The Bigger Picture - “Kony 2012”
Topic: The “Kony 2012” video released last Tuesday by the charity organization of Invisible Children.
For those who still don’t know who Joseph Kony is, he is without a doubt a bad person.
And if you still haven’t seen the video, here it is.
If you want more information on the LRA/Kony, The Guardian’s Simon Rawles and Christian Bennett released a 9 minute video last year here.
I’m not here to talk about the charity, Invisible Children, itself, we all know about the skepticism about the financials there and it has been addressed multiple times, especially when it has been corrected by one of the founders of Invisible Children on CNN. And how there has been a photo found of the Invisible Children posing with guns, the photographer has responded with his own opinion as well - interesting interview by the Washington Post, I may say.
However, I’m here to address how this situation is very much a complicated one, and to share all the resources I’ve found. I hope to clarify and bring up other aspects of this conflict to my readers.
