I'm surprised that we don't have a thread on this contentious issue yet. The charity Invisible Children recently posted this video with the aim of raising the profile of warlord Joseph Kony. Kony heads the Lord's Resistance Army and operates out of Southern Sudan, the Congo and Northern Uganda. His methods include the rape and murder of civilians as well as the use of child soldiers. The video can be found below.
However, there are criticisms of the charity. I've included a link or two below to articles which are worth reading before you come to any conclusions.

What are your thoughts? Is this an amazing cause or is it cynical propaganda? Has it lead to you taking any action?
