Rwanda's Commonwealth application

Members of the Global Greens community keep asking what we can do to protect Interim Rwandan Green Party Leader Frank Habineza and the Rwandan Greens. One of the only possible pressure points I know of is the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) which objects to accepting Rwanda into the Commonwealth because of repeated human rights violations and invasions of neighboring D.R. Congo.
The New Times, reported, in Rwanda: Kagame to Address London Summit on 11.03.2009, that Paul Kagame is in London right now, prepared to address the first "annual 'Private Equity in Africa" summit. Africa writer/investigator David Barouski believes that this is also a part of Kagame's bid to join theCommonwealth.
