Trending Topics: Kony 2012
On March 5, Jason Russell aired the
Kony2012 YouTube. The production imme
diately went viral and received attention on
Twitter, Facebook, and the national news.
The Kony2012 is partnered with a foundation
called “Invisible Children.” The foundation
and movement both strive to help the brutal
violence and kidnapping of Ugandan chil
dren to be soldiers in the Lord's Resistance
Army, which is allegedly organized by rebel
leader Joseph Kony. The movement raises
awamesss by using a campaign strategy and
wearing t-shirts with Joseph Kony's face of
it. The YouTube video, which tells children's
horror stories about the LRA and the strate
gies used to catch Kony, received more than
38 million hits on YouTube and trended on
Twitter with the hash tag #StopKony.
Although the production was an eye opener
to many individuals in the United States, the
people of Uganda were not pleased with the
production, according to A1 Jazeera reporter
Malcom Webb on NYDailyNews.com.
“For many people here, the video is sim
ply puzzling,” Webb says in his video report.
“It contains footage of an American man, his
son, and it documents events that happened
here, in northern Uganda, years ago,” NY-
Many critics in Uganda and the U.S. have
posted videos and stated their opinions on so
cial networics about the factual inaccuracy of
the Kony2012 YouTube video production.
“I first became aware of the movement on
Twitter. I noticed immediately that there were
some things that did not add up in the situ
ation," Fayetteville State University senior
Alyssa Debonair stated
Dr. Beatrice Mpora, the director of a com
munity health organization in Uganda, told
the Telegraph that the video “can cause more
problems than help us. There has not been a
single soul fi'om the LRA here since 2006,”
she said. “Now we have peace. People are
back in their homes. They are planting their
fields. They are starting their businesses. That
is what people should help us with,” the NY-
“It is important that we as youth research
things that go on in the world. I am glad 1
did my research before I fully supported the
Kony2012 movement,” Debonair stated.
