Today is World Human Rights Day. Right now, the rights of genocide survivors to get adequate and prompt reparation remains in limbo.  This is obviously in stark violation of article 8 of the human rights declaration that we celebrate today. 25 years after the annihilation of Rwanda’s Tutsi in 1994 genocide and 70 years after the adoption of both  human rights declaration and genocide convention, Let us keep calling  for reparation, the Government of Rwanda, the international community and several multinational corporations that made genocide possible: BNP Paribas bank, Belgolaise, IMF, Wordbank to name but a few. End.
