Kony 2012: Campaign against African warlord goes viral, now who is he?(Read article summary)
The Kony 2012 campaign succeeded in making African warlord Joseph Kony infamous, but left out much of the background. Here's Monitor coverage on Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army.
Who is Joseph Kony? An online campaign aimed at raising awareness about the brutal warlord in Central Africa went viral yesterday, masterfully taking Twitter and Facebook by storm with a heartfelt video but not informing people deeply about the man and his context.
The campaign, run by the nonprofit Invisible Children in San Diego, is also raising money for projects aimed at protecting villages and rehabilitating child soldiers in the affected countries of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, and Uganda.
