[♪sustained note♪]

pmanninen 00:24
00:28

[male narrator] Right now there are more people on Facebook

pmanninen 00:28
00:32

than there were on the planet 200 years ago.

pmanninen 00:32
00:35

[♪♪]

pmanninen 00:35
00:40

Humanity's greatest desire is to belong and connect.

pmanninen 00:40
00:44

And now we see each other, we hear each other...

pmanninen 00:44
00:47

[female speaker] Grandpa, I love you. >>I love you.

pmanninen 00:47
00:49

Why won't it take a picture?

pmanninen 00:49
00:54

[narrator] We share what we love, and it reminds us what we all have in common.

pmanninen 00:54
00:58

[female speaker] Dug out alive and well after 7½ days.

pmanninen 00:58
01:04

If you believe in yourself, you will know how to ride a bike! Rock and roll!

pmanninen 01:04
01:08

[female speaker] Now, technically, your device is on. Can you tell? [girl laughs]

pmanninen 01:10
01:13

It's exciting!

pmanninen 01:13
01:18

[narrator] And this connection is changing the way the world works.

pmanninen 01:18
01:21

Governments are trying to keep up...

pmanninen 01:21
01:23

Now we can taste the freedom. [crowd shouting]

pmanninen 01:23
01:26

[narrator] and older generations are concerned.

pmanninen 01:26
01:28

Many people are very concerned about tomorrow.

pmanninen 01:28
01:31

They could get worse next year.

pmanninen 01:31
01:34

[narrator] The game has new rules.

pmanninen 01:34
01:38

The next 27 minutes are an experiment.

pmanninen 01:39
01:43

But in order for it to work, you have to pay attention.

pmanninen 01:43
01:48

[whirring sound]

pmanninen 01:52
01:55

[♪sustained note♪]

pmanninen 01:55

[heart monitor beeping] [♪♪]

pmanninen 02:06
02:12

[nurse] Look! Oh, he's cute! [baby crying] Really cute!

pmanninen 02:12
02:14

[nurse] Wow!

pmanninen 02:14
02:17

[crying] I can hear him.

pmanninen 02:17
02:19

[baby crying]

pmanninen 02:19
02:22

[narrator] Every single person in the world started this way.

pmanninen 02:23
02:27

He didn't choose where or when he was born.

pmanninen 02:28
02:31

But because he's here, he matters.

pmanninen 02:31
02:34

[male speaker] We've been waiting for you.

pmanninen 02:35
02:37

You made it.

pmanninen 02:37
02:41

[narrator] My name is Jason Russell, and this is my son, Gavin.

pmanninen 02:47
02:53

He loves jumping on the trampoline, being a ninja, and dancing.

pmanninen 02:53
02:55

[drum playing]

pmanninen 02:55
02:57

[to Gavin] What are you doing? >>Making a snow angel.

pmanninen 02:57
02:59

[Russell] How do you do that? >>You do this.

pmanninen 02:59
03:01

[singing] De-de-de, de-de-de, de-de-de-de-de.

pmanninen 03:01
03:05

[Russell] And just like his dad, he likes being in movies...

pmanninen 03:05
03:11

[to Gavin] Action! >>Look out! Look out, people! Run! It's a bomb!

pmanninen 03:12
03:15

[whizzing sound] [explosion]

pmanninen 03:15
03:18

[Russell] and making movies. >>[Gavin] Daddy, watch this.

pmanninen 03:18
03:21

[whizzing sound] [explosion]

pmanninen 03:21
03:23

I think we got the video.

pmanninen 03:25
03:28

[Russell] But he was born into a pretty complicated world.

pmanninen 03:28
03:33

And as a dad, I want him to grow up in a better world than I did.

pmanninen 03:33
03:36

And because of the course of events in my life,

pmanninen 03:36
03:38

I see a way to get there.

pmanninen 03:38
03:41

It has become my job.

pmanninen 03:41
03:43

Who are you to end a war?

pmanninen 03:43
03:46

I'm here to tell you, who are you not to?

pmanninen 03:46
03:48

Hey Gavin, what's up?

pmanninen 03:48
03:52

Years before Gavin was born, the course of my life was changed entirely

pmanninen 03:52
03:54

by another boy.

pmanninen 03:54
03:57

[to Gavin] And who's this right here? >>[Gavin] Jacob.

pmanninen 03:57
03:59

[Russell] Who's Jacob?

pmanninen 03:59
04:03

[Gavin] Jacob is our friend in Africa.

pmanninen 04:03
04:06

[Russell] It's been almost 10 years since Jacob and I became friends.

pmanninen 04:06
04:10

[♪♪]

pmanninen 04:10
04:16

[laughter] It's okay. They're nice. They're different than sharks.

pmanninen 04:17
04:22

But when my friends and I first met him in Uganda in central Africa,

pmanninen 04:22
04:26

it was in very different circumstances.

pmanninen 04:26
04:29

He was running for his life.

pmanninen 04:29
04:33

[whooshing sound]

pmanninen 04:33
04:35

[JACOB] [Russell to Jacob] You go to school here. >>Yes.

pmanninen 04:35
04:38

[Russell] Yes. That's how you know English so well. >>I know.

pmanninen 04:38
04:40

[Russell] Yeah. >>[off camera speaker] Hello.

pmanninen 04:40
04:42

[Russell] How many nights have you stayed here?

pmanninen 04:42
04:44

[off camera speaker] Hello. You are making our work here very difficult.

pmanninen 04:44
04:46

You stop that thing now.

pmanninen 04:46
04:52

[Russell] The night I first met Jacob, he told me what he and other children in northern Uganda

pmanninen 04:52
04:54

were living through.

pmanninen 04:54
05:00

We worry the rebels when they arrest us again then they will kill us.

pmanninen 05:00
05:04

My brother tried to escape

pmanninen 05:04
05:06

then they killed him using a panga.

pmanninen 05:06
05:08

They cut his neck.

pmanninen 05:08
05:10

[Russell] Did you see it?

pmanninen 05:10
05:12

I saw.

pmanninen 05:12
05:18

We fear that if we sleep at our home we can be abducted by the rebels

pmanninen 05:18
05:21

because our home is far away from town.

pmanninen 05:22
05:25

They will catch us then they will take us there in the bush.

pmanninen 05:25
05:28

We come here to save our life.

pmanninen 05:28
05:47

[♪♪]

pmanninen 05:47
05:51

[Russell] I cannot believe that. >>You cannot believe it?

pmanninen 05:51
05:53

[Russell] This has been going on for years?

pmanninen 05:53
05:55

If that happened one night in America

pmanninen 05:55
05:58

it would be on the cover of Newsweek.

pmanninen 06:00
06:03

What is it that you want to be when you grow up?

pmanninen 06:04
06:07

For me, I wanted to be a lawyer but

pmanninen 06:08
06:11

I don't have money to pay my school fees

pmanninen 06:11
06:14

so that I learn and then become a lawyer.

pmanninen 06:16
06:18

[Russell] After spending a few weeks with Jacob,

pmanninen 06:18
06:21

he told me something I would never forget.

pmanninen 06:21
06:25

It is better when you kill us and if possible,

pmanninen 06:25
06:27

you can kill us, you kill us.

pmanninen 06:27
06:31

For us, we don't want now to stay. >>You don't want to stay on earth?

pmanninen 06:31
06:34

We are only two, no one is taking care of us

pmanninen 06:34
06:36

we are not going to school, so

pmanninen 06:36
06:39

[Russell] You would rather die than stay on earth?

pmanninen 06:39
06:41

Yes. >>Now, even now?

pmanninen 06:41
06:47

Even now. How are we going to stay in our future?

pmanninen 06:47
06:50

[Russell] He told me more about his brother

pmanninen 06:50
06:52

and what he would say to him if he were still alive.

pmanninen 06:52
06:56

I love you but now I miss you

pmanninen 06:56
06:58

so it is better when we meet

pmanninen 06:59
07:01

we are not going to meet but

pmanninen 07:01
07:04

we may meet in heaven you see?

pmanninen 07:04
07:06

So it is better. I will not talk much

pmanninen 07:06
07:10

it will start something because if I saw my brother once again

pmanninen 07:10
07:12

I don't

pmanninen 07:12
07:21

[crying]

pmanninen 07:21
07:23

[Russell] It's okay.

pmanninen 07:23
07:27

Jacob, it's okay. [crying continues]

pmanninen 07:27
07:30

[♪♪]

pmanninen 07:30
07:33

[Russell] Everything in my heart told me to do something.

pmanninen 07:33
07:36

And so I made him a promise.

pmanninen 07:36
07:43

We are also going to do everything that we can to stop them.

pmanninen 07:43
07:45

Do you hear my words?

pmanninen 07:45
07:47

Yes. >>You know what I mean?

pmanninen 07:47
07:49

Yes. Yes.

pmanninen 07:49
07:52

[Russell] We are, we're going to stop them.

pmanninen 07:52
07:55

[♪♪]

pmanninen 07:55
07:57

We're going to stop them.

pmanninen 07:57
07:59

[♪♪]

pmanninen 07:59
08:04

I made that promise to Jacob, not knowing what it would mean.

pmanninen 08:04
08:06

But now I do.

pmanninen 08:06
08:10

Over the past 9 years I have fought to fulfill it.

pmanninen 08:10
08:15

And the fight has led me here to this movie you're watching

pmanninen 08:15
08:20

because that promise is not just about Jacob or me,

pmanninen 08:20
08:22

it's also about you.

pmanninen 08:22
08:28

And this year, 2012, is the year that we can finally fulfill it.

pmanninen 08:28
08:33

And if we succeed, we change the course of human history.

pmanninen 08:33
08:35

But time is running out.

pmanninen 08:35
08:41

To level with you, this movie expires on December 31, 2012,

pmanninen 08:41
08:47

and its only purpose is to stop the rebel group, the LRA, and their leader, Joseph Kony.

pmanninen 08:47
08:50

And I'm about to tell you exactly how we're going to do it.

pmanninen 08:50
08:59

[♪♪]

pmanninen 08:59
09:02

[KONY 2012]

pmanninen 09:05
09:08

So the thing is, my son Gavin has never--

pmanninen 09:08
09:10

I've never really explained to him what I do.

pmanninen 09:10
09:12

He knows I work in Africa,

pmanninen 09:12
09:17

but he doesn't know what the war is about or who Joseph Kony is.

pmanninen 09:17
09:20

So I'm going to explain it to him for the first time today.

pmanninen 09:20
09:22

That's what we're doing.

pmanninen 09:22
09:24

So Gav. >>What? >>Are you ready? >>Yeah.

pmanninen 09:24
09:26

I'm going to ask you some questions. >>Okay.

pmanninen 09:26
09:30

And you can just look at me and answer the questions to me.

pmanninen 09:30
09:32

I'm kind of nervous.

pmanninen 09:32
09:34

[Russell] What do I do for a job?

pmanninen 09:34
09:38

You stop the bad guys from being mean.

pmanninen 09:38
09:40

[Russell] Who are the bad guys?

pmanninen 09:40
09:42

Umm...

pmanninen 09:42
09:44

[Russell] Do you know where-- >>Star Wars people.

pmanninen 09:44
09:46

[Russell] Star Wars people? >>Yeah.

pmanninen 09:46
09:48

[Russell] Those are the bad guys? >>Yeah.

pmanninen 09:48
09:51

[Russell] Can I tell you the bad guy's name? >>Yeah.

pmanninen 09:51
09:54

[Russell] This is the guy, Joseph Kony.

pmanninen 09:55
09:58

He's the bad guy? >>[Russell] Yeah.

pmanninen 09:59
10:01

Who is this? >>Jacob.

pmanninen 10:01
10:07

[Russell] Joseph Kony, he has an army, okay?

pmanninen 10:07
10:11

And what he does is he takes children from their parents

pmanninen 10:11
10:17

and he gives them a gun to shoot, and he makes them shoot and kill other people.

pmanninen 10:19
10:24

But they're not going to do what he says because they're nice guys, right?

pmanninen 10:24
10:30

[Russell] Yeah. They don't want to do what he says, but he forces them to do bad things.

pmanninen 10:31
10:35

What do you think about that? >>Sad.

pmanninen 10:37
10:43

[Russell] I couldn't explain to Gavin the details of what Joseph Kony really does,

pmanninen 10:43
10:49

because the truth is, Kony abducts kids just like Gavin.

msyutz 10:57
11:03

For 26 years, Kony has been kidnapping children into his rebel group, the LRA,

msyutz 11:07
11:11

turning the girls into sex slaves

msyutz 11:12
11:16

and the boys into child soldiers.

msyutz 11:17
11:20

He makes them mutilate people's faces

msyutz 11:23
11:27

and he forces them to kill their own parents.

msyutz 11:29
11:32

And this is not just a few children.

msyutz 11:36
11:39

It's been over 30,000 of them.

msyutz 11:42
11:46

And Jacob was one of those children.

msyutz 11:50
11:53

As if Kony's crimes aren't bad enough,

msyutz 11:53
11:59

he is not fighting for any cause, but only to maintain his power.

msyutz 11:59
12:02

He is not supported by anyone,

msyutz 12:02
12:07

and he has repeatedly used peace talks to re-arm and murder again and again.

msyutz 12:07
12:11

Kony different times proposed peace and then

msyutz 12:11
12:14

just regained strength and attacked.

msyutz 12:14
12:16

[Luis Moreno Ocampo - Prosecutor, International Criminal Court]

msyutz 12:16
12:19

[Russell] This is the head prosecutor for the International Criminal Court.

msyutz 12:19
12:21

[International Criminal Court - The Hague, The Netherlands]

msyutz 12:21
12:24

In 2002 when the court was started, their job was to find and demand the arrest

msyutz 12:24
12:27

of the world's worst criminals.

msyutz 12:27
12:31

Although there are a lot of warlords, murderers, and dictators in the world,

msyutz 12:31
12:37

the perversity of Kony's crimes made him first on the court's list.

msyutz 12:37
12:40

Kony is the first guy indicted by the ICC.

msyutz 12:40
12:42

The crimes basically are crimes against humanity

msyutz 12:42
12:45

and war crimes committed against the civilian population

msyutz 12:45
12:50

including murder, sexual slavery, rapes, abductions.

msyutz 12:50
12:53

We need to plan how to arrest Kony.

msyutz 12:53
12:55

Start to plan and it has to be serious.

msyutz 12:55
12:57

In fact, the only way to stop Kony

msyutz 12:57
13:00

is to show him we're going to arrest you.

msyutz 13:02
13:05

[Russell] What do you think we should do about it?

msyutz 13:05
13:07

We should stop him.

msyutz 13:07
13:09

[Ocampo] The criminal here is Kony

msyutz 13:09
13:12

stop him and then solve other problems.

msyutz 13:12
13:15

[Russell] We should stop who? >>Him.

msyutz 13:15
13:17

[♪♪]

msyutz 13:17
13:20

[Russell] It's obvious that Kony should be stopped.

msyutz 13:20
13:24

The problem is 99% of the planet doesn't know who he is.

msyutz 13:24
13:28

If they knew, Kony would have been stopped long ago.

msyutz 13:29
13:31

Let the world, let the international community take justice to him there

msyutz 13:31
13:34

[Santo Okot Lapolo - Politician, Uganda] follow him wherever he is.

msyutz 13:34
13:36

First, to rescue our children

msyutz 13:36
13:39

and secondly, to deliver the justice.

msyutz 13:39
13:42

We are determined to cooperate with any friend of Uganda

msyutz 13:42
13:45

[Norbert Mao - Politician, Uganda] to ensure that this mindless killing

msyutz 13:45
13:48

and slaughter is ended.

msyutz 13:49
13:51

[Russell] When my friends and I came home from Uganda,

pmanninen 13:51
13:56

we thought that if the government knew, they would do something to stop him.

msyutz 13:56
13:58

But everyone in Washington we talked to said

msyutz 13:58
14:02

there is no way the United States will ever get involved in a conflict

msyutz 14:02
14:08

where our national security or financial interests aren't at stake.

msyutz 14:08
14:11

[John Prendergast - Enough Project] No administration--Republic, Democrat, Obama,

msyutz 14:11
14:14

Bush, Clinton, it doesn't matter--would do enough

msyutz 14:14
14:16

because it's simply not an important enough issue

msyutz 14:16
14:20

on the radar screen of American foreign policy.

msyutz 14:20
14:23

[Russell] Since the government said it was impossible,

msyutz 14:23
14:25

we didn't know what else to do

msyutz 14:25
14:30

but tell everyone we could about Jacob and the invisible children.

msyutz 14:30
14:32

Show this movie to as many people as possible

msyutz 14:32
14:35

in such a way that we can't be ignored.

msyutz 14:35
14:38

And when we did, people were shocked

msyutz 14:38
14:41

and their awareness turned into action.

msyutz 14:41
14:45

We started something--a community.

msyutz 14:46
14:49

I have friends that have been living in this conflict their entire life.

msyutz 14:49
14:52

Fight for that, because that is what is going to change this world,

msyutz 14:52
14:54

and that is what defines us.

msyutz 14:54
14:57

[Russell] We got creative and we got loud.

msyutz 14:57
15:02

[crowd shouting] It's not over! It's not over! It's not over!

msyutz 15:02
15:05

[Russell] And as the LRA began to move into other countries,

msyutz 15:05
15:10

Jacob and other Ugandans came to the US to speak on behalf of all people

msyutz 15:10
15:13

suffering because of Kony.

msyutz 15:13
15:17

Even though Uganda was relatively safe, they felt compelled to tell the world

msyutz 15:17
15:21

that Kony was still out there and had to be stopped.

msyutz 15:21
15:25

I'm here so proud advocating for the people who are back at home

msyutz 15:25
15:28

and this change we are going to make is going to last forever.

msyutz 15:28
15:33

[Russell] We built a community around the idea that where you live

msyutz 15:33
15:35

shouldn't determine whether you live.

msyutz 15:35
15:39

We were committed to stop Kony and rebuild what he had destroyed.

msyutz 15:39
15:43

And because we couldn't wait for institutions or governments to step in,

msyutz 15:43
15:45

we did it ourselves

msyutz 15:45
15:49

with our time, talent, and money.

msyutz 15:49
15:51

So we rebuilt schools.

msyutz 15:51
15:54

The best you can offer a child [Jolly Okot - Country Director, Invisible Children]

msyutz 15:54
15:56

is by letting them be independent

msyutz 15:56
15:59

and that was providing education.

msyutz 15:59
16:01

[Russell] We created jobs.

msyutz 16:01
16:03

I have seen the lives [Peter King - Mentor, Invisible Children]

msyutz 16:03
16:05

of those who have been hopeless

msyutz 16:05
16:07

now they have hope.

pmanninen 16:07
16:10

[Russell] And we built an Early Warning Radio Network

msyutz 16:10
16:15

on the front line of the war to protect villages from rebel attacks.

msyutz 16:15
16:20

To update real time what's happening on a war zone 8,000 miles away.

msyutz 16:20
16:22

[♪♪]

msyutz 16:22
16:26

All of this was funded by an army of young people

msyutz 16:26
16:30

who put their money toward their belief in the value of all human life.

msyutz 16:30
16:34

They gave a few dollars a month of what little they had

msyutz 16:34
16:37

to a program called TRI

msyutz 16:37
16:41

and proved that a bunch of littles could make a big difference.

msyutz 16:41
16:46

And as a result, the unseen became visible.

msyutz 16:46
16:50

[crowd] We've seen these kids.

msyutz 16:50
16:53

We've heard their cries.

msyutz 16:53
16:58

This war must end!

msyutz 16:58
17:01

We will not stop.

msyutz 17:01
17:04

We will not fear.

msyutz 17:04
17:08

We will fight war!

msyutz 17:08
17:27

[♪Mumford & Sons "Roll Away Your Stone" playing♪]

msyutz 17:27
17:30

from every other state that I can think of.

msyutz 17:32

We're all doing this for the exact same reason

msyutz 17:34

msyutz 17:37

[♪"Roll Away Your Stone" ends♪]

msyutz 17:43

[♪♪]

msyutz 17:45
17:48

[Russell] So with hundreds of thousands of people with us,

msyutz 17:48
17:51

we went back to Washington, DC,

msyutz 17:51
17:54

and we met with congressmen and senators one by one

msyutz 17:54
18:00

on both sides--Republicans, Democrats--and they all agreed with us.

msyutz 18:00
18:02

Joseph Kony's crimes had to be stopped.

msyutz 18:02
18:05

[Jim Inhofe - Senator (R-OK)] Of all the problems that are out there,

pmanninen 18:05
18:10

none is more severe than one that mutilates and takes the lives of little kids.

msyutz 18:10
18:12

[Rep. Susan Davis - D-California, 53rd District] These young members

msyutz 18:12
18:16

of the Invisible Children organization know that no child should live in fear

msyutz 18:16
18:18

of being abducted or killed.

pmanninen 18:18
18:20

[male speaker] So they were determined to become their voice.

msyutz 18:20
18:24

They realized that these African children and families

msyutz 18:24
18:26

were invisible to Washington policymakers,

msyutz 18:26
18:29

[Rep. Jim McGovern - D-Massachusetts, 3rd District] so they decided to make them visible.

msyutz 18:29
18:34

[Russell] And what I was told would never happen suddenly became possible.

msyutz 18:34
18:36

[October 14, 2011 - Invisible Children HQ, San Diego, CA] In furtherance

msyutz 18:36
18:40

of the Congress's stated policy, I have authorized a small number of US forces

msyutz 18:40
18:44

to deploy to central Africa to provide assistance to regional forces

msyutz 18:44
18:49

that are working toward the removal of Joseph Kony from the battlefield.

pmanninen 18:49
18:52

Sincerely, Barack Obama.

18:55

[cheering and applause]

msyutz 18:55
18:58

[male speaker] The surprise announcement came in a letter from the White House.

msyutz 18:58
19:01

The US President's decision commits US troops to help.

msyutz 19:01
19:04

Through advice and assistance--not putting Americans into combat--

msyutz 19:04
19:07

to help the countries of the region end this threat once and for all,

msyutz 19:07
19:09

then that was a worthwhile investment.

msyutz 19:09
19:13

[cheering and applause]

msyutz 19:13
19:16

[Jolly Okot - Country Director, Invisible Children] We used to think we could not do it

msyutz 19:16
19:19

and now when I see we can do it I am overwhelmed.

msyutz 19:19
19:21

[cheering]

msyutz 19:21
19:26

[Russell] After 8 years of work, the government finally heard us,

msyutz 19:26
19:32

and in October of 2011, 100 American advisors were sent into central Africa

msyutz 19:32
19:37

to assist the Ugandan army in arresting Kony and stopping the LRA.

msyutz 19:37
19:42

It was the first time in history that the United States took that kind of action

msyutz 19:42
19:44

because the people demanded it--

msyutz 19:44
19:49

not for self-defense but because it was right.

msyutz 19:51
19:56

[♪sustained note♪]

[A 14-year-old boy who just escaped reports that "Joseph Kony now knows]

20:10

["of the United States' plan to stop the LRA and he is going to change his tactics]

msyutz 20:10
20:17

["to avoid capture, now that the great power is after him."]

msyutz 20:19
20:21

[Russell] We've come so far,

msyutz 20:21
20:25

but Kony is still out there.

msyutz 20:25
20:28

He's recently changed his tactics,

pmanninen 20:28
20:32

making it even more difficult to capture him,

pmanninen 20:32
20:36

and international support could be removed at any time.

pmanninen 20:38
20:41

[Inhofe] If we take the pressure off, if we're not successful,

msyutz 20:41
20:44

he is going to be growing his numbers.

msyutz 20:44
20:46

[Jim Inhofe - Senator (R-OK), February 15, 2012] People forget

msyutz 20:46
20:48

and you've got to remind them and it takes numbers to remind them

msyutz 20:48
20:53

and if interest wanes, then it'll just, it'll go away

msyutz 20:53
20:56

and I'd end up standing out there alone trying to do something to

msyutz 20:56
20:59

support completing the mission.

msyutz 20:59

It's got to be 2012.

msyutz 21:01

[Luis Moreno Ocampo - Prosecutor, ICC] It's not bad for the youth

msyutz 21:03

it's bad for the world if we fail.

msyutz 21:05
21:08

It's not important just for Ugandan people it's important for everyone.

msyutz 21:11
21:15

[Russell] It's hard to look back on some parts of human history

msyutz 21:15
21:23

because when we heard about injustice, we cared but we didn't know what to do.

msyutz 21:23
21:27

Too often we did nothing.

msyutz 21:27
21:32

But if we're going to change that, we have to start somewhere.

msyutz 21:32
21:36

So we're starting here, with Joseph Kony,

msyutz 21:36
21:39

because now we know what to do.

msyutz 21:39
21:42

Here it is. Ready?

msyutz 21:42
21:45

In order for Kony to be arrested this year,

msyutz 21:45
21:49

the Ugandan military has to find him.

msyutz 21:49
21:55

In order to find him, they need the technology and training to track him in the vast jungle.

msyutz 21:55
21:58

That's where the American advisors come in.

msyutz 21:58
22:01

But in order for the American advisors to be there,

msyutz 22:01
22:04

the US government has to deploy them.

msyutz 22:04
22:08

They've done that, but if the government doesn't believe the people care

msyutz 22:08
22:12

about arresting Kony, the mission will be canceled.

msyutz 22:12
22:15

In order for the people to care, they have to know.

msyutz 22:15
22:20

And they will only know if Kony's name is everywhere.

msyutz 22:20
22:24

[♪♪]

msyutz 22:24
22:26

This is the dream:

msyutz 22:26
22:30

Kony arrested for all the world to see

msyutz 22:30
22:34

and the abducted children returned home.

msyutz 22:35
22:39

Here's the biggest problem. Do you want to know what it is? >>Yeah.

msyutz 22:39
22:41

Nobody knows who he is.

msyutz 22:41
22:50

But I know who he is because I see him on this picture right now.

msyutz 22:50
22:55

[Russell] He's not famous. He's invisible. Joseph Kony is invisible.

pmanninen 22:56
22:59

Here is how we're going to make him visible.

pmanninen 23:00
23:03

We are going to make Joseph Kony a household name--

pmanninen 23:03
23:08

not to celebrate him but to bring his crimes to the light.

pmanninen 23:08
23:11

And we are starting this year, 2012.

pmanninen 23:11
23:16

We are targeting 20 culture-makers and 12 policymakers

pmanninen 23:16
23:18

to use their power for good.

pmanninen 23:18
23:20

Let's start with the 20 culture-makers.

pmanninen 23:20
23:24

Celebrities, athletes, and billionaires have a loud voice,

pmanninen 23:24
23:27

and what they talk about spreads instantly.

pmanninen 23:27
23:29

I want

pmanninen 23:29
23:34

I'd like indicted war criminals to enjoy the same level of celebrity as me.

pmanninen 23:34
23:36

That seems fair.

pmanninen 23:36
23:39

That's our objective, is to just shine a light on it.

pmanninen 23:39
23:44

[Russell] If our goal is to get Kony's name known, the known should join us.

pmanninen 23:44
23:48

We are targeting 20 of the most diverse and influential culture-makers

pmanninen 23:48
23:52

to speak out about Kony and make him famous.

pmanninen 23:52
23:55

Oprah, Mark Zuckerberg, Ryan Seacrest, Bono.

pmanninen 23:55
23:57

[Russell] Then we're going after policymakers,

pmanninen 23:57
24:01

the ones that have the authority to see Kony captured.

pmanninen 24:01
24:04

They decide if the advisors stay or leave,

pmanninen 24:04
24:09

so we need to remind them that in this election year of fighting and name-calling,

pmanninen 24:09
24:14

no matter what side you're on, this is something we can all agree on.

pmanninen 24:14
24:16

[Russ Feingold - Former US Senator (D-WI)] If a senator or congressman

pmanninen 24:16
24:20

notices 25 phone calls on any issue, on any given day, it is noted.

pmanninen 24:20
24:23

When citizens by the hundreds of thousands

pmanninen 24:23
24:26

start demanding that our government do something,

pmanninen 24:26
24:30

suddenly it becomes in the national interest of the United States government

pmanninen 24:30
24:32

to respond to this problem.

pmanninen 24:32
24:37

[Russell] We've identified the 12 policymakers that could change the game regarding Kony,

pmanninen 24:37
24:39

so we're targeting them.

pmanninen 24:39
24:43

On our website we've made it easy to write them directly, call them,

pmanninen 24:43
24:46

meet with them, and get their attention.

pmanninen 24:46
24:50

If my son were kidnapped and forced to kill, it would be all over the news.

pmanninen 24:50
24:53

So we are making Kony world news

pmanninen 24:53
24:57

by redefining the propaganda we see all day, every day,

pmanninen 24:57
25:00

that dictates who and what we pay attention to.

pmanninen 25:00
25:03

[Shepard Fairey - Artist] A lot of people feel powerless to communicate their ideas.

pmanninen 25:03
25:08

They think that, "Okay, I'm not a corporation. I don't own my own magazine or news station."

pmanninen 25:08
25:10

"I just don't have any say."

pmanninen 25:10
25:13

But seeing what I've done, I think it's empowered a lot of people

pmanninen 25:13
25:16

to realize that 1 individual can make an impact.

pmanninen 25:16
25:19

I actually want to demystify and say, "Here are these really simple tools."

pmanninen 25:19
25:22

"Go out and rock it."

pmanninen 25:22
25:25

[Russell] And that's just what we intend to do.

pmanninen 25:25
25:29

[♪Flux Pavilion's "I Can't Stop" playing♪]

pmanninen 25:29
25:32

Our goal is to change the conversation of our culture

pmanninen 25:32
25:35

and get people to ask, "Who is Joseph Kony?"

pmanninen 25:35
25:40

We have printed hundreds of thousands of posters, stickers, yard signs, and flyers

pmanninen 25:40
25:46

that are right now, today, being put up in major cities all over the world.

pmanninen 25:46
25:50

We have thousands of Kony 2012 bracelets that we want everyone to wear

pmanninen 25:50
25:52

this year only.

pmanninen 25:52
25:55

Each bracelet has a unique ID number.

pmanninen 25:55
25:59

Input that number and you enter the mission to make Kony famous.

pmanninen 25:59
26:04

You can geotag your posters and track your impact in real time.

pmanninen 26:04
26:08

Everything you need is in a box called the Action Kit.

pmanninen 26:08
26:11

It has 2 bracelets, 1 for you and 1 to give away.

pmanninen 26:11
26:14

And if you want to help fund our lifesaving programs,

pmanninen 26:14
26:17

donate a few dollars a month through TRI

pmanninen 26:17
26:20

and you can have the Action Kit for free.

pmanninen 26:20
26:22

Start making Kony famous today,

pmanninen 26:22
26:27

but all of these efforts will culminate on 1 day, April 20,

pmanninen 26:27
26:29

when we cover the night.

pmanninen 26:29
26:34

This is the day when we will meet at sundown and blanket every street in every city

pmanninen 26:34
26:36

till the sun comes up.

pmanninen 26:36
26:38

We will be smart and we will be thorough.

pmanninen 26:38

pmanninen 26:41

Joseph Kony was committing crimes

pmanninen 27:51

for twenty years and no one cared.

pmanninen 27:53
27:55

We care.

pmanninen 27:55

[Russell] We have reached a crucial time in history

pmanninen 27:59
28:05

where what we do or don't do right now will affect every generation to come.

pmanninen 28:06

Arresting Joseph Kony will prove that the world we live in has new rules,

pmanninen 28:11

that the technology that has brought our planet together
