Kony and his group are involved in an armed movement against the current ruling government of Uganda. Kony is said to kidnap children and force them in war.

World attention switched to Kony in early March 2012 when a thirty-minute documentary titled Kony 2012 by film maker Jason Russell for the campaign group Invisible Children Inc was released. The intention of the production is to draw attention to Kony in an effort to increase United States involvement in the issue.
