“Our Country, Our Dignity, MY DUTY”
… was the theme at the National Civil Society fair that took place from 4th to 5th July 2013.
I was invited by the Uganda Youth Network to participate in a part of the event dubbed ‘the Talking Tent’ on July 5th, which, as per their letter to me:
[…] is an innovation aimed at creating an interactive space for young people to interface with outstanding and influential role model personalities in an informal tent setting. The idea of the talking tent is for the host to share with young people, who they ordinarily would not engage with, their thoughts and a reflection on a n issue in line with the theme.

My opinion can be summarised as follows: patriotism is bullshit, empower yourself.
