Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa

The Hamilton Coalition To Stop The War is proud to present Robin Philpot, writer and publisher of the book below, speaking about Rwanda. This year marks the first time this UPDATED work has published in English, though the original French edition ([2003] Ça ne s’est pas passé comme ça à Kigali -translation: "That's not what happened in Kigali") was on the bestseller list in Quebec a decade ago for several months.

For praise for the book, please see below...

Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa

April 25

“… essential reading.” Ed Herman

An accepted narrative holds that horrible Rwandan Hutu génocidaires planned and executed a satanic scheme to eliminate nearly a million Tutsis after a mysterious plane crash killed the former president of Rwanda on April 6, 1994. Yet former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali says, “the Rwandan genocide was 100 percent American responsibility.” Where lies the truth?

Based on vast research, extensive interviews, and close analysis, this fascinating account shows not only that the accepted narrative is false but also that it has been edified to cover up the causes of the tragedy, protect the criminals responsible for it, and also justify the invasion of the Congo and the massacres that have followed.


“Robin Philpot’s Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa effectively dismantles a remarkable structure of disinformation on an important area and topic and it throws light on the broader thrust of imperial policy. This book is essential reading.” Edward S. Herman, Co-author of Manufacturing Consent (with Noam Chomsky) and The Politics of Genocide (with David Peterson)

FREE ADMISSION! The book will be on sale at a special discounted price.
