Kony 2012

 

Kony 2012 is a film created by Invisible Children Inc. The director of Kony 2012 is Jason Russell. The film was made to promote the charity’s “Stop Kony” movement to make Uganda war criminal and the international criminal court fugative Joseph Kony internationally known, so he can be arrested in 2012. This film documents Invisible Children’s plan to arrest Joseph Kony and his brutal guerrilla warfare tactics with his rebel group Lord’s Resistance Army and the religions where they’ve been employed. The film has had over 85 million youtube videos.

Several celebrities have enforced the awarness compain such as Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Christina Milian, Nicki Minaj, Bill Gates, and Kim Kardashian. This campain is also in India, where several celebrities have enforced it.

An estimated 66,000 children became soldiers and 2 million people have been internally displaced since 1986. Once kidnapped children are used as pack mules, carrying LRA supplies until they are too weak to walk at which time they are killed or left to die. Joseph Kony claims to get strategic advice from angels. He says he is the spokesperson of God. He considers himself to be a good Christian.

You may hear that this is not real. You may have also heard that the Holocaust wasn’t real either. Well it would be nice if the world was one big happy place but the truth is it’s not, things like this really happen and if we don’t do something they will keep happening. I think this is real and we should support the cause. If you don’t believe in this then check out the video for yourself at:

They need your help to make him known.
