If I’d ask you, who is Joseph Kony, you wouldn’t know. You should. And that’s why I’m going to tell you about him.
Joseph Kony considers himself as a good Christian.
He abducts kids, little girls go in prostitution, little boys become kid soldiers and are forced to do horrible things, things a kid isn’t supposed to do. Neither is an adult, no one is. He started the LRA, Lord’s Resistance Army. 20.000 kids have been kidnapped, this needs to stop. And that’s why we need to Make Kony Famous. Let the world know about the horrible things he does, and the thousands of children and parents suffering.
So come together, at the April the 20th. That is the day, we will cover the night. People in all kind of cities, all over the world meet at sundown & cover the city with posters and stickers of Joseph Kony. To Make Kony Famous. If you want to help these kids and parents, cover the night at 4/20/2012.

Graphic: Gaddafi forces prepare for Tripoli battle
Army units, militiamen and foreign mercenaries loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi are fortifying key positions in Tripoli, with tanks guarding major roads in an attempt to stem a revolt that is moving closer to the Libyan leader’s bastion in the capital.
Crisis in Libya: ‘We will stand and fight’
Gaddafi clings to power as battles rage across Libya
Just when we thought things were getting better. This could be bad if someone doesn’t step in.
Post with 1 note
As of now, the Libyan rebels have liberated the eastern part of Libya. Gaddafi has become more enraged, as has become evident through his increasing attacks on the rebels, both verbally and physically. The rebels pushing into western Libya are still suffering and dying. Though Gaddafi’s forces have started to lose faith in him, he still has a loyal following who are protecting him and the treachery his dictatorship brings.
President Obama has come out with a strong opposition to Gaddafi’s act, however troops are still not being sent into Libya. Many argue that we shouldn’t send troops into Libya. I am not completely in disagreement with them, but something must be done. Getting government forces involved brings complications into the entire problem, but as people, not citizens of America, but citizens of planet Earth, we need to do something. As soon as violence ceases, I hope to see the Peace Corps, Red Cross, and other organizations flooding the area with people who want to help out. Those who cannot go to foreign countries, help with donations, or if you can’t afford that, just spend time helping increase awareness.
Security forces who have joined the uprising against the rule of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi carried the flag of Libya’s monarchy in Benghazi on Wednesday.
President Obama on Wednesday condemned Moammar Kadafi’s bloody crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in Libya, saying he had ordered his administration to prepare “a full range of options” to handle the crisis as the death toll rose into the hundreds. Although Obama described the violence in Libya as “outrageous” and “unacceptable,” he did not specify any potential actions against Kadafi and did not call on him to resign. A senior administration official said the White Housedoes not want to give Kadafi a chance to cast himself as a patriot resisting American pressure

‘At the heart of the city where he launched his rise to power, Muammar Gaddafi’s indignity is now complete. In little more than three days of rampage, the rebels in Libya’s second city have done their best to wind the clock back 42 years – to life before the dictator they loathe.’
The Full Video: Bahrain’s army deliberately kills peaceful protesters
Fast forward 3 minutes in.
I feel physically ill after watching this. Please be warned that it is graphic but this is the cold reality of war. This is the cost of dictatorship. This is the length people will go to for their freedom.
If you can’t watch it, then please just spread the word.
It is unfathomable to me that this still happens in the world.
Seeing a few people get shot broke me. I can’t fathom 200.
This one comes from Bahrain, not Libya. This stuff is happening all over the place.
