TWO Orange woman passionate about joining the international campaign against Ugandan war criminal Joseph Kony plan to erect anti-Kony posters over Orange in the early hours of April 21.
Jade Mills and Jaye Dean told the Central Western Daily they hoped their participation in the campaign would raise awareness of Kony’s crimes, many of which were perpetrated against children.
Prompted into action as a result of watching the short film Kony 2012, created by the US company Invisible Children, and following instructions given by the film’s makers, the women hope other Orange people will join them and erect posters around the city.
“When I watched the video it really made me sad, it’s such a good video,” Miss Dean said.
Miss Mills said starting a campaign against Kony in Orange reminded people that it was okay to “have a voice” even if you did live in the country.
“Why can’t we have our own opinion in the bush?,” she said.
“If we have to go and put up posters to help stop someone then we’ll do that.”
The pair have used Twitter and Facebook to rally support for their plans and say their family and friends back their actions.
