Advocate for Victoire Ingabire. Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa

Featured Guest(s):
Marceline Nduwamungu, Robin Philpot,

Phil is joined by an advocate for Victoire Ingabire, Marceline Nduwamungu. Ingabire has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for daring to assert her rights. Elections are something you just cannot do under Kagame.

A very timely update of Robin Philpot's earlier work on the events of 1994 in Rwanda, "Colonialism Dies Hard." Indeed, the scramble is on, and the IMF structural-adjustment continued apace while Kagame seized power.

Why do we hear about Rwanda so much, both on this program and the corporate news? As one commentator explains, "everywhere is Rwanda for the humanitarian interventionists." The causes of the conflict and tragedy in Rwanda in 1994 are becoming more widely understood. What Samantha Power and Philip Gouerivich have tried to carve in stone has already eroded.

ICC arrests two defense lawyers.

Featured Guest(s):
Chris Black,

Chris Black has practiced law at the various international tribunals, and has come away a bit sobered. Recently, the International Criminal Court has arrested two defense lawyers. "The prosecution is acting like a police force instead of just another party in the case" comments Black. It rings bells of what happened in the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

Haiti doesn't need any more of our 'help'. Mother Agnes-Mariam on Events in Syria. Libya's Hell, Enabled by Canadian Humanitarians.

Featured Guest(s):
Yves Engler, Mother Agnes-Mariam, Murray Dobbin,

Uruguay just withdrew troops from Haiti. Troops? Now that's a funny word for 'helping' Haiti. Yet the Canadian government says it 'helped' Haiti, while removing its democratically-elected government. From cholera to dictators, it seems as if foreign 'humanitarianism' is the real epidemic in Haiti.

Phil interviewed Mother Agnes-Mariam of Syria about her perspective on what is happening on the ground in that country today.

Western powers invoked the "responsibility to protect"(R2P) to bomb Libya.

The African Union asked NATO not to intervene, but was ignored. Gaddafi was captured and murdered, and today once-prosperous Libya is a political-economic disaster.

Murray Dobbin investigates the context of Gaddafi's existence as head-of-state in Libya, why the U.S. engaged in the pretense of supporting a democratic uprising in order to remove him, and the "humanitarian" echo chamber that substitutes for thinking.
