Joseph Kony

This is one blog post I want you all to read and I will have a link to it in all my other blog posts because it is one of the most important and best ways to spread this message worldwide.

Joseph Kony is the worlds most wanted war criminals who has been reigning terror for 26 years and is currently living in Uganda. He is the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and is one of the most brutal dictators. He has spent the past twenty six years adding to his rebel group (LRA) but through the most brutal means. He abducts children from their homes, while their sleeping which leaves them in constant fear.  He turns the young girls into sex slaves and the boys into child soldiers. By providing them with arms he forces them to mutilate people's faces and kill their own parents. Over the twenty six years roughly 30,000 children have been forced into this rebel group and now it's time to end this. 

A video has been created by the campaign group Invisible Children, as well as filmaker Jason Russell to "make Kony famous". The goals is not to praise Kony but to make everyone, worldwide aware of what he does and his brutality. 
Here is the video which I hope you will all take the time to watch:

This is also a link to the Invisible Children website which is the campaign group set up to free all the 'invisible' children that nobody knows about & to make them 'visible' to the rest of the world.

It is up to us to spread the message, because although the US are helping the cause at the moment if they feel as though we, the people of the world, do not want to see a change they will deport the army back to the US and stop aiding the search for Kony.

This blog has just been about raising awareness to the rest of you and I hope that it has done just that!
