There is no doubt that the thirty-minute video 'Kony 2012' by the advocacy group Invisible Children has raised much awareness regarding the relatively under-reported atrocities committed by the Ugandan rebel group the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). It is also true that the video, which boasts of over 80 million views on YouTube so far, has been subjected to much - I think fair – scrutiny. Criticism of the motives, accuracy and objectivity of the video's makers has stirred a rather healthy debate on the issue, where alternative ways forward were discussed.
