If you've somehow escaped hearing about this then you can visit the website to see what it's all about. Kony 2012
I don't particularly want to talk about the Ugandan issue but more about the campaign.
I have found the whole reaction of Kony 2012 fascinating and would like your opinion too. It is almost cultish the way that people on forums, facebook and other places are defending the campaign and the organisers ... and equally on the other side of the fence there are people with another opinion.
It seems to be galvanising a generation who don't have to do that much to feel as if they are actually doing something. I think that part of it is brilliant. A few bucks a month, write to a culture or political leader, whack up a few posters is something that even the poorest college student can do.
So will it work? Will the pressure on the politicians build up enough that they go in and find and get this bloke? Is any attention to the cause a good thing? Or should the attention be directed elsewhere?
What are your thoughts?
