Phone Script (Adapt for Letters and Emails)

Hello, my name is _______ and I am calling from city, state to make sure Senator (or Representative) ______ has information regarding the October 30th scheduled visit by President Museveni of Uganda to Washington to meet with President Bush. (If press conference has been scheduled, invite member to attend.)

Given the record of human rights abuse, the upcoming meeting should be focused on ending the long-standing genocide and disregard for human rights within Uganda. Pres. Museveni claims to be committed to democracy and human rights. Throughout his regime, he has instead engaged in directed hate-campaigns against certain ethnic groups, the forced displacement of Ugandan citizens into miserable camps and the failure to provide needed assistance for their resettlement.

The U.S. continues to provide large amounts of financial assistance to Uganda, without insisting on full accountability for the use of funds. Adherence to human rights principles and full accountability for the use of funds should be minimum requirements for any future foreign aid from the U.S. I can send further information on the Ugandan government’s record on these matters.

About This Blog

The X.U.G (Xpose Uganda's Genocide) Coalition was created to bring to light the truth about Yoweri Museveni's woefully undemocratic regime and the ongoing secret genocide in northern Uganda, with the aim of the restoration of human rights and peace.

The coalition's secondary goal is to ensure accountability for reconstruction and development funds slated for war-torn N. Uganda by the US and other donors.

A crisis of epic proportions, the genocide being carried out against the Acoli for the last two decades has produced devastating consequences.

For the sake of current and future generations in Uganda, the world must recognize and end the genocide in Uganda. All Ugandans have a right to basic human rights, including the right to health, protection and education.
