Kony 2012 Stop Joseph Kony Prison Tote Bag
About this design:
Joseph Kony is an African guerrilla army warlord from Uganda, leader of the violent LRA ( Lord's Resistance Army ). Kony has been indicted for war crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court in The Hague since 2005, but remains at large and continues to terrorize innocents.
Among other heinous atrocities, the LRA and Joseph Kony are most renowned for actively kidnapping children in Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Sudan, and other surrounding lands and forcing them into his army. Despite years of this, Kony has remained relatively unknown to those generally unfamiliar with African politics....
.....until now! In 2012 a grassroots campaign was launched by a group known as Invisible Children to bring world awareness to Kony and his exploits, in an effort to spur international assistance and intervention on behalf of the exploited children of Uganda. A 30 minute video outlining their intentions went viral in early March, sparking an internet crusade to make "Kony" a household name.
Perhaps when Joseph Kony is finally entrenched in the social consciousness, the world will no longer stand idly by, and justice will be served. Stop Kony 2012!
