Kony 2012 Part II in Gannett

Not sure if the Hitler comparison is apt but whatever

Tonight, the tri-state area chapter of Invisible Children will screen their new documentary, Kony 2012 Part II in Gannett Auditorium. The film is a sequel of sorts to Kony 2012—which has received almost 100 million views on YouTube—and delves further into the myriad atrocities of the Lord’s Resistance Army and its leader, Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony.

Despite the best intentions, much criticism has been leveled against the film and Invisible Children, including accusations ranging from simple naiveté to neo-colonial warmongering. Not to mention the fact that Kony hasn’t been in Uganda since 2006 and there is literally no indication that President Obama plans to withdraw US advisors from the region. I would hope that these and other points are discussed at tomorrow’s screening.

Also, the leader of Invisible Children was caught beating off in public a few weeks ago.

Wednesday, April 4 @ 7:30pm in Gannett Auditorium
