The Myth of the Akazu Genocide Conspiracy and Its Consequences

Featured Guest(s):
Barry Collins,

Collins dispels some of the myths about Habyarimana and his government that were fabricated by the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) and the Western powers to demonize and bring down the Habyarima government, and to make way for the US supported RPF.

A major myth is the "Akaza" (little house), which deceptively paints a picture of Habyarimana's wife, family, and inner circle as "extremist Hutu" upset with concessions Habyarimana made during the Arusha Accords and planning a "genocide" against the Tutsi.

Another myth: Habyarimana denied the Tutsi refugees from the 1970s war to return to Rwanda.

Collins shows how international justice morphed into international politics when the prosecution at the ICTR refused to honor the evidence showing the RPF shot down the plane carrying both President Habyarimana and Burundi President Ntaryamira.

Collins points to the Human Rights Watch (HRW) and other HR organizations playing the hand of the imperialists in setting up the situations and polices that handed Paul Kagame impunity.

An Apology to General Proctor.

Featured Guest(s):
Phil Conlon,

The Cult of Brock was established in Canada by the Tories in order to build the idea of a British identity. Part of this historical revisionism involved the demonization of General Proctor. Phil explains how Canadian history suppresses the story of how Proctor tried to maintain the Crown's alliance with local First Nations peoples. He was retroactively pilloried by his own masters for following the spirit of these orders.
