Joseph Kony 2012

Joseph Kony is one of the world’s worst war criminals and I support the international effort to arrest him, disarm the lRa and bring the child soldiers home.

Didn’t have 30 minutes to watch the video? Let me sum it up for you.

1) A man name Joseph Kony is a leader of a rebel group called the LRA in Central Africa.

2) Kony uses his army of rebels to abduct children from villages. The children (mostly boys) are then forced to hurt or kill their loved ones or friends. The girls are used as sex slaves for the rest of the rebel army.

3) The year 2012 is the year Kony will be taken out of the picture. By spreading this video and other media across the nation, the people/news/government will remain focused on Kony.

4) The goal of this whole movement is to make Joseph Kony famous. By tweeting/contacting celebrities and calling government officials you are helping spread the word about Kony.

TL;DR Joseph Kony is bad…and you need to tell everyone you know

–Personal Edit: Seeing that this is, and probably will be the highest comment, can I just encourage you to bookmark the video and watch it sometime later. The way the filmmakers made this video is truly breathtaking. I know you’re probably busy right now, but just some time later today just give yourself 30 minutes to watch this video and perhaps share it. Stay classy fellow redditors.
