Kony 2012

A huge new craze has swept the blogosphere and social network sites these last three days around Joseph Kony, leader of the Lords Resistance Army, who has gained huge notoriety due to a thirty minute long documentary relaying his crimes. This sick man has displaced over 2.1 million people and captured thirty thousand children. After capture, he forces the boys into becoming child soldiers Their initiation ceremony is murdering their own parents.
'For twenty six years  Kony has been kidnapping children into his rebel group, the LRA. Turning the girls into sex slaves and the boys into child soldiers. He makes them mutilate people's faces, and he forces them to kill their own parents' Kony 2012
This quote tells how the LRA, powerful in Uganda, Congo and South Sudan, gains power. Kony has been placed first on the world's most wanted criminals by The Hague. There is a mass poster campaign planned for the 10th of April in Trafalgar Square to promote awareness, not power or fame, of Joseph Kony.
