Merry Chistmas & Happy New Year Card for Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza and Bernard Ntaganda

By Ann Garrison
December 25, 2010

Please add your Christmas wishes to this global online Christmas card for Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza and Bernard Ntaganda, and for the Rwandan people, and African people of the wider region, who have suffered such brutal dictatorship and exploitation for so long.

The AfrobeatRadio Collective will publish everyone's good wishes, on AfrobeatRadio website.

Please include names and locations, unless doing so is cause for anxiety.

To Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza and Bernard Ntaganda
1930 Prison
Kigali, Rwanda

Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, Rwanda's FDU-Inkingi opposition leader, is spending Christmas in Rwanda's maximum security 1930 prison.

Bernard Ntaganda, Rwandan opposition leader, planned to protest the opposition's exclusion from Rwanda's 2010 presidential election, saying, "Silence is acceptance." He was arrested before he could leave the house on 06.24.2010, and is now, like Victoire Ingabire, spending Christmas in Rwanda's 1930 maximum security prison.

Dear Victoire and Bernard:

We are sad to see you, two of the candidates who attempted to contest this year's Rwandan presidential election, spending Christmas behind bars, in Rwanda's 1930 maximum security prison. Your incarceration, even after the release of the October 1st UN Mapping Report documenting the Kagame regime's war crimes, crimes against humanity, and civilian massacres in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is justice turned upside down, or rather, no justice at all.

Though you will not even be able to read this card online or in print, we hope you may somehow hear of it and be heartened.

Thank you many times over for your courage and strength.
