Published on 29 Nov 2019
Eric tells us the tragic story of how he survived the Rwandan genocide, when militia come to his house with the intention to kill him, but spared his life upon realising Eric’s association with football.
Help us spread the warning signs of genocide so that people like Eric never have to experience the horrors of genocide ever again. Learn more about fighting hate with rights here: https://eachother.org.uk/fighthatewithrights/
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
