The Cover The Night campaign against Ugandan warlord, Joseph Kony by US-based NGO, Invisible Children, had gone viral a couple of months ago with the release of the documentary KONY 2012. Now, pubs and restaurants in the Capital are creating awareness about the campaign, where supporters across the world will put up posters on April 20, to facilitate Kony's arrest.
Quantum, a nightclub in Noida, on Friday, organised a Dense Truth night, where they played African music and splashed videos, showing the brutality suffered by kids in the hands of Kony.
"The mission is to stand united when a lot of people need us and create awareness," says Suruchi Datta of the nightclub. They will put up a similar show on April 20. Kushagra Nagrath of Second Sin, Saket, has also planned a similar event. "On April 20, we'll show clippings from KONY 2012, and ask people to support the cause," he says.
Out of the Box in Hauz Khas Village is also distributing pamphlets about the warlord, while Royal China in Nehru Place will use Kony pamphlets as their table mats on April 20 and 21. "On April 20 and 21, we'll not play any music in the restaurant for an hour as we want our customers to know the cause the world has joined hands for," says Aashita Relan, director, Royal China.
