The Global Night Commute
On April 29th in over 130 cities across the country, thousands are lying down to demand that our government take a stand and put an end to child abduction, the need for night commuting, and war in northern Uganda.
Franklin has more than 2000 people committed to being a part of the event this coming Saturday night.
I hear that Oprah had the film makers on her show yesterday. Good lovins guys!
Northern Uganda called the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today because of the lack of attention
1.7 million people forcibly displaced
AN estimated 20- 50,000 children abducted to fight as soldiers
tens of thousands of children commuting nightly
130 people die per day in Northern Uganda due to violence
We ask two things:
President Bush and The United States Government should press the United Nations and Yoweri Museveni to do everything in their power to:
End the conflict and protect the civilians in Northern Uganda.
Ensure adequate humanitarian assistance to the Invisible Children (in the internally Displaced camps and beyond)
