Violations of our Human Bill of Rights from Night by Elie Wiesel 1. No one should be deprived of food or water at anytime. 2. Everyone is equal in every aspect of life whether its in religion,sex, race etc. everyone is equal 3. No one can be beaten or tortured in anyway Article.

Human Rights Watchdefends the rights of people worldwide. We scrupulously investigate abuses, expose the facts widely, and pressure those with power to respect rights and secure justice.

Although it provides a good amount of information on the history, politics, leadership, and NGO involvement in Uganda, it is biased against the Ugandan leadership for its crimes against humanity.
