In light of the prosecution theory of a government conspiracy to commit genocide, the outcome should cause all commentators to revisit their notions of the 1994 Rwandan events. But another issue is why the rights of Mugireneza and the others have not been restored. They remain in legal limbo in Arusha, Tanzanian, facing an uncertain and perhaps dangerous future.

They describe the various means that Israel has used to interfere with their education and the origin of the Right 2 Education Campaign.
"The Right to Education Campaign is a grassroots Palestinian movement that seeks to document, research and raise awareness about the issues facing Palestinian students, teachers and academic institutions under Israeli military occupation. Demanding unimpeded access for all Palestinians to their academic institutions, the Right to Education Campaign opposes Israel’s illegal occupation and attacks on Palestinian educational rights. The campaign also seeks to build an international movement in support of Palestinian students, teachers and educational institutions.
The campaign is jointly run by four West Bank universities: Birzeit University in Birzeit, Al-Najah National University in Nablus, Hebron University in Hebron and Al Quds University in Abu Dis. These branches of the Campaign both collaborate on major projects and work on issues particular to each university. Currently, the four branches are working to establish roots in other universities both in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The right to education is a basic human right and fundamental to human freedom. The United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that ‘everyone has the right to education’ (Article 26, 1948). The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, ratified by Israel in 1991, states that ‘Education is both a human right in itself and an indispensable means of realizing other human rights’. However the Israeli military systematically obstructs education in the West Bank and Gaza, which violates the human rights of individuals and also impedes the development of Palestinian society."

It makes you think whether you'd risk your happiness and security, and your life, to oppose a horrible wrong done to someone you don't even know. This is a key moral question of our times.
