Ex-U.S. Ally Gen. Museveni's Attacks On Uganda's Women
Fellow Ugandans and Friends of Uganda, a great injustice and criminal act is being committed by the brutal Museveni police force against an innocent breast-feeding woman, who was among 12 Ugandan women who were arrested last Tuesday for protesting against a government tax on water and kerosene.
Asara Night Eyoru, who is a councilor representing a North-West Ugandan town of Arua has been held in a very dirty and damp cell at a notorious Kampala police station, where torture, rape and starving of inmates is common.
She is reported to be in great pain, with chest pains and swollen breasts, and has been kept in prison without being produced in court within the constitutionally mandated period. Ugandan pro-democracy activists are planning a public protest on Friday to bring her plight to the attention of the world.
All that is possible must be done by all who can to save this innocent woman from impending tragedy. The brutal regime of Yoweri Museveni must be condemned for this and other brutal and savage acts against the People of Uganda.
Please post this message further. I am personally going to forward this to Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the European Commission, The British Foreign and commonwealth Office, the United States Department, US Senate, and other global bodies, who are called upon to support the Ugandan People in our on-going Struggle against the Museveni dictatorship.
What the rest of you do? Please make your little contribution to free Uganda from this Nazi/Gestapo-style repression.
