Uganda Police Assault and Arrest Oil Pipeline Protestors

A deeply concerning report from The Guardian highlights that in Uganda, police have resorted to assault and arrest to suppress protestors demonstrating against an oil pipeline. This alarming incident underscores the urgency of the climate crisis and the high-stakes struggles faced by those advocating for environmental protection. We must recognize the gravity of this situation and stand in solidarity with those fighting to preserve our planet. The assault on protestors is a stark reminder of the ongoing battles for climate justice. It's time for the world to unite and demand a swift transition to sustainable, clean energy.

    This is very outrageous ..Attacks and arrests of climate protestors is very retrogressive behavior that only amplifies a level of impunity of the administration in place

                    It is heartbreaking to hear that the Uganda police are using violence and arrests to suppress protestors who are peacefully demonstrating against an oil pipeline. This not only violates their right to freedom of expression and assembly, but also raises concerns about the government's commitment to protecting the environment and listening to the concerns of its citizens. Dialogue and peaceful resolution should be encouraged instead of resorting to force.

                        @chris_ngatia some people in the higher ups feel like the protesters are challenging their positions.

                              They use force to harass protesters who are only trying to voice their concerns,it's unacceptable.
