Examples of Genocide
Perhaps the most infamous genocide taken place, German Nazis attempted to eradicate all Jews and gypsies in all of Europe. They killed over six million people using what as known as Concetration Camps.
The most recent genocide to take place is the one in Rwanda. Starting on April sixth to July eighteenth 1994, over 800,000 Tutsi people were slaughtered by Hutu extremists.
Taking place in the United States, European settlers wanted resources from the land but could not have them because of the protective natives that lived there. Settlers devised an "Indian Removal Policy" to clear the land for white settlers. Around eleven million were killed due to murder or disease.
How to Prevent and Stop Future Genocides
Stop the Enablers. Perpetrators of genocide can't succeed without the support of other governments and corporations. We follow the money and apply public pressure to shame and stop companies and governments that finance the violence.
Make human rights and genocide prevention core values in U.S. foreign policy. In April 2012, President Barack Obama announced some actions to ensure the United States is better able to report to genocides. The main announcement came after years of pressure from activists working to see that the United States failure to respond to past genocides will not be repeated.
