    I wholeheartedly agree with the cause, but this is a very informative article.

    http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/posts/...hdK3F.facebook

    Guest post: Joseph Kony is not in Uganda (and other complicated things)

    But in the new film, Invisible Children has made virtually no effort to inform. Only once, at 15:01 in the movie, over an image of a red blob on a map leaving Northern Uganda and heading West, is the fact that the LRA is no longer in Uganda mentioned, and only in passing:

    "As the LRA begain to move into other countries, Jacob [one of the children filmed in Northern Uganda in 2003] and other Ugandans came to the US to speak on behalf of all people suffering because of Kony. Even though Uganda was relatively safe they felt compelled to tell the world that Kony was still out there and had to be stopped."

    That's it, in a 30-minute movie. And with both the graphic and reiteration of how awful the LRA is, you might think reasonably "move into other countries" meant expanding rather than fleeing. In any case, the focus, seconds later, is on Invisible Children's activities in the U.S. at the time, not what was happening back in Africa. I can see why some of P. Diddy's followers might be confused.

    So everyone that gave a shit on FB didn't care come 4/20. I didn't see fliers posted anywhere. Someone did deface one of Minneapolis's most iconic structures though.

    I knew that fad wouldn't last long enough for people to still be apart of it by Coachella

    Almost everyone that participated in the "Cover the Night" were teenagers - i.e. Not so smart at marketing. The only Kony posters around are mostly isolated in Pike Place and hung up with no kind of rhyme or reason. It's like they have been there for years. Mostly there has been more Kony graffiti then posters and people hate graffiti. Just another Save Africa and Masturbate in Public example of the white man's burden.

    I didn't participate, but I'm sad I didn't see more activity. I don't support defacing public property, but I kind of hoped I'd atleast see people passing out flyers.

    There are people who wrote Kony 2012 in chalk all over the campus at the college I go to.

    You won't see on the news "Today, Joseph Kony was arrested because some college students wrote his name at a school in Oklahoma."

    Fucking slacktivists.

    People might have still cared by now but it became pretty obvious to most people how terrible the invisible children organization is when articles started coming out against the Kony movement and people realized that Kony isn't actually in Uganda anymore.

    I would assume wherever he is he is still a bad man.
