UGANDA: CHIESA E MIGRANTI, QUALI SONO LE RESPONSABILITA’ DEL “PRIMO MONDO” SUL TERZO
1° settembre 2017

Bisogna andare a scorrere le pagine di Avvenire per trovare un’analisi del grande fenomeno delle migrazioni dall’Africa, che non sia l’ennesima ripetizione delle frasi che inondano la stampa nazionale: “Fermiamoli, accogliamoli, blocchiamo il flusso. Aiutiamoli a casa loro”. Sul giornale dei vescovi leggiamo questa settimana che “l’emigrazione africana non è figlia di una sciagura transitoria, ma di un sistema di saccheggio di cui siamo stati e siamo ancora parte attiva, addirittura suoi artefici”. Interessanti queste parole, perché strappano il velo della rimozione che sembra annebbiare la stragrande maggioranza degli editorialisti e dei dirigenti politici e quindi gran parte dell’opinione pubblica: in una sorta di incoscienza, tipica di chi guarda gli sconvolgimenti prodotti da un ciclone e si chiede come mai sia potuta accadere una “calamità” del genere.

UGANDA HAS POTENTIAL TO FEED 200 MILLION PEOPLE – US ENVOY
20 settembre 2017
The US ambassador to Uganda, Deborah Malac, has described Uganda’s agricultural potential as the best in Africa with low temperature variability and two rainy seasons supporting multiple crop harvests per year.
“Uganda’s fertile agricultural land produces a wide range of food products and has the potential to feed 200 million people in the region and beyond,” she said.
“Uganda has one of the lowest fertiliser application and improved seed rates in Sub-Saharan Africa. Increased responsible use of agricultural inputs is needed to increase agricultural productivity and promote agricultural-led economic growth in the country,” she said.

For more than two decades Acholiland in northern Uganda suffered at the hands of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). The LRA fighters, led by Joseph Kony, stand accused of killing 100,000 civilians, and forcing nearly two million people to flee their homes and seek refuge in overcrowded IDP camps.
The most distressing characteristic of the conflict was the fact that the LRA filled 90 percent of its ranks through the systematic forced-conscription of children. The United Nations described the conflict as a war fought by children on children.
