So I’m sure at least some of you have seen this viral video or at least heard of it. Well, I’m a proud part of Invisible Children and I figured I’d share this on LPU. This video is to make Joseph Kony famous. Not to admire him or celebrate him, but to make him famous so the ENTIRE WORLD calls for his arrest.
I love the LPU so I figured I’d share it here. If the band saw this and also spread it, well… that’d just be cool!
Jacob is part of this. The Invisible Children founders met him when they first went to Africa and discovered ‘night commuting’ which first inspired them to do something and make their first video. He’s even come to America and toured with them when they promoted a new film.
And sorry, didn’t even notice someone else posted about this! But I’m glad you also support this cause! =)
And I just noticed Phoenix posted about Kony 2012 on twitter! I’m so pumped! XD
It’s common knowledge for years, that this atrocities are going on in Kongo. I thought, the International Community stopped that. And I was surprised and angry, when I saw the Kony video and recognized, that those people still have the power to do such bad things.
As reaction I wrote something to several parties and to our government. I’ve got a first respond. The politicans have to know, that their voter are interested in that case.
Kony 2012 is not only a social experience which will be used to monitor and review how and if “the masses” can be encouraged/pressured into a movement, and if it works, how effective will it become.
LRA and Kony haven’t even been in Uganda in 6 years now. They’ve moved on to other countries and as a group they are exponentially smaller having little effect on the region.
The renewed interest in Uganda is a strategy to get hold of the newly found oil in the country in the first half of 2010.
The film was first screened on June 22, 2004 at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego. After the film, Invisible Children Inc initiated a successful campaign, petitioning the United States Government for support, Invisible Children Inc in 2012 started a social media campaign to garner support and awareness of the LRA and Joseph Kony.
