There has been a war going on in northern Uganda ever since 1987 between the rebels of the LRA ( Lord's Resistance Army) and the Ugandan government troops. In 1996, President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni ordered that all villagers in the Acholi region of Gulu and Kitgum districts must relocate and start living in refugee camps they call 'Protected Camps." This camps have instead become death camps and in some cases, even worse than concentration camps that were in Germany. People living in these camps have been abused, women and young girls raped by Ugandan soldier who are supposed to protect them and LRA rebels come at will to abduct the children. By 2004, the population of these camps spiked at over 2 million people. The international community has ignored this tragedy and Uganda's Western donors like Britain and USA, have instead continued to supply Ugandan government troops with arms and munitions as well as funds. These arms are later used to brutalized the civilians in northern Uganda. www.africaproject.net
