Concerns about Kony 2012

In the last 24 hours the Invisible Children KONY 2012 campaign has gone gangbusters. Social media unleashed. Lots of hits. Lots of awareness raised. Very easy to be caught up with helping to spread this cause. It’s encouraging to see young people long for justice.

I’ve read a number of concerns that have been raised about the campaign.

Matt Anslow, who works for TEAR, has a comprehensive post with some of his concerns. I haven’t checked them, but the bottom of his post has links to a stack of other articles.

Graham Stanton – who alerted me to Matt’s article – has posted a few helpful reflections this evening. Check them on his tumblr page.
