Rwandan Greens President, Frank Habineza was in Perth last week to raise awareness about the Rwandan Greens around the Commonwealth Leaders meeting. Rwanda is the newest member of the Commonwealth but there is a cloud over the oppressive way it treats its media and opposition parties. Frank met with a number of WA Greens while he was in Perth and he lobbied Foreign Ministers, former Prime Ministers and Commonwealth organisations. He found new allies to help support the Rwandan Greens into the future as they work to get their party registered and run candidates in the 2013 election.

Have a listen to Frank’s interview on Radio National Breakfast, or if you are interested in more detail about Frank’s story have a look at his 30 minute speech to a Public Forum on Human Rights and the Commonwealth, organised by Senator Scott Ludlam’s office.
