Joseph Kony has been known for years as the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army. This army of his is known for attacking and terrorizing Uganda and other African countries for more than 25 years. They have killed thousands and have been kidnapping children as young as ten years old to be trained as armies.
On Wednesday, a campaign and a film about Kony came out in the Internet. The Kony 2012 campaign was launched by a group called the Invisible Children. The aim of the campaign is not make Kony famous, but to make everybody know what he is doing and help them arrest him.While others question the timing of the campaign's release, filmmaker James Russell said that the organization has been working on the film for nine years as narrated by aresearch paper writing service. Furthermore the timing was not important and they had decided to launch the campaign. While he has been indicted by the International Criminal Court for his violations of the human rights, Kony still roams free.
According to sources, Kony and his army are now seeking refuge in South Sudan, Central African Republic and also the Democratic Republic of Congo. The army is always on the move and just comes out into the public whenever they are in need of food and other supplies. The Human Rights Watch has also released that Kony and his army do not have an ideological purpose for doing these things anymore. The group has been quiet since 2011, but they began attacks again in early 2012. Since January, the group has already killed 35 people and abducted 104.
The Kony 2012 campaign hopes that this initiative can lead to the arrest of warlord Joseph Kony and bring justice to the lives he had destroyed and taken away.
