Although KONY 2012 brought to light the atrocities in Uganda, the campaign made it seem like a black and white situation, which is definitely is NOT. The situation in Uganda is extremely complicated, and there is no easy solution. Here are some useful videos and articles to help make people more aware of the situation in Uganda. Also some links showing the positives and negatives of the KONY 2012 campaign. Awaiting KONY2012 Part 2 to Premier April 3.


Uganda Rising

Uganda Rising sheds light on a hidden war, raising awareness about long-ignored atrocities. This film is phenomenal if you want to find out whats really happening/happened in Uganda, it does not simply or gloss over the situation. Although it was made in 2006 it is extremely useful in explaining the civil war and political situation in Uganda.

Kony screening stirs anger in Uganda

Nearly 70 million people have watched Kony 2012, but almost none of them have been Ugandans, since internet access in their country is spotty. Thus a charity held a public screening so that actual victims of the civil strife could see the video. The reaction? Extremely negative.
