America Steps Up To The Plate

This may be my first post in months (what a busy time it’s been) but it’s probably my most important.

America has finally signed into law a bill that demands that Joseph kony be brought to justice and that northern Uganda be supported in its recovery.

Here is a video from Invisible Children, showing the organisation’s role in bringing about a historic piece of legislation.

And President Obama has signed it into law.

You can see his statement on it here.

But are Invisible Children being too optimistic?

The statement contains no concrete plan about what to do.

There is a lot of talk of “renewing” commitments.

Yet what has been done before clearly hasn’t worked.

It remains to be seen if any concrete action will be taken because of this new bill.
