KONY 2012

I'm sure everyone seen this video. As you know the Kony 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice. This video is now the fastest spreading viral video of all time, with over 70 million and half a million comments to date. It has been splashed all over Facebook and Twitter.

People are aware about this campaign, but now the Kony 2012 campaign has been condemned time and time again. Many people are saying KONY 2012, is in fact a scam. There's a lot of haters try to bring it down. Well, this is what happening to the world right now~ yesterday you're a hero and today you're the bad guy.  You have to do your research don't just watch the video and assume that's the truth. If you watch the film and pay attention, it's all there. Well, as much as possibly could be squeezed into a 30 minute film. The film shows how this movement has taken place over the span of 10 years. They were involved in pressuring Obama to send the 100 troops that are there now. Essentially, they have been involved this whole time. My personal opinion is that they want to do the right thing.

I will say that it isn't a scam.  I'm glad that it's finally becoming a well known problem...and I have to say the 30 minutes video, directed by and starring filmmaker Jason Russell has been the nucleus of the campaign. Well written, beautifully produced and brilliantly executed. It is one effective video. This guy is awesome! If everyone was like him, the world would be a better place~

I don't know which posts you read but the ones I read did not say it was a scam.

It's just that the groups support military action. If military action is taken, the children will be harmed because they are Kony's army. It's like funding an army to take out another army of children.

Maybe you have read this: http://visiblechildren.tumblr.com/post/18890947431/we-got-trouble

He says if you believe they are doing the right thing, then you can support them but know what it is that you're supporting and sharing and spreading.
