Judi Rever’s new book In Praise of Blood challenges the dominant narrative about the Rwandan genocide and the role of now-President Paul Kagame.

Canadian investigative journalist Judi Rever claims there was a second genocide in Rwanda that has never been properly accounted for.

In her new book In Praise of Blood: The Crimes of the Rwandan Patriotic Front, Rever argues the killing in Rwanda in 1994 was “bidirectional.”

“I’m not a genocide denier. I do recognize and believe, because there’s compelling evidence that shows the Tutsis were killed in massive numbers,” Rever told As It Happens host Carol Off.

“Am I a revisionist? I guess I am. Because the official narrative of the genocide stipulates that there’s basically one group of people who were targeted … and, in fact, that’s not true.”
