Politicide Watch for Zimbabwe: 20 February2002
Genocide Watch
has declared a Politicide Watch for Zimbabwe. We call on governments to protest not only President Mugabe's new restrictions on civil liberties, but also to demand, in the strongest terms, that ZANU-PF dismantle and disarm its Youth Brigade militias, and that the Zimbabwe Army brigade be withdrawn from Matabeleland. President Mugabe must be put on notice that if political or genocidal massacres are committed by these militias or by elements of the Zimbabwe armed forces, he will be held personally responsible. 2002 News Monitor for Zimbabwe

Chechnya: "A serious potential for the eruption of mass violence." The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Committee on Conscience has placed Chechnya on "watch" status, indicating that "circumstances indicate a serious potential for the eruption of mass violence. "Watch" status constitutes the first level of three "graduated categories of urgency." The Committee's concern stems from: 1) Past persecution of Chechens as a people, 2) The demonization of Chechens as a group within Russian society, 3) The level of violence directed against Chechen civilians by Russian forces.
