Uganda: August 13, 2003


Some Ugandan church leaders have suggested the government, with the help of international peacekeepers, open "relief corridors" into northern Uganda. The church leaders say the problems experienced by refugees (sometimes called "displaced people" since they are internal refugees, ie, haven't crossed a border) in northern Uganda are increasing. One of the groups promoting this policy is the Acholi Religious Leaders' Peace Initiative. Much of north Uganda is Acholi tribal country. Some Acholi are sympathetic to the LRA. This particular group has tried to act as a contact between the Ugandan government and the LRA.
