Abia Community Dialogue, 7 July 2010

 The JRP Community Mobilisation team, in conjunction with radio station Mega Fm, held a community dialogue at Abia Primary School in Abia sub-county, Alebtong district, on July 11. Nearly 300 people attended the dialogue, including community members, the Local Council V vice-chairperson, the woman councillor, and representatives from civil society,

 The Abia dialogue focused on truth-seeking and truth-telling, and community members stressed the importance of knowing the truth to allow for healing and reconciliation. They also recommended the establishment of a national framework that allows for truth-telling at all levels and is linked to other programmes for victims, such as compensation programmes. During the dialogue, pupils from Abia Primary School presented a debate on whether or not the LRA deserve forgiveness.
