Kony 2012 campaign sparks backlash

Published

on



http://www.euronews.com/ The “Kony 2012” campaign to capture a Ugandan warlord has sparked a backlash in the country and in the United States. Some experts say the video over-simplifies the regional conflict and is patronising towards the people it is meant to help.

Emira Woods of the Washington-based Institute for Policy Studies said: “The overall message of video – that Americans, young, well meaning, can change the face of history – I think strips away understanding that is critical in 21st century of Africans, of people taking their destiny into their own hands.”

Ugandan authorities are also up in arms over the video that has gone viral on the internet, because they say the situation on the ground now is completly different.

Ugandan Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi said: “This is an account of a historical fact but that is not coming out. It gives the impression that Uganda is still at war, people are still displaced, those many children are still out sleeping on the streets in Gulu and of course this not true.”

But critics and Invisble Children, the group behind the video do agree that supporters of the project should broaden their knowledge about a series of complex issues.

    @grahamzhiser Here is the bottom line, and this I heard from a true Ugandan, not some Liberal, white "Do-Gooder" with his adorable son. And she said: Kony 2012 is bullshit! and she said what is happening in Syria is 3x worse.

Festival highlights the cost of Catholicism

Published

on



Young and happy, pilgrims from the four corners of the Earth are gathered in Spain for the Roman Catholic church’s third World Youth Day, presided over by Pope Benedict XVI.

However many in Spain are irritated at the invasion of the happy clappers at a time of austerity and a decline in church attendance.

On arrival the young faithful are greeted by the organisers with a veritable goody bag of kit to help them enjoy the festival, a rucksack brimming with discount vouchers for lodgings, transport and food at a total cost of over four million euros.
