The Global Night Commute

invisible children

On April 29th, there is going to be a global solidarity movement with the night commuting children of Uganda. The idea is to generate awareness of the 130 people who die every day in Northern Uganda as part of the conflict with the Lord's Resistance Army.

"The Global Night Commute is a worldwide event organized by the Invisible Children, Inc. organization. The Night Commute which will take place on April 29th, 2006, will feature people from around the world converging on urban centers in solidarity with displaced Ugandan children attempting to avoid capture by the LRA.... The Global Night Commute will involve the trek of thousands of men, women and children from around the world into major cities where they will mimic the nightly commute of the Ugandan children by marching en masse from one point to another and sleeping in their final destination for the entire night..."
