Moving on from the Police Siege of AA Uganda Offices


AA Uganda Offices, that of the Great Lakes Institute for Strategic Studies as well Solidarity Uganda/Act Alliance in Lira were raided by the police on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st September ostensibly to collect evidence about the three organisations involved in illicit financial transactions and supporting efforts to destabilize the country.    While the situation is slowly getting to normal and the police have since vacated the premises of the three civil society organisations, there is anxiety and inertia that remains from the siege last week. This short note and scenario matrix is a reflection on the unfortunate events last week and actions.
