Joseph Kony and his rebel commanders have abducted thousands of children and are terrorizing three countries in Central Africa. Millions of people were alerted to this situation through Invisible Children's viral internet video, Kony 2012. Invisible Children (www.invisiblechildren.com) is a movement seeking the arrest of Kony and a permanent end to these atrocities. On Sunday, September 30, at 7:00 p.m. the New England team representing Invisible Children will be at the Ilsley Memorial Public Library Meeting Room to present a screening of the film The Rescue, which details the Lord's Resistance Army's actions in Congo, and the attempted peace talks between Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army and the political leaders of the affected countries in 2008. The Ugandan Advocate on team New England is named Oyella Jane. She is a 23-year old student studying Quantitative Economics at Makerere University in Uganda, although she is taking a year off from school to advocate for those living in LRA-affected communities. Jane is a survivor of LRA violence, and will speak to her life growing up in the conflict region during the presentation. All are invited to this free event. Invisible Children will have merchandise available for sale. For more information please contact Tim Franklin at 349-4137.
