Have you seen the video that went viral last week? Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, has been forcing thousands of children to murder others and a massive campaign, Kony 2012-Invisible Children
has been created to get the attention of Washington. The goal is to get him arrested and brought to justice. Most American's have never heard of Kony, so this campaign is designed to make him famous. The video urges everyone to sign a pledge to bring him to justice in 2012 and to plaster his face across the nation on April 20th. The video is 29 minutes long, but worth a watch. I would imagine this could turn into a major event in Washington DC. I will post details as the date approaches.
Update March 13, 2012:
Over the past week, there's been a lot of criticism and questions circulating about the Invisible Children organization. Ben Kingsley, the CEO of the non-profit, has released a new video
to address these questions.
