Angelina Jolie Urges the UN to Act on Darfur

Darfur has almost disappeared from the news, and experts now call it a "low intensity" conflict. But the intensity of the crisis has not lessened for those who are struggling to survive. . . . Thirty percent of those displaced are school-age children. Girls leaving the [refugee] camps are raped; boys leaving the camps are killed. They want an education; they want to go back to their villages, to their land; they want peace. But they also want justice.

In an op-ed on today, Angelina Jolie attempts to lend some publicity to the crisis in Darfur. Today, the United Nations Security Council will look into the case against Sudanese President Omar al Bashir, who has been indicted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur. Bashir has been accused of taking out his inability to defeat rebels on the civilian population by subjecting it to rape, hunger, and fear. Angelina hopes the UN will act on this indictment and end the suffering in Darfur.

Darfur is very real and unfortunately the senseless killings and injustice is beyond the grasp of most people. Angelina is not illiterate and she does write her own articles. There is a wondeful book called "Notes From My Travels" written by Angelina. Amazon sell it and all the proceeds goes to the UN Children's Fund. It is a terrific read. Yes, she could give up acting and go full board into humanitarian efforts but she is not into politics. But acting gives her the opportunities (money) to make many things happen specially with the worldwide fame she carries. It is call a trade off. Can any of us quit our jobs and pursue our passions. I think not.
