Angelina Jolie Spotlights Child Soldiers

Angelina Jolie Spotlights Child Soldiers

Angelina Jolie attends the trial of a Congolese warlord charged with using child soldiers held at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, on Tuesday (May 19).

The 33-year-old activist said the case against Thomas Lubanga is a “landmark trial for children.” She continued, “Children deserve special protection. Using children in conflict is a heinous crime and destroys the very fabric of a society. I imagined how difficult it must be for all the brave young children who have come to testify against him.”

One ICC attendee added, “I notice the petite figure which was supported by those shoes and that it was Angelina Jolie! She is much more beautiful in person than in any magazine or interview. If that’s what she looks like in print then she is not very photogenic… she spoke French to her colleagues.” More about Angie at Lauraware!

The United Nations estimates up to 250,000 child soldiers still fight in more than a dozen countries.

so proud of her

at last!! how i missed angie! she is going to conquer the world! love love this woman of substance…

What an amazing woman! So we’ll be seeing great Cannes pictures tomorrow :-)

Finally some Angelina, love her! What a gorgeous, sophisticated profile she has! Think Brad once said she was very regal-like (when he was talking about how Knox was like him, but Vivienne was like Angelina) and you can definetely see that in this pic, she has great posture, a true beauty, inside and out.

TRUTH HURTS. @ 05/19/2009 at 2:06 pm

Angelina will always take time off for things that are important. Brangelina will takeover Cannes tommorow. I can’t wait. 1-800-suicide. Haters please call and get help. Reserve your padded room before tomorrow.

Cool.. She is a real rolemodel for the humankind

CHILDREN SUICIDE BOMBERS TOO @ 05/19/2009 at 2:08 pm

What about all those children suicide bombers out there too.. who strap bombs on their chest and drilled in their heads that it is their
job to blow up people and a town..and you will go to heaven..!!

Those are things that need to be addressed too..! Imagine what is
going to happen to all the children once the trial is finished.. guess
what will happen to them..

Is that a picture from the actual trial or an archieve pic from a movie?

That’s a great thing for her to be apart of, I love how much her passion shines through in anything she does you can tell she really cares!

I am crying like a girl…what a heart & compassionate lady!!
I love you dear Angelina a lil’ more today.
tx for putting light on this IMPORTANT trial.
Only you could bring such a light on a subject usually
would be buried on page 10 in a paper.

Awesome. This is the aspect of Angie that I love the most. She could care less about Cannes or the Academy Awards, protecting and helping the world’s children are her true passion and this is what she is all about. I would much rather read about her experience in The Hague than see her and Brad on the red carpet, although that is always nice too :-) Kudos to Angie for attending the trial and bringing attention to it because let’s face it, most people (including myself) had no clue this trial was even taking place until reading about Angie being there.
And I hope Thomas Lubanga either rots in prison or better yet gets the firing squad and ends up dying a slow and painful death with a shot in the belly.

BRAD HAS TO HAVE angie @ 05/19/2009 at 2:13 pm

Brad did it he is not famous without Angie .. She is the one that made
him famous..!!! She will always be attached ..Imagine if he showed
up alone at Cannes without her….Did the press line alone..while she
went back to NYC and finished her movie..


Andrómeda @ 05/19/2009 at 2:14 pm

I admire her so much!.
Proud to be her fan.

Passing Through @ 05/19/2009 at 2:15 pm

I hope all the complainers are happy now. Thanks, Jared.

She is beautiful — inside and out. :-)

Tattoo on her arm – it’s different now?!
