Global Witness

>> Sunday, October 28, 2007


As human beings on a planet full of suffering and strife, at times all that we can offer is our capacity as compassionate witnesses.

Be a witness, submit your letter, share your story. Email your letter to or leave a comment below.

Dear New York Times Editor:

As your paper focuses news coverage on Uganda and the upcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, I strongly urge you to cover the human rights situation in Uganda.

Far from the attractive tourist-friendly face Uganda's image makers would have you see, Uganda is a country of great paradoxes.

The "protected villages" in the northern part of the country (also called IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camps under international law) have been the scene of horrific death and rampant disease. Please send your reporters to cover that story.

Please see the attached article on the current situation in Uganda in general, as well I have attached a recent letter by Human Rights Watch to President George Bush and Condolezza Rice.

Best Regards,

John Peters


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.
