[Kony]

Photobucket

I watched the Kony video about a month ago when everyone was thee talk of the week. I thought the video was quite moving and very well done and I'm all for supporting the movement to make the world a better place. At least someone is doing something. There are some portions of the movement which I kinda dont agree with, 1 being the amount of $$ that has been put into the marketing. The posters and tshirts are very pretty and will attract any materialistic being (such as myself and many many other people).

April 20 was supposed to be cover the night where everyone in major cities across the world came together to plaster walls with Kony posters to raise awareness of who Kony is. Compared to the number of club promos, ballet posters, concerts and DJ posters on the walls and posts at a time downtown, Kony Vancouver didn't really do that great of a job. They did leave traces of stickers, posters and chalk drawings from downtown Vancouver down to beach though, mind you we only walked down that way on Saturday. Maybe if we had walked all over Vancouver we would have seen more.
