has created human rights abuses all over the country. He does not want to lose his presidential immunity and face international indictments against him, nor does he want to face a new president -- which might be why Kagame has indicated he might violate the Rwanda Constitution and run for another term (another fake election).

Ruseabagina emphatically states the the economic miracle performance picture that Kagame paints is false.

Kagame has total impunity to lie, forge more wars in the Congo, assassinate both former friends and foes who fled to other countries, imprison thousands, including Victoire Ingabire who has the courage to return to Rwanda in 2010 and run for president.


In commemoration of Black History Month, Phil Taylor plays Nina Simone's Mississippi Goddamn, an inspiring song Nina wrote in response to the 1963 assassination of Medgar Evers and the Birmingham church bombing that killed four young African-American girls.

Phil Taylor gives an interesting background of Simone--from her birth in February of 1933, to her parents discovery of her talent, to her first recital where she refused to perform if her parents were removed from the front row, to her studies at Julliard to her participation in the civil rights movement which she considered an historical "watershed" moment and to her death in 2003.

Taylor turns to the new film Selma and contrasts the political and humanitarian significance of Selma to the political anti-humanitarian film The American Sniper, about the life of real life sniper Chris Kyle.

Taylor points out that MLK was martyered by a sniper who deprived humanity of a great leader, while Chris Kyle was an American sniper in Iraq who deprived humanity of their civil liberties, human rights, culture and life. MLK represented life and hope.

RWANDA: Recent "Hearsay" statement by ICTR Prosecutor deeply troubling
Paul Rusesabagina



Paul Rusesabagina
Chicago, July 5, 2007
124 Avenue Baron Albert d'Huart
1950 Kraainem, Belgique

His Excellency Ban Ki-moon
UN Secretary General, ROOM 3800
United Nations Headquarters
New York, NW 10017

Dear Mr. Secretary-General:

On June 29, 2007, Le Monde newspaper reported that current ICTR chief prosecutor, Hassan Bubacar Jallow, has declared that criminal accusations against the RPF as detailed in a formal complaint I filed with the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) last November "amount to hearsay and are of no value in our work". If true, this statement is very bad news and certainly very deeply troublin...

Hero of Hotel Rwanda Calls Kagame a War Criminal.

Letter protests Kagame visit to England:

Brussels, December 2, 2006

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of England
Buckingham Palace
London, England SW1A 1AA

Your Majesty the Queen of England,

I would like to start this important letter with an open heart confession: in the wake of the staggering events of the last 2 weeks regarding the 1994 Rwandan tragedy, it would be a crime against civilization, England and all of humanity if I kept silent after learning that Rwandan President Paul Kagame was planning a trip to London from December 3 to December 6...

Hotel Rwanda: Setting the Record Straight
Amadou Deme

A small convoy of refugees is confronted by a murderous mob at a roadblock in the widely praised film Hotel Rwanda. The UN troops protecting the convoy, led by a bold white commander, brandish their weapons. After some scuffling, threats and a few shots being fired, the refugee trucks are turned around and the passengers safely returned to the Hotel Rwanda. The hero upon whom the film is based has now written a book, An Ordinary Man, in which he describes that terrible incident in much the same way as the film.

But in fact the crisis did not happen as depicted in the film and book. And that troubles me because I was one of the UN soldiers with the convoy. Mr. Rusesabagina, as he acknowledges, was not there, though his wife and children were among the refugees.

Carving Sudan: Hollywood's helping hand
T-R

"Bush Meets With 'Hotel Rwanda' Manager Paul Rusesabagina...Rusesabagina wants to work with the President" (AP, Feb 17, 2005)

Agit-prop arrives in Sudan. ABC news on Feb. 9 ran a special report from actor Don Cheadle on the humanitarian crisis in Darfur, Sudan (we mention Sudan because the Western media is already treating Darfur like it is a separate country). And Cheadle, who has won acclaim as the non-genocidal Hutu in the film Hotel Rwanda, found a refugee who had the following solutions to her country's problems. She told Cheadle: "What we need from the United States is to take this government out of Sudan...to replace the government." As if to give wings to her wishes Cheadle later quotes a U.S. Air Force Major General, Scott Gration, apparently along on the sam...
