Dozens of Fresno State students camped out on campus overnight to raise awareness of children forced to fight wars in Africa.They're part of the Invisible Children Organization, and their camp is supposed to represent a camp of children forced to fight against the Ugandan government.

Organizers said 90 percent of the soldiers are kids who are abducted and forced into training. But the situation isn't often discussed in the halls of political power.

Similar camp-outs are happening in about a hundred cities.
