One of the main stories that has been going around this week has been regarding a video called KONY 2012 from the group Invisible Children, and the various reactions and opinions to that video. There has been quite a discussion about the merits of this video and indeed to the group themselves, and one of the most in depth and comprehensive response/criticism comes from Mark Kersten at Justice in Conflict, definitely worth a read.
