The Hold Out is over! After spending 262 hours in front of Senator Coburn’s office, we have received word that Senator Coburn has released his hold on the bill.
The long nights in freezing weather, the excess of pizza, and the shortage of showers have paid off.
This means the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act is going to the Senate Floor where it already has 62 co-sponsors. We don’t foresee any more obstacles to its passing.
We could not be more ecstatic. Thank you to our friends at Resolve Uganda who made this happen. And thank you to everyone who has supported the demonstration in person, in spirit, or in $$.
We did it!!!!
From Resolve Uganda: IN THEIR WORDS....
