Invisible Children works collaboratively with the United Nations to develop ‘surrender fliers’ which encourage the peaceful defection of LRA combatants.
One of the LRA groups in DRC left a written message last week, expressing their desire to surrender. The letter was addressed to UN peacekeepers in DRC and noted the difficulties the LRA were having in the bush. Through a partnership with DDR/RR, a branch of the UN, Invisible Children has designed fliers that give specific instructions on how to peacefully surrender and where to do so. These fliers are being plastered throughout the region where the groups have recently been active. We’ve seen the effectiveness of these fliers in the past, and hope that they provide the information necessary for this particular group of fighters to lay down their arms.
