April 25, 2009: The Rescue

The Rescue 2009 was a global event organized by the Invisible Children organization, meant to raise government and celebrity awareness about child soldiers in Africa. We made a public "abduction" and marched in small groups to a "camp" where we spent the night asking public figures to "rescue" us, in hopes that enough awareness and media attention would pressure world governments to step in and rescue these abducted children and press for peace talks amongst warring Africans. It was fun, especially when one of the founders of Invisible Children came up on a bus with the recently rescued Santa Monica group to join our fight in San Francisco. Shot on Fuji Pro 400 H.
