KONY video nonsense

Please find below a link to a Pambazuka article on the downside of the KONY video.

My only comment is to repeat what National Public Radio (NPR) and BBC World News have reported from Uganda: that the video lack historical reference or context and therefore deprives the watcher/listener of a full understanding of the situation.

Why does a non-profit from San Diego tell us what is happening in Uganda after we have all witnessed the power of the Arab uprising via smart phone recordings of video etc? This tech-generation must insist on integrity and truth and allow PEOPLE to tell their story rather than accept a story second hand.

Why is Facebook eating what San Diego is cooking? Insist instead on the voices of Africans rather than buying what a Muzungu tells us.
