Our Story

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. — President Barack Obama, 5th February 2008.

We are the young in heart, regardless of age--who respond to the Scriptural call: "Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed’’.

We are the young men and women who are not bound by the traditions of the past—men and women who are not blinded by the old fears and hates and rivalries-- young men and women who can cast off the old slogans and delusions and suspicions.

We are the Ugandans who are not trapped into who contributed what in the independence struggle and the NRA war but are more concerned about our future.

We are Ugandans who are fighting for progressive change in the running and management of the affairs of our country Uganda.

We are the employed like teachers, nurses and causal workers that cannot even meet our basic needs because of low wages and salaries.

We are the families forced illegally from our bibanja (land).

We are the unemployed Ugandans including the youth and the old.

We are the Ugandans who want a federal system of government i.e. establishment of regional governments for Uganda as well as for the East African Community.

We are the Ugandans who want religious and cultural leaders to perform their duties and exercise their rights without unconstitutional restrictions from the state.

We are the Ugandans from regions whose leadership have been handcuffed and disabled to ensure they do not promote the development of our regions.

We are the Ugandans from families without descent medical care, the families without decent homes, the families without good schools for our children, the families without adequate food and the families without descent income to sustain our families.

The times are too grave, the challenge too urgent, and the stakes too high—to permit status quo and today there can be no status quo. Therefore change is the only hope for a better Uganda.

It is time, in short, for a new generation of leadership--new men and women to cope with new problems and new opportunities.
