The Common Man's Charter

The Common Man's Charter was a document submitted to the Ugandan People's Congress by Ugandan President Milton Obote, forming a part of the country's so-called "Move to the Left". In it, he asserts several key principles of his vision for Uganda, including a commitment to democracy in the country. It built on agreements from the June 1968 conference, and was signed into law on the 24 October 1969, in an emergency meeting in Kampala. It was subtitled "First Steps for Uganda to Move to the Left",[1] heralding the start of the movement within Uganda.
