"APRES MOI, LE DELUGE!" (AFTER ME, THE DELUGE)

A documentary film and book project about the politics of genocide: Case Study: Central Africa.

PREVIEW OF
SELECTED INTERVIEWS

A documentary film & book project.

"APRES MOI, LE DELUGE." These are the infamous words spoken by the western backed dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, who ruled over the Congo -- which he renamed ZAIRE in 1972 -- from 1965 to 1997.  Mobutu's prescient warning provedfar more true than anyone could have predicted. 

The violence in the Great Lakes region of Africa has not subsided.  At present, there are more than 500,000 refugees and some 2 million displaced persons in the region.  There are all kinds of nasty lies and distortions and propaganda being printed about Central Africa -- being produced across the political spectrum, from the Nation magazine to the New York Times to the BBC.


Please watch this 27-minute video of selected interviews and support this documentary film and book project.  We have changed the working title of the film to LE DELUGE (THE DELUGE).  The video below is not the film, and it is not the trailer for the film: it is merely selected interviews compiled together to create a promotional tool.

The Congo is all over the news, but few of the most basic facts are ever told. Facts like the presence of Banro Gold Corporation, or how DHL (the shipping company) participates in the theft of minerals from Congo, or the involvement of US officials like Roger Winter (see: Special Report: Exposing US Agents of Low-Intensity Warfare in Africa), or the propaganda roles of academics like Dr. Eric Reeves at Smith College.

We know the names of the people responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Central Africa, and we know what needs to be done to change the horrible situation there. Most people who claim to be experts on the Congo go nowhere near -- and say nothing about -- the deeper realities, even when they have been told the facts.

Help us make this film and change the horrible situation in Central Africa and bring awareness about western media propaganda about Africa.  Please support us today.

Keith,

Excellent and important sampling of interviews from over 150 hours of them. 150+ hours! Wow! That's a lot of work and dedication.

Related article by Milton Allimadi:

He's editor of The Black Star News and is one of the interviewed persons in the above video, as most people who listened to the above video will probably recall.

"Did Paul Kagame order the 1994 assassination of President Juvenal Habyarimana"
By Milton Allimadi, August 18, 2012
www.globalresearch.ca/did-paul-kagame-order-the-1994-assassination-of-president-juvenal-habyarimana/32399

It isn't long at all and he mentions "Gen. Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa, Rwanda’s former chief of military staff", and also one of the people interviewed in the above video, that he claimed that "Gen. Kagame had ordered the downing of the presidential plane", as mentioned in the interview in the above video.

But the point I really intend to make about the above article, besides it simply being related to what your above video tells us, is that Milton Allimadi says that General Nyamwasa was very nearly assassinated in South Africa, where he's evidently been holding out in normally relative safety from the despotic Kagame regime ever since General Nyamwasa fled to "in February 2010 after a falling out with Gen. Kagame". It seems that six alleged gunmen may've been out to assassinate him and one that got to him managed to shoot him in the abdomen, after which the gun jammed.

The six, "including three Rwandan nationals and three Tanzanians, were captured by South African security officials" and they were "on trial in a Johannesburg court" when Milton Allimadi wrote the above article.

I don't recall mention of this assassination attempt in any of the interviews in your above video so wanted to bring this subject out here, since he is one of the people you interviewed.

Re. Marianne Baziruwiha:

I wish this "Rwandan Embassy dignatory and genocide survivor" very well (I take notes from important videos). She has an awfully tragic and painful memory to live with and I truly wish her well. She says she's "guilty". Guilty of what? Yes, she was naive; naively having acted in good faith, unwittingly trusting the RPF who apparently had been treating her well or relatively well, since they provided her with both food and shelter. That's a reason many people would accept as meaning that the helpful parties can be trusted to be humane. Most people would, I believe.

It's the hellish/hellbent RPF that massacred innocent and defenceless Hutus, a crime that Ms Baziruwiha clearly never had any intention of contributing to.

She's apparently a strong person of very good spirit since she manages to be able to live with a very good mind when she has such painfully regrettable memories to live with as a major Cross of burden for the rest of her life. And it surely will be for the rest of her earthly life.

The souls of those Hutus who were massacred on that day because of coming out when she called to them will see her pain, suffering, and they will also be greatful for her honesty, love, and compassion, plus her courage to speak out as an eyewitness.

Lastly, may real and pervasive Justice and Peace come to this very dark world, very soon!


P.S. I wish you "all the success in the world" at continuing your excellent and very important work.
