The UN and its international courts shouldn't have a chard of credibility left if they allow the Rwandan government to take charge of the ICTR archives.
Dr Gallimore addresses the Kigali International Genocide Forum. He says he has rallied for Rwanda being the final home of the archives.

"Archive of KPFA's livestream from yesterday's Oakland Rally for Real Climate Leadership, the largest anti-fracking rally in US history. The Western States Petroleum Association spent more money on California's last election, including $2.5 million on Governor Jerry Brown's campaign, than any other special interest group in the state. Governor Brown, a Democrat, makes pious speeches about Republican climate change denialists, then turns around and tells his sponsors to frack as they please."
On February 7th, thousands of Californians from across the state are gathering in Governor Jerry Brown’s longtime home of Oakland to say that we need real climate leadership -- and that we won't settle for anything less. RSVP and get the latest updates here: http://marchforclimateleadership.org/
