[repeating what I said in the Kony 2012 article]
I just got invited to an event in Auckland City where people are going to parade down Queen Street with “Arrest Kony” banners.
This is in New Zealand: the county that’s practically on the other side of the world to Uganda and cannot do a damn thing about it.
The last time New Zealand protested in their own country about external affairs that they have nothing to do with and know nothing about was Occupy Wall Street
This must be getting big.
I’ll let you know if the parade actually goes through with it
As for the previous discussion regarding the moral worth of this protest; I agree with the evidence put forward that while awareness is worth being raised, there appears to be little reason to put any trust into the organisations that currently want to fight against Kony.
There is some deliberate misinformation going on and I won’t participate in any action until Snopes.com sheds more light on the situation.
