    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

    Marcus Patrick English actor joins GD on A Touch of Grace

    in Entertainment

    (S6E2) G|D Welcomes...


    Marcus Patrick born in Bath, England, is an actor.


    Date: Tuesday May 12th, 2015 @ 3P/PST : 5P/CST : 6P/EST


    Call Into Show: (347) 989-8346


    More About Patrick: 


    Marcus Patrick born in Bath, England, is an actor. His father was of English, Irish, and French descendance. His mother was born of Jamaican, Cuban, and Cherokee descendance. He is the middle child and has two sisters.


    Despite a tumultuous childhood which is another story for another time, Marcus excelled in piano, voice, gymnastics and swimming. He also took up Tae Kwon Do, and became the Junior and Men’s Heavyweight champion.


    For a while, Marcus was intent on becoming a professional fighter, but then realized that his violence was fueled by a history of physical abuse, and decided he could fight no longer. Instead, he turned to singing, and at the age of 17, he auditioned with Simon Cowell of American Idol fame, and toured in a boy band until he was 20, at which time he went solo, with Simon acting as Agent and Manager.


    As a result, Marcus pursued the dream of coming to America and supported himself as a Personal Trainer as he started taking acting lessons. He finally started booking roles via Eric Morris, and he was on his way.


    Arriving Los Angeles, he continued perfecting his acting and met up with Gar Lester of JLA Talent, who saw the potential in Marcus to become something truly substantial. Together they have built up quite an impressive resume including several feature films and TV guest star appearances including Dirty Laundry; Beyond the Break, CSI: Miami. Now Marcus  landed the role of Jamal Cudahy on ABC-TV’s All My Children.
