On April 25 an abduction and rescue event will take place in more than 100 cities around the world, according to a press release from the California-based sponsoring organization Invisible Children Inc.
Protesters will voluntarily kidnap themselves to raise awareness about "child soldier" kidnappings taking place in Uganda.
Invisible Children Inc. was born in in the spring of 2003, when three young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story. As their story reads "what started out as a filmmaking adventure transformed into much more when these boys from Southern California discovered a tragedy that disgusted and inspired them, a tragedy where children are both the weapons and the victims."
After returning to the States, they created the documentary "Invisible Children: Rough Cut," a film that exposes the tragic realities of northern Uganda's night commuters and child soldiers.
