0 Image of Woman Pleading with Uganda Police
A womans pleads with the Uganda Security forces in Lira. Begging them to stop shooting in the crowd. The Villages were rioting after a Massacre of over 250 People by the LRA. The Barlonyo Massacre.The woman lost his son to the LRA and later lost a sister to the Government anti Riot Security Forces.
There is considerable anger and anguish amoungst the people. They accussed the Governmentof failure to protect them from the LRA. The after Math of the LRA attack caused farther retribution deaths to certain Acholi tribe members in lira. The LRA which is attributed to be mostly an ACHOLI creation caused the people to avenge on any acholi who seemed to be linked to the LRA. This farther created a divide between the peopleof Acholi and the Lango tribe in Lira. Very Sad and Tragic.

The LRA trademarkof cutting ears, earned them the nickname chi leel. Direct Translation is Go and Spread the word. Thi is symbolic of Hear no evil, Speakof no Evil. The lips are cutof to discourage the victims from spreading negative publicity about the LRA. While the Ears are cutoff to symbolize that do not hear any evil about LRA.

Over 1,100,000 acholi’s were rounded from the country sides and forced into these overly populated camps.
The Acholi in these camps were left inadequately protected from the rebels. The Camp dwellers were left with no food, water, medicine and basic essential services like churches, Schools etc. The acholi People have died in thousands in these camps from secondary causes like diseases,(AIDS, Cholera, Malaria) They also died from primary causes such as Rebel Raids, UPDF militaryofficer muders and Tortures, Rampant Fires etc.
