Chapter Summary

The emerging violence was not only against members of the political opposition, but there was also growing evidence of Hutu extremism against the Tutsi minority. The human rights violations ranged from hate propaganda to discrimination, violence and killings of Tutsi and moderate Hutu. It is important to note that in spring 1992 the bystander-states Canada, the United States, France, Belgium and the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) Amnesty International put the killings of the Tutsis in Rwanda on their agenda and held the Rwandan government responsible and accountable for these atrocities. Bacré Waly Ndiaye, who was the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions, talked explicitly about a &t;possible genocide&t; Integral parts of the hate propaganda against the Tutsi minority were the hate-citing radio broadcasts and newspaper articles. One has observed many very clear early warnings from divergent sources.

Keywords: bystander states; early warnings; extrajudicial executions; hate propaganda; human rights organizations; Hutu extremism; U.N. special rapporteur
