CEGUN Documentary on Acholi Genocide

>> Wednesday, June 25, 2008

CEGUN (Campaign to End Genocide in Uganda Now), has released a mini-documentary about the ongoing genocide in Acholiland. The documentary focuses on the "protected villages" the Ugandan government set up as a method of "protecting" people from the LRA. Instead, the villagers became sitting targets in the camps, and the camps themselves became death traps, characterized by disease, hunger and death.

At one point over 1,000 people were dying weekly as a result of the conditions in the camps. Today, a hepatitis epidemic has begun to spread through camps in Kitgum District, as a result of similar conditions.

Featured in the film are Olara Otunnu, former UN Undersecretary General for Children in Armed Conflict, Milton Allimadi, Black Star News Publisher and CEGUN members Lucy Larom, Gloria Oloya, Kathy Smith and Tim Hardy.

Travel to Uganda, to see what the Ugandan government has successfully hidden from the world. Witness the suffering of innocent civilians caught between a brutal rebel army and equally lethal government troops.

Why have these Ugandans been denied a right to protection? Why does the world's superpowers continue to support a government which has failed its own citizens? Where is the world's concern for this ongoing, slow-motion genocide? What does the future hold for northern Uganda's children?


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.
