Using the Kony 2012 video to teach our youth about real global solidarity

Maybe you're like me, and all of a sudden, your child or your students ask, no, insist that you watch the viral video "Kony 2012." "So, like 70 million people have seen it, it's so amazing! You HAVE to see it!" She wants your opinion or he wants your approval because they are totally excited and plan to purchase the kits and go out with friends and plaster "Kony 2012" posters everywhere.

Uganda anti-gay measure sparks global debate

The Ugandan government will put to death gay citizens repeatedly caught having sex and throw into jail those who touch each other in a "gay" way, if a new proposed bill becomes law.

A new bill, the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, seeks to legislate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) people in Uganda. And it wants to pave the way for its harsh treatment of them by nullifying any international treaties, conventions or declarations believed to be contrary to it.

"The bill is so inhumane ... It violates every aspect of a human being. I mean you cannot tell me you will kill me because I'm gay," says Gerald Sentogo, the gay administrator for the organisation Sexual Minorities Uganda.
