"Start making Kony famous today, but all of these efforts will culminate on one day; April 20th, when we cover the night. This is the day when we will meet at sundown and blanket every street in every city 'til the sun comes up. We will be smart, and we will be thorough. The rest of the world will go to bed Friday night and wake up to hundreds of thousands of posters, demanding justice on every corner."
Joseph Kony is a Ugandan guerrilla group leader, head of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a guerrilla group that is engaged in a violent campaign to establish theocratic government based on the Ten Commandments in Uganda. The LRA, under Kony, has earned a reputation for its actions against the people of several countries, including northern Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Sudan.
The LRA has abducted and forced an estimated 66,000 children to fight for them, and has also forced the internal displacement of over 2,000,000 people since its rebellion began in 1986. Children are abducted from their homes and turned into sex slaves and soldiers, forced to murder and maim from a young age. Ugandan children live in fear of being taken, in fear of being forced to kill their families and friends, and in fear of their own deaths. Kony must be stopped.
