Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), is perhaps the worst threat to the stability of any country on the continent of Africa and he needs to be stopped.
For more than 26 years, Kony has wreaked havoc across Uganda. He has forced tens of thousands of children into sex slavery and his child army. The LRA has internally displaced more then 2 million people since his rebellion against the Ugandan government began in 1986. He has been able to evade capture through pure fear. Some of his tactics have included cutting off the lips of those who dare to speak out against him.
A new viral campaign to raise awareness about Kony’s atrocities against children and people in Uganda and neighboring countries is being lead with a YouTube documentary called “Invisible Children.” The Twitter hashtag is (#kony2012). Celebrities Rihanna, Stephen Fry, and The Onion‘sBaratunde Thurston have all tweeted about the film, according to Fast Company.
Let us get the word out about what is going on with our brothers and sisters in Uganda and help the international community capture this terrorist. Check out the documentary about Joseph Kony below.
