Finding Kony

Kony 2012 was an online video campaign that sought to create awareness and exert pressure on the international community to act against Joseph Kony, leader of the Ugandan Lord’s Resistance Army which is responsible for the longest running violent struggle in Central Africa. Kony 2012 succeeded in its campaign and in garnering international exposure for the victims of the struggle, but it is accused of portraying the African people as silent witnesses. Several women activists in Africa emphasize that the youth needs to know that Africa is there for them and perhaps this is exactly what will help the campaign against Kony succeed.
