A 27 minute video has suddenly gone viral, and you should know how it’s changing the world in less than 27 minutes (video below).
The purpose of the video:
The purpose of the video is to stop the rebel group the LRA’s (Lord’s Resistance Army) leader Joseph Kony. By making people aware of Joseph Kony, they hope to turn your awareness into action.
What You Need to be Aware of:
Joseph Kony is the leader of the LRA, and fights to keep himself in power. His soldiers: kids, half your age.
These kids are abducted and forced to join his army. For 26 years he has been abducting kids into his rebel group. BOYS are turned into child soldiers, and GIRLS become sex slaves. He makes them mutilate people’s faces and even forces them to kill their own parents. And it’s not just a few kids.
It’s not 100 kids. Not 300. Not even 1,000.
Be aware: Joseph Kony has an army of child soldiers that need to be rescued.
Jason, the director, is good friends with Jacob who was one of those children. Jacob had managed to escape, but his brother was killed in the process. Jason promised Jacob he would do everything in his power to help.
This is his promise at work.
^^ Director Jason Russel and Jacob^^
Jacob and other free child soldiers now work with Invisible Children to provide awareness about the plight of these children. They have been active for a number of years. They have built schools, they have created jobs and even built an early warning radio network. The building of these structures did not come from help from the government, but from donations from people who cared; people like you and I.
After 8 years of activism, the United States government has heard the voices of 100,000 young people and committed 100 military advisors to Africa to assist in the removal of Joseph Kony from the battlefield. Joseph Kony has since gone deeper into hiding and in order to increase support and keep up the military effort this video has gone viral.
^This video will expire on December 31st 212^
- In order for Joseph Kony to be arrested The Ugandan Military has to find him.
- In order to find him they need technology and training to find him in the jungles.
- In order to get that, they need the U.S. advisers.
- In order for the U.S. advisers to be there, the U.S. must deploy them.
- In order to get the US to deploy them, the U.S. must here from US
What you can do:
Make him famous!
Make him visible! Tweet about him! Spread this video! Put him in your Facebook status! Write, call, email, tweet, facebook, facetime, skype, pigeon mail one of the 20 law makers and Media Personalities, on their website that you intend to:
MAKE KONY FAMOUS
COVER THE NIGHT
On April 20th 2012, there will a world wide effort at sundown, by Make Kony Famous activist to blanket their town with Kony 2012 posters, stickers and tags. When people wake up that morning, their streets will be littered with Kony 2012 information.
So use Facebook for something else than just promoting yourself, don’t just tweet today’s funny quote, don’t just comment “lol” on a Youtube video. Use today’s technology to make a difference, save lives, and make a man famous.

Millions of students, fact hunters and general knowledge buffs are set to receive a shockon Wednesday when the digital encyclopaedia Wikipedia shuts down for 24 hours in protest at internet piracy laws being considered by US legislators.
Jimmy Wales (link may not work during blackout), the founder of the world’s fifth most popular website, is instituting a global “day of darkness” for the English-language version of Wikipedia, which will see its 25 million daily users blocked until 5am on Thursday.
Wales is calling for a “public uprising”
against the stop online piracy act (Sopa) and protect IP, two US bills which he has called
“destructive legislation” that, if passed, would “endanger free speech and set a frightening precedent of internet censorship for the world”.
Others joining what has been dubbed “black Wednesday” include the user-generated content recommendation website Reddit, technology news site Boing Boing, and the Cheezburger network of humorous sites (read more)

LAS VEGAS — The nation’s newest Miss America is a 23-year-old Wisconsin brunette who had long conversations with her family mulling whether or not to make her father’s jail time for mail fraud the heart of her campaign in the beauty pageant.
While her competitors pushed platforms including promoting the health benefits of milk and protecting the environment, Laura Kaeppeler (KEP’-ler) said
she wants children of incarcerated adults to feel less alone, to have mentoring and as much of a relationship with their parents as possible.
“There are many of you out there – and I was one of them – but it doesn’t have to define you,” Kaeppeler told The Associated Press after winning the crown and $50,000 scholarship on Saturday night.
To win, she said beauty queens and politicians should remember they represent all Americans, sang an opera song and strutted in a white bikini and black evening gown.

We’ve all heard piece of the “I Have A Dream” speech from the historic March on Washington. The popular DJ and vlogger Jay Smooth put together a video of some of the less-quoted passages from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., including some pointed criticisms of the Vietnam War and on the riots that rocked America’s cities in the 1960′s.
1. Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.
2. Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.
3. An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
4. We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.
5. Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
6. A riot is the language of the unheard.
7. Don’t let anybody make you think that God chose America as his divine, messianic force to be a sort of policeman of the whole world. I can hear God saying to America, “You’re too arrogant! And if you don’t change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power, and I will place it in the hands of a nation that doesn’t even know my name.
8. I speak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken. I speak as an American to the leaders of my own nation. The great initiative in this war is ours. The initiative to stop it must be ours.
9. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.
10. What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. And justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.

New York (CNN) — “Expect us” is the favorite tag line for an endless stream of Web videos posted by the Internet collective known as Anonymous. It’s a promise and a threat. In 2011, galvanized by the national Occupy movement, Anonymous delivered.

UC Berkeley physicist, and longtime climate skeptic, Richard Muller has finally gone on the offensive, publicly admitting he was wrong to doubt global-warming data in a piece for The Wall Street Journal.
The outspoken professor, who gained notoriety in the climate-denial community for his rants against Al Gore and fueling the fire on Climategate, decided to take matters into his own hands earlier this year by creating an independent study to assess specific objections raised by climate skeptics.
