COMMENT: Government should cease criminalizing peaceful activism

Picked up by security – Opiyo

COMMENT | Crispin Kaheru | We remain worried and averse towards the arrest of human rights lawyer and activist, Nicholas Opiyo.

From the timing, Opiyo’s arrest can easily be interpreted as part of a trend aimed at sending a chilling effect to democratic efforts in Uganda. It comes off as a premeditated plot to silence human rights defenders, democracy activists, journalists and other people who may be seeking to hold state agents accountable for their actions or inactions – especially in the context of the 2021 general elections in Uganda.

Without a doubt, some of the actions undermine the country’s peace and stability.

Government should cease criminalizing peaceful activism in whichever way it may present itself.

    I hope you have a very good deep read about this link above (American Jewish World Service).

    That’s one of the main Groups funding your so_called “Human Rights” groups here in Uganda (“clandestinely or Openly” for LGBTQI+ groups)….
    It is doing “what it does best” already in Kenya but it seems it has failed to wrestle & win Kenya’s constitution as regards to Kenya legalizing LGBTQI+ groups (specifically “same sex marriages” which are illegal in Kenya).

    “Dig deep beneath the surface” of the real “Masked issues” most socalled human rights advocacy groups (e.g Opio’s “Chapter 4” & others alike) do Not want to openly talk about, so they basically use “political undertones” to misdirect general “Naive”_public_attention away from what’s exactly truly happening “behind the scenes”____

    This is Not about 2021 Elections in Uganda; it’s about something very very deep beyond the politics of this African country or other African countries at large.

    I suggest you delve deeply into these 2 “good works” below articulately somewhat pened down to the dot to deeply sensitize the world about certain unknown secrets about the Jewish/American Global Agenda on Earth…

    _The “Spies of Gideon” (the Secrets of the Mossad)_
    by Gordon Thomas.

    _ “Spies Against Armageddon”_by Dan Raviv & Yossi Melman.

    (As you deeply internalize the Jewish Global agenda, do remember that in all this Super_power_Drama of sorts, Russia & China are really Not “excusable innocents” though.
    The Global_communist_bloc has “its own faults”, but that’s another area of deep introspection)

    (Some Secrets are just clearly out in the open before everyone to see. Unfortunately most humans find solace in contemporary Mass mediocrity & Hypocrisy & this in essence becomes Normality. That’s Why/How the subject of “Human Rights” has been & continues to be a very well “Veiled Global_mastermind Mind_Control_placebo_drug” that promises Heaven for the oppressed on Earth & yet, but this is very far from the actual Truth of the Matter.
    IF THE “HUMAN RIGHTS GLOBAL AGENDA” ON EARTH IS “DEARLY_LEGITIMATE”, WHY DOES THE “BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT IN U.S.A” CONTINUE TO “SCREAM OUT LOUD” FOR THE ABUSED HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE BLACK_RACE IN “THAT DEVELOPED NATION CALLED THE FREE LAND OF/FOR ALL HUMANS” ?
    (Are Black Africans really FREE there ??)

    And does the socalled UN Human Rights Charter really ever take reasonable account or substantial effort/s into seriously addressing the Abused Human Rights of/for Blacks in White Supremacist Powers_that_be…??

    Beyond Pan_Africanism upon Black Mother_Land, you had better widen your Global World View about this human rights issue. Don’t just primarily focus most of your attention here in, of & about Uganda’s political climate….
    There’s actually much worser places on Earth or Africa where human rights are so Grossly abused that people even die (are openly killed/assassinated) for merely daring to point a finger at human rights abused by a particular regime in question.

    So,
    When trying to be a Human Rights Voice for the socalled Oppressed, first take considerable time to delve deep into the “Unknown” about such a globally sensitive issue that is silently & secretly “known beyond its surface superficial hypocricies” in/by “some under_ground circles” which prefer the status quo to permanently stay as it is globally (the deceptive global mass notion/agenda that Human Rights for any Abused minority or majority group/s on Earth, is a fair legitimate call for equal/balanced social_economic or political benefit/s/”leveled ground/s” amongst humans of different classes on Earth.
    This is mere Global propaganda since time immemorial; world war 1, world war 2, Hiroshima/Nagasaki nuclear tragedy, “Desert Storm_Iraq”, Rwanda Genocide ’94_etc.
    the list is endless.
    Was this Not All Human Rights Abuse??; has it Ended? No!; will it ever end?? No!).

    So, make very rational, Not just “regional political shallow judgement/s” (the socalled context of the 2021 general elections in Uganda.)
