Ugandan Woman Responds to Kony 2012: "You Have No Space Telling My Story"

A Ugandan journalist isn’t very impressed with the Kony 2012 video that’s gone viral this week. “It simplifies the story of millions of people in northern Uganda and makes out a narrative that is often hard about Africa, about how hopeless people are in times of conflict.” She adds: “If you are showing me as voiceless, as hopeless, you have no space telling my story, you shouldn’t be telling my story.”

The woman goes on to talk about local initiatives that have been used to try to end the conflict. Must watch.
