Kony 2012

This time I am not going to write about clothes or nail polish. This time I'm blogging to raise awareness for the Kony 2012 campaign. It has the goal to make Joseph Kony, the leader of the "Lord's Resistance Army", famous to show the politicians of the world that we want him arrested. The LRA exsists since it was founded by Kony 1987 in Uganda. The members abduct children and force them to become child soldiers or sex slaves. They have maimed and tortured people and they are terrorizing civilians in Africa. Experts say that it is really difficult to understand the group's aims and goals, it seems that they mainly want to terrorize and scare innocent people.Since 1987 they have abducted more than 10000 children and often they have killed their families or forced the kids to kill them. This horror needs to be stopped, we have to stand up for what is right!The problem is that until now nobody really knows who Kony is and the goverments of most countries are unwilling to spend money and energy on chasing him. If we could tell the people about Kony and his crimes and demand that our goverments help Uganda to catch him and put him into prison they will have to listen.
We live in the world of the internet. It is really easy to inform many people within seconds. Please take your time to watch this video and maybe share it on Facebook, Twitter, your blog and everywhere else.
