Controversial American Lawyer, Prof. Peter Erlinder, suffered yet another major blow in his campaign to trivialise the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, after his national tour to promote a new book on the Rwandan Genocide was marred by angry protestors, reports from the US indicate.

Erlinder, who awaits summons from the High Court to answer charges relating to negating the Genocide, is on a tour to launch a book and narrate the story about his time in Rwanda, but angry protestors confronted him, accusing him of denying the Genocide.

According to the reports, the American Professor who was detained in Rwanda in May, last year, and later released on bail, struggled to deliver his speech, as he faced hundreds of protestors shouting slogans and waving placards reading “Genocide denier.”

The protestors have since vowed to follow Erlinder to every venue he speaks at, to expose his lies.  According to one of the protestors, the Professor has been forced to cut short some of his tours, after being overwhelmed by the angry protestors.

Erlinder began his tour at George Washington University Law School, Washington D.C. on January 24, before he moved to University of Pennsylvania and Temple University Law Schools and finally Fordham University Law School.

On January 28, Erlinder spoke in Pittsburgh while on January 31, he addressed a small group of students at the University Of Pittsburgh Law School.
The Professor is presenting what he has described as the original UN documents as well as his analysis of what actually happened in Rwanda between 1993 and 1995.

The 70-page compilation, among many other allegations, suggests that the US Army was aware of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsis prior to it taking place.
