by Ann Garrison. The Rwandan Genocide is commemorated in Rwanda and at the United Nations as “the genocide against the Tutsi.” However, there is ample evidence that hundreds of thousands of Hutus, as well as Tutsis, died in the Rwandan massacres.

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford. The impending breakup of the Republican Party will not create more favorable conditions for Black and progressive electoral politics. Instead, it will compel the Democrats to build a “big tent” party, after the convention this summer.

by Ann Garrison. The African Union has reversed its decision to send 5000 “peacekeepers” to Burundi, at the instigation of the U.S. and Europeans. The real threat to Burundi comes from neighboring Rwanda, which is training an army of refugees to invade Burundi. Why did the AU have a change of ...

<p>The tiny East African nation of Burundi remains unbowed despite pressure from Western officials. Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza, speaking to the press yesterday, remained firm in his rejection of a proposed African Union peacekeeping force in his country. U.N. Ambassador to the U.S. Samantha Power expressed her disappointment. KPFA’s Ann Garrison has more.</p> <div class=

Text version of my Project Censored radio interview with Professor Ed Herman, about "Enduring Lies: The Rwandan Genocide in the Propaganda System 20 Years Later," the book he and David Peterson co-authored in 2014.
<p>Paul Kagame, the leader of Rwanda, has killed more than five times as many people as Idi Amin. He invaded Rwanda in 1990 and carried out a war of conquest there that ended sometime in 1994. He invaded the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1996 and went in and out of that country for years, killing what the U.N. itself admitted was probably more than 4 million people. The U.S. not only failed to stop it, we actually supported the mass killing...

<p>South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are two of the world’s most resource rich and war-torn nations in the world. The U.N. Refugee Agency now reports that fighting between local armed groups and the South Sudanese army in South Sudan’s westernmost state has forced more than 4,000 South Sudanese to flee into a remote corner of the northeastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.</p> <div class=

The New Times of Rwanda, one of several state sanctioned media outlets, reports that a monument has been built on the banks of the River Nyabarongo “in memory of victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsis who were dumped into the waters.” KPFA’s Ann Garrison reports that the story is disputed with evidence that the victims were actually Hutus rather than Tutsis.

The U.S. is the #1 bilateral donor to the government of Uganda.
<p>Observers have an eye on the U.S. government’s response to Uganda’s presidential election coming up on Feb. 18. President Gen. Yoweri Museveni began his 30th year in power in 2016, and he is running for his fifth term. Uganda’s Parliament abolished presidential term limits in Uganda to enable him to remain in power in 2005. Ann Garrison spoke to Milton Allimadi, Ugandan American Editor of the Black Star News, about what to expect.</p> <div cla...

Senator Jeff Flake, R-AZ, made it clear that the subcommittee and the State Department both know that Rwanda is conscripting Burundian refugees on the Rwandan side of the Rwandan/Burundian border.
Burundian insurgents attacked three army bases early Friday morning. Fighting continued through the night and the dead in Burundi’s streets were estimated to be as high as 89 this morning. The government and opposition told conflicting stories about who the dead were and how they died. Two days before the latest attacks, a U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee held a hearing on the situation in Burundi. KPFA’s Ann Garrison has this report.

When I got to my destination, the fare said $14.30. The driver then flipped a button and switched it to $25. I asked how the fare had gone from $14.30 to $25 and the response was "flat fare."
