Kony 2012 Countdown


Kony 2012 Countdown is a WordPress plugin that counts down to events leading to the arrest and prosecution of Joseph Kony in 2012 for his crimes against humanity. The countdown runs until April 20, 2012 then auto-updates to Jan 1, 2013. Updates will include new events as they are announced.

The countdown is both a sidebar widget and a shortcode that will place a countdown in a post or page. Full documentation is available, as well as free community support.

Help raise awareness of the Invisible Children movement to capture this war criminal and be tried by the International Criminal Court (ICC) as a precedent for future war criminals.
