    I have also shared this on Facebook (after watching it from a friend's link) and ordered a bracelet. I came on here to see if someone else had posted it and if you hadn't OP, I was going to. Good work

    It's a long video, but it was so engrossing I didn't even realise how long it went for.

    Definitely worth the watch.

    Joseph Kony, #1 on the International Court's wanted list, is a warlord in Uganda that abducts children to train them to be part of his army.

    There is a campaign to try and assist with his arrest. The US have sent some military advisors to teach the Uganda authorities tactics to help them catch him. However, it needs to be kept as a topical issue to ensure they stay there.

    I watched it this afternoon and have shared on FB. It really is a touching and powerful clip.

    I too am ordering the kit with the bracelet.

    It started in the 80's... Why is it only starting to receive this type of media attention now?

    With the advent of social media (Facebook has more users now than the world had inhabitants 200 years ago) its easier to reach people (esp. younger people who may not be so interested in the usual types of news media). Plus Joseph Kony is not a threat to the world outside Africa so sadly no-one intervened, hence no media coverage, until now. Heres hoping he will soon be brought to justice.
