Make Love, Not War @ Camp Okutta

Shocking! Just saw this on TV, and it's really shocking!

The Camp Okutta campaign was designed to draw attention to the issue of child soldiers, by bringing the problem home to North America. Camp Okutta was a fictitious summer camp for ‘kids aged 8-12’. Instead of the usual camp activities, children were made to fire AK47s, throw grenades and walk through minefields – activities more commonly associated with the experiences of child soldiers.

when I was watch it on TV, even thought I know it's not real, it still gave me such a shock, because I know there are some place on earth right now, this is really happening.
If you click into the Camp Okutta web site, there is a flash game(?) in there to show you more about this horrible summer camp. Beware of the picutres / video or text inside, if you don't like what you see, leave the site and go to and see what you can do to help.
I know it's just a campaign by a organization in Canada, but I do believe that everyone in this world should realize this is a problem in our world now, and we should do something to stop this from happening.
