Gulu Walk- Children of Uganda

A few months ago the Arthouse Meetup group saw the movie War Dance which was based in Northern Uganda. As the film depicted the war torn region and conflict, the struggle these children endure became close to all our hearts. The Gulu Walk which promotes awareness about the conflict in N. Uganda is an annual walk held all over the nation. Please consider participating this year and invite anyone you know to take part. The peace process in war-torn northern Uganda between Ugandan government and Lord's Resistance Army has broken down a few months ago, and we need your voice and support to reinstate Peace talks and protect the children of northern Uganda. Together can we make a difference in what former U.N. Under-Secretary General of Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland called “the world’s most neglected humanitarian crisis” and “one of the biggest scandals of our generation.” Last year GuluWalk Day, over 30,000 people in 100 cities in 16 different countries took to the streets to urge the world to support peace in northern Uganda. This year, we like to encourage you, your friends, and family members to walk with us on October 25 to tell the world about Africa's longest-running civil war and speak out for the Uganda's forgotten children. Date/Time: Saturday, October 25, 2008 @ 2:00 pm (PST) Location: Colina del Sol Park (corner of 52nd St. and Orange Ave.) Please visit ( and click on "GuluWalk (San Diego)" image for more details.
There is NO fee, this is a walk to raise awareness!! There will be music and stories from those who have survived the brutality.

    Even though strictly speaking this wasn’t a movie event, I found it quite worthwhile to attend. I was sad to learn more about the situation with children in northern Uganda as well as several other locations in Africa. I will continue to support organizations such as Oxfam & Doctors Without Borders as well as Gulu Walk.

    Sorry about the mix up in time when I changed the venue. It's 2 p.m. not 7.

    I have attended the Gulu walk for the past two years, I am sorry that I will be unable to attend this year. It has always been inspiring to bring about awareness to what is going on. There are so many amazing people at the event, and the music is wonderful!
