Brussels 08 April 2019/ACP: Today the ACP Secretariat joins with the Embassy of Rwanda to mark the 25th anniversary of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide against the Tutsi. And as custom for the ACP Group in the last 15 years, we have made this commemoration a key event in our calendar. Today our thoughts are with the victims of this atrocious tragedy and our prayers are with the survivors who are true heroes among us as they continue to inspire us with their strength, resilience and determination.

Today, we will co-host a commemoration event at the ACP Secretariat’s headquarters, starting at 16h CET. The event will be streamed live on Twitter and on Periscope. We will share the link as soon as it goes live, so keep posted.
