Half the Battle

October 13, 2010

This week in Paris, the French authorities arrested a man named Callixte Mbarushimana at the request of the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands. Mr. Mbarushimana is wanted for charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity. He is allegedly one of the leaders of F.D.L.R., a military group in central Sub-Saharan Africa that has perpetuated shocking atrocities against civilians in a bid for power. They are going to extradite him to The Hague to stand trial.

I don’t know enough to say anything more about what’s going on in Africa. But I do know this one thing, and that’s a start, because if I don’t know then I can’t care.
