Who is Joseph Kony?

POLITICS - In the next two months you are likely going to hear the name of Joseph Kony... but you won't know who he is.

Now is your chance to learn.

If you've never heard of Joseph Kony (but maybe you've heard of the LRA) before today you are not alone.

Jason Russell's web-based film "Kony 2012" is calling for international action to stop the Ugandan war criminal Joseph Kony is pure digital activism and quite simply brilliant. The video is being spread at an exponential rate due to bloggers, journalists and activists who are putting their name on a list of millions seeking to publicize and make it clear the objective of stopping the war criminal Joseph Kony should be given priority.

Who is Joseph Kony?

If you didn't watch the video above and still don't know. Joseph Kony is a warlord from northern Uganda who for 3 decades has been abducting thousands of children, turning them into child soldiers and feeding his own power struggle. He takes children and turns them into mercenaries, butchers and rapists.

So much so that Joseph Kony is one of the most wanted war criminals in the world. The top of the list depending on which list you are looking at.

Joseph Kony and 4 of his lieutenants were all indicted by the International Criminal Court in July 2005... One is rumoured to be dead and one is known to be dead, but Kony and his other 2 lieutenants have all evaded capture and have yet to be brought to justice.
