INVISIBLE CHILDREN

INVISIBLE CHILDREN

Invisible Children uses film, creativity & social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony’s rebel war and restore the LRA-affected communities in central Africa to peace and prosperity.

This is such a great cause and very relevant to what we’ve discussed over the past few weeks in class.

    Definitely a great cause! But its interesting to see how much social media can spark interest into international relations. As we discussed in the history of Uganda, the LRA did not sprout up over night. I am curious to see how much impact this sudden spark in publicity will affect involvement (specifically from NGOs). I’m reminded of when Darfur exploded as a popular cause.

    Does anyone think that this film will actually have any tangible impact on the state organizations which are necessary to help bring justice? and will it be a short live fad, like the news coverage on most topics (Darfur from a human rights perspective, Egypt from a recent political perspective)?
