SORT BY Relevancy
It wasn't too long ago, that 'Kony 2012', a short film produced by Invisible Children, Inc..to raise enough awarenss to capture fugitive Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony was the cause celibre. The campaign resulted in Joseph Kony's name being on all media and on the lips of a lot of people. Almost 2 years later, he's still on the run. This year in 2014, the rallying cry is the 276 plus girls kidnapped several weeks ago by the lunitic group Boko Haram, and like 'Kony 2012' Bring Back Our Girls is in all media and on the lips of alot of people. Months from now will the results be the same? Yet more importantly, why is Bring Back Our Girls resonating with so many people when other issues, many close to home, hardly get a few paragraphs in a local newspaper? Lets talk about it...
I know the last episode was supposed to be jokes and stupidity, and eventually, we went down the Joseph Kony road and got sidetracked. I've uncovered some stuff about the Non-Profit organization who started this movement, and I gotta get some shit off my chest. Gonna be a short show. Basically, it's me spreading the word. I'm not really publicizing this show for that reason. If you tune in, that's awesome. If you don't, I understand.
In this show, we sit down with Caitlin Cheevers (President) and Randi Shaffer (Promotional Manager) of the Central Michigan University Chapter of Invisible Children. Caitlin and Randi will discuss the hugely successful KONY 2012 campaign from the inside. Our objective is to provide our listeners with a deeper understanding of the Kony 2012 campaign - its overall aims, and the challenges it has faced. Additionally, both Caitlin and Randi will talk about how this campaign has changed the nature of their leadership positions (both have been working with Invisible Children for a number of years, well before KONY 2012 put Invisible Children on the radars of young people). If you are intrigued by Invisible Children and the Kony 2012 campaign, tune in!
Our guest, Akbar Muhammad, International Rep. of the Nation of Islam and Minister Louis Farrakhan will discuss the controversy around the Kony 2012 film and the issues of Uganda and Africa. We will look at rebel leader Joseph Kony, his Lords Resistance Army, Ugandan Strong Man President Yoweri Museveni and his freindship with Imperialist America.

This is a very serious issue, and we want to put this out there once again for those of you that may have missed it the first time. Join Random this as we take on the issue of "Children of War" . Doing the research for this show has been emotional. Children are forced to be soldiers and often have been forced to kill their own families. There are 50 nations that support child soldiers!! There are over 200,000 child soldiers existing in Africa today. Bring your poetry, your comments and thoughts and join us.
