Write CHOGM!

Be an active witness. Set aside 21 minutes, Write CHOGM!

The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) was held November 23-25th, 2007 in Kampala, Uganda. Nearly all Commonwealth heads of state, including the Queen of England attended the meeting. Northern Uganda was not on the meeting's agenda.

Protests organized by the opposition were violently suppressed.

Despite Uganda's recent rash of human rights violations, President Museveni was complimented by both the Queen and Commonwealth Secretary General Don McKinnon for ruling democratically.
  • The values and goals of the Commonwealth include:

    • the promotion of democracy, human rights, good governance and the rule of law
    • individual liberty, egalitarianism, free trade, multilateralism, and world peace
  • The fate of millions of Ugandans residing in government camps lies in the balance. It is appalling that one of the architects of their suffering, President Yoweri Museveni, is now Chairman of the Commonwealth.

  • The world has remained a silent witness to this, a reflection in part due to the successful public relations campaign waged by the Ugandan government and its allies.
We strongly encourage you to take the time to write to different media outlets, your government representatives and the Commonwealth Secretariat.


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.
