Statistics of the Genocide 
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)

Waterboarding … “To call  something an ‘enhanced interrogation technique’ doesn’t alter the fact  that we thought it was torture when the Japanese used it on American  prisoners, we thought it was torture when the North Koreans used it, we  thought it was torture when the Soviets used it. You know, it’s the  moral equivalent of saying that rape is an enhanced seduction technique.  ” ~ Ted Koppel 

The “enhanced seduction technique” comment is completely brilliant.

Fight the gender binary, free womyn

I thought maybe someone would jump in and stop the madness, but it just keeps getting worse.

  • “ Republicans have long tried to drive Democratic voters away from the polls. “I don’t want everybody to vote,” the influential conservative activist Paul Weyrich told a gathering of evangelical leaders in 1980. “As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.” But since the 2010 election, thanks to a conservative advocacy group founded by Weyrich, the GOP’s effort to disrupt voting rights has been more widespread and effective than ever. In a systematic campaign orchestrated by the American Legislative Exchange Council – and funded in part by David and Charles Koch, the billionaire brothers who bankrolled the Tea Party – 38 states introduced legislation this year designed to impede voters at every step of the electoral process. ”

    My rallying cry in 2012 will be “Piss off Republicans: cast a vote!”
