Justice for the victims of the Gatumba massacre, Friday 13th 2004 sign now

On Friday 13th August 2004, at least 156 civilans were massacred at the Gatumba refugee camp, in Burundi. The victims were burnt, shot and hacked to death with machetes. All were of Tutsi ethnicity.

For more details, see: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/3564358.stm

The Hutu-extremist group Palipehutu-FNL has claimed responsibility for the Gatumba massacre, one of many that they have carried out against civilians in recent years. We the undersigned urge the United Nations Security Council:

*To condemn the Gatumba massacre in the strongest terms
*To make a firm commitment to investigate the Gatumba massacre as a War Crime, and bring those responsible to justice
*To hold the leadership of Palipehutu-FNL accountable for their campaign of violence against civilians in Burundi.
