[KONY2012 Protest]


Ugandans in California will host a demonstration in front of Invisible Children's World Headquarters in San Diego, California, to protest the organization's insensitivity, arrogance, and unbalanced portrayal of the 26-year humanitarian and human rights catastrophe in Uganda in the Kony2012.

On Saturday, March 31, 2012, Human Rights groups will join Ugandans in a demonstration to show their disagreement with both the content and message of Kony2012. This protest will start at 12:00 Noon and end at 3:00 PM PST at 1620 5th Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.

Ugandans and survivors of the brutal Kony/Museveni conflict want the world to clearly understand that Joseph Kony and President Museveni are partners in a gross human-rights abuse that has resulted in the death of over one million people and displacement of over two million in northern Uganda.

Mr. Olara Otunnu, former U.N. Under-Secretary General and Special Representative of the Secretary General for Children and Armed Conflict, said Museveni and his Movement government is responsible for 97 percent of all deaths that have occurred in Uganda during this conflict and the LRA is responsible for the remaining three percent.

The Invisible Children want to promote Kony2012; Ugandans want to promote Kony/Museveni2012
