Natalie Portman: Unite for Syria, Stop Bloodshed

The 30-year-old actress recently voiced her concern for Syria by penning a handwritten note with a simple message.
“Unite for Syria. Stop one year of bloodshed. #Syria 15 March,” she wrote last month during the first anniversary of the country’s conflict.
Natalie was just one of a handful of celebs who pitched in to help draw attention to the situation.
“We hope they will help impress on the Syrian government and its few remaining supporters, including Russia, that the rest of the world will not turn a blind eye while mass atrocities are committed against the civilian population,” Philippe Bolopion, UN director at Human Rights Watch in New York, explained. “It was conceived as a show of solidarity to Syrian victims who must feel abandoned by the UN Security Council, whose hands have been tied by Russia and China.”
