Agathon Rwasa

Agathon Rwasa (right) is the leader of the Hutu-extremist Burundian rebel group Palipehutu-FNL (commonly known as FNL). This group has links with the militia who carried out the 1994 Rwandan genocide, and shares a similar ideology. Over the last ten years, the FNL has committed countless massacres against Burundian civilians, for the most part targetting those of the Tutsi ethnic group. During these massacres, torture is commonplace, and many of their victims have been children.

The most notorious FNL attack in recent years was the August 2004 massacre of 159 Congolese Tutsi refugees at Gatumba, in the west of Burundi. The FNL took the unusual step of admitting responsibility for this attack, stating that the international community was powerless to do anything to stop them.

This is a website dedicated to stopping the FNL and holding its leader, Agathon Rwasa, accountable for his many crimes.

Britain is a key player within the UN. If you live in the UK, why not fax your MP and urge them to do more to hold the FNL accountable for its crimes?
