Angelina Jolie Visits Refugees in Thailand

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie has called on the Thai government to grant Myanmar refugees in northern Thailand greater freedom of movement.

“I was saddened to meet a 21-year-old woman who was born in a refugee camp, who has never even been out of the camp and is now raising her own child in a camp,” Jolie said after her visit Wednesday to Ban Mai Nai Soi camp.”With no foreseeable chance that these refugees will soon be able to return to Burma (Myanmar), we must find some way to help them work and become self reliant. I hope we can work with the Thai authorities to speed up the government admissions process and that you will not be forced to go back to Burma if danger remains.”

In movie news, Angie will be serving at the executive producer of Resilient, a film that tells the stories of strong women from different countries. Her friend, Mariane Pearl, the widow of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, will interview five women who have overcome tough odds to bring about change in their communities.
