Kony 2012

The last months have seen a campaign to end the conflict in central Africa go viral on the net. While the campaign drew some criticism, it has undoubtedly already enormously increased the awareness about the LRA, an organisation that has terrorised the local populations of four central African countries for now 25 years.

At the end of last month, the African Union has agreed to create a task force to capture Kony, the leader of the LRA. Although there is an international arrest warrant from the ICC out on him and his lieutenants, the ICC does not have any policing or military power to enforce the warrant.

If you wanted to make up your own mind about the campaign to end LRA violence in the region you can check out the latest video from Invisible Children HERE.
