create a dialogue between paul and colonel oliver in hotel rwanda

Extracts from this document...


Paul: Hi how are you Colonel Oliver? Colonel Oliver: Good thanks Mr Rusesabagina. Paul: Thank you for taking the time to sit down and chat with me Colonel: No problem, it's my pleasure. Colonel: So how have you and the family been coping after the awful events in Rwanda? Paul: Well it was a horrible chapter in our lives, something that I still think about and will never forget. It has played a significant and devastating role on not only mine but millions of Rwandan lives. I'm still finding it hard to come to terms with what the UN, an organisation committed to equality and justice did, leaving us stranded there. Do they not know that many lives have been taken and acts of genocide were taking place? They UN's motto clearly states that (Article 2) "Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. ...read more.


Colonel: The superpowers of the world reacted somewhat the same as the international community, they had a look at the shocking images been broadcasted all over the world, heck! They even received the odd phone call but nonetheless they still managed to ignore you. And do you know why Paul? Paul: Why? Colonel: Because you're worth nothing to them! America doesn't want Rwanda, Russia doesn't want Rwanda, know one wants Rwanda. They gain nothing from going into Rwanda. If Rwanda had something they wanted they'd be in there in a flash and this whole crisis wouldn't have been to the extent that it was. The superpowers tried to make it clear that it was Rwanda's problem and Rwanda should try and fix it themselves. Paul: Colonel 900,000 people are dead! Rwanda has been torn apart, how can they just turn there backs? What has become of this world? ...read more.


This principle recognises the fact that victims of human rights abuse are able to leave their country freely and to seek refuge elsewhere. Governments always see refugees as a threat or a burden, refusing to respect this core principle of human rights and refugee protection. Colonel: "Do not betray the refugees". Isaiah 16:3. The death toll would definitely been higher if it wasn't for the awareness of countries taking in refugees. Paul: Yes, without doubt. Colonel: How important are the basic human rights to you Paul? Paul: Very important for sure. Some people access rights to gain fairness, some people protest in favour of rights for a healthy environment, me on the other hand I respect my rights for freedom from discrimination. Colonel: Well Paul, I must be going now. It's been great catching up with you my friend. I hope you and your family have a wonderful future. You've really inspired me to be a better person. Paul: Colonel I had a great time and I hope to see you soon again. ...read more.
