You may have heard of a film called Invisible Children – Rough Cut. Made by three young Americans, it’s a haunting documentary about Uganda’s child soldiers – those thousands of children kidnapped by the Lord’s Resistance Army and forced to become violent weapons in Africa’s longest running war.

In the past 6 years, it’s been seen by close to 7 million people around the globe, spurring a generation of young people into action, and prompting world leaders to push for peace in Central Africa.

A team from the Invisible Children organisation is in Australia this week raising awareness. Manager of the tour, Jamie Roach joined us recently.
