Rwanda arrests presidential candidate Victoire Ingabiré Umuhoza; Rwandans call on the international community to speak out





Rwandan presidential candidate Victoire Ingabiré Umuhoza, arrested 04.21.2010.

Rwandans and international supporters of peace and social justice in Rwanda and the Great Lakes Region of Africa are racing, on three continents, to respond to Rwanda's arrest of FDU-Inkingi presidential candidate Victoire Ingabiré Umuhoza.  


Today I wrote a brief introduction for the San Francisco Bay View, National Black Newspaper, publication of this letter and 5-point call to action written by Aimable Mugara, a Rwandan exile living in Toronto:


Rwanda arrests presidential candidate Victoire Ingabiré Umuhoza; Rwandans call on the international community to speak out



The SF Bay View now has a "translate" button and the machine translations will no doubt be imperfect, to say the least, but hopefully, it will help spread the news beyond the English-speaking world.
