In response to the Kony 2012 video from Invisible Children, Al Jazeera has launched a project called Uganda Speaks, which is, among other things, using the hashtag #UgandaSpeaks, (solid explainer here) to track the reactions to the film from Ugandans in Uganda. 

There was a strong sense from the audience that the video was insensitive to African and Ugandan audiences, and that it did not accurately portray the conflict or the victims. Watching the film was upsetting for many audience members, and a group of viewers nodded their heads in affirmation when one viewer said, “This was very painful to watch, it brings back to me many bad memories and that is not good.”
