About 20 of us splayed out on our backs, simulating death -- the Eiffel Tower a poetic backdrop. We're borrowing an ACT-UP tactic -- the die-in -- but the in-your-face urgency is muted. Where's the outrage? Where's the fear? Where's the media for that matter?
Our struggle must move away from the victimization narrative and begin to focus on positive stories. It doesn't help us when foreign journalists, bloggers, and allies come to Uganda simply to write about what is wrong with our country while ignoring our success stories.
