You've watched Part 1 of Invisible Children's video exposing the brutality done by Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony.
And now, even with the recent controversy surrounding the foundation's co-founder Jason Russell, the organization has released a second video.
Russell is noticeably absent from the video, but his voice can be heard.
In the new vid, we see more interviews from Africans discussing the rebel conflict and while Kony's Resistance Army has dwindled in size, they still do pose a threat.
Invisible Children's CEO Ben Keesey said the sequel was made quickly, in about two weeks, to try keep the focus on the issue and not Jason Russell.
"It's always hard to keep the momentum on an issue like this, especially because the majority of people watching this have no relationship, no connection to something that is happening thousands of miles away. Our goal is just to create compelling stories to bring back what the point is — which is right now there are people living in fear of violence and being attacked by the LRA and we need to be reminded of that."
Still very, very eye-opening and inspiring. Watch the sequel (above).
