A population-based case-control study was conducted to assess the relationship between genocide exposure and homicide perpetration in Rwanda. A sample of 150 homicide perpetrators who were charged with and confessed to having committed homicide between 1 May 2011 and 31 May 2013 and 450 controls were enrolled. Cases were matched to controls by neighborhood, age and sex. Socio-demographic, background and genocide-related information was collected from study subjects next of kin. Four characteristics of genocide exposure were: genocide survivor, genocide perpetrator, having lost a first-degree relative to genocide and having a first-degree relative convicted of genocide. We assessed the impact of each genocide-exposure variable using conditional logistic regression. Of the 150 cases, 124 (82.7%) were male and 26 (17.3%) were female. The mean age of the alleged homicide perpetrators was 33 years, with a peak in the age group 20-29 years (39.3%). After adjusting for socio-demographic ...
Downloadable! This paper is a quantitative study of the genocide in the prefecture of Kibuye in Rwanda in 1994. We use an original data base developed by the organisation of the survivors of the genocide (IBUKA) who collected the data by house-to-house fieldwork. The data contain information on the age, sex, commune of residence before the genocide, the professional occupation of the victims, the place and date of death and the weapon used to kill, for a total of 59.050 victims of genocide. For one commune (Mabanza), we re-coded the data, present detailed statistics and perform an analysis of survival chances. From the analysis, we derive that Tutsi from the sectors of Mabanza commune whose Tutsi population did not (or only in limited numbers) go to the Gatwaro Stadium had a better chance to survive the genocide in Kibuye. For the whole of the prefecture, we present an estimation of the daily killing rate, estimations of the number of Tutsi killed in the major massacres and the weapons used. For over 25
I contest the word Genocide and the inclusion of the latter in the title for the following reasons:. From the article genocide: "Genocide is defined by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG) Article 2 as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: Killing members of the group; Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.". 1- Title of an article speaks a lot for itself, inclusion of the word genocide in the title, implicitly states that the article will be able to provide enough proof of this claim.. And if it fails to do so, the word Genocide should only be included in the body of the ...

Srebrenica became a Muslim enclave and stronghold early in the civil war. The Muslim military command at Muslim-held Tuzla pumped weapons and equipment and Bosnian Muslim troops into the Srebrenica pocket. Bosnian Muslim military offensives were then launched from Srebrenica against Bosnian Serb-held villages. A major goal of the military operations was to establish a link with Muslim-held territory near Tuzla. The military offensives out of Srebrenica were lead by Naser Oric. His forces had taken and burned over 50 Serbian villages and killed hundreds of Serbian civilians and soldiers. He even reached the Serbian border at Skelani and threatened to cross over and occupy Serbian territory. Who was Naser Oric? On April 17, 1992, at the beginning of the Bosnian civil war, Naser Oric was made commander of the Potocari Territorial Defense. Naser Oric was born on March 3, 1967 in Potocari, a neighboring village of Srebrenica. His parents were Dzemal Oric and Hata Mustafic. Chuck Sudetic noted in ...

Another purpose is to survey the disability community regarding MDLCs advocacy priorities ...
Washington, D.C.(December 22, 2007) -The Coalition of Organizations for Accessible Technology hails the recently issued draft legislative measure, the Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act as a dramatic and comprehensive step forward for consumers with disabilities. Released yesterday, the draft would amend the Communications Act-the statute that impacts the telephone and video programming industries-to add new consumer protections that will ensure people with disabilities do not get left out or left behind as telephones and television programming increasingly rely on digital and Internet Protocol (IP) technologies. The proposals will allow greater numbers of people with disabilities to become independent and productive members of society, as well as to enjoy all the new electronic gadgets and devices that everyone else takes for granted.

Article adapted by Romina Ruiz-Goiriena. A majority of conservatives and business elites deny acts of genocide ever took place reigniting a decades-old debate. First and foremost, we must first analyze the definition of genocide according to the United Nations. We must then apply this definition to the events that took place in Guatemala in order to ascertain what is meant by genocide in Guatemala.
Abstract. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has been investigating the array of crimes committed in Canadas Indian Residential Schools. Genocide is being invoked with increasing regularity to describe the crimes inflicted within the IRS system, the intent behind those crimes, and the legacies that have flowed from them. We ask the following questions. Did Canada commit genocide against Aboriginal peoples by attempting to forcibly assimilate them in residential schools? How does the UN Genocide Convention help interpret genocide claims? If not genocide, what other descriptors are more appropriate? Our position might be described as "fence sitting": whether genocide was committed cannot be definitively settled at this time. This has to do with polyvalent interpretations of the term, coupled with the growing body of evidence the TRC is building up. We favour using the term cultural genocide as a "ground floor" and a means to legally and morally interpret the IRS system.. Résumé. La ...

A Dutch court said the Netherlands was partly liable for the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia, the worst atrocity in Europe since World War II.
The Netherlands is liable for the deaths of three Bosnian Muslim men killed in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, the Dutch Supreme Court ruled Friday. Dutch forces were in the city during the Bosnian war as part of a UN peacekeeping mission.
Genocide has scarred human societies since Antiquity. In the modern era, genocide has been a global phenomenon: from massacres in colonial America, Africa, and Australia to the Holocaust of European Jewry and mass death in Maoist China.
Only the United States has called it that.The U.N. says it may have some of the characteristics of genocide, it may be crimes against humanity, but it wont come out and flatly label it genocide.|br/||br/|The United States, to its credit, at least has given it that label.Meanwhile, though, nothing gets done to halt the rapes, killings, burning of villages and removal of populations.|br/||br/|News reports, columns and editorials (and, yes, letters to the editor) really do help mold public opinion and create pressure.What we need is a groundswell of public outrage to get the government to take real action to force Sudan to stop the slaughter.You might ask, whats this got to do with me?|br/||br/|

The equally vital obligation to prevent genocide needs to attain comparable rigour. To this end, the UN secretary-general has appointed a special adviser to collect information on massive and serious violations of human rights that could lead to genocide, and to enhance the capacity of the UN to analyze and manage information relating to this crime. The special adviser also liaises with other UN partners to better co-ordinate preventive activities ...
Following Wednesdays rebuke by the French Senate of the Armenian Genocide denial criminalization bill, Frances Justice Minister said that he would publish a memorandum that would mandate punishment for Genocide denial.
In conflicts that have potential to produce the worst of human atrocities, states and international actors must take action to identify the precursors of mass killing and stop it from ever happening. Thats precisely what is needed now in western Burma, where the Rohingya minority faces attacks so violent that state crime experts fear a full-on genocide is in the making. The Muslim minority, numbering around 1 million, shares the state with Rakhine Buddhists, who consider them to be illegal Bengali immigrants. The Burmese government, which shares this view, denies them citizenship as well as limiting their access to education and healthcare. Organized mob violence in late March, which wrecked the entire aid infrastructure serving 140,000 displaced Rohingya, was only the latest in a series of incidents in recent months that qualify as one of five commonly accepted indicators of a genocide. The Burmese governments apparent reluctance to intervene in the situation - it took the state three weeks ...

So what exactly is the truth? ALEXANDER DORIN, a Swiss researcher who just recently sent his book "Srebrenica - The History of Salon Racism" to print in German (Serb and English translations are planned in the future) said in an interview that, "After 14 YEARS of INVESTIGATING events that took place in Srebrenica in 1995 I can attest there was NO GENOCIDE over Muslims in that enclave - the MYTH about the massacre of Muslims was invented by the late Bosnian Muslim war leader ALIJA IZETBEGOVIC( MY NOTE:he was in favor of establsihing SHARIA LAW in Bosnia,so you can imagine if he ask yourself if he was 100% honest) and then-U.S. president Bill Clinton." Questionable as that allegation may sound to many, it is important to recall that the United States actively armed Izetbegović and his ragtag jihadist army during the war, applied pressure on Tudjmans secessionist Croat government to cease his involvement in the Herzeg-Bosnia land theft, and sought actively to create a Bosniak state where one had ...

The Baltimore nonprofit The League for People with Disabilities Inc. has joined with the publisher of i.d.e.a.l. magazine to distribute a new quarterly magazine about and for those with disabilities. The official launch is scheduled for Jan. 15.. The League has a print shop and bulk mail house called League Industries that will serve as the official printer and mail house for i.d.e.a.l. magazine.

She wants the magazine to be the voice of the disability community. The Leagues president and chief executive, ...
Guidelines to Terminology. Put the person before the disability. For example, use "people with disabilities" as opposed to "disabled people" or "the disabled.". Do not use phrases such as "confined to a wheelchair," "wheelchair bound,""crippled," "afflicted," "victim of" or "suffers from a disorder." These references diminish the individuals dignity and magnify the disability. Instead, refer to "the person who uses a wheelchair" or "the person with an emotional disorder.". Avoid using trendy euphemisms to describe people with disabilities. Expressions such as "physically challenged," "special" and "handi capable" generally are regarded by the disability community as patronizing and inaccurate. Stick with simple language, such as "people with disabilities" or "the person who is deaf.". Deaf refers to profound hearing loss. "Hard of hearing" may be used to describe any degree of hearing loss, from slight to profound. Avoid using "hearing impaired.". Impairment is used to characterize a physical, ...
There were several changes from the Governors budget which were applauded by advocates. The final budget includes $65 million more state funds than in 2011-12 and $17.8 million more state funds than the governor proposed for the Intellectual Disabilities Community Waiver line item. Including federal funds, there is a 6.2% increase from 2011-12 or 5.2% more than the Governor proposed. Language in the bill indicates that this includes enough money for a waiting list initiative-services for 700 special education graduates and 430 people on the emergency list living with "elderly caregivers.". The Services to Persons with Disabilities (CSPPPD) line item is increased 23.4% above 2011-12 and 18.9% above what the Governor proposed. Apparently thats based on the Office of Long Term Living recalculation of need. Attendant Care had been slated for a $13.34 million cut in the Governors budget; $8.5 million was added back in, reducing the size of the cut. These programs will still be subject to "high ...

October is an important month in the learning disability (LD) and disability communities. During October, we celebrate LD Awareness, Dyslexia Awareness, and ADHD Awareness. Each year, NCLD spends the month recognizing the strengths and successes of people with LD and their families.

While not visually impaired to where my eyesight cant be corrected to 20/20, I entered the disability community 18 years ago and its great persons as Matt take an initiative to assist, but I do have questions, as it appears he has input from the visually impaired. Including the time it takes someone to modify a device, modify the code, is this appreciably faster method to learn the operation of new device? How comfortable are the visually impaired with voiding the warranty by internal modification of a device they may ill afford to replace? Is a smartphone with a touch screen input, and layers of menus a phone the visually impaired would choose for daily use given cost considerations?. Not this doesnt have a direction to go. Develop a way to quickly create custom touch sensitive overlays to avoid internal modifications. Ditch the smart phone, along with the arduino and associated shields.

The Pentagon and CIA discovered their political limitations during the Vietnam Genocide. The filthy American war criminals spent 14 years slaughtering over three million Vietnamese people with carpet-bombing, napalm, Agent Orange, cluster bombs and racist terrorization by hundreds of thousands of murdering, raping, baby-killing American troops. And still they could not subdue the heroic Vietnamese people. Fearing a repeat of that humiliation, the U.S. Corporate Mafia Government tried a new strategy with the Iraqi people: bomb them into a pre-industrial condition and then grind them into submission with sanctions. No need for invasion and occupation, the Pentagon figured. So the American/British war criminals systematically targeted Iraqs civilian infrastructure. Schools, hospitals, factories and every industry connected to food production, water purification and irrigation were targeted for destruction. U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots destroyed a baby formula plant, food warehouses, ...
Jeremiah Wright believes that there are forces within America seeking a genocide against the African American community and beleieves that God will (or should)damn the United States for that. Steve Camp has also suggested that (through abortion) there are forces within the U.S that are seeking a kind of genocide (Steve did use that exact word. In a post directed to me) against African Americans. Steve seems to me to be damning in his condemnation of this sinister plot. In a sense, Steves view could be seen as a "conspiracy theory".Im not saying Steves view of Palnned parenthood/abortion drives directed against Afrcan Americans is kooky. Im just trying to highlight a point of similarity, however slight it may seem, with the context to Wrights "God Damn America" statement . Now, I dont necessarily agree with Steve on his "genocide" claims. And I dont necessarily agree with Rev Wrights "genocide" claims either. But if both men are sincere in their beliefs would either be wrong in denouncing ...

We are so close to passing real healthcare reform in this country. We need to keep up the pressure on Congress to get this done THIS year! Please contact your member of Congress and tell them to side with the American voters that elected them (and can un-elect them) and not the Insurance companies that feed their campaign funding. We deserve the CHOICE of a public option. 45,000 American tax-paying citizens die every year from lack of medical insurance (most are denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions). This is genocide of the poor and sick by the companies who are making billions in profits off the American consumer. Enough is enough ...
