Freedom of expression in Rwanda has been unduly restricted for many years. The months leading up to the August 2010 presidential elections were marked by a clampdown on freedom of expression, which still shows no sign of abating. In this campaign digest Amnesty International calls on the Rwandan authorities to allow opposition politicians, journalists and human rights defenders and others to express their views without fear for their safety and to accelerate the review of the "genocide ideology" law and the 2009 media law.
