Try this one it's very interesting about it
I'm uneasy about it, I won't be giving any money. All my spare money is going to support another worthy cause closer to home anyway at the moment.
Thanks for all your responses. I wont be giving any money right now. Might write a letter to our government asking if we are assisting in this case at all. At least the word is out there and more people are becoming aware of these issues.
It does become overwhelming when we think of all the people that need help. In every country. We can each only do what we can, but at least it is something. One small thing is better than nothing at all.
p.s I was just thinking you dont have to buy the posters etc they are selling, if you want to support this why not make your own posters and put them up the night they are planning to do this?

I have posted a link to Invisible Children's website where they have answered questions re finances, the Ugandan military etc if anyone is interested.
I wont support them.
I totally support taking Kony down. But they are pushing for military action.
The army they will be fighting, will be the children they want to save.
I find the video very annoying and more about showmanship than the truth..but I think I am alone.
I appreciated the video. I knew of some of the problems yet never knew of Kony.
I am glad that so many people are more aware today. It's very sad and these children need rescuing and doing nothing in the fear that the issue is to large is just awful.
We need to do something. If that means making more aware then so be it. If it means unfortunately going into fire against the LRA (most being victims themselves) then unfortunately (I mean this in the greatest sympathy) that it maybe the only option to prevent thousands more families being pulled apart, destroyed, thousands more children loosing loved ones, being raped, using weapons, fighting etc
It will never stop unless someone or something breaks the cycle.
These children do matter it can't go un noticed any longer.
I did donate and am happy too. We donate a few thousand a year to different charities (mostly for children organizations and all in AUS) I never imagined that the money would go directly to the children but more so to those who are pushing for their freedom. That to me is worthy.
Not all can give and may choose not too but making more people aware is brilliant.
I too support taking him down,. but agree- not sure about the military links and I dunno have a funny feeling.
At the same time I thnk its good to see so many peple moved to try and change things.
It's not just the Ugandan military, their financial report states that 8.4% of that 30% (and 8.4% is a lot in a multi million dollar charity) is given to MEND who are a militia organisation thinly veiled as a political organisation working towards getting a share of central Africa's oil.
