Making Joseph Kony Popular
March 17, 2012
Joseph Kony is a bush fighter wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. The Sydney Morning Herald wrote, ” Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army is a brutal Central Africa militia that has kidnapped thousands of children and forced them to become sex slaves, fight as child soldiers and kill family members during a 26-year campaign of terror.” “Invisible Children” is an organization that uses film, creativity and social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony’s rebel war and restore LRA-affected communities in Central Africa to peace and prosperity. They need for everyone to know who he is, or make him popular, in order to get attention drawn to them. Invisible Children says, “Our development professionals from Central Africa partner with local communities to implement and maintain education programs and economic initiatives in the war affected region. Recovering communities require stability when it comes to education and economic initiatives, but the ever-changing conflict demands innovative solutions and quick mobilization. Our initiatives attempt to meet the region’s need for both stability and flexibility.” in an interview with the 700 Club, Jason Russell, co-founder of Invisible Children said, “The children of Northern Uganda are being killed and brutalized, and the fascinating thing to us is that no one is telling this story. This tragedy gets no international attention at all. We are going to change that.” So let’s help falcons!
