    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


    Diaspora Group Commends House Chairman for Urging Investigation into Rwandan Human Rights Abuses


    At Hearing, Rep. Chris Smith Questions President Kagame’s Role in Killings, Disappearances


    WASHINGTON, DC (May 20, 2015) – Democracy in Rwanda Now (DIRN), a non-profit, non-governmental organization, on Wednesday praised the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations for urging an investigation into Rwanda’s human rights record and President Paul Kagame’s role in a series of troubling events including killings and disappearances of dissidents.


    Subcommittee Chairman Chris Smith (R-NJ) called some of the recent reported abuses “serious crimes” and said the international community needs to take a “very aggressive look” into what President Paul Kagame’s complicity was in the disappearances and killings of dissidents. “If there are death squads being deployed to kill the diaspora and political opponents...we need to get to the bottom of this,” he said.


    The chairman made the remarks at a hearing Wednesday called “Developments in Rwanda,” which he called to examine “persistent, credible reports of human rights abuses by this government both inside and outside the country,” and “how this reality impacts US policy toward Rwanda.”


    “Any investigation into the assassinations, attempted assassinations and disappearances of Kagame dissidents is welcome news,” said one of the hearing witnesses David Himbara, a former top economic aide to Kagame and coordinator for the North American branch of DIRN. “I applaud Chairman Smith and Ranking Member Karen Bass for their leadership on this very serious and important issue. The Rwandan people deserve to live in a free and democratic society without fear

    Creating Civil Rights Wealth 4 Gentrification Prevention

    in Real Estate

    On "It's My House" we shall discuss how to Create Civil Rights Wealth to prevent gentrification in your neighborhood.


    Civil Rights Wealth is created when you organize and use "Civic Assets" which are the "Civil Rights TOOLS" that you and your community needs. Doing for yourself instead of allowing the government to do it for you.


    Here are some examples of Civic Assets that can create 'Civil Rights Wealth":



    (Private Court System) Mediation/Arbitration (community liazon)
    Volunteer Fire Department
    Private Hospital (clinic)
    Private Police
    Reading Rooms
    Private Schools.....that teach Law Literacy, Law Enforcement Literacy, Municpality Literacy, Political Literacy, & Generational Wealth.
    Private Transportation Services (Uber) business model or Time Banking business model
    Neighborhood Improvement, Aquistion, & Capitalization.
    Block Parties
    Neighborhood Trust Emergency & Prepardness Team. 


    If your (block or neighborhood) does not have the "fundamental elements" that are listed above....then your neighborhood or community is AT RISK becoming gentrified.

    NBA Draft Lottery Needs Reboot, Blackhawks & Ducks 3OT Thriller, Game 3 Preview

    in Sports

    On Tuesday night, The Minnesota Timberwolves won the NBA Draft Lottery and the #1 pick in the 2015 draft.  The New York Knicks, with the second-best odds for the #1 pick, fell two spots to #4.  The Philadelphia 76ers will pick third, the Los Angeles Lakers second.  Is it time to do away with the current lottery system that encourages weak teams to "tank" for higher picks?  There are some alternatives worth serious consideration.  The Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks played an instant classic Game 2 of their Western Conference Finals series with the Hawks getting the win in triple overtime.  After such an immense effort from both teams, how will each respond in Game 3?  I've got the keys to the game.  All this plus your phone calls at (347) 327-9183!
