It was made by the charity Invisible Children, and aimed to use social awareness and activism to help bring an end to the reign of terror caused by Ugandan Warlord Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), who were notorious for kidnapping young children and forcing the boys to become soldiers and the girls to become sex slaves and wives to the soldiers.

For those of you who abstain from social networking sites, or just haven’t seen it, the KONY 2012 video is about the notorious Ugandan dictator Joseph Kony, who is guilty of some of the worst war crimes and human rights violations in the modern world, and at this moment in time, is at the top of the International Criminal Courts ‘most wanted’ list.
