#repost @michaelchristopherbrown ・・・ USSOF and SPLA soldiers hunt Joseph Kony @nytmag #lordsresistancearmy #2015
One of the best soccer games that I ever had the pleasure of watching was in Gulu, Uganda at an IDP camp where the impoverished children, who were terrorized by night by the LRA, played barefoot with a knotted up ball made of plastic bags. #uganda #soccer #africa #football #nikon #thirdworld #children #sports #spirit #photojournalism #photojournalisme #athlete #soccerball #idps #internallydisplacedpersons #ocholi #lra #lordsresistancearmy

“During the war, there were what was called “night commuters,” young children who walked more than five miles a day to sleep in open public spaces to avoid being abducted by the #lordsresistancearmy. For many years, I was a night commuter. I lived trying to avoid abduction by the rebel group while also trying to study and compete with children in other parts of the country where it was peaceful,” said Ugandan human rights attorney Nicholas Opiyo, a visiting scholar at the Center for African Studies. “You could say, in a nutshell, that my early childhood experiences inspired my desire and passion to do what I do today - defending the rights of the vulnerable and underprivileged in our society.” Nicholas has practiced law in Kampala, Uganda 🇺🇬 for 15 years and will speak at the upcoming SGS Annual Student Dinner on April 17. Read our interview with him on the Global Studies website. 🌍
Het Lord’s Resistance Army van Joseph Kony is na decennia van gruweldaden in Centraal-Afrika verzwakt, maar kan nog steeds ongestraft zijn gang gaan.

Get out your old activist bracelets and crumpled up posters, we're bringing you back to the days of Joseph Kony and the LRA. In our first of a three part series, Armando takes Paige and Andrea through the history of Uganda and the cult leader that blazed a path for Kony to lead the resistance.

LOOKING BACK from TODAY to DECEMBER 24th 2008: Lord's Resistance Army, a Ugandan rebel group, begins a series of attacks on Democratic Republic of the Congo, massacring more than 400 🇨🇩 #democraticrepublicofthecongo #massacre #news #uganda #rebelgroup #lordsresistancearmy #memories #unlimitednews #unlimitednewsmemories
This is Charles. He is a remarkable young man. He has been raising his 4 younger brothers since he was very young and is now 19. His parents were both abducted by the #lordsresistancearmy and both returned too emotionally traumatized to function as parents. When we first met the boys, they were hungry, eating only one meal of cabbage a day. Now they are #honey #farmers and can grow vegetables, too. They are all in school now and Charles hopes to go to college! #lra #sustainableincome #socent #alleviatepoverty #nonprofits #changemakers #strengthofthehumanspirit #uganda #africa
This is Sarah, who was in captivity with #lordsresistancearmy for 10 years, and her two sons who were born while in captivity. Since returning home, she had two more kids. Sarah is now only around 25 years old. She does not know her exact birthdate. She is trying to rebuild her life and is one of our #honey #farmers. She also used a #revolvingfund loan to start a business selling second hand clothes. Financial independence gives hope for a better future! #sustainableincome #socent #microloans #alleviatepoverty #lra #nonprofits #changemakers #uganda #africa
Northern #uganda was severely affected by the #lordsresistancearmy insurgency. Children were abducted by the #lra rebels and forced into soldiery. Young girls were given out as sex slaves to commanders. The majority of them became child mothers. Many children were orphaned by the LRA and even some adults were abducted. Villages were leveled and the residents of Northern Uganda were forced to live in camps for their own protection. Our #honey #farmer #cooperative and #revolvingfunds aim to help these people rebuild their lives by helping to build a foundation from which to earn a livable, #sustainableincome. #socent #alleviatepoverty #microloans #nonprofits #changemakers #strengthofthehumanspirit  #africa
#writtenambition Starting this new one. It's my first real collaborative piece of a collection I've been planning for a while. The text is the opening paragraphs of a book that a youth in my study is writing in northern Uganda about her life as a child born of war.

Lawrence is not a refugee, but he could have been, easily. He is from Uganda where Joseph Kony wrecked death and destruction in the most horrific ways possible. Thousands died, or were mutilated, and hundreds of child soldiers created.  It’s important to tell the stories of ordinary people, it shows how close we all are to fleeing our homes and that everyone had lives before, ordinary lives, productive and happy lives.  Lawrence came to Kenya to build a special house and stayed. He got the job by chance, a friend put him in touch with NGO who needed a skilled builder and like many others here he’s stayed; three years now.  He’s an excellent builder and handyman having trained under a good construction firm back home and can turn his hand to just about anything. He’s been digging a well this week so we can find a water source, sorting out my faulty irrigation system, mending wheelbarrow and school desks, today he has built us a chicken coop.... All whilst helping manage the building of some new classrooms. Oh and he can also cook and loves his chai! He would never say no to a cup of tea!  He has a little boy back home who is with his mum, and the job here provides well for him and Uganda’s border is pretty close. He is so easy going and helpful, perfect for all the different things we need doing or mending!! An ordinary life like millions and millions of others - until war breaks out over resources, fed by the greed of the West or a corrupt government seeking absolute power takes control.  #notarefugee #bychance #uganda #lordsresistancearmy #josephkony #handyman #hobbithouse #builder #mostimportant #candoanything

*My daughter is from Uganda- The best way to help the orphan crisis in the world is to help keep these mamas alive and able to care for themselves and their children. Let’s do what we can to stop children from becoming orphans in the first place! 💛💛💛 💛 I’m the advocate for a village in Uganda which means I have chosen to be the voice here in America to help you all know about them and partner with them.  These women have been through more than you could ever imagine (survivors of The Lord’s Resistance Army, widowed, abused, basically shunned, etc) We are empowering them to be able to rise up and support themselves. We pay $23 per month to support their education. They learn business skills, income producing skills (gardening, raising chickens etc), they learn how to read and write, how to care for themselves physically, how to save money, and how to work with each other to connect as women and to empower each other.  This is truly helping without hurting.  I need a few people to join me in monthly support for them.  You can check out more information in the link in my profile. 💛 . . #ogoloiavillage #beautyforashesuganda #helpingwithouthurting #uganda #empoweringwomen #womenempoweringwomen #orphancrisis #lordsresistancearmy #widowed #literacy #love

We spent the day yesterday visiting our #honey #farmers. Eighteen year old Ronald lost his parents and two brothers to violence of the #lordsresistancearmy in Northern #uganda. Since that time, he has been the caretaker of his three sisters. He told us that becoming a #beekeeper has allowed him to hold money in his hands for the first time and has paid school fees for his sisters. He has not been able to go to school himself, though. Ronald has been able to start growing cotton and to buy goats, which are reproducing.. He plans to buy chickens after the next harvest #socent #sustainableincome #africa #pilotlightfoundation
21 days with 21 photos showing reasons for migration. Day 3: #violence and civil #war .

Here is a short clip from our episode this week featuring #sisterrosemary!⠀ #prosforafrica, #sewinghope, #uganda, #lordsresistancearmy
#africa’s #elephants have long been vulnerable to hunters in pursuit of #ivory. In recent years, several of the continent’s terrorist groups have turned to #poaching as a source of funding: the border hopping Lord’s Resistance Army, the #seleka of the #centralafricanrepublic, the #janjaweed of #sudan, and FDLR rebels inside Virunga National Park. In @brentstirton’s reportage “Ivory Wars,” he shows the toll of the #violence on the elephants, the surrounding #communities, and the brave but meager forces charged with protecting the creatures.  Exhibited at #visapourlimage2016, here is an image from the series. The caption: Michael Oryem, a former Lord’s Resistance Army fighter, with two elephant tusks after he led authorities to their location in the Central African Republic. The LRA and other rebel groups have increasingly turned to ivory poaching as a source of funding.

Since it’s a new year, figured I’d continue to post some meaningful throwbacks & memories from years past... I took these shots while filming #longwaydown back in #2007.  Ewan, Charley, David, Russ and I flew up to Gulu in Northern Uganda, alongside our amazing #unicef partners, where we visited a displaced peoples’ community — a makeshift village of over 40,000 people all forced to relocate because of the horrific acts of The Lord’s Resistance Army.  It was incredible to see and film the work UNICEF was doing there — and continues to do — to help re-integrate the victims back into their communities as well as provide vaccinations and medical care for residents. And to hear some personal accounts from survivors who had been abducted as children. And in true African tradition, music, performance and dance are a huge part of the healing process so our visit ended with an unforgettable party with rhythms that brought us all to our feet!  This man in particular was a prime example of the strength of the human spirit — and he channeled something deep in my soul as he circled past me. That said, I wanted to ensure the still images I shot didn’t lessen his movement, so I quickly edited this double-exposure on my iphone and hope it does him justice.  Wish I was back there right now... ❤️ @unicef_uk @unicef #motorbike #motorcycle
A boy gets up from a desk inside a marred school. Alanyi, Uganda. ——————————————–––––––———— Once serving as one of the largest IDP (Internally Displaced Person) Camps in Uganda, the condition of the school building is telling of its turbulent history. —————————————————————— Alanyi, located in the Central-Northern District of Lira, was once a hub of operation and terror for Joseph Kony and his Lords Resistance Army (LRA). The LRA waged a religious and political war against the Southern based Ugandan Governments and the Northern Achilles Tribes. For over 22 years Kony ravaged the lands in Northern Uganda, torturing and terrorizing villages and kidnapping tens of thousands of children to use as wives and child soldiers. In total, hundreds of thousands were killed, and 1.5 million were displaced. —————————————————————— Of those displaced, the majority were herded into IDP Camps such as this one, which held nearly 60,000 people. LRA attacks were common on IDP Camps and Soldiers of the UPDF (Ugandan Peoples Defense Forces) we’re often overrun, leaving the camps and its population to the brutal LRA. —————————————————————— Joseph Kony officially fled Uganda in 2008 to the neighboring Democratic Republic Of Congo, where he remains on the run. The last faction of the LRA was pushed out in 2009. Though many still feel rebels are living in the expansive Bush of Uganda’s North. The conflict waged by the LRA has been a defining characteristic of Ugandan culture ever since. The mental and emotional damage it left on the Acholi Peoples of the North is seen only in their interactions and the damaged structures scattered throughout the rural villages. —————————————— www.bradpatocka.com —————————————— #africa #uganda #northernuganda

Three. Colours. Blue. 3/3 - Uganda. Gulu. Confession. Father Guido, an Italian priest gives confession to a rescued boy abductee fighter from the Lords Resistance Army, Gulu, Uganda. The LRA, led by a crazed messianical figure, Joseph Kony claimed to want to govern Uganda by the ten commandments. The rebels abducted young men and women to fight in their ranks often forcing them to commit #atrocities. #photographed #onassignment for @time, the work formed part of a major reportage called The Lord of the Flies examining young men and violence in Africa that previewed at the photojournalism festival @visapourlimage in #pergignan in 1998 #photography #documentaryphotographer #documentaryphotography #socialdocumentary #reportage #reportagephotographer #reportagespotlight #reportagephotography #photojournalism #uganda #gulu #africa #african #lordsresistancearmy #civilwar #acholi #catholic #prayer #childsoldier #everydayeverywhere #blue #leica #colour #kieślowski #archive

"The black represents the bad memories that we still hold in our minds and our hearts." "The yellow is the sun. We see that we have freedom now and can use our voice to speak for our children."
Ten years ago I was working in Sudan and had opportunity to travel with a UN group to meet Joseph Kony, notorious warlord, child abductor, murderer. And also liar. He denied point blank, despite well documented proof, that he had abducted kids and forced them to fight or be sex slaves, killing thousands of them over the years. For decades he played an elusive game with the Ugandan military and more  recently with American troops sent to help track him down and eliminate him. I was reminded of him last week  by a request for an image of his soldiers, and then found reports that a few months ago the Ugandans & Americans had given up on  tracking him, and withdrawn their forces from the region. Kony appears to have escaped justice, and while his army has fragmented and broken into small independent groups, he remains guilty of horrendous crimes.  #warcrimes #photojournalism #abductedchildren #childsoldiers #lordsresistancearmy #josephkony #kony2012 #rebelsoldiers  #ak47 #versace #christiandior #calvinklein #hugoboss

Kinder in einem Dorf in der Nähe von Gulu, Uganda. Zu Zeiten, als Joseph Kony mit seiner LRA in der Region noch Angst und Schrecken verbreitete, sind jeden Abend hunderte Kinder aus den umliegenden Dörfern zum schlafen nach Gulu gelaufen. Die Lords Resistance Army hat tausende Kinder entführt und als Sexsklaven und Soldaten missbraucht. #uganda #josephkony #lordsresistancearmy #gulu #afrika #africa #children #streetsofafrica #streetsofafrika #pearlofafrica
One of the best #comics I've read in years. #unknownsoldier #easykill #joshuadysart #albertoponticelli #uganda #lordsresistancearmy #kony
Uganda and the US have ended a six-year hunt for the fugitive warlord Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army.  Ugandan troops have recorded significant successes. Four key LRA commanders have been captured, and an insurgency of 2,000 fighters that terrorised territories across central Africa has been sharply degraded.  The LRA, now believed to be down to less than 120 armed men, has splintered into small units operating in the remotest regions of eastern CAR, north-eastern Congo, and Darfur.  The conclusion of the mission has left advocacy groups concerned that the failure to “kill or capture” Kony could allow the LRA to rise again.  #josephkony #lordsresistancearmy #lra #uganda #us #searchforjosephkony #africancapsule
