KONY 2012

Kony 2012 Stop At Nothing

Celebrities like Justin Bieber, Emma Stone, Lady Gaga and Diddy have joined the viral campaign group "Invisible Children" to publicize Joseph Kony, a wanted war criminal.

If the name of Joseph Kony tells you nothing, you say that this is a matter of time, since several events are set in motion to put the spotlight this war criminal, but especially for him to finally grapple above.

An arrest warrant against him raged since 2005, but one that gathers crimes against humanity (rape, abduction of children as soldiers, looting, sexual slavery, murder, etc..) Is still at large. This story is true; unfortunately it's not a movie script.

The man who started all of this is called Jason Russell who travelled to Uganda in 2003 to make a documentary about the suffering happening there. People were suffering from hunger and danger all together. They can’t sleep at night because of the fear of getting abducted and are on a constant run. Who are they running from? And who wants to abduct them and why? It’s Joseph Kony. As I mentioned earlier, he is a rebel leader who kidnaps children; he gives the boys guns, makes them join his children army, makes them kill THEIR OWN parents and torture other people. As of the girls, they get raped and engaged into prostitution and sex slavery. As of now, 30.000 child have been abducted.
