Angelina Jolie Speaks Up for Nigerian Schoolgirls & Human Trafficking Victims (Video)

Angelina Jolie is continuing to speak up in support of the rescue efforts to find the nearly 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria who were kidnapped last month and to make people look at the bigger picture as well.

“I think we should be very happy that the countries — now the U.K. and U.S are stepping up and wanting to support Nigeria on the ground and doing what they can to try to rescue the girls,” the 38-year-old Maleficent actress told ET Online.

“But I think it’s looking at the bigger picture and understanding this epidemic of men thinking that women don’t have the right to have an education and that they feel that they can get away with this kind of behavior, and that it’s fine to just take a woman and sell a woman or abuse a woman or rape a woman,” she continued.

“We have to end this culture of impunity,” Angelina added. “If people are able to get away with these crime then it will continue and it happened because so many times in the past when women have been taken raped and abused and nobody suffers any consequence for it. it is our fault in many ways that we’ve left this situation in such a way that these men feel that’s it’s something that they could do.”

    She is absolutely right. Stuff like this is absolutely outrageous and it has come to a point where we don’t even bat an eye now. It is amazing to me that I actually have to be reminded of this horror.

    Say if somewhere in the world a whole country of White men decided Black people
    should always belong to a White person
    shouldn’t get an education
    shouldn’t go out by themselves
    shouldn’t own anything
    shoudn’t show their face
    shouldn’t speak
    shouldn’t drive
    could be sold
    could be enslaved
    could be raped
    could be burned with acid
    could be stoned…
    it would cause a humongous, never seen before uproar (and rightly so).
    Women? Nah.

    Kudos to Angelina for taking time to speak out on this horrific crime. All the Nations and their citizens need to add their voices to this chorus of condemnation.
    .
    And someone needs to go get them. THIS is why we still need good and reliable intelligence and, at times, covert activities. Jolie is correct that these types do it because they fear no repercussions.
    .
    I also want to hear Muslim leaders speaking out as well.

    I saw a video at jpforumotion where Angelina revealed that “her shadow” little Vivienne lost her front teeth! She must be looking so adorable. I hope we get to see her and the rest of the kids next time.

    Oh Ho should stop being such a disgusting hypocrite and fake concern for these girls when all she wants is to sell a movie. She didn’t care when she bribed corrupt officials in Namibia to shut down the country’s airspace, nor she did when she bought little Tena/Yemsrach in an orphanage and created a fictitious background for her. I guess JJ doesn’t feel any remorse as he’s simply fulfilling his contractual obligation.
    .
    And LOL at the Ho’s pathetic effort, her ignorance shines through and she can’t help but to stay the obvious. “We have to stop this, they can’t get away with this, we must do something”… straight out of those speeches she gives everywhere when she’s on her self-promotional tours. Does anybody doubt that she paid $5 million for that UN rank now? Shameless self-promoter.
    .
    It never ceases to amaze me how there’s nothing sacred to this vile woman.

    Ⱦamsin Says:

    It would be truly an embarrassment if anyone were to listen to the vile, opportunistic cries of a vapid celebrity who only uses these situations to further their own agentda, but it is even more absurd when someone uses this site as their news source. Shame on all the tabloid addled psychos!

    Good to see Anne Hathaway out there in the streets raising a ruckus over this. Don’t ever underestimate the effect a lot of noise can make.

    Good for Anne.

    @Dawne:
    he is losing his mind at all the good press Angelina has had this week. As if Angelina even knows he exists or gives an eff about his opinion. All the ranting and raving, for what purpose? She is still loved and admired Worldwide

    @Ⱦamsin:

    You don’t know the meaning of embarrassment. If you do, you would waste your time on someone you hate. How many years have you wasted your time. Fcvking hypocrite.

    Jolie fight against impunity Says:

    Angelina Jolie become a powerful and respected woman and a leader in the world.

    When she speaks the world listening. It is the respect and admiration that she was able to achieved after years of hard and persistent work in humanitarian issues that enables that her voice to be heard.

    The Impunity is the big question for Angelina. Until the perpetrators of a crime against humanity of a person do not be arrested, judge and condemned she will not rested.

    Angelina make the fight against the Impunity one of the priorities in her humanitarian work.

    Angelina is loved by all world because any person knows that she is a honest and brave woman and when she talks or work in one subject it´s because she will work hard to achieved results.

    I´m with Angelina always, she is the most beautiful woman but it´s because her talent and great mind that make her a Great Woman. A real Goddess, a Queen, the Queen Angie. Kiss

    If Putrid drunk dials Stella tonight they’ll have more than Brad to talk about because a few days ago Stella was hanging out with Kate Bosworth at a fashion show. Right after Putrid gets done quizzing Stella about Brad and hating on Angie for being thinner than her without exercising 3 hours a day she’ll nag at Stella for being a traitor for still being friends with a former friend who fvcked CM behind her back. That’s the think with Putrid’s insular little world of stuck-up biitches – eventually they all turn on each other. She’ll have a falling out with Stella sooner rather than later.

    Being dumped may serve to humble this snob…….she seriously needs to do something with her life other than tell the rest of us how to buy a twenty dollar organic lettuce……….
