Joseph Kony

The KONY 2012 campaign started as an experiment. Could an online video make an obscure war criminal famous? And if he was famous, would the world work together to stop him? Or would it let him remain at large?

The experiment yielded the fastest growing viral video of all time.  3.7 million people pledged their support for efforts to arrest Joseph Kony.

Thousands rallied in Washington, DC and the KONY 2012 Global Summit on the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) brought together seven leaders from international institutions and the affected region to talk about what they are doing to stop Joseph Kony and his rebel army.

The KONY 2012 experiment sparked more international activity focused on stopping the LRA than ever before. But Kony is still out there.

Kony 2012 is the fastest growing viral video in history.

RAW

http://www.raw.info/if …  It’s time to start thinking before we eat.

 

IF we were to stop the factory farming of animals:

  • Billions of animals will benefit from the end of the confinement, overcrowding, excessive growth rates and overwork that characterise intensive farming.
  • And millions of hungry or malnourished people could benefit too.

That’s why Raw has joined ‘Enough Food for Everyone IF’ – a powerful and diverse group of 80 organisations working together to lead the fight against the global hunger crisis.

Join the campaign… See an end to global hunger and factory farming too – Sign up here: http://www.raw.info/take-action

Day-to-day we can help… Think before you eat.

  • Stop polluting your body with contaminated factory-farmed meat.
  • Buy local, high-welfare meat and dairy, reduce your consumption of animal protein, buy local, seasonal food and  reduce food waste.
