A Conspiracy of Silence

STATEMENT before THE UN COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS:

“What should I tell the children of northern Uganda, when they write and ask:

Does anybody out there really care really care about our fate, about what is happening to us and our parents? We hear your deep silence.”

Tuesday, 10 April 2001,

Olara A. Otunnu,

United Nations Under-Secretary-General,

Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, 1997-2005

“The whole world watches as our children die.

Nobody cares anymore - if they did then someone would have come and stopped the war. Then we could go home and live and work to feed our children and earn money to send then to school. We cannot afford to buy medicine for our dying children – in the name of God, please someone help us before we all die.”

Mary,

Mother of seven children & three orphans,

Aware Camp, Gulu district, northern Uganda.
