It’s the video everyone is talking about: a campaign by the charity Invisible Children to raise awareness of Ugandan guerilla leader Joseph Kony and the use of child soldiers.

Watch it — but then also read all about how “The organisation behind Kony 2012 — Invisible Children Inc. — is an extremely shady non-profit that has been called “misleading”, “naive”, and “dangerous” by a Yale political science professor, and has been accused by Foreign Affairs of “manipulat[ing] facts for strategic purposes”, over at The Daily What.

    A lot of controversy today about the #Kony2012 video and social media campaign – I have written an article on Storify about whether indeed we should be supporting #Kony2012 and if we have turned a corner in online activism towards social vigilantism. Article @ http://storify.com/thestoryroom/should-we-be-making-kony-famous. I also invite discussion about media and online activism @ http://www.twitter.com/thestoryroom.
