  • colony of ducks kids just like gavin

  • turning the girls in the sex slaves

  • and the poison the child soldiers

  • rates

  • protections

  • to plan hamptons connie

  • stockman

  • fantasies

  • the only way to the police junkie

  • with the rest

  • all right so that's a snippet of what's going on you get an idea of who joseph

  • cohen e_a_s_

  • uh... and what's incredible about this campaign is the number of people who are

  • already talking about it right this group invisible children is stunningly

  • successful yes annie i help or at least you know is asian this successful www

  • social media

  • or influencing account for

  • in a way like this it appears to be

  • like he did not only did is the scoop this cleanup backed up by anybody does

  • new really no i mean i'm sure he died as a religious cloak around him but it's

  • not as a setter

  • but at the same time no one is the selling motivated to be a guest of for

  • political reasons either

  • that's why you have to give invisible children credit

  • for saying hey you know what were motivated just by the fact of how venus

  • this guy is yet since topping yes absolutely hamlet

  • i think that the most powerful thing that this organization is doing right

  • now is educating people now aside from educating people date have uh... you

  • know another strategy two

  • find colony and bring him to justice and this is a part of the video where they

  • talk about that strategy let's watch

  • we are going to make josef conte

  • not to celebrate him

  • but to bring his crimes to the lines

  • and we're starting this year

  • twenty twelve

  • you're targeting twenty culture makers twelve policymakers

  • to use their power for good so they want to make a household name babe why do so

  • at their social media and so far they've been very successful

  • however regardless of how successful they've been they've received a

  • tremendous amount of criticism and i think it's important to bring that to

  • you guys as well singer fully informed

  • that way you can make a decision as to whether or not you want to support this

  • organization

  • so the first criticism is how they use their funding and i want to give you

  • guys the exact numbers

  • uh... if you look at at the amount of money they received in donations it was

  • a total of eight point nine million dollars spent in twenty eleven one point

  • seven million went to their u_s_ employees to their salaries three

  • hundred fifty seven thousand out went to film costs now keep in mind that the

  • educated both their films eight hundred fifty thousand went to production costs

  • seven hundred fifty one thousand went to compete computer equipment

  • of course all of this uh... money is being used

  • for the films for the production and i understand it that's very expensive also

  • two hundred forty four thousand went to professional services

  • uh... and

  • that could include d_c_ lobbyists

  • uh... one point seven million went to travel expenses they travel to and from

  • africa and four hundred thousand yearly as spending went to office rent they're

  • renting in downtown san diego

  • now this is all public information it's available to all of its that were done

  • on the organization

  • on the two point eight million which is only thirty one percent of the donations

  • uh... went to their actual charity program there's a couple things here in

  • that regard one it is that uh... whenever you look at any organization is

  • doing a kind of charity non-profit center

  • people was like oh my god i can't believe that it costs money to run your

  • offspring but it that's you know you have to hire people inside

  • now is very clear that house

  • what the senate of the

  • you know money collected ghosts of actual charity saw without thirty one

  • percent is a low number i'm keeping it real

  • here better send the one the main missions they have

  • is public awareness so it's not fair to discount of thirty one percent here

  • and say that that's the only way they spend immaturity no no

  • is spending money for awareness

  • and that's why they have the employee cost of production cost the filming cost

  • et cetera and like i said they've been stunningly successful in raising

  • awareness and in uh... silly in the president's attention

  • as your about to tell us

  • so now if you do dive into the details and is salaries are outrageously high

  • which is not the says we have now

  • that would be a different story absolutely absolutely

  • and you know out when it comes to what they have achieved so far

  • they have up basically

  • but please huge role in getting it

  • president no bother to send one hundred members of our own military to africa in

  • search of connie to bring in to justice

  • that's one of these but with this group

  • i've been following politics in news from you know my whole life

  • and i cant emma recollect the president say hey you know what

  • here's a hundred guys google get back tag go arrest them killed whatever it is

  • that doesn't hit you with

  • and allies our fight against terrorism oil

  • police such as alba block state and never heard of it but that's why this is

  • so incredible change because

  • e understand its the u_s_ usually doesn't intervene unless they're

  • self-interests up late right

  • there are some pictures here right and and i'd know that that's a very realist

  • perspective but it's the truth right that's how it works in the

  • international's sphere

  • if a country doesn't see that their resources are something to take

  • advantage of didn't really give a shit about democracy i don't buy any of that

  • now uh... their disagreements about that but that's my take on it

  • ob but look even though they've been successful in public awareness and even

  • the old days finally got a white house to do something about it and

  • by the way when they first went to politicians about the situation

  • alike about ten years ago when they first did their very first film

  • politicians basically britain brushed aside to the rockets at yahoo probably

  • not going to anything about this antalya i'm shocked that they're doing something

  • about you know kinda and i think it could be committed

  • the solution to come see if you have about whether

  • uh... it's a good idea or not because

  • you know people who are libertarians and also some liberals said it would say you

  • know what

  • you have is random hundred-person

  • you know you call it a slob to arrest them you can call it a hit squad

  • s_n_e_t_'s the middle of sovereign countries ago

  • have added cost now of course the government of uganda is okay with it yet

  • so i knew that obviously is a huge difference maker here

  • it could develop into something badly they could great great rail that's why

  • you guys have to be fully informed on the situation right because i think a

  • lot of people are just blindly supporting without really delving into

  • the organization and what the potential ramifications could be in the future

  • so one final criticism of the organization that i wanna make sure that

  • you guys know about

  • is the fact that they are supportive of the ugandan uh... military right however

  • members of that military have also been accused of rape and looting uh... there

  • was as study done by the social science research council it's a completely

  • independent counsel and ad being looked into invisible children and here's what

  • they found

  • invisible children a supported us against people's liberation army

  • both the ugandan army and the sudan people's liberation army are riddled

  • with accusations of rape and looting

  • but invisible children defense then

  • arguing that the ugandan army is better equipped

  • than that of the any under other affected countries although connie is no

  • longer active in uganda and hasn't been since two thousand six by their own

  • admission

  • there now and see that in congo

  • so again it's a very complicated issue beaches

  • in order to have a realistic effect here

  • you've got a hackney some allies in the region so

  • uh... i sympathize with the the invisible saloon campaign to get those

  • allies saying if the job done another head

  • money going the wrong hands is a serious problem

  • and isn't really be ear able are you really able to make sure that all the

  • money that goes

  • to your knowledge of the region are going to the right place is the right

  • people

  • well that's really tough to tell but then if your for you know this campaign

  • you turn around the state

  • but we want to get the job done read on

  • because if you don't have allies of the region

  • you not to be able to get the job done and you don't it'll be very you know

  • safe and sound in your

  • you know affects as you sit on your couch and or do a damn fed yes right

  • so

  • it's not a cut and dried issue it's not a black-and-white issue

  • but at the same time

  • you know

  • uh... i again i'm amazed by their effectiveness

  • an amazing their passion

  • to make sure they bring this guy to justice

if you guys have been on the internet and all in the last day added you have
