The Strange Case of a Rwanda Refugee Applicant. Rwanda and the role of alternative media. Double Standard on Terrorism.
Lisa Winter-Card, Ann Garrison, Keith Bolender
Immigration lawyer Lisa Winter-Card discusses the strange case of Rwandan refugee applicant, Jean Berchment Habinshuti, who faces deportation
The case is strange because Habinshuti served as secretary to Prime Minister Agathe Uwilingiyimana, who was assassinated in 1994, and was widely perceived as a moderate. The present Rwandan government has a well-earned reputation for persecution of dissent. As Ms Lisa Winter-Card makes clear, Mr. Habinshuti is at risk.
In an unusual turn of events, KPFA host and journalist Ann Garrison interviews our host, Phil Taylor.
Edward S. Herman identified Western reporting on Rwanda as the greatest victory of the propaganda system in recent decades. In the context of trials over Rwanda, Phil and Ann explore the challenges faced by alternative radio programmers in countering the corporate media consensus.
Phil interviews Keith Bolender, author of "Voices from the other side," an oral history of terrorism against Cuba, and "Cuba Under Siege."
Keith talks about the arrest in Cuba of four terrorists based in Miami, Florida, who were planning to attack a Cuban military base in April 2014.
He also discusses the U.S. double standard on terrorism with regard to the "Cuban Five."
