  • HOTEL RWANDA
    :
    Hollywood and the Holocaust in Central Africa
    What happened in Rwanda in 1994? The standard line is that a calculated genocide occurred because of deep-seated tribal animosity between the majority Hutu tribe in power and the minority Tutsis. According to this story, at least 500,000 and perhaps 1.2 million Tutsis---and some moderate Hutus--were ruthlessly eliminated in a few months, and most of them were killed with machetes. The killers in this story were Hutu hard-liners from the Forces Armee Rwandais, the Hutu army, backed by the more ominous and inhuman Interahamwe militias---"those who kill together." The award-winning film Hotel Rwanda offers a Hollywood version and the latest depiction of this cataclysm. Is the film accurate? It is billed as a true story. Did genocide occur in Rwanda as it is widely portrayed and universally understood? With thousands of Hutus fleeing Rwanda in fear of the Tutsi government and its now operational village genocide courts, is another reading of events needed? (With new research based on recent work in Central Africa. Final text published: 08 December 2005; revised 10 January 2006. )

  • MASS RAPE AND GENOCIDE IN RWANDA
    :

    Originally published as part of a longer story in PEACEWORK in March 1997, this revision (partially) corrects the record with regards to the U.S. media's unquestioning and irrefutable support and cover for U.S. proxy forces (RPF) in Rwanda.
