Who or what is KONY 2012?

OK! A lot of people have been asking WHO or WHAT is KONY 2012? With 84,077,445 hits and counting and  over 1.3 million likes, KONY 2012 is becoming or should I say IS a world-wide phenomenon! KONY 2012 is a documentary which has spurred a virtual movement to bring one man, Joseph Kony, to justice.

The #KONY2012 and #StopKony hash tags has been trending on Twitter and the movement has already reached millions. If you haven’t seen the video or if you don’t know who Kony is, then educate yourself a little.


The documentary, KONY 2012, was produced by a group called Invisible Children. Filmmakers followed around a former child soldier named Jacob from Uganda. The film’s message is simple, to make the name Joseph Kony infamous, “not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice”.

Kony is the leader of a group called the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in central Africa. The LRA is widely credited with kidnapping over 30,000 children and forcing them to be soldiers or sex slaves.

Kony was indicted in 2005 for war crimes by an International Court but has eluded capture.

Together we can put an end to this monster’s heinous crimes against humanity. If you want to take a STAND and have your VOICE heard, please sign the pledge to help bring Kony to justice in 2012 @ www.kony2012.com  We CAN make a difference. #KONY2012
