Another African Convicted in Another Racist, Chauvinist Western Court

Ann Garrison Western propaganda about the Rwandan Genocide has been so triumphant that a Rwandan Hutu on trial in the West faces inevitable jury bias. “Teganya’s trial became a de facto trial for genocide crime.” Last week a jury in Boston Federal Court convicted Rwandan asylum seeker Jean Leonard Teganya of fraud and perjury for…

Rwandan Genocide: A US Senate Resolution in Praise of Blood

Ann Garrison Citing the Rwandan bloodbath, the US Senate is considering yet another measure justifying so-called “humanitarian” military intervention. “The Tutsi Rwandan Patriotic Front massacred hundreds of thousands of Rwandan Hutus.” Last week New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez introduced a Senate Resolution commemorating the 25th anniversary of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. It “calls on the United…

Who or What Brought Down Dag Hammarskjöld?

Why does the Hammarskjöld crash still matter? It matters because Secretary General Hammarskjöld had undertaken his mission just as many countries in Africa were seeking their independence from the colonial world. Hammarskjöld was ahead of his time in pushing back against what today we might call the deep state. Picture released on August 15, 1960…

Liberté, Égalité, Impérialisme! Vive la France in Black Africa!

Ann Garrison Paul Kagame’s troops most likely shot down a plane carrying two African presidents, igniting genocides that killed millions — but the Rwandan President has never been charged. “Former Rwandan General Nyamwasa said that Kagame most definitely ordered his troops to shoot down the plane carrying the Rwandan and Burundian presidents.” Geopolitics trumped international…

Et tu, RT? Amplifying Western Disinformation on Rwanda

Ann Garrison The Great Lie about the Rwandan bloodbath opened the door to a far larger genocide in Congo and justified US military interventions all over the planet. “The institutionalization of the ‘Rwandan genocide’ has been the remarkable achievement of a propaganda system sustained by both public and private power.” During a recent campaign event,…

The Globe and Mail: Canada’s Crimes in Rwanda

Yves Engler Canada’s paper of record pulled another layer off the rotting onion of propaganda obscuring the Rwandan tragedy. But, The Globe and Mail has so far remained unwilling to challenge prominent Canadians who have crafted the fairy tale serving Africa’s most ruthless dictator. Last month, a front-page Globe article added to an abundance of evidence suggesting…

Intel Report on Rwandan Assassins: One of the World’s Most Prolific Death Squads

Ann Garrison Six men charged with attempting to kill Rwanda’s former army chief Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa Memos from an intel-for-hire outfit reveal that Washington’s top ally in Africa, Rwanda dictator Paul Kagame, runs one of the world’s most prolific assassination squads. “Rwandan dissidents in exile were assassinated in Brussels, Yaounde, and Nairobi, and there have…

Rwanda War Crimes Cover-Up

Christopher Black The United States and its allies are experts at covering their crimes and finding scapegoats to take the blame for them. They are doing it now with their disinformation campaigns against Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Syria. The show trials at the UN’s Yugoslav tribunal, the ICTY, were all about covering-up…

Congo in the Abyss

Ann Garrison The imperial aggressions of western governments have inflicted multiple holocausts on the Congolese people. “In Congo, globalized capitalism creates permanent chaos.” This week I spoke to Swiss Congolese historian and activist Bénédicte Kumbi Ndjoko about recent developments in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Ann Garrison: On February 12, 2018, the UN High Commissioner…

Why are Ugandan Troops Amassed at the Congo Border Again?

Ann Garrison and Helen Epstein “Rwandan dictator Kagame appears to be pursuing his own agenda in Congo by driving local people out and populating their land with newcomers.” Another slew of Orwellian headlines appeared in the press this week, along with the usual bellicose chants that war is peace, freedom is slavery, and elite security…
