Kelowna makes Kony famous
On Saturday morning, several Kony 2012 signs and posters were visible throughout Kelowna.
Most noticeably, a massive green and black Kony banner was placed on both sides of the pedestrian overpass near Parkinson Recreation Centre.
The posters were part of Invisible Children's "cover the night" campaign, which encouraged activists to hang signs and posters to help make Joseph Kony, head of the Lord's Resistance Army, infamous.
The Kony 2012 Internet video went viral last month. As of Saturday it had over 88 million views.
A second Kony video, Beyond Famous, was released on April 5.
