On March 8th, Invisible Children released the video Kony 2012, which went viral. By now, over a hundred million people have watched it, shared it on Facebook and tweeded about it.

Anne-Sophie Braendlin reports on San Francisco’s “Cover the Night” event and delves deeper into the controversy the video has created.
