Victims from northern Uganda attend Barlonyo prayers in solidarity

Barlonyo vigil

From 20-22 February 2012, JRP organized an exchange between victims’ groups from across the greater north. More than 35 representatives from West Nile, Acholi, Lango and Teso attended the 8th annual memorial prayers and candlelight vigil for the 2004 Barlonyo massacre. Afterwards, they met for a 1-day learning and exchange visit to share experiences (both personal and group) and set a way forward that will enhance and unite victim-led advocacy for transitional justice in Uganda.

Photos from the 3 days are available here, with a video advocacy documentary coming soon.
