We evangelicals note with deep concern and horror the persecution and systematic elimination by the representatives of the government of Uganda of those who oppose the injustice of the present regime. We are aghast at the utter disregard of human rights. The slaughter of many innocent villagers and some notable government and church leaders, including Archbishop Janani Luwum is shocking.

We note that the atrocities are reported to be especially directed against Christians at this time. We sorrow with them and all others who suffer.

We call upon Christians everywhere to unite in prayer and protest on behalf of the Christians and all others who suffer from the actions of President Amin and his government.

We further call upon our government and all people of goodwill to join us in worldwide protest.

And we call upon President Amin to renounce all injustice, oppression, and tyranny brought upon his people.
