    They showed us a video for a bourgeoisie human rights video about Joseph kony, a Ugandan rebel leader with child soldiers. The one thing I noticed about this video is its support for the Ugandan government which is a dictatorship and it's support from rich capitalists.

    The Invisible Children organization is kind of shady....particularly with their financial expenses. They are registered as a non-profit, make $13,000,000 in revenue (2011) and only put $3,000,000 of that revenue directly into helping Uganda (rebuilding schools, aid, etc.)

    So the rest of the money goes into film production & travel expenses?

    I think the whole program is bourgeoisie and warmongering.

    Also let us not forget that the US already aids countries in Africa with Military assistance, and guess what...
    Yemen, Congo, Chad, and Sudan (which the US has helped with over 200million dollars) all use child soldiers. So Military aid isn't the solution.

    The Ugandan government wants to introduce a bill that will criminalize homosexuality. Joseph Kony is bad but he is just an excuse to invade central Africa. The US killed Bin Laden do know they need a new reason to further their hands of imperialism.

    Not quite, they want to introduce a bill so 'convicted homosexuals' will face the death penalty.

    They are brainwashing the youth with this imperialist propaganda. The government is showing it at schools.

    American government didn't want to participate at first, but when they saw masses protesting they had to. I'm not sure what can they get out of it.

    6 million people have died in the Congo since a decade. It's sick how they are using the conflict for profit. This is how capitalism works.

    I couldn't keep that one under my hat for too long. Very powerful appeal to logic and rationality.
