Uganda's estimated oil wealth has increased from 3.5 billion to 6.5 billion barrels,following new discoveries. || 80% of the land in Uganda is tilled by Women but they own less than 10% of it. || The Albertine grabben, where most of Uganda's oil is found, is also one of the most ecologically diverse regions in Africa.

In this issue, you will get updates on AFIEGO\'s ongoing case challenging the government human rights violations in the oil region and why we think an injunction against refinery project implementers would give Ugandans a chance to reflect, replan and reimplement the project without compromising the lives and dignity of the affected people. You will find out why it is important for you and the media to join the human rights and oil campaign; and why Members of Parliament should come up with a new comprehensive law on land acquisition and compensation. But above all, you will have a vivid glimpse into what the future holds if the refinery process continue violating human rights unabated; and hopefully you will be moved to do something about it.Enjoy reading the Energizer AFIEGO Newsletter June 2014
