Wikipedia explains it as: ”

Kony 2012 is a campaign started by Invisible Children Inc and the name of an eponymous viral video.[1][2][3] The movement’s purpose is to make Joseph Kony, an alleged Ugandan war criminal, known to the world, for his successful arrest within the year 2012.[4]

The film has spread virally.[5] As of 6 March 2012 (2012 -03-06)[update], the film currently has over 2.5 million views on Vimeo,[6] and 150,000 views on social media site YouTube,[7] with other viewing emanating from a central “Kony2012” website operated by Invisible Children.

The film documents the Invisible Children Inc’s plans and efforts to arrest Kony. It describes Kony’s guerilla warfare tactics with his Lord’s Resistance Army and the regions (northern Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sudan) it has employed them in.[8] The film advocates for curtailing compelled and coerced youth military service and restoration of social order.[3]
