Joseph Kony invisible children Much of the fervor over the Stop Kony 2012 movement and the popular viral video associated with the phrase has seemingly died down. But organizers from the group Invisible Children have released a follow-up video that addresses criticisms from Africans and others who suggested the group made Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony famous and didn’t attack the issue well enough.

Last month, Invisible Children released the video and it sparked international debate, exploding on all social media platforms and news outlets alike. The video, and the attention it received, was also spoofed by clever bloggers and pundits, a sticking point for those who felt the issue made a mockery of the heinous crimes Kony was accused of.

The sequel video, released earlier this morning, opened with varying clips of media talking heads discussing the impact of the movement and how fast it spread. The clip also makes big strides to focus more on Uganda and other African countries in which Kony’s Lord Resistance Army reportedly operates. According to the United Nations, Kony and his group have ramped up attacks in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic and South Sudan, upending over 4000 people from their homes.

Some critics felt the first video did nothing but make the Kony issue a moment from which Westerners could become famous. The sequel places the emphasis squarely on the issue and the global participation in attempting to bring Kony to justice. Kony is wanted internationally for war crimes and a 2011 U.S. military campaign to seize the warlord proved to be fruitless.
