The Rwandan Genocide of 1994 was a truly traumatic and horrifying event. It was one of the most brutal acts of murder ever committed.
- Over the course of 100 days from April 6 to July 16 1994, an estimated 800,000 to 1 million Tutsis and some moderate Hutus were slaughtered in the Rwandan genocide. A recent report has estimated the number to be close to 2 million.
- During this period of terrible slaughter, more than 6 men, women and children were murdered every minute of every hour of every day. This brutally efficient killing was maintained for more than 3 months.
- There are between 300,000 to 400,000 survivors of the genocide
- Between 250,000 and 500,000 women were raped during the 100 days of genocide. Up to 20,000 children were born to women as a result of rape.
- More than 67% of women who were raped in 1994 during the genocide were infected with HIV and AIDS. In many cases, this resulted from a systematic and planned use of rape by HIV+ men as a weapon of genocide.
- There are 10 times as many widows than widowers – almost 50,000 widows of the genocide.
- Nearly 100,000 survivors are aged between 14 and 21, of which 60,000 are categorised as very vulnerable.
- 75,000 of survivors were orphaned as a result of the genocide.
- Of those that survived the genocide over half the children stopped their schooling, because of poverty.
- 40,000 survivors are still without shelter, many whose homes were destroyed in the genocide.
- 7 in 10 survivors earn a monthly income of less than 5000 Rwandan Francs (Equivalent to 8 (eight) American Dollars)
The UN said it couldn’t declare it a genocide while it was happening because, apparently, something can only be declared a genocide after its happened. Just another example of the UN being useless cunts.
I always see people using those ‘God Bless America’ eagle graphics ironically so I thought:
oh man, what if Canadians were equally as loud and overzealous with that sort of blind patriotism
what would our obnoxious graphic representation look like
I love it! Look at that majestic beaver! I think it gives the eagle a run for its money.
- “Your creeping me the math out!”
- “No one sucks the life out of my penguins except me! And maybe polar bears, because thats just nature, Gunter”
- “I wanna snuggle you through time and space!!”

After six months of civil war, the fall of Tripoli came quickly, with a carefully orchestrated uprising launched on Saturday night to coincide with the advance of rebel troops. While scatted battles continued Monday, it is believed that opposition forces control 95% of the Libyan capital.
Yeah! Go Libyan Rebels!
