Election violence increases in Rwanda and Burundi Special

Election violence increases in Rwanda and Burundi Special

May 22, 2010 - Violence, repression, and human rights abuse continues to increase as 2010 elections approach in the East African neighbor nations of Rwanda and Burundi, whose ethnicity, politics, and conflicts are closely intertwined.
Repression and human rights abuse continue to increase as 2010 elections approach in the East African neighbor nations of Rwanda and Burundi, whose ethnicity, politics, and conflicts are closely intertwined. This week Burundi ordered Human Rights Watch's researcher out of the country by June 5th, after she published her report on political violence “We’ll Tie You Up and Shoot You.”
Neighboring Rwanda did the same thing several weeks ago, and Rwanda's President Paul Kagame has continued to demand the forced repatriation of a million Rwandan refugees from Rwanda's northern neighbor Uganda.

Didas Gasana, Editor of Rwanda's banned African language newspaper Umuseso says that Rwandan President Paul Kagame is demanding that Rwandan political refugees be forcibly repatriated from Uganda so as to prevent them from joining militias to invade Rwanda as he himself and his militia did from 1990 until they seized power in 1994.

Rwanda presidential candidate Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza agrees and says that Kagame most likely wants to repatriate those young enough to join a rebel militia, possibly one led by General Kayumba Nyamwasa and Rwandan soldiers who followed him into exile in Uganda:
Ingabire reaffirms her conviction that there is no military solution for Rwanda, that only opening of political space to all Rwandans will bring lasting peace, even as she prepares to stand trial for crimes against the state which many say she has been charged with simply to prevent her from running against President Kagame.

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with
Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing
very good results. If you know of any please share.
Thank you!

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I'm not sure why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll
check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
