‘Kony 2012’ Group to Release New Film

    Kampala, UGANDA:  This picture made available 24 May 2006 by the Monitor media group in Kampala, Uganda, shows one of the world most wanted rebel chief, Joseph Kony of the Lord Resistance Movement. Joseph Kony, the elusive leader of Uganda's notorious Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and one of the world's most wanted men, says he wants to end nearly 20 years of brutal war, according to a rare video of the rebel supremo that emerged 24 May 2006. Kony says he is ready for peace with the Ugandan government in a DVD recording of an early May meeting between the LRA chief and members of southern Sudan's autonomous government who are trying to mediate an end to the conflict.

    Invisible Children, the nonprofit group that produced the hugely popular half-hour documentary Kony 2012 about Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army, will release a new film Monday to respond to criticism of its transparency and that it manipulates the facts in its efforts to end the murders and rapes committed by the child-recruiting LRA. The Kony 2012 video has been viewed more than 72 million times on YouTube, but with the new success comes critiques of its methods, including charges that the filmmakers fail to sufficiently protect the children who were shown in the documentary.
