Angelina Jolie Pens 'Economist' Article

Angelina Jolie Pens 'Economist' Article

Angelina Jolie has penned an article for The Economist, a London-based weekly international news and business publication.

According to Britain’s The Guardian, Angie‘s article will be published tomorrow in the Economist‘s annual spin-off issue, The World in 2008. Angie‘s piece covers the “accountability for the atrocities in Darfur” and her photo byline describes her as a “goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.”

Angelina Jolie: Hollywood actress, UN goodwill ambassador, mother-of-four and now author for The Economist!

UPDATE: Here are some quotes:

– “Accountability is perhaps the only force powerful enough to break the cycle of violence and retribution that marks so many conflicts.”
– “I hope that the Sudanese government will hand over the government minister and the Janjaweed militia leader who have been indicted for war crimes (by the International Criminal Court in The Hague), and that the teenager I met in Chad will get the trial he seeks.”
– “I hope that those responsible for the atrocities in Darfur will be held to account, not only for that young man’s sake, but for the world’s.”

When will she just go away!

Good for Angie!

It will almost be interesting to see what kind of twist the “unique contributors” from NL put on this. Anytime I see one of their essays circulated, it is a good laugh. A laugh directed towards the so called writers that is.

Wow! Angelina I am so proud to be your fan. God Bless you and your family. Thank you JJ for posting this thread.

wow no 12 in an angelina post!

I think Angelina should get a Phd in a university somewhere and stop acting. It’s clear how much she wants to show her intellectuality to the UN.

1st page today. :-) Thank you JJ. :-)

She’s definitely not living the Hollywood lifestyle like many others who seem to only be interested in playing & partying. Angelina doesn’t have time for all that garbage. She’s making worthwhile contributions to charities, heavily involved in the UN and penning pieces for The Economist! Way to go Angie.
