Tensions In Paris After Kagame's Visit

Sos Racism accuses Congolese of racist attacks on tutsis in Paris, reported by Afrikarabia. This in turn led to a protest by Congolese activists at the office of SOS Racism The reason, a press release by Dominique Sopo, President of SOS Racism. Great way to discover new blogs focused on Congo or the Great lakes diaspora, focused on Kasai focused RD Congo. The blog by Roger Bongos, who took this video.

If these racist incidents are proven, it illustrates my point concerning the counterproductive strategy By Tshisekedi's UDPS when it instrumentalizes a Xenophobic discourse .

This has nothing to do with Tshisekedi’s alleged “instrumentalization of xenophobic discourse.” This is about the right of victims of Kagame's barbarism to demonstrate... In fact, as some of the Congolese point out in that video, Congolese marched hand in hand with anti-Kagame Rwandans. SOS Racisme is a disgrace, trying to justify the subsidies it gets from the French tax-payers by attacking Congolese anti-Kagame protesters.

SOS Racism was previously in the news in the process against Pierre Péan in 2008. A process it lost. http://www.marianne2.fr/Pean-gagne-contre-Sos-Racisme-Kagame-mange-son-chapeau_a93165.html

So, SOS racism does have a history of siding with the regime in Kigali.
