I'm not one to get swept along in the whole "let's do something right and get behind this cause" activist phenomenon that the internet has introduced to us, however this one caught my eye.

I haven't watched the video but I have ran into this group before in 2008/09. They had a very emotive video then too and had a plan for a sleep over in Edinburgh city centre on a friday night then a demo the saturday.

I know people can be cynical about these things but this is a long running African conflict that is destroying so many young lives. Similar things were happening in Sierra Leone and the British forces took over that situation easily. I'm not alway pro-intervention but in this case there is a road map that shows a highly trained military force could rout the terrorists.

I'm sceptical about Invisible Children as a charity, there are a lot of question marks over their finances and they have refused to co-operate with the Better Business Bureau. Also the fact that they support Military intervention in Uganda is a bit strange for a charity, despite the fact the LRA haven't been active in Uganda since 2006. The whole thing strikes me as an over emotive attempt to solve something that very few people understand.

This website has some pretty depressing info about Invisible Children - http://visiblechildr...r.com.nyud.net/

Dodgy Ugandan kidnaps kids to make an army.
Makes kids disfigure other kids and instructs them to kill their parents.
Makes sex slaves of the young women that he kidnaps.
Sellotapes dead budgies to perches and sells them to blind kids.

The video is created to make him well known so folk can identify him.

Spammed all over Pussbook, got 5 minutes in and was bored. Flicked to the end to see if there was a big finale alas just a beg for money.

People now feel like they are intelligent and making a difference if they post it.

Interesting articles, a good read. I kind of knew a bit about the LRA prior to this whole thing, but I do support that campaign (even if the "he must be captured by teh end of 2012!!!1111" bit is just a tad sensationalist) rather than the charity. I'm not giving my money to it however.

My Facebook has become fairly unbearable (thankfully I didn't share the video on Facebook) with everyone now an expert on what's going on. I don't like playing atrocity Top Trumps but I don't recall any relief over Mladic's capture last year, instead most people I know ignored it and couldn't give a shit about what happens to him.

Wow this shits insidious, there's a big event taking place in Glasgow next month for it, and I've just spent 40 minutes battling angry Facebook comments from folk who are going to it.

Anyway turns out Invisible Children like to take all your money, keep 70% for themselves and the rest goes to Uganda so they can buy guns and rescue child soldiers by SHOOTING THEM.

The amount of folk on Facebook who don't seem to have a clue about this is hilarious. A lot of them seem to think that posting a video up is sure to get him caught and theres also a campaign running which involves covering Glasgow in Kony posters to raise awareness. But raise awareness to who? These people go on about "catching him and arresting him". What they fail to realise is that if a guy has been going around Africa, kidnapping kids and making them do so many horrible things then theres a pretty good chance the government, the International Criminal Court, Interpol etc. already know about it. So many people (usually the types that spend most of their time on Facebook) who probably hadn't heard of Kony this time yesterday have climbed up onto a very high horse today when anyone dares to challenge them as to what difference posting one video will REALLY make. c***s.

Very powerful video. Though the more things you read about Invisible Children as a charity, the ropier they sound.

I obviously agree that Joseph Kony is a bad, bad b*****d. But from the sounds of it, the LRA haven't been active in years and Kony is hidden in the forests of Congo starving and with a depleting army.

Everyone on facebook's going on about "We'll stop at nothing until this man is caught" Stop at nothing meaning "we'll change our profile pictures until the hype dies down"

I predict this will go the way of most Facebook fads and die off by Monday, the amount of utter morons talking about this video but who know nothing of the UK's politics nevermind any sort of global issue is really starting to become laughable. And if i've read the right post on the event page then Broccoli Dog you've already met two of them
